The power of a hug. I came from a family of huggers and kissers for that matter. My mom was not huge on hugs but she was huge on them in public. You know, letting everyone think we were perfect. My Nana, who did not want affection from anyone, always wanted it from me. I … Continue reading The Power of A Hug

Thanksgiving memories 2021 I am 43 this Thanksgiving. It seems strange to write those words. I am not sure if this is a me thing but I remember my mom's 40th birthday and this is the age at which I picture her the most. So, me being 43 seemed unreal. Thanksgiving this year made me … Continue reading Diary 101 – Blog Entry #5
Thanksgiving is upon us. In some ways it feels like we just finished the holiday season. It doesn’t help that we did not have much, if any, summer.

What does Easter mean to you? Easter was my second favorite holiday for many years. In some ways it was my favorite. Easter is a very religious based holiday of course, but it also was a very bunnies and candy based one as well. I dyed Easter eggs way up until I was probably 16 … Continue reading Easter Memories

Diary 101: Memorial Day Weekend It’s a time to remember those that have lost their lives in active duty. So many times, we forget that serious nature of Memorial Day, but over time it was made to be the mark of Summer beginning. Summer beginning marked by the day we remember those that lost all their summers. Seems strange. Nevertheless, I … Continue reading Diary 101:Memorial Day Weekend
Here I am starting something new. It feels like the word 'again' should be in there somewhere. Again, I’m trying something new. I'm a bit scared, quite like that saying, feeling like a 'fish out of water' type feeling, and I'm not sure what the future holds. Many humans go through phases.
