28th of February

This day is always a hard one for me.

It's one of those 'would have been days'.

Happy Birthday to my Dad ..........I celebrate you today and will always remember πŸ’—

Remembering you is easy, I do it every day. 
Missing you is the heartache that never goes away.


Monochrome Monday

Monday mornings aren't always the best for me.

I'm still tired from the weekend, the house is a mess and I need a strong cup of coffee to get me going.  Oh and I need to get out of the house to go get my 'sweat on'.

Do you go to the gym and when do you get a workout?  I'm a morning person.  I like to get it out of the way so it's not hanging over my head, the whole day.

lazy weekends....

Happy Monday!


Hug Someone Today

I don't think I'm the only one here....

I am sick and tired of waking up and hearing of another school shooting.  It makes me upset, makes me angry and it definetaly has me asking 'why are we not able to make our schools safe??.......why....

I hate to get political on my blog and I always try to steer away from politics, but I think we are at a point where this is beyond politics.  It's a problem.  And a big one at that.

Everytime this happens, we'll talk about this, feel bad and point fingers at each other and blame this group or that group,  but then nothing is done - or nothing that we can see that's being done.

I'm at a loss to understand how schools which are suppose to be a safe place for our kids is now not.  It's just not anymore....

Hug your kids today, give them the confidence to speak up when they see or feel something is off and tell them never to be afraid to raise a concern about something.



Valentine's Day and a Visit to the Retirement Home

And these three remain; faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is Love.

Today we visited a retirement home to spread some love and gifts to the elders in that home.  It was a heart warming event not only for them but I think I got more from it.

Both my grand parents have passed on and I remember spending time with them, listening to them tell their stories and pass on their wisdom and knowledge.  I miss that.  Of course yesterday there was the language issue but what came through was the sharing of smiles and hugs.  Lots of hugs.....

And on the home front......well love remains 

and Grace and patience too.  Cause it's important and needed 😝

.Happy Valentines to my Valentine, my rock and my best friend.


Truth Tuesday

Want to know something about me......there are so many times in my life where I just 'wing it'! 

Yep, I might look like I have everything under control and things are rosy...... but don't you beleive that for a second.

Life is messy and life gets hard sometimes.  And yes adulting is hard...... but I'm so grateful that I get to do it with this man.

From the first time I met him I recall him being so calm.  Quietly confident and a man of few words but when he spoke you knew he meant every word.  And today he is still that man.

I get frassled, I worry and yes I overthink things sometimes (i'm a woman😏) so it's so great to have Rohan as a partner who is the total opposite in so many ways......
