Thursday January 26th~

Some days are like this. And the only way to 
get through them is to remember that they
 are only one day, and that every day ends...

 Sniff makes me happy and no matter how I feel just holding 
him close to me makes everything better.  He does not talk. 
 he may listen, but one thing for sure he's always by my side. 
 Right now I'm having one of those days. I will get better.

Like everyone, I have my ups and downs.  I am doing really well, 
but every so often it annoys me that I can't do the things I did before. 
 I cannot lift anything heavy with my left arm, and if I forget and do it, 
I pay dearly for it at nights.  My problem is that I am too stubborn 
and as Arvid told my parents, "she refuses to ask for help."

I honestly do not believe that being stubborn is always a good thing. 
 Makes life difficult for everyone.  I do not like to ask for help or for
 anything, and sometimes I know that it is necessary to do so.  I have
 lots to learn about asking for anything.  I rather give than receive.

Once again Sniff and I have been awake for a while enjoying 
the peace and quiet of the morning.  I would have liked to sleep in a
 bit longer but... sometimes you don't always get what you want.

Once again there is some boat activity going on. 
 Arvid is Johnny on the spot.  Nothing escapes his eagle 
eye as he like to tell me.  There are still many boats on 
dry land, especially on our way to the downtown area.

My goal is not to be better than anyone else,
 but to be better than I used to be...
