Just a reminder to all of you over these next few days. The weather reports all over are talking extreme heat. Those of you out West have even warmer temperatures than here in the Midwest or East. Please keep well hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Hopefully all of you have air in your homes. If not, please find a friend or relative that has air and see if you can go there. Otherwise, find out where the cooling centers in your neighborhood or town are and use them. Please take care not to over exert yourself and check in here.

Wow It has been a whirlwind of a year. It will be 15 months since Larry went to his heavenly reward on August 3rd. There have been ups and downs. Haven't been on here in a while. Hope you all are doing well. I still miss Larry daily and am still learning how to have a  life without him, which is only possible through the strength that comes from God. I had something happen this week. I never expected it and certainly not this soon. I was asked and accepted a date from an old friend of both Larry and I. Please pray that God's will be done trough this relationship and that it bring glory and honor to Him (no matter where it goes from here).

Dreamt that I was standing next to my Bruce last night. Our fingers were enlaced and we just leaned into each other. He gave me so much strength. I didn't want to wake up. I just wanted to stay there hand in hand but I knew I had work to do.

Hi all. It is 18 months 07/14 & 36 yrs 07/29. This is for my beautiful Maria...

Thirty six years darling
The anniversary count,
Four and thirty together
And two without.

Our life and our love
Grew stronger each year,
A bond that can't be broken
Even though you're not here.

Center stage you did not aspire
But we knew your worth,
Thought first of others
An angel on this earth.

Another tender moment
To stop and reflect,
Celebrate our life together
And through our love connect.

Hi Marsha - I've heard this song and it makes me feel like dancing too.  I actually feel happy sometimes!

Hey everyone, I had to share this one with you and this is why.  I was teary-eyed while driving a few days back feeling sorry for myself and this song came on the radio and I have to say I found myself smiling and singing to it which shocked my sandals right off my feet.  I went home and found it on Youtube and then burned it on disc and I play it when gardening and I'm singing, working faster and jiggling my bootie to it (ugly sight) and lo and behold some people came down my sidewalk and do just what some of these people are doing ...  arms up, some fancy steps and smiling up at me.  NOTE:  Although we are grieving please pay close attention to some of the people in the video; some are alone, a wheel chair, all shapes and sizes of people and even one young woman walking on the beach alone and obviously not all that happy, but he managed to get a smile out of her with this song.  I hope with all my heart this tune sticks in your heads and brings a smile to you every so often.

Much Love

Thanks Jane P that's great as I was thinking how to watch it! Yes I bet it is a teary one.
