Throwback Post: Flowers With Sunset Walks and Reading


September 11 2015:

Seven bags dropped off at Goodwill and a bouquet of sunshine delivered to the kind ladies in The Vintage office. Now I’ve got almost 4 hours of respite while Lillian spends some time with Ms. Kat.

As we were walking tonight Lillian pointed out that this would be her last Friday as a 13 year old. Indeed. She’s getting ready for her 14th trip around the sun. Good golly! xoxo

A boy, a book, lovely green grass, and his guinea pig, Lovey! The perfect picture of LOVE!

I didn’t realize it was suicide prevention week. Last night I inadvertently landed on an old blog post of mine from 2012. Now, I know why. Sharing with you as it seems meant to be … And to quote my friend Jenny Payne Howe, “I share this, not because I want pity or empathy or any kind of crap like that. I’m sharing because it’s suicide prevention week.” (…/30/footsteps-out-of-darkness/ ) The climb out and the clearing and releasing of some deep “crap” from childhood through to 2006 has definitely been streaked with sadness and despair. Yet, it has been worth every tear, hurtful memory, and dark moment. I still take a step back here and there but that’s called being human. I love my self, I love this precious, beautiful life and I have an internal joy that remains no matter outside circumstances … Oceans of love to y’all! xoxo

Steps Out of Darkness

Just picked up a VERY happy young man! His first day of computer programming with NCLab! Thomas’ 3 words describing the class: epic, awesome, and love! Thank you to Stephanie for ordering one of Thomas’ LEGO prints and Scott for paying 5 times what we were asking for a print. One month paid for AND he paid for it himself … With your help! Next month is 3D printing!

Oops! Forgot to post the picture of Lillian and I before the Lillian presentation yesterday to her class! Both showing our chromosome 18 love with our shirts!

Deeply Relaxing: Reiki Testimonial


September 11 2012:

As I was driving through my neighborhood on the way home from taking Thomas & Lillian to school this morning I saw one of my neighbors standing in the middle of the street with a bucket and shovel. I slowed down, put my window down and said, “What are you doing?” with a big ole smile. Apparently I missed our wild horse visitors earlier. She said, “I’ve got two more flowers to plant and I’m gonna use this.” I said “What a good idea and that’s so resourceful.” She said, “Well, that’s what we did during the War and after the War too.” (She’s an older gal from Germany.) We chatted for a minute. I smiled and told her to have a great day. As I drove home I was thinking …. “And you were letting the worry bug start invading your thoughts ….” Served as a good reminder to give worry the boot and know that we are creative and resourceful people and that anything is possible!!! Here’s to creativity and resourcefulness and to not letting worry block our creativity and resourcefulness y’all!! 


Isn’t this woman gorgeous??? Love her to pieces … That is ALL! (Patty Romano, aka Momma, in Gulfport, Mississippi …. getting some sand to bring back to Team Member T & L)
