A Woman With No Hair

I was visiting my son, his wife, and their four sons in Portland, OR some years back. On Sunday I went to their church with them. We sat in a pew about half-way back. The beautiful choir music and congregational singing had finished, the offering plates passed, and the sermon had begun. All was... Sign in to see full entry.

National Encouragement Day Is Almost Over For 2017

Preacher said that today is National Encouragement Day. I Google searched that and, sure enough, there it was with all kinds of ideas on how to encourage others. He is just bubbling with encouragement for others since he, and his, came through the Irma Hurricane with only a few hours of power outage... Sign in to see full entry.

All Eyes On Florida

WPLG Local 10 / Local10.com Like Page · 18 hrs · THEY NEED SHELTER, TOO!

A Family Together

It is aroma heaven here right now--I've been cooking Ribcage a pork loin roast and making gravy from the drippings. It smells so good and has a wonderful taste. I used a fork to pull the thing into threads and ladled some of the tasty gravy over it. He is a meat eater-- per doctor's orders. Years of... Sign in to see full entry.

Setting Goals Makes A Difference

I was reminded today that no matter one's age, no matter one's circumstances, no matter one's health, abilities, hopes, dreams, problems....one should always have goals--specific goals...life goals. It has been a long time since I have thought about goals. At 80, I have just been going along day... Sign in to see full entry. "No memory is ever alone; it's at the end of a trail of memories, a dozen trails that each have their own associations." ~ Louis L'Amour I am so sick with nausea and dizziness that I think it must not be long before I follow Matthew--same trail, same destination, different way of travel.

What Can I Say? It Has All Been Said

"Matthew, my son, may you rest…rest free of torment, free of pain, free of guilt, free in the peace of God’s eternal glory… where, 'There shall be no more death. Neither shall there be any more sorrow nor crying nor pain, for all the former things are passed away'.” (Rev. 21:4) Now you are a new... Sign in to see full entry.

The Worst Of TAPS

Everyone seems to have a bad day now and then, but I think "My Bad" is hitting all at once.

No Explanation

This has been a hard week so far, for many, and not likely to get any better before it is over. Those who are still in shock, hoping it is just all an unending bad dream, and in pain grieving for Matthew, include a beautiful fiancée, two grandmas, three brothers, two sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins,...

Enterprising Women

This is my very most favorite UPAVIM hand-crafted gift that I received from my Sis in Baltimore for my birthday in July. I have it sitting on my little table beside my recliner where I watch TV or watch nature outside my window. Quite often one will see a cup of hot coffee or tea sitting on it. The...
