2020 Beauty & The Beast

The good, the bad and the ugly, 2020 is officially a mic slam! I am again struck by the contrast of very real struggles faced by our country and many loved ones along with the strength and fortitude I have witnessed in so many people. As I said in my last post, Thanksgiving was a […] Read more…

A Merry Message….

Christmas Day 2020…..in many ways the culmination of a year like no other. As we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, we are more mindful than ever of our inability to control this world and it’s continual challenges. Our comfort, our peace , our joy and our very existence on this earth comes […] Read more…

My Good Vibe Week…

So, the last couple of months have been rather quiet, even boring……until a week ago!! I packed up the car on September 3rd and headed south where I proceeded to spend the next 10 days having fun and celebrating major milestones with my boys and family! Other than missing Todd, I could have stayed for […] Read more…

And I’ll Keep this World From Dragging Me Down….

You all know I love music and love to relate life to a song! As I was driving yesterday one my all time favorite Tom Petty songs came on, “I won’t back down”. Oh how I love being in my car all alone where I can sing to the top of my battered lungs without […] Read more…

Be Careful What You Ask For……

You just might get it! You won’t hear me complaining, just maybe a little nostalgic banter and sentimental tearing up at times. We sold the house! That is, we are in the process of selling the house. We also are in the process of buying a house in VA. We are so relieved but it […] Read more…

Today is a VERY GOOD DAY!

I will keep this one short. It’s late and we are in the ATL airport waiting for our flight to Richmond. Earlier today in Houston, we got the BEST report we have received since this all began in September 2018. NO MORE CHEMO!! My scans reported no new growth in my lungs and no sign […] Read more…

Hold On….

So far January has kicked my tale! That’s OK because I and the Lord intend to bring the 1, 2 punch and shut that mess down! I reported for chemo on January 6th knowing that this combo of chemo drugs has a history of wreaking havoc on my immunity and my open wound. It certainly […] Read more…
