My thoughts on the Religious Freedoms Bill.

Discrimination happens with or without the Religious Freedom Bill.. This bill would not & should not have been needed had some followed a simple rule called respect.. If you respect someone you will not force them to do something against their will or belief. Rather, you would simply agree to disagree, wish them a good day & move on.The government should stop wasting tax dollars legislating on issues that most adults SHOULD be capable of deciding on their own.. It's your right, just remember, your rights end at the tip of my nose. Just my two cents & my only comment on this matter.

One word I have grown to HATE..

One word I have grown to HATE is the word "burden". You are fearfully & wonderfully made. God knew you before you were even formed in the womb. Most of all you must know, God DOES NOT much junk. He has a purpose for you. Stay strong & surround yourself with a positive support system.

Know your neighbors & watch your back.

You have no idea how bad I want to fortify this house. A six foot, (at least), electrified fence would be a good start.. Sadly, the law does not allow this. When we first moved back to Indiana, I felt fairly secure. In my mind I was thinking a fresh start in a new neighborhood, which included three houses, (including ours) & a health clinic, how bad could it be? Well, let's just say I had NO idea.. Between the drug house on the corner & a child molester just around the corner, I have not felt very safe. Since then, both situations have been rectified, but I still feel uneasy.. I keep reminding myself of what I said when we first moved back, "Terre Haute is not as bad as Bayou George (near Panama City)." However, that is of little comfort when this crap is taking place a little too close to home. I am writing this to hopefully get it out of my mind.

Two years later & I return..

So much has happened in 2yrs. My newest shunt is now 5yrs old. We have moved back to Indiana from Florida due to medical reasons. I am back to square one trying to relocate my dad etc... One thing is for sure everything happens for a reason. It brings me back to a familiar theme in my posts, Family. You can be as rich as Bill Gates or as poor as a church mouse, without the love of God & family, you are broke & broken. Growing up, I never had a sense of belonging. I was always different, both physically (due to my Hydrocephalus a.k.a. "Water on the Brain") & emotionally.  It seemed the only thing I could relate to was animals. For the most part, this is still true. I have discovered through the years that having a love & appreciation for animals seems to be a family trait as well. A gift passed down from both sides of the family. This coupled with a few other realizations have strengthened my resolve to fight for both. Without the unconditional love & support of my family & the animals, I'd be dead. Allow me to explain, as I have said, I have a physical disability. I also have a stubborn streak. I only go to the Dr. when absolutely necessary. Animals are very intuitive, they can sense when something is not right with their human. In 2010, I underwent my 4th/5th brain surgery, after the spinal fluid leaked throughout my body almost costing me my life. At the time when I entered the emergency room the Cerebral Spinal Fluid had began leaking into the areas around my heart. They had found a 5mm gap in my shunt tubing. My animals knew something was wrong with me long before I did. My animals, much like my human family have been there for me every step of the way. Now, I am focused on holistic medicine, both for my pets & myself. I have come to finally comprehend that a lifetime of prevention is better than spending years hoping for a cure. I encourage everyone to do their research, the quest for knowledge & self improvement should never end. I do plan on blogging more often, it keeps my mind free & active ..
