What it's like to be everyone support but not have any your self

My dad passed away eight months ago. He battled with his sickness for a long time. I was hard to watch and help. I am the youngest of his children in only 20. I have five older siblings.

Proud Day

Just an ordinary day for us, Pride Day... just an ordinary photo of us riding the city's electric train to the downtown Pride Day parade.  I think we stayed for about 2 hours before heading home to see the dogs.  Every day was Pride Day, for us no need to make a big deal of it because we didn't give a damn what anyone thought.  And I still don't.  But we understood its original intent and significance; we both dealt with discrimination, ignorance, religious bigotry, downright blind hatred of…

The Hatred That Leads to Death - Great Sadness

As a watch the television, I hear of great sadness in Charleston.

They say that a young white male shot up a black church..

As a watch television, I see methodist killing methodist and

christians killing christians

As a watch television, I see tribal wars in other nations.

Can we all just get along? I hate the racial tension among us

I cant wait to the time when every nation can serve together without killing each other -NVT Revelation 7:9

The Importance of Tangible Memories

There are reminders of my mother all over the house; the family heirlooms I inherited, the gifts she gave me, family photographs, and the personal items I chose to save. I would not part with the family heirlooms or her handwritten recipe cards, but what about all the letters, cards, and her personal items I elected to keep?…

Father's Day

I found this Father's Day note from the doggies on the kitchen counter last year, next to my coffee cup, the usual place where Tim knew they'd be seen first thing in the morning, starting my day off…

SEARCHING FOR WIDOW/WIDOWER SUPPORT GROUPS IN PORT CHARLOTTE OR PUNTA GORDA

Myl husband had stage 4 brain cancer and was sick for a very long time.  I feel I can recover this loss better if I attend support group meetings to learn how other people cope with the loss of a loved one.  I am not sure how to research group support meetings and how I can learn the guidelines of attending an event.

They're Burpless!

A couple years ago Tim drove my big black convertible over the mountains from Seattle to Kennewick for an overnight visit with his mom, Arlis Wennberg.  Shown is the result of 1) not using sunscreen and 2) driving a big black convertible 80 mph through the high desert of Eastern Washington. 

I first met his…

A Lesson Learned

 I want to share one lesson that I have learned since the passing of my beloved Noreen 34 months ago. In my case it has to do with my sons...no daughters.. and other family members who have not even mentioned her name to me or talked about her in well over a year,  This is a mother who at one time worked 49 straight days....sometimes 10 hours a day....in a hot manufacturing plant so that her family could have a better life.

  It seems that they are ignoring her sacrifice and her very…

Maybe I should seek help?

I just had to have a talk to with my fiancé . He said he's concerned about me , concerned about my drinking and I don't blame him I am too. Ever since I ended up in the ER from drinking so much that my stomach became inflamed. Truth is it's easy to be drunk it's hard to be sober, I miss my brother Joshua so much. I know I need to seek help(from my pastor, counsoler  or a support group. I know I've had a problem with drinking in the past and I a couple of days ago I was drinking with my mom…

Fine. Be that way.

I feel like I'm just barely here.  I feel like it's all reversed, backward, looks sorta the same but not really, like I'm in some kind of parallel universe.  My family believes I'm so strong, so smart, that I have a such level head, that I'm an incredible survivor, that I'll be fine.  That's what they tell me…

More Coffee? Outstanding!

Tim loved him some coffee.  I think it's a Norwegian-Swedish thing.  He also loved Tom Jones.  I took him to a concert at the Paramount in Seattle years ago - it stuck with him like we'd just come home from it.  He had excellent taste.  Most of the time.  I wasn't sure he wasn't serious when he pointed out a flavor to add to his espresso bar collection at home. …

I caught him in the act, sneaking donuts that he wasn't supposed to ever be eating in the first place.  I couldn't help myself, I laughed and took his photo.  He was such an…
