Family

Several months ago we lost the patriarch of our family. He was a successful man who worked hard and achieved the American dream. He had a dry sense of humor, and a was a role model to all that knew him. He was my fathers oldest brother, and we loved him very much. I pray my uncle and my father meet in heaven. Along with all my families lost souls.

I am not including real names. Privacy?

Yesterday, my family from out of town, got together to celebrate my uncles life. He passed away after suffering with health problems for years. It was a fantastic event. Afterwards, I knew I would like to spend more time with everyone there. I am praying the next event will be a wedding.

LOST IN RELECTION!

It happens when your terminal illness leaves you home alone , and unable to drive.   Your thoughts become almost like a friend except they do not talk back.  Lost in reflection?   Is it good or bad?  Percentage wise, I reflect on what should I do?  Nothing major.  How can I take my Grandson Hudson to the Zoo, Beach, and Children museum.   I try to leave negative thoughts out of the conversation.  I know, on a dreary Friday and  I start writing, that it’s a good day.  I thank God and the universe for all that is good!  PEACE

 

“A LITTLE KINDNESS GOES A LONG WAY”

Yesterday, my sister Martha and her husband Eric took me antique shopping. I was having fun, but as time went by I began to melt. Walking became a chore, and I became dehydrated. It got so bad I thought I might faint. I was lucky a nice sales lady took care of me. Thank you “Hudson House Galleries” in Funkstown, MD, for giving me a bottle of water and a comfy chair to sit on as I regained my strength. They are mastercraftsman at antiqe resoration, and a go-to shop for interior designer’s. I am not use to small town kindness. One thing I know is I like it. I take alot of medication and live in fear I may get sick…fall etc., when I am out. I am lucky I have wonderful friends and family to take me where I need to go.

Surround Yourself With Those You Adore

I adore my grandson.  His name is Hudson.  Lately, I have had problems walking, sitting and lying down.  My back, since I was diagnosed with bone cancer, attacked and fractured seven vertebrae.  My life as I knew it is now long gone. I need help getting out of bed, standing up from a chair.  So, taking care of Hudson alone is hard.  He is an active 4 year old.  Luckey, he is smart and follows directions.  Our time together makes my day.  I spoil him as much as I can.  Without Hudson, There would be a hole in my heart.  He gives me purpose, and without purpose what do you have?   Nothing.DSCN0012 (2)

“Gifts of Healing”

I dread going to the mailbox.  My mail consists of medical bills.  So when Dave, my husband, handed me a package my frown turned into a smile.  Inside I found a handwritten card which I sat down to read  later.  I reached my hand in gingerly.  I felt a silky fabric, and the weight of the object felt like jewelry.   Happily surprised when I pulled out a silk satchel and emptied the contents.  A beaded necklace with a silver patina cross, and three beaded bracelet’s, made such a profound difference in my mental well-being.  Theses gifts, with stones of powerful healing energy, dried my tears.  I walked out onto the back deck… sat down and read my letter.  Ahhhhhhh It’s really the simple things that make life great.  I love you Cousin.  Artist:  Carol Judge McDonnell.  CJ teaches Yoga at Navarre Living Yoga in Navarre, FL.  Her jewelry can also be purchased there.
