What Are These Crazy People Doing?

This is a picture I took of Crazy Sarah and Crazy Steve a few minutes ago.

You may be asking, “So just what exactly are they doing?”

Well, I’m afraid you’ll just have to wait for my next post to find out!  (I know, I know.  You’re going to lose all kinds of sleep waiting for  the exciting answer.)

I want to thank all of you who chimed in with great comments and suggestions about possible ways to deal with the Great Stain Trauma Drama.   We are definitely going to put your suggestions to work because, as a couple of you said, the quilt is already ruined so it won’t hurt anything to try a few experimental things on it.

And speaking of comments, I also want to mention a comment on another topic that Karen left; she shared the link to a special website you might like to visit.  It has been recently started by a 15-year old girl who has terminal cancer; since she knows she doesn’t have long to live and has started a Bucket List. The number one thing on the list is, “To Make Everyone Sign Up To Be A Bone Marrow Donor.”

As Karen stated, reading this girl’s thoughts as she faces the end of her life is a good reminder for us to live each day to its fullest.

Life isn’t always perfect and sometimes it can be painful and disheartening and even devastating—but regardless of the heartache that it throws at us, it is still life. It is the only life we’ve been given. And having to deal with tough stuff means at least that we are alive.

If I had a choice between dying at fifteen or growing older and facing really difficult things in life?  I’d choose the tough stuff every single time.

Because life—even with all its sorrows and joys—is the greatest gift.  The fact that we wake up every morning with air in our lungs and strength in our bones is nothing less than a miracle. 

And you know something else?  Each one of us is terminal.  Each second that ticks by walks us one step closer to the place in the ground where our bodies will someday lie.

So write out your Bucket List.  Read it. Memorize it.  Do it. 

Because life is far too precious not to be fully lived.

I need to do this. I have thoughts in my head, but I've never written them down. Thanks, Lisa~

Donor on two different registries. Your entry reminded me to check through both and make sure all my details are still valid. I know they'll probably never call, but I still look forward to the day they do.
And my guess is that Sarah and Steve have noticed that the world is tilting a little bit off its axis, and they're attempting to remedy its spin. Tell them to lean really hard and maybe we'll get an extra-long summer!

Also wanted to registar but I have been told three times that because I have severe asthma (among other health issues) I would never be considered.

Anything is possible with those two! Perhaps, the photographer is doing something odd, thus, causing them to react the way they are.
