Walking through this life, picking my Self up when I stumble, learning and growing each time. Sharing this path with others, sometimes holding hands for awhile, then saying good bye as we choose different ways. Always remembering by writing a map of my journey.

June 17, 2018
have been just a wee bit interesting.  I was digging holes for the trees I bought, when my phone rang.  It was Jason R. from work and he asked if he could give my number to Thecla, and I’m like “hell ya!!”.  Omg, Thecla from highschool tracked me down.  Not that we haven’t bumped into…

    yesterday that Jason will move into the position of Service Manager in the spring.  It’s not like I want the position, or that I have a thing about someone younger than me being my supervisor.  I just don’t work for assholes, plain and simple.  It’s hard enough right now being his ‘co-worker’, wh...

    slowly but surely pulling my feet out of the muck and mire that has had me stuck for the past while.  I totally underestimated the depth of emotion surrounding the month of May, and finally it is slipping into the past so that I can reflect on it without the weight of the emotion clouding…

    and we met at an on-campus caberet in 1982.  It wasn’t love at first sight though hahahaha In fact, he was very much interested in one of my best friends, but she wanted nothing to do with him, so I played the go-between …. hiding her in the bathroom and telling him I didn’t know…

    and I’m still recovering hahahaha my neck and shoulders hurt as if I’d worked out at the gym.  Who knew that lifting and carrying children over the span of a day would give the same results?  P and I drove through back alleys looking at people fences to get ideas for mine, and I saw…

    whatever it will be.  I know it will be busy and long, and I’m going to throw in fun as well.  I’m babysitting A all weekend, and keeping up to a 2 1/2 year old is definitely exhausting ... thank God she naps still, although today D’s Dad is here for a visit, so I…

    May 23, 2018
    is exactly when I should write.  My fingers have been poised on the keypad and nothing happens.  My chest is full and something sits in that little soft spot where my collarbone meets just below my throat.  My sponsor way back told me that when I don’t want to pray is when I should, and…

    in my backyard at 5:30 a.m. for the first time this season!!  Finally I do believe winter’s fingers are melting away.  The air is still a bit crisp, so a blanket is on my knees and I’m wearing my pink fuzzy bathrobe and winter slippers.  The city is quiet at this time, except for earlybirds…

    with a full head of hair like her daddy.  I have no details other than a picture ahahahaha but that’s only because it was 3:00 a.m. when I got the message, and my head was still half in dreamland.  Said a prayer of thanks, and waved to D with tears and abit of anger ....…

    how broken I feel inside still after three years since D passed, until after the bar-b-q with the kids on Tuesday.  I honoured his memory, like everyone seems to, on FB, and surprisingly sharing on social media did actually help in a certain way.  I’m not alone, and I could feel my friends surrou...
