For My Grandaughter Sherri

My dear Sherri. I hope you can understand all this. You are such a good girl, and so smart and strong too. Your gramma has to go on a trip baby and I can't come back. My daddy is calling me home and since I'm a good girl too, I have to go. Don't worry baby, your daddy won't be...

Accepting With Peace

All in all, I can't complain about my years lived. Through the good and bad, it has led me a few understandings. I have learned that it's easier to accept what comes your way than it is to fight it. Accept a situation and deal with it the best you can in a positive way. This is the only way...

Saying Thanks

I just want to say thank you.  Thank you for allowing me to leave my thoughts and words of wisdom behind for my family.  I don't have much energy at this point, so being able to hit "record" when I'm ready, and "stop" when I'm tired, is so much easier than what Mom went through.  We pushed Mom to get...

Dividing Our Estate

My wife and I ran into a thorny issue while getting our affairs in order.  We're wrestling with whether it's ever okay to divide an estate unequally among adult children.  We know it's legal to handle our estate this way, but there could be other ramifications.  For instance, what if one child suffers from drug, alcohol, or gambling addiction?  The...

Down the rabbit hole

Staying at home translates into boredom quickly, so we should try to fill the time with something useful. That is what the wise would say. I'm not wise, so I spend my free time getting stuck in old memories. I went through my collection of old concert DVDs and photo albums these last three days. It was such a rollercoaster...

A toned-down Easter

Happy Easter to everyone! I am slightly late, but I hope my prayers that you all stay safe and healthy wherever you are will reach you just fine. Was your Easter unusually quiet? I thought that's how mine would be, except that we had the longest video chat in our lives last Sunday! To be honest, I was amused that...

Feeling Cheated

I'm starting to feel cheated of the last bit of life I have left.  I was diagnosed with ALS a couple of months ago.  It took some time to come to terms with having a fatal disease and one that completely takes away your independence at that.  One thing that helped me cope was to create a mini-bucket list of...

Scary, Uncertain Times

This thing with the coronavirus feels so BIG, like our civilization is careening out of control.  As of this moment, the United States has more confirmed cases of the coronavirus than any other nation.  It's serious business; people are dying and the economy has essentially shut down. Schools have closed and working parents are scrambling for child care.  It's a...

Best Birthday Ever (building memories)

It's my birthday and I am 67 today.  I've never felt so lucky as I did surrounded by my husband, kids, and grandkids.  I kept finding myself overwhelmed by my feelings of love for them.  Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming.  Course, I guess pinching is fitting today since it's Patrick's Day.  I guess it's a...

One More Chance

Some of my family could be a little toxic at times.  I spent time in therapy learning how to be a loving daughter while still setting firm personal boundaries.  When I think about death, I think about all the family I've lost over the years and the regrets that I have.  So many times the person passed away before I...

One Of These Things (Is Not Like The Others)

Sometimes I feel so selfish.  I find it difficult to focus on my family and how my disease is affecting them.  It's hard though.  I'm very much aware of what I'm losing out on, of what I'll never see and experience, of what I'll never achieve.  Death is tough to face.  Just thinking about it makes me feel like the...

Another Leap Year

What do you know, tomorrow is Leap Year and I'm still here to experience it.   I always felt like GOD was giving us an extra gift by allotting us one additional day every four years.  It's another day to commune with family, to get stuff done, and to just enjoy life.  I never thought I'd see another one.  When I...
