Share Your World – 2016 Week 20


With your answers, please remember we are in the SYW world and which may not always match our reality.

When do you feel most connected with others?

I’m a Loner and an Solitary so it is very rare for me to be or feel connected to others. Rather I’m connected to Nature. I prefer being outdoors in good sunny weather taking photographs. However one instance that stands out for me in terms of connectedness was last January when I attend the New York Paid Family Leave Rally where New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Vice President Joe Biden spoke. The bill just recently became Law in the state of New York and will take effect January 2018. At least I feel like I helped to accomplish something.

What daily habit would you like to introduce to your life?

More Sleep and exercise!!

What one mini-little-adventure would you like to have in the coming week?

That some kind, gentle and generous soul would take me out to the beauty and nail salon. I need to have my hair, fingernails and toenails done!!  Having a Fully Paid Free for Me Day of Beauty would be a wonderful thing!!

List things or events that changed your Life: It could be as simple as a book or meeting a certain person?

  • Committing my Life to Jesus Christ.
  • Joining the military and serving in the United States Army.
  • The deaths of my Beloved parents Edward & Mable Palmer.
  • Having and surviving a minor stroke at age 49.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I am grateful that my court case went well and had a successful and victorious outcome. I’m also grateful for meeting and dancing with the Lost Samurai! That was fun!!

As for this upcoming week looking forward to just getting through the work week with the least amount of pain and making it to the weekend.

  1. Great answers Deb!! I hope you’ve had no further issues after you had your stroke. It seems more and more younger people are being affected by strokes and heart attacks. I’d give my left arm for a Fully Paid Free for Me Day of Beauty.

    1. Oh I had health issues from the stroke. Mostly vision issues. Specifically my left eye where the doctor wound up doing retina surgery Jan. 2010. My vision in that eye is still blurry & fuzzy but I’ve adapted. I don’t complain. However sometime this year I must return to the eye doctor to see what can be done for that eye. I must have my vision to read, continue my photography and take care of my brother Stephen. My stroke was caused by high blood pressure which is now under control. In the meantime Life goes on.

      1. Yup! Hypertension. Hereditary from my Father’s side. I’m sure everything will work out. I have faith and take much better care of myself since having a stroke in Jan. 2008. I have completely changed my Lifestyle and am always looking for ways to improve my overall health.

  2. Wow, a stroke so young. Glad you are doing well, and praying for total healing of your eye. Why is it the sleep and exercise are always the first to go? Thank you for your military service. May you have a good, pain-free week. Rejoicing with you over the successful court case.

    1. Strokes, high blood pressure and cancer are very common in my family. Hopefully I will live longer than my parents. Given what I do for a living which includes standing on my feet on hard surfaces for up to 12 hours a day the pain will always be there until I retire. There is no getting around that. Pain is part of the job and most of the guards are in constant physical pain. That’s the price one pays for having a job.
