I guess we all have our Demons Bowtie, and we try to deal with them in our own private way. Sometimes they surface where all can see, and all we want to do is crawl back in our shell. Some how we have to not want to crawl and hide but to face those demons and fight back.
Thanks Bowtie for sharing this, it's another step in showing we are all human.
There has been a black cloud hanging over me lately. The sun can't get through, just shows on the outer edges but the edges are far away and I hear thunder. The sky shakes, the house rattles and I get real scared. Then I realize I'm not in combat anymore. It's just the weather, and then I get up off the floor. My heart still races and my hands shake badly and I then realize that it's just a flashback of my time in the military. Those flashbacks don't come very much anymore but when they do they are so real. This is the first time I've had one in about 2 years. I thought that devil had left me but he reminds me he is still hanging around and I just have to deal with it the best way I can. I hate it........................
Happiness has many fragrances.This is just one of them for you,angel... :-)
There's nothing like the fragrance of apple blossoms in the Spring. Very nice Eve,,what a beautiful memory to cherish.
APPLE BLOSSOMS IN THE RAIN
When I was a little girl,,,we had apple trees in the back yard,,,,,they produced little green tart apples,,,,good with a little salt sprinkled on them,,,,,but, the special thing about those apple trees was, when they were blooming, they were absolutely beautiful,, and when it rained the fragrance of the blossoms was greatly enhanced. The little country school that I attended was a mile and a half from our home, and often, I cut through the neighboring farmers fields, instead of sticking to the road. When I approached those trees in my back yard, right after a summer shower, the air was redolent with the sweet smell of those wet blossoms. I will never forget that fragrance.
very nice, bob...thx for sharing... :)
thx wolfie,,,loved the story...
Nice Story, Wolfy. Very nice!!!
Back when I was 15 years old my German Shepherd got ill and I took him to the vets and the the bill end up going into the thousands to save his life. I didn't want to ask my parents to pay for it but I couldn't afford it also. The owner of animal hospital knew my family from all the past veterinary work we'd had done there in years past. The Vet offered to let me work there after school and on weekends to pay off my debt. I worked very hard as a kennel helper. I worked for these people for about a month when Dr. Douglas (owner) came to me and said I was doing a great job and wanted me to stay, needless to say I accepted.
I worked for this animal hospital for about 11 years. We saw many of their wolves almost on a weekly basis, I got to know each of the pack members as the weeks, months and years went by. The pack really started to get to know me and trust me more and I developed much more of a relationship with these wolves. At this point I was like Jim Dutcher from the documentary Living with Wolves. I was completely captivated by these animals, the love they have for one another and their devotion to their family is inspiring! Even the life omega wolf meant so much to all the pack members, in the doc it's looks like they don't like the omega but that's simply not true, wolves are often very nice to the omega as well and would kill anyone outsider of their pack for messing with any pack member, unfortunately that's just the way life is in a hierarchy system that wolves employ. My love for wolves grew to a point where I thought about them all the time and wanted to be with as much as possible. The people who run the wolf sanctuary really got to know and like me through working with me at the animal hospital. I asked them if I could volunteer on weekends to work at the sanctuary so I could work and play with them more, they agreed (a lot of wolf sanctuaries need volunteers to help cut their expenses, I was more than happy to do it). When summers rolled around while many kids were doing kid things I spent my summers at the wolf sanctuary doing what I loved most and that was being with them.
I miss the wolves so much and I think about them all the time, they were such a big part of my life as I was growing up into manhood. I'll never forget what they brought to my life.... peace, joy, happiness is a few words that come to mind. I know all the wolves I knew back then have long since passed away and I haven't kept in touch with the sanctuary in recent years as life just has a way of making you lose touch with people and wolves but I miss them all so much, wish I could go back in time and live that magical moment of my life all over again! There's my story! Awoooooooooooooo! Woof!!
