This is my first written breast cancer story. Never did I think I would be so emotional, sitting in my general practitioner’s office crying because without even trying I lost seventeen (17) pounds of fat within a few months. But breast cancer does that to a person….. makes you cry, …
Once again I will illustrate what an opinionated and callous man he could be. And hysterical, if one could remove their emotions and ego from the situation. This is by far one of his best moments – one of the most humorous dad stories he could have left us with.
People fascinated with reincarnation stories and exploring the possibilities of reincarnation ties in their lives are always reading and searching for the one past life story that they will resonate with the most. The story may be one of a child’s connection and memories, the past life regression that turned up a past life in a nonbeliever, a dream that started the unending search for someone, or the chance meeting that enveloped an awakening of possibilities that cannot be explained. A slideshow of novels on reincarnation fiction.
Women’s fiction novels with main characters over age fifty-five, stories about relationships and self realization on the life journey. Women characters over sixty sharing the spiritual and emotional gifts, the physical changes. New dramas with more complex humor and strength than when younger. Some women who find they truly love for the first time. Some understand how to temper hate and pain when they thought it would never be possible.
The Young Balboas. The Postmistress. Husbands May Come and Go But Friends Are Forever. Around Every Corner. A Breath Floats By. First Wives Club. Year of Pleasures. Women characters over forty in contemporary fiction have transcended from backdrop mothers of perfectly lovely daughters to women who face challenges and love head-on. A wide selection of contemporary mature women’s fiction, age thirty-eight to sixty. Women change and grow. Their life journey takes them to an untidy, imperfect ending of the novel quite often. But as women readers know, especially women of a certain age, this imperfect ending is life. It’s the roads we choose on the path before us and how we deal with that ending when we get there that makes all the difference.
To my defense, once upon a time I always scooped them up to take them outside and make a nice plot of leaves and stones for them to live under far from the house, just like I do for the mice. To my defense, I used to take my hanging lamps apart to get the fake ladybugs out before they fried their little feet on the bulbs. And when they fry they stink too. And now here she is on the windowsill, still staring at me, dead or dying. While I am trying to work. The story that gives my hubby the warm fuzzies. Not really.
Like we told you, they take getting used to. You have to point your nose at what you want to read. . . . Ah yes, point your nose at it! What that means to me is point your nose at the BOOK! Point your nose at the cereal box. Point your nose at the up-close computer monitor. Not the three words you want to read.
Forgive me if I am a bit cranky, but that is what the exotics pets said to me. The elder, smart-arsed cat said I am essentially a turnip. Rule number one with exotic pets, very old dogs and grandfather-like cats is to never break routine no matter how cold you are or unglamorous you look…. Do I hear the cat upchucking? Are the skunks in his food already? Oh man, lots of windows. Snowplow guy can see me. I cover my abundant bikini-clad arse with the not-large-enough blue dog bowl. Wade through skunks to get in the door. Shuffle through the kitchen with a pant leg dragging. No puke. No no, wait for it…
