Nothing left to buy but memories

How grateful can a Mom be?

Nothing left to buy but memories.

The new upstairs has been a nice purchase.

If we are blessed enough to have a few more months, we will witness him spreading his wings.

The new world order of not being physically present in his life opens opportunities to continue to teach him.

What do two 60-somethings do with their life after the children are gone?

PS. Son, our home is your home. It will always be your home. And we promise to cherish every visit you bless us with. We also promise to visit you as often as possible, wherever you are in the world.

Dear memories

Dear memories,

In our weakness, we are strong.

Some say, “The meek shall inherit the earth.”

Faith, like running (or writing a book) gets easier the more we consistently apply ourselves.

The basics.

Never get bored with the basics.

Use your memories to prove to yourself how far you’ve come.

Everyday is Father’s Day, no?

Hey Dad, assuming there’s a cool version of FB where you are.

Sorry we didn’t get to spend more time together.

Guess I thought you’d live forever.

Never in a million years saw Alzheimer’s (the early onset, rapid-progression kind) coming.

Looking back, guess I used career ambition to hide the pain and denial.

My bad.

I know you forgive me and I’m at peace with that.

And hey, your Grandson (the one you never got to meet, although the trip was just two months away), he’s taller than me now – yeah, he’s only 12.

And one more thing. Thought it was amazing that you were 50 before you bought your first car brand new.

At 54, I’m still waiting. Guess I’m an over achiever like that.

I’ll see you when I see you.

PS. Happy Father’s Day Dad.

Missing Carter


Ever miss something or someone so much that it takes your breath away?

Not wanting to belabor the point, however, yesterday was tough coming home.

You know what I’m talking about. And I was just grieving the loss of a Pet.

Ever wonder what it must be like to try to recover from the loss of a child, perhaps a teenager who is taken away suddenly and tragically?

Today is dedicated to those Families. If you are one of them, or know a Family like this (we know several), please pray for them with all your heart.

We can very likely assume that they are going through a hell that is impossible to imagine. And a hell that may never go away. Ever.
