But what a beautiful flower! And surely the essence of the plant will

Live on forever.

My grandfather had a stroke and passed out, less than a year before he died.

He was so upset they brought him back to life. He was angry. "Why'dja have to go and wake me up?"

He talked about how he was in a place with the most beautiful gardens he had ever seen.

He was a farmer all his life, dropped out of school in the fourth grade to work the plow, and knew all about gardens and growing things.

He said it was just so beautiful, and he felt so happy there, and he just couldn't describe it, but he had tears running down his face as he tried, this grizzled old Montana farmer who never cried over anything.

I would like to think the beautiful agave plant goes to the beautiful gardens to bloom forever.

What do you think, Omaha Steve?

People don't get it. I'm glad your wife has you to care for her!

I hope she gives care to you, too.

It took me twelve years of going to the doctors, before anyone even suggested it might be MS.

Before that, my weird numbness, bladder spasms/pain, intense fatigue, spells of depression, were all written off as hysteria.

As I tell every doc I see now, "they were right....it was all in my head....oh and in my spinal cord, too."

Life is way way way easier now that the doctors actually believe me and want to help me instead of doing the "get out of my exam room" and rolled eyes routine.

Yeah I'm bitter, LOL, who wouldn't be?
