I have a good bit of Curiousity tonight. She---Curiousity---has settled on my lap, and doesn't plan on moving. That's fine. We just returned from dinner at Chen's and I'm feeling fed and content. Much of this is because I spoke to my oldest sister tonight for thirty minutes. She has Lupus and early-onset Alzheimer's disease, and she spends a lot of time in bed. Her husband has Chron's disease and struggles with his health, too. Today she was awake and out of bed when I called, so we were able to talk. My brother-in-law was napping and didn't listen in on the conversation. He does that now, so he knows what she's saying. There was little confusion from her, and we talked about ordinary things. My nephew's fiancé is having a girl, and my sister's name will be her middle name. I told her about the pickle my husband got himself into yesterday(see previous post) and we laughed. She even went hunting for my nephew's address and phone number, because I asked if she would give it to me. Nice ordinary things. I contacted another sister and told her "Call now. She's awake."

I'm realizing just how many valuable things I have. My memory, sense of humor, friends, and family. We don't struggle, but have enough. I don't pine for things like jewelry or trips or designer clothes. I don't purchase something because I'm in a store or if it's on sale. I think having too many possessions is a trap, because then you have to look after those items. If you do, it's more work for you, and if you don't there's no point in owning the item. One prayer I sometimes use is asking God to let us "have what we need and need what we have." And I do have that, every day. I wish my big sister could have that too. Instead, she has poor health, a lot of debt, a twenty-nine-year-old mentally handicapped child who's never be forced to be responsible for much. My niece, mentally, has a top age of thirteen. They are hoarders and I'm afraid one day she'll fall over something and be seriously hurt. So, I pray for her and count my blessings. Because my life is happy.




I don't know why I love her like I do
All the changes you put me through
Take my money, my cigarettes
I haven't seen the worst of it yet
I wanna know that you'll tell me
I love to stay
Take me to the river, drop me in the water
Take me to the river, dip me in the water
Washing me down, washing me down

I don't know why you treat me so bad
Think of all the things we could have had
Love is an ocean that I can't forget
My sweet sixteen I would never regret

I wanna know that you'll tell me
I love to stay
Take me to the river, drop me in the water
Push me in the river, dip me in the water
Washing me down, washing me

Hug me, squeeze me, love me, tease me
Till I can't, till I can't, till I can't take no more of it
Take me to the water, drop me in the river
Push me in the water, drop me in the river
Washing me down, washing me down

I don't know why I love you like I do
All the troubles you put me through
Sixteen candles there on my wall
And here am I the biggest fool of them all

I wanna know that you'll tell me
I love to stay
Take me to the river and drop me in the water
Dip me in the river, drop me in the water
Washing me down, washing me down.
