forgiveness

Over my lifetime, I am fully aware that  I have done things or said things I wish I hadn’t.  I have directly hurt people and I have indirectly hurt people.  I have not behaved in a way that I was always proud of.  I have not been as eloquent with my words when the bottom […]

Fat Travel

I have been reading so many articles either written by bloggers or from sad Facebook posts about an awful encounter on an airplane. Recently on Facebook there was a post from a nurse who was flying and an older extremely thin woman who was seated between the couple. As the video ran, the hate spewed […]

My Muse Comes From the Dangdest places!!

I can go weeks without thinking of something to write about, but for some reason this week I am full of more useless information!! I work with all men. I realize that they don’t pay attention to things like women do and the layout of this building isn’t the greatest. The shop bathroom contains the […]

Joy? or no?

I am stubborn! This may come as a shock to you, but I am!! I am also a slow learner!! Some lessons have taken me over 40 years to sink into my thick skull!! For instance, I need to apologize to Mike when I do something that he doesn’t appreciate. I don’t like to tell […]

FMD support

I found a FaceBook group called Let’s Chat About FMD  a couple of weeks ago. I thought maybe it would be an informative group since there is not a tremendous amount of information on this disease and the symptoms are different for many people. I have said before that the disease that gets the most money […]

New Year, No New ME

I was going through my Facebook Memories and ran across my New Year’s post from 2017. Certainly that was a year of complete introspection because February 14, 2017 would take me to Cleveland Clinic for a surgery I shouldn’t have survived. New Year’s 2017 found me in a place of sheer appreciation for the life […]

Dad…..peace

I took my Dad home to Kilspendie Kirk in Kilspendis Scotland on Sunday, September 30th, a journey that is now complete. It is no accident that everything that has happened up to this point, either in my life, or in my grief was bringing me full circle even if I didn’t know it at the […]
