Thanks for hanging with me friends. My blog has been one of real, raw emotions as of late. I hope I have not depressed anyone enough to bolt but during this time. I have some things to work through so I am going to blog it out. Grief is something very real. Your friendship is treasured.
One week ago at 8:30 PM my father left this world to be with the Saints and Angels. What a week it has been. Very bittersweet with me celebrating my 50th. It’s amazing how life and plans change quickly. I am sad and tired and not sure about how to proceed.
To my friends in Florida now is the time to be careful as Hurricane Dorian is coming your way. It looks like it’s going to be dangerous. Please be safe and heed the warnings.
Suffering should heighten ones sensitivity to others suffering. As my dad suffered I’m reminded that we all will face it at some point in our lives. Life is too short to go through stuff alone. Be mindful of the plight of our fellow human beings.
I can’t say thank you enough for all the grace and care you have extended me on this my 50th birthday. Of course my heart and mind is on my father and wishing he could be here with us celebrating. This has been a very rough time for me and mine. We are taking things one moment at a time. Love and peace to you all.
Time to renew my drivers license because I turned 50. Sounds like a great way to spend some time today.
This young lad turns 50 today. This picture is from about 1975. This post is in honor of my dad who passed away just a few days before my birthday. I love you dad and mom.

Today we laid my father to rest at Chattanooga’s National Cemetery. Fortunately the weather was nice, it would have been a great day for him to go flying or dream of flying. My goodness the world is so different now without him in it. Yes it’s good he’s not suffering but I wish he were still with us and not suffering. The grieving begins and will never end. My goodness dad I miss you.
