My Love, This is a letter to Rory, I hope you get this in heaven.
You left me in the middle of the night on May 12th. I came home from work that night with nothing in my heart but love for you. So when we talked on the phone earlier in the day and you told me I was a good girl for getting the landlord to come out and look at our plumbing problems in our mobile home park, I knew you were very happy. In that same phone call you told me not to wake you when I got home from…Continue

It was a joke among us how Tim would be so precise all the time - if Tim was to meet you somewhere it would be at 11:32 AM, not 11:30 or 11:30-ish or Before Noon, no it was 11:32, set your watch. I received a text a few weeks ago from one of our friends: "I'm making a recipe that I think Tim must have created. Directions are to bake at 374 degrees for 38 minutes. What?!?!"
Last summer Tim surprised me with tickets to a concert. He really disliked public events - the event itself…Continue

Some of us get down when people say " I know how you feel"... We need a little more compassion (1 Peter 3:8) Instead say, I am happy to see you or its good to see you today....Also its best not to say are you doing okay..." Nope I am not okay!"... Oh well, we are all imperfect and we mean well.

May 23rd, 2014 - Baker Lake, Mount Baker.
Tim was bound and determined to bake me a birthday cake at our campsite despite the leaky bug tent and pouring rain that didn't stop the entire trip. He'd sneaked a box mix of carrot cake and ready-to-smear frosting into the provisions we picked up on our way. With his Coleman camp stove and Coleman camp stove collapsible oven he pulled off the impossible.
Tim always celebrated my birthday with gusto. Sometimes he'd surprise me with…Continue

"Daddy" was sorta a joke between us... Tim being 'Daddy' and me being 'Other Daddy'. We appreciated them equally but like most pet owners we liked to assign human traits to them, sorta a joke...
But not really. It's not a joke when you're the…Continue

That's my Tim in the photo. This was taken near our house in Seattle during one of our rare snow days. And that's Bailey's with very little coffee in his travel cup.
Tim was rare, illusive, a real life snow man - he never complained about snow, he loved it, and would stay up late into the night to watch it fall, hoping it'd be measured in feet, sometimes (dangerously) waking me to tell me it's "snowing to beat shit!", excited to go out and just be in it. Even cancer couldn't keep…Continue

If you ask someone to share a memory of their mom, chances are it involves food. Nothing triggers more memories of mom than her cooking. For many of us, it’s a favorite recipe or it could be the time we spent in the warm kitchen where we felt safe and sheltered.…Continue

Went to a conference today and heard an interesting fact.... that a lot of soilders die by suicide
This is depressing ...I weep with those who weep today KJV--ROM 12:5
Have you ever felt the need to talk and been disappointed? I know I have. One particular friend can cut a phone call short without any notice, and yet she is a wonderful listener and one of my closest confidantes. I have learned that when I need her to listen, I must ask.…Continue
The recently published book, “The Bounce!” is a semi-autobiographical novel. Much of the story depicted in the novel is mine. I decided to write a semi-autobiographical novel since this format gave me a bit of artistic liberty to stretch my imagination while basing the outline on facts as I remembered them. A few accounts, and names have been fictionalized and I rely on the dialog style that a fiction can accommodate more than a biography.
I had been reflecting on an incident,…

Q. My aunt, who had no children, died and left everything (including a condo in Miami) to my cousins and myself. My cousins have almost come to blows over whether to sell the place or use it for vacations and share expenses. How can people resolve such issues?
Unless there is a later memorial service, a death in the family usually requires quick decisions about everything from the location of the funeral to the…Continue

My Brother died last Saturday in a tragic car accident. He has two ex wives, one he divorced over 20 years ago, but they have two kids together. The other, he just divorced a few months ago and still practically lived with, and still loved.
When he died, the first wife just totally hijacked the funeral and shut out everyone else including the most recent ex, his siblings and absolutely everyone else.
She browbeat their sons into planning the cheapest funeral even only three…Continue

All of us suffer from anxiety. It may be good anxiety or bad anxiety.When we dwell on things that are true....rightous..chaste and lovable.... You get that peace of God....if our anxieties get so bad that it interferes with our personal life.,we may need to seek professional help and its definitely nothing wrong with that. I know with some of us its a trust issue. However, I know we can find that right someone wecan talk to to help deal with our unwanted anxieties.
