This is Fruitycake The Raccoon. I’m all about love. I’m all about positivity. I’m all about the good things in life. I don’t want the bad to overshadow the good. I can’t do that.
Persons also have a hard time with seeing any good when something bad happens. They don’t want to answer the bad news calls or the bad news texts. And I don’t blame them at all.
Because when you try so hard to be positive, bad news can make you forget there is anything good. If you let it. I don’t let it.
Yesterday, Boy Person found out his mom Person was sick. And she was taken to a hospital place. It’s hard for him because he loves her. And I bet it’s even harder for her because she is hurting.
I have never met her, but Brickle says she gives great head scratches. Obviously, I believe him. And I believe him when he says bad news can be turned around. Bad news doesn’t always stay bad. But sometimes the hardest part is waiting.
When bad news calls, it can be easy to let your mind and heart overwhelm you with dread. I had lots of practice living on the streets dealing with seeing bad things. But one thing I never forgot was that I could keep going. I had to keep going for me. And now Boy Person keeps going for me. He says that the bad news in life doesn’t mean you forget the ones who count on you. Focusing on being the best for someone else during your trials can help.
We are in the midst of some big decisions in our life. At least that is what I’m told.
But I’m also seeing what persons think is a big deal one day means nothing the next.
So cherish the one who make your life good. And if bad news calls, be the best and try your best. Someone needs you.
We will keep you up to date on Boy Person’s mom Person as we know.

Praying for all of you. When my sister got sick I had to make a big decision. My mom lived with her, but she couldn’t take care of Mom any more, at least until she was well again. I had to make the huge decision to quit my job (supplementing my retirement income) so I could move Mom into my home and take care of her. It was a difficult decision, but two of my siblings came to my rescue by helping out financially. One took my mom to get her hair done every four weeks, and handed her cash every time. Another paid for a housekeeper to come every week to help out (I’m not the best housekeeper; it’s not my gift). I took care of Mom, taking her to all her doctor appointments, making sure her special nutritional needs were met by cooking the right foods for her nearly every meal. I took her to church on Sundays, and then met my oldest sister and my youngest brother at one of Mom’s favorite restaurants after church. Sometimes the Asian buffet, sometimes the pizza buffet place, sometimes at a diner that she really enjoyed. And sometimes we went to a lovely little cafe that is attached to a beautiful garden that is a well known tourist destination, and has an event center next door. That was her favorite place. The point is, persons often have to make difficult decisions about what the next chapter in their lives will be. Whether that means your family will not be traveling full time or that the persons will need to take time off for a while to help Grandma demonstrate for you the best ear scratches, or whatever decisions come their way, we often have to look at the plans we’ve made and adjust our focus. “Change of plans” is a phrase persons sometimes end up saying to those around them. By the way, I never went back to work; Mom never moved back to my sister’s house. She stayed with me until she took her last breath. By then, I had changed some of my plans for my future, so I didn’t need to fill my savings account as fast.
Prayers for your family!
