   Struan posted on Coffee Klatch  So tired of the ever-battle today. I need to lay down my sword and sleep while watched over by my maternal ancestors until I can revive with their nuturing love that will soon change to gentle admonitions of the dangers of self-pity & duty-centric spurrings to rest a little then, resume my duties & get back in the fight.But, not this day. No, not this day.

   Rollingcow  I am thinking of you today, Struan, and keeping you in prayer. It is always a hard thing to lose people we love, related by blood or not. I have been where you are, although it was physical rather than mental things with my parents. Rest assured you are not standing alone.

   Balogreene  May I echo those above. Use our strength as you need it. My mother mostly has physical problems, but a few mental. I recently told her I liked it much better when she was the mom. She laughed and told me being the kid is a lot more fun. But we got through my Grandmother's senility, we'll make it through tis, and so will you.

   Wrightwinger  How Did You Die?

Did you tackle that trouble that came your way
With a resolute heart and cheerful?
Or hide your face from the light of day
With a craven soul and fearful?
Oh, a trouble’s a ton, or a trouble’s an ounce,
Or a trouble is what you make it.
And it isn’t the fact that you’re hurt that counts,
But only how did you take it?

You are beaten to earth? Well, well, what’s that?
Come up with a smiling face.
It’s nothing against you to fall down flat,
But to lie there – that’s disgrace.
The harder you’re thrown, why the higher you bounce;
Be proud of your blackened eye!
It isn’t the fact that you’re licked that counts;
It’s how did you fight and why?

And though you be done to the death, what then?
If you battled the best you could;
If you played your part in the world of men,
Why the Critic will call it good.
Death comes with a crawl, or comes with a pounce,
And whether he’s slow or spry,
It isn’t that fact that you’re dead that counts,
But only how did you die?

   Nugoddess  You have been on my heart all day, my dear Struan. I have been where you are and yet I have no words. All I can say is strap yourself in and when that becomes too hard, lean on us - we will stand guard.

If you need to vent, my addy is in my profile - two ears, no waiting.

   Yottyhere  It appears we are at a age now where there is going to days of sunshine and days of sorrow.
Its always sad when we have to assume the role of parent to our parent.

Be strong and of good courage and you'll see this through Struan.

   Surfhut  Dear friend, I have also been where you are. I add my strength and prayers in with those already given here. It feels odd to find yourself at this mark on the road of life. You will walk through it, though. This I know for certain. You're pretty damn special and decent, too.

   Struan  Sweet Ladysurf - one of the most speciaistist people of all. A gentlemen's tip o' my Stetson to you. Thank you, Ma"am.

   Struan posted on Coffee Klatch  Okay then - find the birdy.

   Gerty  I absolutely love chickadees! These little guys have no fear. They are the first to 'investigate' whatever I put out for birds; I have never seen them fight with any other bird--they wait their turn at a snack and--this is the best thing--when offered food, they will alight on your hand to eat it!

   Texastealady  Aww Struan ~ this is in my library of cute pics. You beat me to it.

   Ynaught  I hope the cute little birdie hasn't eaten recently!

   Rake King  A bold move the rest of the world may take issue with, but sure would bring some of those Sultans of Oil down off their high horses...and that twerp in Iran.
