Archangel Saint Michael and Saint Gabriel

Yesterday was the feast day for Archangels Saint Michael and Saint Gabriel. They are two of my favorite saints. In honor of their feast day, I am posting a prayer. Heavenly King, You have given us archangels to assist us during our pilgrimage on earth. Saint Michael is our protector; I ask him to come [...]

Shot day.

Today is shot day. Every other Friday I get a shot of Humira. I fought for two years to find another way. I didn’t want to take Humira. Sure, on the commercials you see all the smiling faces of those enjoying the benefits of the drug. However, it was less convincing when you heard the [...]

In your heart.

“Why do we close our eyes when we pray, cry, kiss or dream? Because the most beautiful things in life are not seen, but are felt by the heart.” Denzel Washington Feel something wonderful in your heart today. All is well.  

National Research Administrator day.

Today is National Research Administrator day. It is a day to recognize those who work in research. Without people working in research, where would we be? I have a personal interest in research since my girl, Sadie, works in research for UPMC, University of Pittsburgh. I am proud of her and her dedication to her [...]

And, he is off.

Saturday morning, John and I woke up early. I drove him to the airport. We said good-bye and he was on his way. In his bag, his tent, food and whatever else he will need. Sunday morning John began his hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. He sent me this photo from the [...]

Thank you, hands!

I put the Hamilton soundtrack on yesterday and I cleaned my kitchen. I cleaned every nook and cranny. To be honest, it has been a very long time since I cleaned anything with such enthusiasm. It felt great! This morning I am enjoying my shiny clean kitchen. I’m enjoying and am thankful for the use [...]

In The End.

“In the end, only three things matter: how much you have loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.” Budda I love that. I’m going to think about that today. Happy Wednesday.  

Hope and possibilities.

What a good weekend. Sadie and I went to the Whispering Pine Farm. We walked around, booth to booth seeing what everyone was selling. There was good music and I had good company. I felt great. We left there and went to Main Street Saxonburg. I had never been there before. We enjoyed lunch at [...]

My blessings.

Tomorrow I will get my third Humira shot. The shot hurts like hell, to be honest, but it has been life changing for me. I am not to a place where I can give the shot to myself. My friend, Jenny, gave me the first one, John did the last. This is me with my [...]
