These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Checking in

Hi, all.

I'll be back soon. My head just isn't into writing yet. Soon, I promise.

And if I've missed responding to any of your comments in the last couple days, don't be offended. I was just overwhelmed, deleted many emails (read them, but didn't respond), and have tried to return to a more positive place in my thinking. I've read most of your blog posts, but haven't commented. I'm not going to back up on any of this. I'm moving forward/

I'm better. I'm about through with the biggest sadness. I have moments, but I'm not drinking a nearly full bottle of wine again tonight, OK?

Back soon.  :')


  1. I am so SORRY!!! Oh. Your sis!

    Sisters are the best...they are best friend and family rolled into one.

    My thoughts are with you. Take care!

  2. I had an uncle die this way and at the time it was a terrible shock but later it was comforting to think about him in his chair watching the super bowl. What a nice way to go. I'd love to know my death would be that easy.

  3. Hi
    I am so sorry to hear the news about your sister, and I am thinking of you and your family.

  4. Lynilu, I am so sorry that you too are going through the loss of a sister. What I'm focused on here is your report that "there was much happiness in her last hours." And the apparent peacefulness of her death is SUCH a blessing! My sister's passing was far different. She was totally conscious while she died of sudden massive bleeding from the carotid artery, with blood gushing out of her mouth and tracheotomy while her daughter watched.

    many hugs,

  5. Mary, thanks. Yes, they are certainly the best. I will greatly miss having her, and being the only "sis" now to my brothers is a daunting position. A lot to live up to.

    Linda, yes, wouldn't we all? I regret the suddenness of it (every other family death has been more or less expected) but I am dancing for the peacefulness.

    Thanks, Julie. It's appreciated.

    Betty, trust me, I know the blessings of my sister's passing. I'm so sorry your sister suffered as she did. I hope you can find solace in the fact of her peace, at long last.

  6. Take care of yourself. Your in my thoughts.

  7. Thanks, Merikay. I just had a nice long talk with one of my brothers, and we agree it stinks, but we will have each other for as long as we are destined. That sounds cynical, but it's not meant that way. He and I are both at peace with however long we have. I know my sis was, too. :')

  8. Don't you worry about anyone Lyn. My mom passed last December and I am still having difficulties with it. Have your wine and remember all of the fond memories. Love to You...
    Love Di ♥

  9. I know, Di. I’ve been through this so often. This time it seems a better that others because of the happy frame of mind she was in and knowing she apparently didn’t suffer. It’s just a process of time. Don’t you wish we had immediate healing?


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
