Hi there, my name is Tony Burgess from Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA. I am a believer, bleeding-heart, idealist and blogger. I'm married to Laura and Cody is our dog. Daily I work for a blood bank. My blog is where I chronicle and curate the sacred, serious and silly things in my life. Thank you for connecting with me. Grace, peace and love!

Things As It Should Be

The things I am feeling lately are weird. I don’t feel like everything is as it should be. Maybe that is the point of life is that the only thing you can ever count on is change. Everything you know and love goes through some form of transition into another time and space and things at it should be aren’t anymore.

Funny the way change manifests itself. What my family is going through is change we never ever expected. Alas here we are.

Father and Mother Relations

I know not everyone had a good relationship with their father and or mother. Believe me I have seen how some of my friends have suffered because of it. Estrangement is no fun. My life has been blessed with a great dad who has been my rock for so many years. I hope those who have had family issues have found someone to be a surrogate or have adopted someone as their dad and or mom. Father and mother relations can be a very tough thing for those who have been hurt. Grace and peace to you all.

Blogging About Real Life

The best blogging is about the real-time stories that happen in your life. Reality provides loads of things to post about.

For me lately its about my father who is sick and under hospice care. This situation he is in was something no one expected, anticipated or was ready for. We don’t know how much time is left but we will spend quality time with him and caring for my mom too.

I feel like sharing my story of the love I have for him and the real-life suffering we are going through is important in that it might help you or someone you know. My dad is a wonderful man who I love deeply.

I welcome all who are joining me on this journey. Thank you for your concern and know that you my fellow bloggers are great!
