I haven’t written a blog in two weeks. Took a little vacation from documenting examination. It is not that I haven’t been busy with myself, I have. The biggest thing happening right now with me is that my Humira, which I have been taking since last August, is no longer working. What that means is [...]

Happy Anniversary, Mama and daddy!

It is the 4th of July. In my entire life I have not been able to think of July 4th without thinking about my parents. Today, my parents are celebrating their 68th wedding anniversary, together in heaven.  Every July 4th we would celebrate our parents and our country with a big party at my family [...]

The bucket.

We have seen sunshine the last two days in a row! Both days I was able to get into my pool. Water is my favorite. Since I was a child I was happiest when I was swimming. Some of my best memories are of me at the beach or in a pool. This summer has [...]

Summer Solstice.

Today is the first day of summer. We are completing the summer solstice. Summer Solstice is not just the longest day of the year, it is also a time to celebrate the light of consciousness within ourselves, and the people around us. As the earth allows us more sunlight in our days, it is time [...]

Father’s day.

It is Father’s Day. When I think of my dad, I smile. That is a blessing. This is one of the earliest photos I have of my dad with me. My dad was a kind and caring man who taught me many things while he was here. My parents always worked for themselves with an [...]

Melancholy day.

I slept 10 hours last night. I woke at 10:30. I can count on one hand the number of times I have slept until 10:30, in my life. I feel guilty sleeping so late. Feel like I should have been doing something. If I am honest with myself, this is a common theme for me. [...]

Joe Kimutis Scholarship

I have taken a break from writing for a short time. I’m having a few issues and writing hasn’t been on my mind. Last week was the eighth grade graduation at Our Lady of Grace school. At the eighth grade graduation we were to give a $1,000 scholarship to a student who will be attending  [...]

Shall pass.

I have a migraine for the 5th day in a row. It is affecting my eyesight. It is annoying and a bit scary. I am going to see my chiropractor today. Hopefully she can offer me some relief. Ugh. I am not sure what this all means. I am going to take it a bit [...]

A wonderful night. Joe Kimutis Kindness Scholarship

Last night John and I walked into the auditorium at Seton-La Salle High School. I no longer get a pit in my stomach when I walk through those doors. That wound has thankfully healed. I love this school. I love the administration working for this school. The first person I saw was Judy Caves, the junior [...]

My tribe.

We had some friends, family and neighbors here last night. One thing I observed is that my life is very full of wonderful, beautiful and caring people. My tribe is rich with love and history. We had lots of great food, drinks and in the late night hours we even sang together. We kept the [...]
