six years

On Sunday September 27, As the choir sang ' I bowed on my knees and cried Holy, at the same time six years prior my husband Richard called to me: "Hurry honey I see the Light I have to go. Come Kiss me bye. I love you." Sunday would have been his 88th birthday. He had Alzheimer's, Parkinson's. Cancer and Congestive Heart Failure. He had said he would transition on his birthday. He lingered for two more days until he could be made sure I would be taken care of. He had seen i... nto heaven for... Sign in to see full entry.

Address Change

Hiphip hooray. We finally have the house. The final offer was accepted today. Out of limbo land and can finally start getting things together; like moving all my stuff from Hampton, painting the inside, and finally getting a decent bed and mattress. The yard sale was a success except for the Beanie Babies. We sold maybe 100 out of the thousand. One man drove up Thursday night and made an offer on all we had set out for Friday morning and drove away with it all. Friday it rained and people still... Sign in to see full entry.

Jax is now 25 pounds and 34 inches tall, He is all legs. Can't get pictures to turn. Rick is adjusting and liking the changes. He has... Sign in to see full entry.

Tears Flow Again

had to make the appointment to have Miss Rosie put asleep tomorrow. The tumor on her breast is getting bigger and bleeding, she is skin and bones no matter how much she eats and she breaths funny when she sleeps. She also has a spinal tumor and it is getting harder for her to climb up on chairs and steps. I also think she is partially blind. Prayers for me, please. Sign in to see full entry.

Back again

My credit info was stolen so I had to get a new card and number. It has been a busy month. Cleaning and boxing and hauling to the Charity store clothes and kitchen items plus babysitting the Jax everyday while the other grandparents were visiting family and friends in Africa and France. The easiest part was being able to baby sit Jax at our new home in Elizabethton. It has been hard with part of my stuff in Hampton and part of my stuff here. Friday I finally got my recliner, computer desk and... Sign in to see full entry.

What's in Your Cabinet?

Well, after cleaning out the lower cabinet beside the sink, we found we have no wall in the back. We have only slats. Rick's sister came over and we took everything out. Everything was wrapped in plastice bags and enclosed with a clothes pin. Most, well, everything is nasty and going to the recycle center. Slowly we are getting everything packed and taken out or packed and ready for yard sale in cooler weather. Rick and I went to his home church this past Sunday for a special tribute to his Mom...

A Poem For A Contest

This was entered in a contest to be displayed for colon cancer prevention: You Choose You were born with will of choice BUTT have learned by now some were good and others not. Do not be an ostrich and stick your head in the sand BUTT if you do as long as your rear is raised in the air why not have a doctor take a peek. I promise it doesn't hurt a bit. The prep, I will be truthful, is not a piece of cake BUTT afterwards you can eat all the cake you want. You have a choice bury your head and raise... Sign in to see full entry.

You Are the Star

You Are the Star As we gather the last time to watch your last performance. We are truly awed to be in the presence of a true star. You were a star of Love that shone brightly on all that you met. You were a star of wisdom. You were the star Mom who raised such wonderful loving children. You were the star of giving and gave so much of yourself to so many. As a true star, you called all the shots. You were the diva of all that surrounded you. As your days grew short, you made it clear that all... Sign in to see full entry.

Rick's Mom passed last night at 11:21 pm. Graveside services only on Friday. Everything in place so it went smooth last night.

Life Lessons Learned

Waiting for the birth of a soul. Life lessons learned for three children. Love and support one another no matter what. Communication lines opened and patience and understanding a mother taught her three children practiced. Laughter filled this room and smiles as they talked about past Christmas's and the special traditions practiced. One was that there was always one present Santa couldn't get down the Chimney so he left it on the side porch. I put on Pandora Larwence Welk station and Happy Feet... Sign in to see full entry.

Waking to the Drama of Grief

It is hard for one to use the bathroom in the bed when for all our lives we are taught that we are not supposed to. Well, when it has been 91 years, it is even harder. I noticed last night that her bladder was filling but it had only been an hour since we had changed her and she had been very wet. So I told everyone that if after 6 hours she hadn't voided or was distended we would call for a catheter. Changed her again and was still slightly distended but wet on brief and pad so decided to want... Sign in to see full entry.
