My heart goes out to you, Corey. I intimately know this pain you feel from so long ago as a fresh stab to the heart. My first love died February 1, 1976. I was at his side, holding his hand as he left this world, but never my heart. All these years later I have found love again and I know he smiles on me, having kept my promise to him to fully and completely love again. You are brave to share your story. I know how hard it is to put in words. I send you loving comfort on this anniversary of your heart.

Lovely Christmas decorations! An angel perches atop our Christmas tree. This is the first tree in our nearly two year marriage. A tree of new hope and wishes of merriment for the arrival of our grown children.

Take good care of yourself, Corey. I had the same a week or so ago. The light shines on the other side. Sleep as much as you can.

I've only binge-watched television with my son. The last time we were together we watched many episodes of Dr. Who together, reminded of the good old days when we lived together. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Today is a quiet day for me. I am spending it in near meditative work on a collage I will use to cover journals. I always admire your creativity, Corey. You might not sew, but you delight us with your words and photographs. Thank you.

A joyful experience for all of you! Years ago I went to a Spice Girl concert with my nieces, then in 4th and 5th grades. (They are 20-somethings now.) I was in Kansas City visiting them with my five year old son between moves. They had purchased tickets for their family to attend. My brother-in-law, oh so generously, gave up his ticket to me. My sister and I attended with the girls while the boys did something else. What fun! I'd never even heard of the Spice Girls. But being in a sea of young girls, standing on their chairs, singing, smiling, waving signs is a fond memory. Thanks for jogging my memory, Corey!

This cake looks luscious! I'm planning a gathering of friends on the meadow next week. Looks like I just found the perfect dessert! Glad to see that Thierry and Gail are happy and doing well.

Remembering a lost loved one on a special anniversary is one of the best ways to pay tribute to that person. I hope you do something special for yourself to honor the love you feel for your father.

Beautiful! A place I've always wanted to visit. Maybe someday . . . in the meantime, I'll enjoy your photos!

There is nothing like walking to make you feel absolutely alive. I don't walk every day, but more days than not and the rest of the day is always better because of it. What a wonderful thing to walk/run with your children! Of course, you are a superhero. One of our good friends and walking partners recently passed away. As some of us were walking this morning, we thought we would have a walk dedicated to her honor sometime soon, opening up the walk to several in our small community. Perhaps as a fund raiser, perhaps not, but what a way to remember her smiling face by walking together on a (hopefully) glorious sunny autumn day.

Lovely thoughts! Especially timely as I am considering some new dreams. After all, so much has already come true! Makes me wonder what your dream might be. It will be.

The back meadow is still blanketed with snow. But the sun is shining, giving hope that spring is on the way! As soon as the green returns, I will walk along the river and in the meadow, looking for greens!

Isn't being a parent to an adult the most amazing thing? Being a mother has brought more depth and openness to love than anything I could have ever imagined. Enjoy the moments!

I have always wanted to visit Venice. Now I know when I should plan a trip there! How I long to dress up in costume and step into another world. Perhaps I'd never come back.

What beauty to share! Thank you for expanding our world once again, Corey! Creativity today: baking bread to take to my meditation leader, making Valentines to share with girlfriends at coffee later this afternoon. Think we all need to celebrate our own version of creativity every day. Thanks for helping us share the many ways we do so.

What lovely stories to read! Letters touch our souls, don't they? When I was a little girl, just moved away with my parents from our home town, my grandfather wrote to me. Instead of writing in his own voice, his dog "penned" the letters to me, telling me what was going on back home, in the garden, and how much my grandfather missed me. Several years ago my aunt gave me post cards that my grandfather's mother and aunt sent back and forth to each other, not being able to phone(or email)each other as we take so for granted. Treasures those older letters are. But not all letters are so treasured or kind. For some reason a few nights ago, awake in the middle of the night, I remembered the letter my now ex husband wrote to me several years ago. An ultimatium to return to him, threatening me that I would lose my son. Why on earth did I think of that letter now? In the middle of the night? I wondered where it is, but I don't even want to see it any more. Thankfully, his threat, like so many he gave through the years, was unfounded. I never lost my son, now graduated from high school and soon to go to basic training for the Marines. I'm certain we'll exchange some good letters while he is going through that training! Believe me, I'll keep track of those letters!
