Gig Pics

Thought you all might enjoy seeing a picture of us from our gig last night.  Our friend Dana shot it.
Hope that today was a restful peaceful Sunday.  It was for us, just what we needed.  Can you believe April is going by so fast?

Tomorrow is a the start of a new week.  Be kind, smile, spread some joy and breathe.

I love porch weather.   It is where I find serenity.  Our gig was awesome despite the storms.  Time for bed.  Goodnight, Sweet dreams

Good and Bad

We got a great afternoon of practice in today.  We play Old Town Coffee House in Hartselle, Al tomorrow night.  This is our first gig there and we are excited.

We also went to the garden center today and bought more tomato plants, egg plants and another butterfly bush for the butterfly garden.  I am so happy.

It has been a picture perfect weather day.  Clear blue skies, fluffy clouds, 84 degrees more June like than April, but the temps drop on Sunday.

We visited Louis at the hospital today.  He is so very frail.  I called him this afternoon and the hospice nurse was talking with him.  My heart is breaking.  Loss is tough and it does not get easier with age.

I hope your weekend is a good one.  Hug the ones you love.  Smile at those you meet.  Be kind to everyone, even those who don't deserve it.

Goodnight, Sweet dreams

Seven Years

Times flies.   Seven years ago today I wrote my first blog entry.  It has been quite a journey.  Just like life, there have been ups and downs, good and bad, happy and sad.  Many of you have been with me since the beginning, through sickness and health.

I am grateful for this journey.  I am thankful that you all have read my humble words and gazed at my photos.  You have been there for me when I needed friends, inspiration and kindness.
Thanks for a journey that would not have taken place without you.  I appreciate each of you.

I will go down this path as far as I can.  Blessings of love, joy and always kindness to each of you.
My heart is full of gratitude.   Tonight I celebrate this anniversary, never did I dream I would still be sharing this path.

Goodnight, sweet dreams

Slowly getting the yard spring and summer ready.  We cleaned and reworked the butterfly gardens out back last week.  Buddy the Bunny lives there now.  Today I found hanging baskets of petunias at our local curb market, two came home with me.  Hot pink and purple ones and they smelled so good!

We rehearsed for our gig, and Rick had to do emergency repair on our air conditioner.  Hoping we don't have to buy a new one.  I spoke with Louis this morning, he is holding his own.

Hump day was a smooth one, here's hoping the rest of the week is too.   Sending hopes of peace, kindness and joy to everyone.  May we all treat each other with respect.

John roses, honeysuckle and Francis the yoga frog all made me smile today.  I am grateful.
Tomorrow share the love, give a hug and be kind.  Everyone is fighting a battle of some sort these days.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams

Tough Day

It has been a difficult day.  My chair buddy Louis who spent my three years of IVIG treatments holding my hand, who has been to our home for holidays and family dinners is getting ready to make his transformation to the next place.  Tonight, he is holding his own but the doctors say he won't get better.

Louis is a friend, he is family.  I talk with him almost daily.  He is the kindest sweetest person you would ever want to meet.  I don't want him to suffer, but I can't imagine life without him.  I am struggling.  He doesn't want me to come to the hospital, but I want to go hug him one more time.
He knows that Rick and I love him, but I want to tell him one more time.

My heart is so heavy tonight. Loss is so hard.  I am so very grateful that he came into my life, into my family's life.

Just a reminder to all of you tonight.  Tell those you love that you love them.  Hug them, let them know you care.  Goodnight, Sweet dreams.
