This post is going to be more about the losses we suffer during this life and how we decide to receive the gains in the process of that. This photo was taken circa the 1960s! That’s me on the left with that huge bottle of Coca Cola yuck lol – DEFINITELY not something I drink nor would I any longer. As Maya Angelou said, when I learn better I do better. Next to me was my younger sister by one year and 10 months, Paula. My...

It’s hard to believe it’s been over THREE months since we said goodbye to our Beauty Queen aka Schatzie, our Carolina Dog.

I happened to glance to my left and the hill in the photo was my view…the same one my sweet Meshach (Great Dane in photo) used to dash up with sheer, unbridled delight. I had to squat down and simply allow the sorrow of his loss to wash over me. My sweet girl Schatzie sat by me with my arm about her, as I allowed myself to embrace the...
