Poverty Hill's 1st Annual Holiday

Wavin, hey everyone out there, hope yall are doing good. Today has been a rainy, messy day around this neck of the woods. All the leaves around here have been turning beautiful red and orange colors, but with all this rain, now the only thing they are turning is turning loose. Time to break out the old rake and leaf blower, turn up the oxygen and get with it. I can think of a million things I'd rather do than rake leaves.........ughhhhhhh. At least I can put up the lawn mower for a while, it's like me, it needs a good rest anyway.
I've been in deep and heavy deliberation this week with my cabinet members, Levi(my dog)and Jazz(my cat), and we have decided to come up with a new holiday for Poverty Hill. Seeing as how I am the main governing body(when Judi lets me be) here
on the Hill I am declaring November 15, 2008, the first official Pulmonary Hypertension Care Giver Day. I'm sending Miss Judi to the beauty shop to get overhauled, tucked, poked, primped and fancied up and I'm gonna take her out to a fancy restaurant where those folks cook your food for ya. As all of you know just like I do, this could never even come close to thanking them for the things that they do for us. There are no words that an ole country bumkin like me could come up with to tell mine how much I thank her for all the times shes worried if I was going to make it through this hospital stay, for the times she's prepared my meds and made sure I took them on time, for the times she's did things that I used to take care of, but couldn't this time because I was so sick I was unable to do them, and the list goes on and on. I'm sure you're like me, these things don't go unnoticed, but sometimes there just are no words to express how we feel. At times we all feel like a burden, not being able to do the things we used to do, but our loved ones don't see it like that, they stand with us and fight this fight against sometimes unbearable odds but never ask a things for themselves. Yes we fight the fight, but just take a glance around you and I bet there's someone within yelling distance, watching and listening, ready to make sure that nothing happens to you. Like I said there just isn't enuff words in the webster than can show how much we appreciate them. SO:

We Love You, We Thank You, We Appreciate you, We Admire You and we're all glad that you are in our lives.

Take time to let you caregivers know, it's the least we can do for them that do so much for us.

Well all this proclamatin and and holiday declarin has give me out, Yall Come when ya can, the door is always open to my friends, and don't forget this is Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness month, try to make one person aware and together we can make many.

Hugz N Handshakes

You've given me an epiphany TW - what a great post - I agree, this post needs to hit the boards - you've succeeded in changing more lives than you know once we implement the plan of action

TW - all I can say is wow. I wish I had someone in my life to help me out - then I could say thanks.

I hope your wife enjoyed herself with all the pampering, I'm sure the dinner was awesome.

Thank you to all the care givers.
