In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
Albert SchweitzerThank you all of you in Blogville, who have rekindled my spirit as I have dealt with the death of my only brother and Barkley, the loss of some of our Blogville friends, and the rapid decline of my 98-year-old Dad, the only remaining member of my family. He's outlived two wives and two children and I've done all I can to keep him in his home of 70 years til the end (he refused to move in with family) even if it means round the clock nursing and lots of flights back and forth to check on him. I don't mind the financial part of it when his monies ran out, but the worry is a shawl I wear on a daily basis and your friendship has helped greatly.
