BATHROOM IDEA



This is a copied idea.

It's different.

I think I like it.

Maybe ALL white to brighten it up?

With the blue accenting somewhere.

BRENTWOOD BAPTIST CHURCH IN TENNESSEE

There is a huge church near Nashville that is pretty amazing.

Not only is it a huge complex in itself but it has several satellite churches.  

Tonight, the Hubby, DIL, two grands and myself attended a remembering service for those that passed away this year.  

It was touching, beautiful and healing.

Yes, I boohooed and sobbed.  

I cry ugly btw.

This path of grief is so very hard.  It is not a club I want any of my friends to ever join again.  

But, this huge church helped tonight.  

We were the biggest group to go and place a white rose in the vase when Aaron's name was called.  

I carried the rose and passed it to DIL to place in the vase.

It was how his life was.

I was Mom then she became Wife.  

We shared him in life so we shared the rose.  It was not planned but it was a sweet moment.

Thank you Malinda.

VERY LONG BLOG POST

No.

Extremely long blog posts are usually very boring.

Who has time to read two pages of typed words about people or things you really do not know.  

So, one of my goals is to keep it short and simple.  

Stop by any time.

I may or may not be here.

But, this I can promise, there will be zero two pages of typed words.

DARKNESS



Some days there is just too much darkness.  

No hope.

No plans.

Nothingness.

AGING

 Love yourself. 

You are perfectly beautiful.

 You are enough."

AARON and RILEY



I miss you terribly.

This was the last picture of you not in the hospital.

It was taken only weeks before your death.

SOLDIER AND TRUMP....TRUTH



People.....I am to the point that I do not believe anything the main stream press says.

Why?

Because they lie.

Eventually.....the truth comes out but not by the main stream press!

The above is what actually happened between the widow of the Green Beret that was killed recently 
in an ambush and the phone call from President Donald Trump.

Our country is a mess.

COIN COLLECTING

When I was young, my parents collected pennies and dimes.  They had a collection of those blue coin books.  They were full!  They also collected half dollars.  Those books were full, too.

When we moved, the collection came up missing!  The movers had stolen them.

Today, those coins are worth a good amount of money!

I never thought I would be interested in doing the same but suddenly I am!  

It's very interesting, something like a treasure hunt.  

The pennies are easy to get.  The half dollars nope.  

Trying to figure out how to get some older Kennedy half dollars, etc.  Any one have suggestions?

The hunt is on!!!

OCTOBER

It's the first day of October.  

How can that be?

The year is going by much too fast but also turtle speed slow.

We visited the counselor at the Hospice location where you left this earth.

Our lives are going forward.  We cannot go back.  Forward is the only direction available.  As much as I try to resist, live by my emotions, life moves forward.

I'm doing what I can to survive, even limiting my Facebook activities.  

I've told the Hubby and DIL that if I make it through the night, I will get up, take a shower and eat something.  After that, I have no clue what will happen.  

In a way, it's easier that way.  

Even a to do list seems overwhelming.

Life goes on.
