This Mother’s Day seemed hard, as were the days leading up to it.  Harder than last year, when I think I was still very deep in the numbness following A’s death.  In the initial hours, days and weeks of losing a loved one, there is a sort of blanket of…

How do you repay someone who has done so much for you for so long?

My uncle is having open heart surgery today. This is my father’s younger brother and the father of my cousin / maid of honor / honorary nose wiper. Yes, I mean that cousin, the same one who dropped everything and hopped a flight to be by my side when A…

My A/C is broken. In fact, I’ve had it turned off since Sunday night because it was simply wasting electricity and the house wasn’t any cooler.  It’s Summer in Florida and I’m having to sleep with the windows open and just a ceiling fan running. I bought…

I spent this past holiday weekend at my oldest daughter’s apartment two hours from home spending time with her and her fiancé, going over some last minute wedding details, and trying to add at least a little bit of color to this pathetically pale…

[My apologies for being derelict in posting for a few weeks.  We are in the home stretch for our oldest daughter’s wedding in July, and last minute preparations, as well as June being a difficult month in general with our wedding anniversary and Father’s…

Dear A: Today marks 15 months since you left.  I know you didn’t leave the kids and me because you wanted to, but knowing that doesn’t make it any easier on us all. Yes, I’ve gotten better.  We all have.  We’re learning how to wander around the empty…
