I finished reading the book I have been working on last night when I should have been sleeping. I laid in bed and sobbed. As I sat up to dry my tears I awoke My husband, he was wondering what was up. I said oh you know me, just crying over the ending of another […]


Well so far being 51 has its upside. I have had so many nice birthday wishes! Had people stop in just to say hello at work, and my best girlfriend popped in too. It was great, I even got a lovely little tiny cake. I love miniatures. 🙂 Then off to dinner with two other […]

No on told me being a parent would be like this. No one told me the choices they make can make you ache inside as if it is happening to you. No one told me that when they fall down, when they pretend it does not hurt, the pain you feel is excruciating. My heart […]


The sadness that sits on me will be there for now. It is my friend. It is my companion. I will embrace it, feel it and then let it settle. I know it is just a thing, a part of life, I will not avoid it or ignore it. I am strong and it will […]
