Life’s Just Funny Like That

So, yesterday, I got ditched by some guy who claimed he was my friend.  He made it clear we were no longer friends and, to put the icing on the cake, he threw my religion in my face.  I give as good as I get and reminded him that he claimed to be a tolerant, accepting #Christian and, surely, wasn’t acting like a good Christian.  I’m #Wiccan and, he just doesn’t understand.  He closed his mind.  That’s fine by me.  I don’t need negative people like him in my life.  The one who claims to be so fine and upright is the first person to cast the stone.  Life’s just funny like that.  

It didn’t bother me much to lose that person because the friendship wasn’t real.  I see how cruel he is that he can be mean to someone like me who is sick and really needs friends for support and understanding.  I said a prayer for him in hopes that his negativity be turned into positive vibes.  I will do no harm.  I’m not into black magic.  I have practiced for thirty years and do not go against the creed. Ye do no harm, and so, I will just wish him well and pray that his black heart will be mended.  The one that spews the most negativity is the one that needs the most love.  Again, life’s just  funny like that.Image

Daisy the bunny is growing noticeably larger.  I would expect nothing less.  She is, after all, eating and drinking on a very regular basis.  This bunny wants to live.  She has a zest for life that inspires me.  She is such a fighter!  Funny how such a little thing can have so much heart.  Life’s just funny like that.

Lastly, I got my call about refilling my #Gammagard infusion for the month and, got great news!  I can go down to two needles per infusion instead of four.  This is going to make it so much easier to rotate sites.  I can’t put them into my thighs as they bleed too much and, I can only use the back of one arm because I had #compartment syndrome in the left arm and, using it is out of the question.  I’m so happy about this one tiny change.  I don’t mind sticking myself, but two sticks is a reduction of infection risk and, I’m all for that. Sometimes, things do go my way.  Life’s just funny like that.

I guess I’ll end there so I can go get ready to go to the #VFW to see my friends and watch the ball game…big #Cardinals fan here.  Maybe they’ll even win tonight.  I’ll think positive.  Us native #St. Louisans know that our boys know how to lead us into #Red October-Life’s just funny like that.

Lions are strictly a service organization and all funds are raised by members’ projects – BBQ’s, Trivia Night, yard sales, snow cone & popcorn sales, an annual golf tournament, dinners with Texas Hold ‘em and, an occasional raffle. New this year is our Breakfast at Arnold’s Farmers’ Market. Fun and fulfillment comes with the comaraderie and joy of our events which in turn help so many.

Monthly lunches for Spinal Ward patients at Jefferson Barracks Hospital, Christmas baskets for area families in need, scholarship funds through Voice of Democracy and Patriots Pen essay contests for area students, knowledgeable help for returning military men and women, facilitating monthly visit, with lunch, to Henges’ Shooting Range for paralyzed veterans, Veterans’ Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas (Santa, too) dinners and, a New Years Day breakfast make for an active schedule. 
Many fund raisers take place throughout the year – an annual Golf Tournament, monthly dinners, raffles, trivia, dances and even an occasional USO Show – something for everyone.
