When it hurts

On a recent blog entry, someone finished their comment with, "See you next month!" I had to think about that for a minute. Did someone think I wrote monthly blogs? Then it hit me. It's October. Next month is November. The anniversary of Michaela's kidnapping. Can I tell you how much I don't want to... Continue Reading →

Along the spiritual road

I've spent a few days now mulling things over, listening for guidance, and I think I have finally come to the conclusion that I am finished trying to be that square peg in a round hole. Had a little bit of contact with people who have confirmed that I am never going to fit in... Continue Reading →

God still speaks?

I have been talking to God lately. Sometimes, you know, life just brings you to your knees, and this has been such a time for me. All the regular problems and heartaches are there, and then some other things added just for fun. Today is the 16th birthday of my little miniature pinscher, Spike. We... Continue Reading →

I’ll be back

I know I have been absent for awhile. I could give you a lot of excuses, but I'm just going to say that sometimes the good Lord just tells you to shut your mouth. Not advice I often take, as those who follow my facebook are aware. But I have written and discarded so many... Continue Reading →

The bottom line

  Ah, so many thoughts, so many feelings! Today I posted something on Michaela's Facebook page about the awful things that are happening to children at the US southern border. I don't often post about politics on Michaela's page. I have a lot of really passionate political feelings, but I have tried not to alienate people... Continue Reading →

Save the moms, save the children

Not too long ago, I was there to see the two people pictured above playing together, gathering to themselves all the love and joy that could be mustered, even in times and places that might make it challenging. They are my daughter and my grandson. I've always been cognizant, when the subject of abortion comes... Continue Reading →

Elections and the Revolution

I know, never discuss religion or politics. Unfortunately, those are two of my favorite subjects. I don't love or hate people based on either their political or religious views. I may or may not engage, and that may or may not be in the form of spirited debates, but there are so many people I... Continue Reading →

Eve

Since you asked (really, you did!), I am still alive. And things are looking up a little bit. Winter was long and hard. It was cold and wet, it was filled with sickness and injuries in my household. I had a major identity crisis, which has alllllmost been resolved. You probably will not believe this,... Continue Reading →

Do not be afraid

I had my regular check-up with my oncologist yesterday. I have these every three months, and they basically consist of blood tests, a chat and a physical exam, checking lymph nodes, etc. It is now a year and a half since I finished treatment, and at every checkup I get a reassuring, "everything looks good,"...
