I Can and I Will

For several years now my need to write and share hasn’t been foremost in my mind like it was when I began blogging. I developed Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, a life altering illness, and for a time writing was not one of my priorities. It seemed more important to use whatever small parcel of energy allowed […]


A Little Birdie Told Me …

  A Shared Entrée from my Personal Journal,                         July 11, 2013      I went out this afternoon to sit in the front yard, forgetting for a silly minute that it was 108 in the shade! I decided to water a couple of dry spots on the lawn while out there with all of my oxygen […]

Peace In Our Hearts

       Water retention is an ongoing problem with me and I often take my rings and watch off, put my watch band through the rings, then shut the clasp and put them in my travel jewelry box for safe keeping.    So I didn’t think anything of it when I was shopping and  subconsciously ran my […]


This ‘n That, Chit ‘n Chat

Being just a hop, skip and a jump away from May is just unreal.   Time doesn’t seem to keep a steady pace; it either speeds or crawls … or both.   It crawls when you are waiting for something, speeds when you have a deadline.    Most of my winter was spent waiting; waiting for appointments, waiting […]


Support Groups

My writing these days has been to the diary of a support group I’ve found that has been set up for people with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension.   It seems like that (that being the disease) has been on my mind a lot the last four months (I wonder why) and I haven’t felt it was appropriate […]


The Rest of The Story

I doubt it has even crossed your mind to wonder what was wrong with the van … but you still get to hear “the rest of the story”. The van had a little doohickey that needed adjusted.    The man called us and said we could either get a new part that would be around $200 […]


I’m blessed indeed; the world is mine …

I’ve been hearing some of the words of the following poem in my mind today.   It’s been one of my favorite poems since I was just a little girl.    The other thing that has been in my mind is a picture of  Albrecht Durer’s Praying Hands.     Mother gave me a small copy of this the […]


I’ve Been Grilled!

I was honored to be highlighted today on Grandma’s Brief’s, an awesome blog by Lisa, a grandmother with a successful blog full of information to do with being grandparents.    Actually, it is full of information for everyone and has links to just about anything you can imagine to do with a family.       I love blogs […]

“Less Than Fun”

My poor man says this whole experience of getting a total knee replacement is “Less than fun” and he’s not looking forward to having the other leg done in two weeks.     The link to total knee replacement is a virtual surgery and gives you the role of being the surgeon.   It’s kind of interesting. It […]


Remembering you, Sherry

Dear Sherry, I sat in the car looking at this beautiful view of the ocean last week while baby Kai napped and the rest of the group went for a tour of a light house.   It gave me a quiet moment to think of you, my dear friend for the past 30 years.   I wanted […]
