Adventurous Journey by Tarek Selim

Adventurous journey….

The serenity of the seas takes us into a dream like atmosphere, whether we are in a speed boat or just laying on the beach seeing the waves in wave out~

image

Mesmerizing our thoughts
or Listening to the waves slamming it’s forces on the rocks~

Then all of a sudden sea gulls pulls our attention from their high pitch squeaks and we realize Nature is Awesome…

As we gather our journey back to reality~~~Why did it end so sudden~~~

A True Story From An Avid Ocean Lover Lord~~~~

Moments of Meditation: Sometimes in life, we don’t know where we’re going…

Moments of Meditation

“Sometimes in life , we don’t know where we’re going …
We keep going anyway”…

Just as my dear friend Theresa said in her her quote, sometimes we don’t know really what we’re doing but we learn as we go along.

Have you ever done that in life?

No sooner do you feel like you’re flying by the seat of your pants and then somehow you find the strength, and abilities to accomplish things you never thought possible.

But, in reality you werent doing it alone at all. You had a Silent Faithful Partner called God walking alongside you.

When faced with battles, if we live a prayerful life, we will find strength with the fortitude, combined with inner wisdom that is our “homing device” that guides us home.

Love, not pity, was 5-year-old Julianna Yuri Snow’s lesson

Julianna Snow’s Light will never ever grow dim. I am saddened that the world will not be graced by her presence any longer. For never having met her, she touched my heart and soul in a way nobody has.”

Of all the photos I created, this one reminds me of Julianna Yuri Snow the most.

God bless your wonderful, sweet courageous soul Julianna Yuri Snow.

You touched my heart and I never got to meet you.

Your story touched me and because I am a caring lady,  tears are streaming down my cheeks,  which us not what you wanted, but I love tea parties too and only wished you could have experienced many MORE of them!

My most sincere condolences to the extraordinary Snow Family. You are as courageous as your sweet daughter, just in a different, supportive way.

Even Cheap Meals Influence Doctors’ Drug Prescriptions, Study Suggests

Even Cheap Meals Influence Doctors’ Drug Prescriptions, Study Suggests
http://www.wsj.com/articles/even-cheap-meals-influence-doctors-drug-prescriptions-study-suggests-1466434801

It’s disconcerting to think that doctors can be bought with bribes and I know pharmaceutical companies give all sorts of kickbacks to have their doctors prescribe their drugs.

When the doctor takes the Hippocratic oath to be a doctor what’s the newly decorated cakes PhD after his or her name you would think but here she wouldn’t ship it himself being a nerd X commissions if you will like a Salesman getting a spiff. Is a disabled American citizen the spokesperson for others who are disabled, doctors use discretion and do what’s best for the patient. The doctor’s choices should be solely based and what’s good for that patient only.

Mom at 16 and dad in the Air Force about the time they met in 1949.

Today is my mom’s birthday and it’s a sad day mainly because she’s in California and I’m here in Las Vegas, Nevada.

I can’t talk to her by phone mainly because the phone confuses her and she doesn’t really know what to do with it. To say she is not the same mom I used to know is an understatement. She is still wonderful and kind and sweet and will always be my dear mother. Alzheimer’s disease took away her joy, and her love of all created things that she once had like playing the piano and cooking it sewing and painting and all those things. That’s why the painting on the wall but I now look at this equates to a Rembrandt to me because that painting will never exist again.

There are many cognitive impairments with Alzheimer’s disease and I only she escapes the worst scenarios and that God is kind to both of us.

I know she knows I love her deep in her heart and soul and she will always love me.

This newsletter is a Living Legacy to my Mother Ramona Le Pore. I knew I couldn’t halt the progression of the disease, and I could have power and those who are caregivers like I was and educate the wiring about topics relating to dementia, memory, hereditary factors, what you can do to minimize the risk inheriting Alzheimer’s disease, and what can be done if you’re diagnosed with it. This month I’ll be teaming up with hopefully The Alzheimer’s Association, that I volunteered my time for on a regular basis when I helping take care of my grandmother Ruby heart my mother’s mother who was diagnosed with it.

Mom was my grandmother’s caregiver and I was hoping my mother didn’t aquire it, but she did. I hope to God and am saying some of the biggest prayers in the world that I never acquire it.

It would be a godsend if my mother didn’t suffer in the end, and it would also be really extraordinary if she would remember who I am, but there is no guarantees. Alzheimer’s disease is a very merciless disease, which is why I want to raise money to help find a cure for it.

I also want to help raise money to find the cures for cancer and epilepsy too.

O Tree of Calvary by Chandran Devanesen, India

Oh Tree of Calvary
Send your roots deep down
Into my heart.
Gather together the soil of my heart,
The Sands of my fickleness,
The stones of my stubbornness,
The mud of my desires,
Bind them all together,
Oh Tree of Calvary,
Interlace them with your strong roots,
Entwine them with the network
Of your love.
