Blessings

Last night, The Worm and I finally watched The Notebook, our latest Netflix choice that we've had for weeks. Netflix works out really well for us because it's usually weeks before we can get ourselves into a movie-watching mood, and this way we actually get that way sooner because we want to get a new movie in.

This movie, however, touched us both - by the end of it we were both sobbing (I ended up openly weeping) as The Worm grabbed a box of Kleenex from the nightstand. The love story, of course, was so heartbreakingly touching but the Alzheimer's got me in a way I wasn't expecting. It's been so long since I was faced directly with it, and it brought back in full clarity watching my great-grandmother go through every terrible stage of it over a ten year period.

On a lighter note, though, it must've put The Worm in a thoughtful mood because he came up to me this morning, cupped my face in his hands and stared at my sleepy-eyed self for a few moments before saying, "Thank you for loving me."

Whatever else happens to me in this lifetime, I can say that I was truly blessed to have been loved - and to have loved - some very remarkable men this particular trip around the Sun.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues
    of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has
    a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but
    it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do
    you know any ways to help protect against content from
    being ripped off? I'd definitely appreciate it.

    I think everything typed was very logical. But, think on this,
    suppose you added a little content? I ain't saying your content isn't good.,
    but suppose you added something that grabbed people's
    attention? I mean Digitopus » Blog Archive » Blessings
    is kinda boring. You ought to peek at Yahoo's front page
    and note how they create article headlines to grab viewers to click.

    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab
    people interested about what you've got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform
    you're working with? I'm looking to start my own blog soon but
    I'm having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different
    then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog.
    It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's tough to
    get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you've done a great job with this.

    Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on Safari. Excellent
    Blog!

    May I simply just say what a relief to find an individual who truly understands what they're discussing online.
    You actually understand how to bring an issue
    to light and make it important. More and more people must check this
    out and understand this side of the story. I can't believe
    you aren't more popular given that you definitely possess the
    gift.

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress
    on several websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to tell someone!
