Lazy Summer

Margo Robbie British Vogue“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”

Those are the times it is okay to stand above her. But when she is kneeling because the weight of the world is just too heavy to bear … that is when You should be kneeling beside her.” — Unknown

  • What makes life worth living?
  • What would make life definitely not worth living?
  • What might at first seem too much to put up with, but then might seem manageable after getting familiar with the situation and learning to deal with it?
  • If you knew life was coming to an end, what would be comforting and make dying feel safe?
    What, in that situation, would you want to avoid?
  • How much control is important for you to have when facing a terminal illness?

We may see that dying is the better of two choices, and be ready to give the loved one permission to die. The dying person may be distressed at causing grief for those who love them, and, receiving permission to die can relieve their distress. There is a time for this to happen. Before that, it feels wrong to accept a loss, but after that it can be an act of great kindness to say, “You may go when you feel it is time. I will be OK.”

At the time a person is near death, sometimes touch is the best communication. Gentle stroking of a hand or a cheek, and quietly reassuring the person that you love them and that you will be all right is perhaps the most compassionate way to ease your loved one on his journey. In a situation where you are not present at the time of death, forgive yourself and know that you did the best you could to make the final hours or weeks of life peaceful and meaningful.

According to Hospice and an EMT Family Member, Mom is holding on hard. dievca’s one brother is there, Grandchildren are there, a lovely Caregiver, the Great-Grandchild have gone over, dievca and her cousins have spoken and sang to Mom, dievca hopes her other brother has spoken to Mom, but she’s not sure….what are we missing?

dievca’s Dad checked in with everyone and then let go~ We cannot figure out what Mom is holding on for~ she moves her lips when something pleases her and the mention of a bath causes those lips to move. Mom floats with her Osteoperosis. Maybe the simple pleasure of a bath~

Just wish we could figure out what would help.

The best part ~

The best part of being a backend is there is no backend at the back end of the backend. ~ Anup

In the computer world, the “backend” refers to any part of a website or software program that users do not see. It contrasts with the frontend, which refers to a program’s or website’s user interface. In programming terminology, the backend is the “data access layer,” while the frontend is the “presentation layer.”


“One house, One voice, One heart”

Quote:

“One house

One voice

One heart”

A quote that could apply to a slave and their Master/Madame

It is actually the title to a book:

One house, one voice, one heart : native American education at the Santa Fe Indian School.

“The Santa Fe Indian School (SFIS) is a secondary school (middle and high school) in Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States. It was founded in 1890 as a boarding school for Native American children from the state’s Indian pueblos. But in the course of its history, the school has also served as a major cultural catalyst for the Native American community throughout the United States. Beginning as a boarding school for students, the school expanded its offerings in the 1920s and 1930s.”–Wikipedia. July 31, 2013.

“After all these years, I am still involved in the process of self-discovery.
It’s better to explore life and make mistakes than to play it safe.
Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.”

May the mistakes and challenges of 2020 allow us to grow in 2021.
dievca is looking forward to exploring and growing with you.

“Flowers grow out of dark moments.”

~Corita Kent

Spring flowers don’t realize that COVID-19 is a problem. They are in full bloom around the City.
April Showers have brought those Flowers and Myla Lingerie is willing to help celebrate!


And sometimes a submissive gets lucky…

dievca grew up with a great family. she’s well-educated and has a great job.
she’s had and has a solid social life, no abusive partners, no financial issues.
It might seem like she is lucky, but she has worked hard for her World.

dievca doesn’t need to have a Dominant in her Life, but having one whom she trusts fully and can submit to has given her a chance to place a missing link.

Master would not state that He is stronger than His dievca.
He would state that their trust for each other is equal and that makes their power exchange fluid. They both want similar things out of their relationship.

Its the trust between a Dominant and submissive that needs to be strong.

Sending Kisses to You for Valentine’s Day

There’s this place in me where your fingerprints still rest,
your kisses still linger,
and your whispers softly echo.
It’s the place where a part of you will forever be a part of me.

The time is always right to do what is right.

If someone consistently tries to do the right thing. You cannot fault them. They are trying to be good people. Good humans.

It doesn’t matter which religion, nationality, political party, skin color.

Just try to be aware, listen, be kind, think, act and do right.

It will work out.
