Joe and organ donation.

Recently I saw a video on Facebook. It was of a mom who was hearing her son’s heart beat inside the chest of the recipient. I loved it. It reminded me of Joe and our decision to honor his request to be an organ donor. This was my blog five years ago today: A few [...]

Busy day.

It is after 3:00 and I am finally writing today’s blog. I was up and out of the house early today. I had a lymphatic drain massage and had my six month joint x-rays. I sound like I am 90. SO, I did come home and spent two hours floating in the bucket in the [...]

What to do?

For the first time in my life I have time. I feel at a crossroad. I am 57 years old. I work for myself. I make my own hours. I am thinking about what I want to do with my time. I am not raising children and my husband leaves the house every day for [...]

National Parents’ day.

National Parents’ day was yesterday. National Parents’ Day was established in 1994 when President Bill Clinton signed a Congressional Resolution into Law recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children. I was lucky. I had great parents. I miss them. If you have parents on this planet, reach out to them. [...]

A sign from Joe.

I have been feeling Joe’s presence a lot lately. Joe was always super protective of me. I liked that about him. I’m thinking I have been feeling him around me because many changes are happening in my life. Each morning John gets up and leaves the house for work. That is a new thing for [...]

Happy Saturday.

It feels like an autumn morning. No sun. Rain in the forecast. It is a good day to lay low. Maybe read a book or even go to a movie. Maybe I will get ambitious and start painting the dining room, although, I doubt that. This is what I know for sure, I can do [...]

Our apartment will be available October 1st. Sadie is considering getting a room mate and moving to the upstairs [...]

A healing mass.

Last night, John and I attended mass with prayers and blessings for healing at Nativity church. Fr. Keil of Erie, PA said the mass. The church was about two thirds full of people seeking a physical, mental or spiritual healing. I have a friend who attended one of Fr. Keil’s healing masses back in May. [...]

Wa La!

Now that John is leaving the house in predawn hours, I am keeping myself busy. Since my job is project specific, I may work many hours in one week, and none the next. This week I don’t have to work. It is a good week to get creative. I found this table and chairs on [...]

Memory garden.

It’s been a while since we changed our veggie garden into a memory garden. This is what it looked like two years ago. This was the garden yesterday. I love it! I am glad it is growing so well.
