76 Year Old woman finds birth family

I understand that reunions aren't always rosy and far too often result in heartache and sadness.  However that is not the case for this woman who had been searching for about 40 years.  Sure that she would not find any family by this point, a pleasant surprise came her way. Stories like this warm my heart especially when it involves a senior as the person searching.   Have a watch and it may give you a glimmer of hope.

Family Reunion on Fathers day

Let me preface this with a huge shout out of thanks to Mary and Lorin for an amazing day! (((Hugs))) Today…Fathers Day….I found myself reflective , grateful, yet extremely melancholy/pensive. As we spend the day at a family reunion it is not lost on me those who brought us together in life…our fathers. They are no longer here and I take a moment to myself to thank them for who they were, what they stood for and all that they did for us as a family. If it were not for them we wouldn’t be in th...

Reflection

“We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable. It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends and living our lives.” ~Maya Angelou~     Those of you that know me know I am a very private person (she says as she blogs... lol) , however today I am yet again stepping outside of my box as I want to pay well overdue homage to a couple of special ladies.   I got a call this morning from a friend asking if I wanted to pop out to an event in the city, so off...

Regroup time

I thought I would pop on and touch base as it's been quite some time since my last post. With many things going on I've had to step back, refocus, regroup and re-energize.  I hope to be back up and at it really soon and thank you so much for your blog inquiries and for checking in.   Please do come back and stay tuned in. In the meantime over this crazy busy time of year please take time to breathe.  ;)

Heaven sent strength

  In our childhood and teen years we went to a local Catholic school and church where there was a local family that was quite a large family in toll and over the years my brother “H” had developed and sustained a friendship with one of the fellows from this family.  For anonymity purposes we’ll call him “P”.    As the years went by my brother “H” has stayed local to where we grew up and has very strong friendships with all his childhood buds including “P” who later had met and married a gal “...

Gluten Free whole grain bread.

One of the things I miss the most since having gone gluten-free is a really good whole wheat bread.  Not just whole wheat bread but one that can be eaten fresh or toasted.  Well I have to say I've go t it!! Oh my gosh this is by far the best Ive made thus far...whole what that is.  It's got a really great texture so it doesn't fall apart as soon as you pick it up or in the toaster which as you know is not fun.  You're hungry and waiting for that piece of toast, up it pops and you go to grab ...
