Wednesday May 24th ~

 It doesn't matter what's been written in your story so far, 
it's how you fill up the rest of the pages that counts...

Wednesday again.  Halfway through the week and little by 
little we are starting to see the results of Arvid's hard work.
  I just know that he will soon need to start a new "project" just 
to stay busy.  For a man his age, Arvid does not know what the
 word slow down means, and I don't say this in a bad way.  It's 
just that sometimes it's nice to want to relax and take it easy.

May is about over.  Good riddance.  Once June begins our time to go to 
Norway gets closer and closer.  I look forward to it.  I would love to give
 Victoria and Michael a big hug and to make them feel better.  If I can.  
We look forward to seeing and enjoying good times with everyone.

I do stress about leaving Sniff for so long, but I know he
 is well cared for.  Peace of mind is always good.  He's my baby.

He cheers me up and makes me laugh when I am down.  
Together with Arvid I am fortunate.  I don't know what I would
 do if something happened to Sniff.  Brutus' death shattered me.  
Shadow's devastated us.  I want our Sniff with us FOREVER!!!

It's back to a few doctors appointments again.  I just don't 
understand it, but ever since getting to Branson I have not been 
feeling good.  I need to go back home soon.  I want to have all my doctors
 in one place, at least until I know what is really going on with me.

As the new day begins we "forget" that what we 
take for granted, someone else is praying for.  Somewhere out
 there, there is a sadness and an anger that haunts many
 until hopefully one day it becomes bearable.

Never apologize for doing what you have to do in 
order to maintain your happiness and peace.  In 
your life you need to come second to none...
