Missing you all - not able to get on very often - sing on snappers!
I am a Scottish/Dutch/English (and a wee bit French) American Canadian living in the U.S.A. (OK I'm a mutt but I don't mind!) Dad was a Scotsman from Canada and mom Pennsylvania Dutch from the U.S.
I have 5 autoimmune diseases RA, Lupus, Sjogrens, Fibromyalgia, Celiac, and regular osteoarthritis too, asthma, trochanteric bursitis, degenerative disc and joint diseases, and now nerve damage from my autoimmune diseases and tons of allergies....I sing because it makes me happy.
Do you have a bucket list? I do - maybe someday I will fill them - sometimes though I realize that it won't matter either way. Just enjoying the blessings I do have is the best way to go through life. I have never seen an ocean though - would really like to see one someday.
I'm just here to sing for therapy it helps me through some of my rough days battling these autoimmune diseases. If I don't make it around please forgive me it may be a day I can't get out of bed. Life is what it is and I've learned to not look toward a future but just live one day at a time.
May those who love us, love us.
And those who don't love us,
May God turn their hearts;
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles,
So we will know them by their limping.
My Wishes for You:
Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness intrudes,
Rainbows to follow the clouds,
Laughter to feed your lips,
Sunsets to warm your heart,
Gentle hugs when spirits sag,
Friendship to brighten your day,
Confidence when you doubt,
Faith so that you can believe,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
And LOVE to complete your life.....
I enjoy genealogy research and have some interesting characters in my lineage. The Duke of Wellington, Sir Francis Drake, and some of the founding fathers of the U.S. and an interesting ship captain for Canada that was honored at:
St. Mark's Anglican Church Niagara on the Lake
with a monument to Lt. David Cowan U.E., R.N. 1742 - 1808
United Empire Loyalist and agricultural advisor and gardener to
President George Washington
Someday I hope to come and see that monument. He was instrumental in bringing my Cowan ancestors to Canada. On my mom's side my Great many greats uncle Drake was helping George Washington plan the war and there is a museum in Piscataway NJ in the Drake home where they planned it. Someday I hope to visit that as well. His sister was my ancestor.
