The Good in Goodbye

11

I went to a funeral last Friday. And I’ve been thinking a lot about it over the past week. About all funerals, really. What is it that they say about funerals? That they’re for the living? It makes sense. Only the living would really need a funeral. Because it offers a means of saying goodbye….

They Coulda’ Been Great: 2012

0

  8/21/13 I know… A “They Coulda’ Been Great” post for ALL of 2012. AllOFIT. Oh – there’s not that much of it – I was a sporadic poster that year. I’ve had so much fun looking back at the silliness evidenced in my 2013 Facebook status updates, that I decided to stroll down memory…

Summer

Today, I’ve exchanged posts with one of my favorite bloggers, Heidi Cave of Fancy Feet. You can read her favorite post of mine, I Never Thought I’d Wear Sunglasses over on her site, and below you will find my favorite post (or one of them) of hers, Summer. As a quick intro… When I first started…

Love at the Bridge

Blue ribbons in support of the Donaldsons – and a tree for Christmas: Kim from Mosey Along and her sister, Lianne wanted to do something for our good friend Anna and her family this holiday season. “Since we both love photography and have been so touched hearing how the Donaldsons’ friends and neighbours having been using…

On Gratitude. And Magic.

15

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and like most others, I’ve been thinking about gratitude. A couple of months ago, my good friend, Anna lost her twelve year old son in a flash flood. And it was yet another reminder to live in the moment – be grateful for everything I have right now, this very minute. I thought I…

Mission Possible? (Alternatively Titled: Bieber Fever for Fortysomethings)

UPDATE below if you’ve already read this! I have to confess – I saw pictures of Justin Bieber in US Weekly magazine long before I ever heard any of his music. And the only opinion I’ve ever had on his fame is that people are CRAY-CRAY with all of that hate/death to Bieber stuff. He’s just a…

I need to get back to my “Monday Links” – though that would require catching up on my blog reading… Definitely this week. Look for links on Monday. For today? There is only one. The Bridge: One Terrible Night This is a gift.  An HonestBeautifulTerrible gift. No comments on this one – you can leave…

Segue into…

I hate abrupt changes of subject. Not so much the change in topic…maybe just the tone. Don’t get me wrong – I’m all about the tangent. So that’s fine. But one minute crying about serious matters - the next minute laughing about inconsequentials? It just doesn’t feel right to me. So before I get back to my typical…

Loss

17

All week I’ve meant to post something here. I’ve got pictures and anecdotes and any number of frivolous items to relate…but I can only think about one thing today. A good friend just lost her beautiful 12 year old son. It’s awful. When you read about loss, it makes you sad. But when it’s someone…

My Second trip to San Diego this Summer…

13

…was very different from the first. A friend (I think it was Christy) once told me that you go on trips with your children and take vacations without them. So as much as I loved my first “trip” to San Diego this summer, my second visit proved this sentiment to be apt. Because that is…
