Happy Holidays and a Shiny New Year filled with lots of love and good cheer!
The Ninth Pãramitã: Loving Kindness (mettã) means ‘good will’ in all our actions.
My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness. ~ The 14th Dali Lama
Kindness is the light that dissolves all walls between souls, families, and nations. ~ Paramahansa Yogananda
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Is there any one maxim which ought to be acted upon throughout one’s whole life? Surely the maxim of loving kindness is such. ~ Confucious
May your hearts and homes be filled with Loving Kindness now and always.
Love from Candi, Austin, Ellie, Marcus, Jose & Katey
This time of year it always seems we notice those missing from our lives a little bit more. It seems harder to get on with the days without them here. Hold your family close at the holidays and everyday… you just don’t know what’s around the corner. So for all those faces & voices & hugs & kisses that will be missed at the table this Christmas – I still hold you all in my heart and miss you dearly.
Trying out a new photo album… it seems to be a little cleaner looking with faster navigation. Still working on the look and feel of it. And the pics are not all commented or in any order, so bear with me on that one!
Wednesday – 12-yr old son is sniffling and blowing his nose
Thursday morning – 12-yr old son is coughing like an emphesema patient so I take him to the walk-in, antibiotics and albuterol are prescribed (damn inhaler is $45 AFTER insurance)
Friday – Boy twin is coughing and girl twin is sniffling
Saturday morning – Take twins to the walk-in, albutero with nebulizer is prescribed
Saturday night – Vaporizer and heater in the bedroom, twinnies aren’t eating like they should and son one needs to be ‘reminded’ to take his antibiotics — on the up side I think I’m getting enough residual meds that I probably won’t get sick (X crossing fingers X)
Sunday – Twinnies REALLY don’t like the nebulizer and it makes them shake and cry and generally unhappy, not sure it’s worth it — spacing the treatments out a little more, added pedialite to the menu so they are at least getting some liquids, Daddy is coughing…
Boy Oh Boy… just can’t wait for school to start so we can go thru this with a different virus every week!
