I mean, come on … Continue reading Mom’s Shortbread Cookies – Plus Some Holiday Baking!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I introduce you to Bill, another PALS (people living with ALS) and wish you all a Merry Christmas and only the best for the New Year! God bless! xo
On the last day of 2016, I was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance because, even with my breathing mask on, I couldn’t breathe. The doctors diagnosed me with an Upper Respiratory Infection. I didn’t think I would live to see the first day of 2017. I thought the last hours of 2016 would be the last hours of my life.
Obviously, I didn’t die. By God’s grace I lived to see another year. Every day of 2017 has been like a bonus to me, every day God gives me is a bonus. People with ALS are not supposed to live for 21 years. I hope that God will let me hang around for 2018.
I wasn’t planning on posting again this year, but I was sitting here and thought I’d type a short post to wish my blog followers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

If Tess had known she would think of him as often as she did during her final days she may have made different choices many decades ago. If she knew he would appear in her dreams, nightly, standing in the sunlight on a pathless mountainside under a blue sky while she struggled, step by step, over rocks and snow to reach him…she may have never said hello. And yet so many years ago, she initiated a simple conversation without fully releasing she also made a choice to make a space for this strange man in her mind and heart.
Tess entered his life and he her’s, grateful for a providential connection. She loved this man as she did her husband without ever really, fully knowing him.
[Boundaries remained intact. Years later when middle age became old age, gray hair to white hair, wrinkles abundant, widowed, and often alone, but seldom unhappy…
