A Week in the Life of Dollycas
Nationally it was one heck of a week starting with the death of Naomi Judd, followed by the death of Kailia Posey, and the deaths of 3 young woman athletes the week before. They all follow the many deaths each year due to mental health issues and ending with suicide. We need to get a handle on mental health in this country. Losing my own son in 2015 brought this plight into my own home and each day more lives are lost. After my son died someone said, “suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem” and that is so true. Over the years I have learned suicide also doesn’t care how famous you are, how much money you have, where you live, or how much your family loves you. It can work its way into anyone’s life.
Please – If you are in crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741-741. And keep this information handy because you may not need it now but there may come a time you do.
The nation was also stunned by the document leaked from the Supreme Court and that draft weighs heavy on my heart and mind. But I am not going to get on my soapbox today but I may in the future when I can wrap my head around it fully enough to put coherent sentences together.
Now for the good news! After days and days of rain, sunshine and warmer weather have arrived here in Wisconsin and that makes me so happy. The forecast shows we are going to be in the 70s and 80s this week. I can’t wait to throw the windows open and let the fresh air in. I have asked Mr. Dollycas to get chairs out on the porch so I can sit out there to read if I wish. Daisy is excited too because that means trips to the dog park are in her future.
Other than that I read some good books and am still bingeing on Chicago Fire and working on my blog and book tours.
How was your week?
