Sorry for the delay, there are a lot of glitches happening which require straightening out. These are causes of much laughing as all involved struggle to understand what is happening. For instance, I take Nature Throid as a prescription for my thyroid. Medicare has agreed that all on Medicare will be covered by this product so there is a shortage as we all scramble to find this drug. It seems that the producer of this drug is building a new facility in order to handle the new volume of orders but it is not operational yet. My pharmacist and I have been dealing with this for a few months, begging and borrowing from other pharmacies that have some on hand that no one is asking for. The crescendo came this week as there simply was no more. I was told by my doctor’s office that CVS and Walgreens had it but after calling around, no one has any?????I needed to choose another thyroid medication, one my body would accept. There is NPThyroid from China which is available from my regular pharmacy and I finally received an automated call that my prescription was ready and as I was down to only one more day’s dosage, I scooted over to them. Once there, I was told that Medicare would pay only for the 15mg strength and I needed the 75mg strength. Of course, another series of phone calls between doctor’s office, pharmacy and me. Medicare has a glitch, God help us. All of us are laughing at the foolishness that is going on as they will pay for me to take 5 of the 15 mg a day but won’t pay for the 75mg. ??????? Hopefully this will all settle down and the Naturethroid will be available in a month or two. And…..this is only one is a series of glitches that have been happening. Notice that I am not alone in this; I can’t do this without help from others. I am sure you are experiencing this is your own way with your own scenario. You are not alone so do not give up hope. We need to laugh at the silliness of the happenings in the world right now.
My birds, the golden finches are back. I even had a beautiful red cardinal at my feeder which I have never seen before as they are usually ground feeders. My little Juncos, the ground feeders, are back because the others are back and throwing food on the ground for them beneath the feeders. It is a pleasure to see them again. I took them for granted and this was another opportunity to release all attachment. Isn’t this what we are asked to do?
Richard Rohr gives us the true story of how the Celebration of Christmas first began. I hadn’t heard this before and since Richard Rohr is one of our greatest theologians and author, I wanted to share his wisdom with you. I subscribe to his daily meditations which always add to my knowledge of how the whole world shares in the creation.
Here is a message from Gabriel and words that will ease all the frustrations you are experiencing.
Breaking news: at least to me. Hope for the future of our planet. One big, big player is finally listening to the people who wish to stop the raping of our Mother Earth when other options are available.

Love wins out in the end and it was a combination of love for another and love for the world.
