Memorial Day Poppies
In 1992 when my Dad died, he was living alone in his house near Cobbs Hill Park. At one time his wife & he had beautiful gardens. His wife developed brain cancer at a very young age & when the cancer came back a second time, it left her in a coma. She moved...

The Power of the Mind
I wrote this a few years ago on Facebook  & thought I'd share it here in my blog. The other night I had a lot of trouble falling asleep. Visions of Teale's first Grand Mal seizure suddenly flooded my thoughts. I had this overwhelming sickening realization t...

Always a Musician
When we married, we had no idea how many twists and turns our life would take. Every marriage starts out with hope and promise. I'm sure I had no idea how complicated combining our separate lives into one would be. I was filled with the euphoria of a new lo...

The Rest of the Story
This is a Facebook post from December 21, 2013; One of the longest days ever... Teale had one of the worst rages ever in the garage when Mark & I should have been on our way to his Mom's service. It was so horrid, he & I were actually screaming at each othe...

A Memory of MIL
One of the most notable things about my MIL was how none of us "in laws" were good enough for her "kids." In most of my marriage I was not ever really sure if Mom liked me. Mark says I'm crazy, but truthfully I never knew, she was not a person who wore her ...
