Peace in your heart.

Saw this today. Love it. If there is to be peace in the world, There must be peace in the nations. If there is to be peace in the nations, There must be peace in the cities. If there is to be peace in the cities, There must be peace between neighbors. If there is [...]

A good day!

It is a very sunny fall day today. My pain level is lower than usual. The world is full of possibilities. Life is good!! Happy Thursday!  

Take pictures.

I become quite sentimental this time of year. Johnny and I will be married 28 years on Saturday. When John and I started a relationship with each other, we lived in two different states. For nearly the next two years we drove back and forth between many different cities.  We never lived in the same [...]


It is Monday morning. I am moving slow and my muscles are achy. I don’t really want to leave the house. I don’t really want to do anything. My brain is telling me that is exactly what I should not do. I should get out. Move these tired arms and legs. Push through the pain. [...]

St. Teresa of Avila.

Today is the feast day of Saint Teresa of Avila. I first heard of this St. Teresa years ago. I often had migraine headaches. I worked with a woman who told me that St. Teresa of Avila was the patron saint of people who get headaches. Since then, I think of St. Teresa when I [...]

Everyone has something.

It is a dark and dreary morning. I can hear the rain and the garbage truck outside my window. John left the house hours ago. Before I even moved this morning I could feel the pain in my shoulders, arms and hands. I took a deep breath, opened and closed my hands to begin the [...]

Joe’s 26th birthday – A music video.

Today, my Joe turns 26 in Heaven. That is hard to believe. That is how old John was when we got married. I have only happy memories of his birthdays. A birthday tradition in our house was to play  ”They say it’s your Birthday” by The Beatles. We would dance like crazy people, around the [...]
