True Love

Happy Valentines Day to you and yours!  I wrote this poem about me and my husband!

True love

It must be

From above.

It’s like no other

It’s been almost 23

Years and that almost

Brings me to more


We’ve been through

So much.

But we love

Each other so!

I’m so lucky to

Have a guy like him

What would I do without


I do not

One Mom

Today is my mom’s birthday even though she really don’t remember it!  I started this blog because I wanted to share about my experiences and challenges that we face because of Alzheimer’s disease!   I hope I can help someone else who might be facing this also!  I wrote this poem! Have a great day!

You only have

One mom in

Your life and


I have the best

Of all the rest!

She might not

Know that

I love her so!

But she has been

With me since!

I was born

She has seen me at

My worst

And best.

Since I was a


And many more!

She has seen me through

And when I was feeling


Now that’s she’s older

Things have been changing!

I have to take care

Of her!

Instead of like before!

It might not be easy!

But I don’t care!

She is my mother!

Like no

A man

I wrote this poem.  It’s a true story that happened last week in my hometown of Albion New York.  I hope you have a wonderful day!🌼😊

He was just a man

Standing there

But nobody really cared!

He looked so sad when

I looked at him.

We were driving in our car

And I couldn’t help but


He was holding  a


Will work for food!

But what could I do?

So we drove by him

And got him a


At least tried

To help him!

As much as we could!

Maybe we did some good!


Also I reached 100  followers.  Thank you for continuing following my blog.  I love and appreciate all of you so much!




Little kid

Today I really feel like giving up my blog.  I know all of you have felt the same way at some point in time.  I really hope I am helping someone out there who may be struggling.  To be honest I haven’t been feeling very good and I don’t know what is going on.  So I’m trying to do my very best.  I just started this and I still have a lot of work to do to better this.  I have a great deal of questions.  I really hope you are enjoying my posts!  Any suggestions you have would be appreciated.  I wrote this poem and I hope you like it. I really enjoy sharing with all of you!  I guess I just got to keep moving forward!😊🌼

When I was a

Little kid. I wonder

What I did?

It’s funny how

Life goes by !

In a blink of a eye!

You don’t even realize it

Til it’s gone.

Sometimes I long for the day

When I used to go out

And play!

And do things that were


Like run around and just

Be a kid!

It seems like so long ago!

When the things were


So here I am at

Middle age

And think back to

The days of

Long ago!🌼😊


I wrote this poem.  We are all so busy let us all remember the true meaning of Christmas.  I hope you all have a great day! 😊


A day to celebrate

Christ’s birth

Who came to


To show his way


We should always

Remember the

Precious gift

He is and trust

In him no matter what

And love others.🌼😊

Best Friend

This poem is about my best friend Tracy who died two years ago .  We had such a special friendship together and I still miss her everyday.  Maybe you can relate and cherish those relationships with your best friend.  Have a wonderful weekend.

It’s been almost

Two years but

That still brings me

To many more tears.

I really miss my dear

Friend who has been

With me to the end.

There’s so much I could

Tell her.

And share with her

But I know she is

Watching over us and

She’s there in the air.

And the flowers that


She’s there with you

And I know I

Will see her again


So that just makes

Me pray more


Long Time

I wrote this poem a couple of years ago.  Sometimes we feel like we are alone but God never leaves us or forsakes us.  I was going through a lot in my life and felt very lonely and upset.  Maybe you can relate.  I hope it helps someone out there.  Have a great day!

This has been a long time

To see you shine

Where are you ?

Your there somewhere

I got to trust

In you to

Help me through

I know you can do

All that you say

Cuz with you

There’s a way!

To trust in you

Trust in you

Even when I don’t see


Your there carrying me

Along the way!


Trust in the Lord with all they heart lean not on Thy own understanding acknowledge him and he shall direct they paths.

Proverbs 3 5-6





I wrote this poem.  I hope you like it.  I hope you are enjoying my blog and it touches you in some way.  I’m working on making it better.  I appreciate all of you so very much.  Have a great day!


We never know

How much time

We have left.

We could be here

One day.

And gone the


We just never know.


It’s so important to

Love the people

Who love you and

Tell them often

How much they

Mean to you

So they won’t be blue.

Be thankful for

All the times you


With each other

Because you never know

If you will have


Remember Me

I wrote this poem.  My mom has Alzheimer’s disease and it’s so hard to think about one day she might not no who I am.  So I wrote this with tears running down my face.  I pray for her healing !  I hope this helps someone out there who also is facing this with  a friend or family member!  Have a great weekend.

I want to make

Her a memory book

So when she looks

She will remember


How can I keep All

Of her memories

In a book of

My life and strife.

It cuts me so deep

It almost puts me to


I know she cares


I want her to know

That I love her

And I will never

Forget her


She’s my mother

And nothing will

Ever erase that!


Just me

I wrote this poem.  I hope you like it.  Have a great day!

I just want to be me

So I can be free

It doesn’t matter

What others look like

I just want to be as

You made me.

We all try and try

And I don’t

Know why?

Because you care and

Love us all

From above!

So we should just

Be happy

Who we are

And never try

To change

For anyone.😊🌼


Blog Reflection

Today I thought I would write about how you think my blog is going with you.  I hope you are enjoying my posts as much as I am.  I’ve enjoyed sharing with you and I’ve really enjoyed reading all of your posts too.  I thought I would ask if you like this blog as much as I do writing them?

I’m really new to this so I want to make sure if I’m doing a good job at this is all very new to me.  So I thought I would ask you your input on how you think I’m doing?  I would like to get your feedback whether good or bad ? I want to do the best for everyone.  If I can help one person than it will be worth it.

I am looking forward to the Christmas season and I am awaiting the arrival of my new grand daughter any day now.  So please keep my daughter Becca in your prayers.  I appreciate all of you so very much.  I hope you all have a wonderful day.😊



Have a great day! 😊

People are different

In all ways or another

Some are real quiet and

Some are real loud

That makes all


Because that’s the way

God has made us

In a very special way

There’s nothing else

You can say is

Thank you for the way

That you made us.!😊🌼


I hope your enjoying this blog! I have been really enjoying sharing with you.  It helps me a great deal.  This time of year is so busy for all of us it’s nice just to relax and write!  Have a wonderful day!

I got to smile

Even if it hurts

You got to be positive

That’s how you live

There is no other way

To say

You have everything

In place so

All I can really do

Is trust in you!

To help me

Make it through!😊🌼


I wrote this poem!  I hope you like it.  Enjoy your weekend!🌼😊

We all need to cherish

the good days

That we have

When they are


We don’t know how

Long they will

Last and be

Thankful always

No matter what

We have

Because it can

All change from

Day to

Day! 🌼😊






I  hope your enjoying these posts as much as I am! I wrote this poem about making decisions which sometimes is so hard . Have a wonderful day!🌼😊

Decisions decisions

Are hard to make.

Don’t know what

To do

Or say

Please can you

Show me the way

I pray

That you help me

I don’t know

What else to do but

Trust in you to

Make it through!😊🌼


Sometimes we are hard on ourselves but we should be proud of what we do and who we are no matter what it is! Have a great day!😊

I should be proud

Of myself

No matter

What I do.

I may not have a

Big career

Right now

Don’t get me wrong

But I am strong.

Even when some

Days are long

I care for my

Family and the ones who

Love me

So that

Really only

Matters to





Good morning!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!  I wrote this poem.  We all need a miracle in some way whether it’s financial physical or emotional and he knows and he cares!   I pray you get your miracle today! Thank you for sharing it really means a lot to me.

We all need a miracle

In one way or another

Some it will be easy and

Others it will be hard.

But all we need is to

Have faith and believe

In what you say

And pray.

For something to happen

Just like the

Fallen snow.

You will let us know

That your there in

The clear blue sky

And the time

We have to share

On this earth

And it will be worth

Everything that you’ve


For us!🌼😊


Happy Monday! I hope you all had a good Holiday! I did and it was nice to be with my family! Thankful for all the many blessings God has given me.  I wrote this poem.  I hope you like it!

I’m sorry

How can

I make it right

To you.

So you will

Forgive me.

It tares at

My heart

When we are

Far apart.

I hate to feel

Like this

I need a kiss

From you

To make it right

When you are

By my side

I feel like I

Can do anything

And I can take it

In stride

Forgive me please

As I’m on my knees

Waiting for you.!😊🌼





I wrote this poem.  I hope you like it and are  enjoying this blog as much as me.  It really means  a lot to me to be able to share with all of you!  I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families.  😊

This week

Is Thanksgiving

So we all need to

Be thankful

For all the

Many blessings

That he has given us

Sometimes it’s hard

And we can make

A fuss

But all we can do is

Look around and

We can find something

To be thankful about

Maybe it’s something

Little or maybe it’s

Something to scream about

But we should find


To be

Thankful about.😊🌼


I wrote this poem.  I hope you like it.  I am getting ready for Thanksgiving.  My whole family’s coming to our house.  So I’m going to be busy.  We got snow here in New York.  I hope you all have a wonderful day. 😊

Everyday we are

On a course.

Some days it’s easy

Some days it’s hard

But you lead us and

Guide us

In the way you want us

To go.

Sometimes it works out

The way we planned

And sometimes

We wonder?

Where you are?

And we wonder

Why this is happening?

But all along the way

Your there every step of

The way!

No matter what

You care.

And love us all

The same.😊🌼










My Dad

I wrote this poem because I’ve told you about my mom but my dad has been with my mom through everything.  And he deserves a lot of credit because he helps her so much and he is very sick himself with major health issues.  I have been so blessed to have two incredible parents.  I hope you like it and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  😊

My dad

When I think

About him

It makes me

Want to grin.

He is a quiet


But he tries

He takes good care

Of her.

Even when it’s

Very hard.

And long

Don’t get me


He cares so

Much for her

And he needs a

Gentle touch

From you



I wrote this poem.  I feel like sometimes we try and figure things out and sometimes it just doesn’t work out.  And we get frustrated and wonder why.  I bet some on you can relate today.  Have a wonderful day.😊🌼

Just when I

Think I have

Everything figured out

More things come about

Don’t know why?

But at least I


It just keeps

Going, going, going

To the very end

There is nothing

I can do

But trust in you

Along the way

There’s no more

That I can say !😊🌼

Trust in the Lord with all they heart lean not on Thy own understanding acknowledge him and he shall direct they paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

Little things

I wrote this poem.  I hope you like it.  It really helps me to share with all of you.  Have a great day.  😊

Little things

They mean

A lot to us

Sometimes we think

People don’t care

But they do

Even when it’s

Something little

It can really mean a

Lot to someone

So cherish the

Little things cuz

They can mean

The world to


Even if you think

It doesn’t matter

It could to someone

You just don’t know

Even if they are

Little things.  😊🌼



Servants heart

I  wrote this poem a couple of years ago.  I hope you like it.  Have a wonderful day.😊🌼

Give me a

Servants heart.

Oh Lord

Like never


I can feel you inside

Me trying

To guide me

In the way you

Want me to go

You will let me know

Where it is

I want to

Live for you


There is no other way

What else can I

Say except

I love you.🌼😊

Miss her

I wrote this poem.  It really helps me to share and I hope I can help someone else who needs it .   Have a great Monday.😊🌼

I miss her

I miss her

It’s not fair

That I care

she’s my Mom

And the lady who

Has been with me my

Whole life

And strife.

It’s to much to bear

And take it all in

Since I was  a

Little kid.

She’s been there

For me now

She can hardly

Remember me

I don’t want her

To forget all the

Good times

It’s so hard

I want to guard her memory

Of me.

I love her  so much

She needs a

Sweet touch

From all of this.🌼😊



I’ve decided to write about what is going on in my life lately.  I have really enjoyed writing and sharing with all of you.  I hope you have enjoyed it too.  I am truly grateful to all of my followers and encouragement that you have given me.  It means a lot to me.  I have never did anything like this before so I’m just learning.

My mom is about the same and she can still do some things.  I am very grateful for that.  Every day brings more challenges but we are trying our best.  This disease changes from day to day.  I know I have to prepare myself for things that are coming but it is very hard sometimes.

Also I have been thinking about going back to college and taking another math class and finally get my Human Services degree.  It’s been such  long road for me and I really want to finish this.  I have been considering going into something in the medical field.  I have always thought about doing something in the medical billing and coding field  but I’m 51 years young and I’m just not sure what I want to do yet.  It’s so hard to figure out sometimes.  I have always just done childcare and worked in several pre schools over the years so this is a big change for me.  There are many job opportunities out there for that so it might be a good fit for me.

Sunday we are having a baby shower for my daughter.  She is having a little girl so this will be my fourth grandchild.  I’m real excited and nervous for her.  I have two grandsons and one grand daughter now.  I love them and love being a grandma.

I just wanted to share this with you.  I love blogging and I hope you are enjoying it too.  Have a wonderful day.  😊🌼



I’m enjoying sharing with you.  I hope you like it I wrote it.  Sometimes we wonder why things go on but we have to know that everything happens for a reason. Have a great day! 🌼😊

Why do things have

To be

So hard.

I don’t


But you know

When it’s time

To go

I try and try

But don’t know why

I just have

To trust in


I can make it as

long as your by

My side

And take it

In stride.😊🌼


I wrote this poem.  I hope you like it.  Have a wonderful day.


What is it?

I don’t know

A moment in time

24 hours go by so


You don’t even

Realize it

Til it’s gone

You should cherish

Everyday cuz we

Never know how much

Time we have left

Spend as much time

With the people

You love and

Cherish every minute!😊🌼


I wrote this poem.  I hope you like it.  I am really enjoying this blog and thank you for viewing it.  It means a lot to me.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Sometimes I wonder

Where you are

I know you are


I can see you

In someone’s smile

Or laugh

I know your there

When I look out and

See the sun shining

and the

Beautiful blue clouds

I know your there

When I see the

Flowers and birds

In the air

It’s so amazing

Your everywhere !😊🌼


I wrote this poem last year.  Sometimes we don’t understand what to do and we try our best.  I’ve been discovering that God has everything in his hands and he takes care  of us.  😊🌼 I hope you like it and it helps someone.

I’m at a cross roads

And I don’t know which

Way to turn

What way should

I go?

Which way

Should I

Turn next?

I don’t know?

Please show me what

You want me to do

Help me!

Do what you want! 😊


I wrote this poem about a year ago when I was let go from a job.  It was very unexpected but I know it was really for the best.  Maybe you can relate somehow it still hurt a lot.  I hope this helps someone who is hurting today.


There will be one less chair

But nobody will care

They won’t even remember that I was


It’s a shame you try your very best

But it’s never good enough

They will go on just like before

But I am hurt even though

No one

Really cares.😊

Thanks for letting me share.  It means a lot to me.


Happy Halloween!

Pumpkins are from the squash family and they get their orange color from carotenoid pigments including beta cryptomanthin alpha and beta carotene.  All of which are pro vitamin A compounds converted to vitamin A in the body.

1. 5 billion pounds of pumpkins are produced each year.  The top states are Illinois, Indiana ,Ohio,Pennsylvania and California

Most parts of the pumpkin are eligible including the freshly shell the leaves and even the flowers. Pumpkins are popular for Halloween and Thanksgiving.

The smaller sweet pumpkin or pie pumpkin is the best pumpkin for cooking.

90 percent of pumpkins is water.

The state of Illinois grows the most pumpkins in the US.

Pumpkins are a fruit.

I found this information in the Wikipedia.


The Fall


The Fall

All the leaves are coming down

Falling falling

The winds shifting and the crisp air is


Just like the seasons change we change

All the colors are coming down

Can’t stop it

Just have it see it.

Can’t Believe it.

I wrote this poem.  I woke up this morning to snow in New York but I love the Fall weather.  I hope you have a great day.😊


This poem I wrote and I hope you all have a fantastic day.  I’m over whelmed by everyone liking my poems.  I never shared with anyone.


What do you see

Looking back at you

I do not know

Sometimes you don’t see what you want

You might see something that is not so


You just never know

Or other times it might be a really good day

And you might see a big smile

Looking at


The end

I wrote this poem last year in July.  I hope it helps someone.

Doctor visits hospital tests

when is going to end my pain

I’m feeling

Only you know the answers

Dear Lord

Through all this you only make me


I got to keep holding on to you

There’s nothing else I can do

With you by my side

I take everything in stride

And try to enjoy the ride

I know this is for someone

That’s hurting and feels like there is no

End with God on your side you can

Begin to mend.😊

Slipping away

This poem is about my mom I wrote it.  Please remember her in your prayers.  It really helps me to share !!😊

She’s slipping away


And all I can do is pray

She’s my mom

And I love her so much

But right now

She needs your sweet touch

It’s so hard

To understand

That someday soon

She might not remember me

And it really makes me want to flee

But I can’t really I just have to bear it

And try my best to make it through

All I can do is hold back the tears

This woman who has been with

Me all of these years

I wish it would just go away

But really all I can do is pray everyday.

The walk

Tomorrow I am going to walk for Alzheimer’s disease to raise money for research.  I thought I would share a few facts about this disease.

1. Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the US.

2. Every 67 seconds someone develops Alzheimer’s disease.

3.  Women in their 60’s are 2 times more likely to develop Alzheimer’s over the rest of their lives than breast cancer.

4.  55.000 people living with Alzheimer’s in Western New York.

Have a great weekend!😊🌼




Today I want to share with you just how frustrating it is and has been for me to look for and find employment.    I have gone to I can’t tell you many interviews and I have been very disapponted.  If you are facing that I know how you feel because I have been through that too.  I hope this helps someone today.  I wrote this poem.

Apply apply

Wait for the answer

Start again try try

Do it over

It’s so frustrating

But I have to keep it up

Somewhere there is the perfect job for me


The Sky

God paints the sky

Everyday with new colors and things

To help us know that he is with us

There are blue skies and yellow suns

To get our attention and white clouds and

We know that our creator lives in

The flowers that bloom and the birds of

The air!! These are All things even though

They are little they make a

Big significance

In our daily lives.

I wrote this poem I hope you like it.  😊

The wait

Sometimes we go through things in our lives and it involves a lot of waiting.  I have gone through many things and I wrote this poem one day when I was real upset because of my long wait.  I hope it helps someone know that they are not alone.

Sometimes I want to cry

But at least I have tried

So many times

Im not giving in even though

I’ve been through so much

I know you will answer with just sweet


You go before us and make our paths straight

Even though we have to wait.

Wait on the Lord be of good courage and he shall strengthen your heart wait I say on the Lord.  Psalms 27:14



Happy Monday! I hope you all have a great week!

The days keep ticking by slower and slower

It’s time for a change somewhere

But where do I turn?

I turn to you my saviour

Cuz you are the only one who


It’s so much to take in

I just have to trust in you and not give up

When the storms of life come flooding by

Just have to keep going going going

To the end.


I wrote this poem!  😊







I hope you are enjoying these posts as much as I like writing them.  I hope you all have a great weekend!  Enjoy the Fall weather.  I am trying my very best.

Today I went to visit my mom and dad and I have always enoyed going over there to see them.  Now since my mom has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease it’s not as fun anymore.  In fact it’s a little depressing for me. My mom just isn’t the same and it breaks my heart in two.  I try and be strong for my dad but inside I want to scream, cry and yell at the top of my lungs.

I miss her so much and I really miss all the good and special times that we shared together.  Now I just spend the day with the television on and I watch my mom fall in and out of consciousness.  It is very difficult to watch someone that you love go so down hill so very fast.  She once held a job, drove herself around and she always cooked and cleaned and took care of her family.  She really taught me everything I know through watching her all these years.  Now all we can do is watch her struggle.

This disease just takes everything that you have and it rips you apart.  It’s so hard to watch this take place especially when it’s someone who has been with you your whole life.  Its very devastating on you and your entire family.  My brother hasn’t seen my mom in a few months so he better prepare himself for what he is going to see. I know it’s going to be hard for him too.  He will be coming to visit on Thanksgiving.  I only have one brother.

It’s like she’s totally different not just in one way but in many.  I almost don’t want to see her because it’s so extremely difficult to take it all in.  My poor dad is so very patient with her and he is very sick most of the time too.  God bless him! My mom and dad have been married for 57 years and that’s a real accomplishment in today’s society.  I just got to take one day at a time I guess and hope and pray for the best.  That’s all I can really do.  I just hope someday they find a cure for this terrible disease.




Little girl

I Wrote this poem a couple of years ago.  My oldest daughter Rachel was living in Nevada with her family.  I didn’t see her for  4 years and it was very hard.  Now she has moved back here with my grandchildren and I get to see them.  That’s such a blessing now!  Im sure some of you can relate!  Have a great day!

I miss you little girl

Where did you go?

I know you are there somewhere

If only I could see you again

Oh how I wait for the day

to touch you again

And hold you for a while

It’s been so long

I really need to be strong

But I am your mommy ….

And I always will be

There is just no other way

To say I miss you and I Love You!

Best Friend

Today  I want to write about my best friend who passed away with a brain tumor almost 2 years ago.  I still miss her very much.  Maybe you have a best friend too that you would like to share about.  Feel free to share about your friend.

What is a Friend?

It is someone that you care about and talk to about anything.  They are with you through the good times and the bad.  I have been so blessed to have a friend like this for many years.  We became grandmas together when both of our daughters became pregnant at the same time.  We didn’t know whether to laugh or cry!

We met many years ago when our daughters were little girls and then our friendship just grew.  I even knew my friend before I met my husband of twenty years.  She has been with me when I was going through some of the worst times in my life.  She was always there for me.  She would always say it would be ok and with her help I got through it.

There were funny times to like when she was at my front door wearing only a slip because she got locked out of her house. Boy did we laugh and laugh. (Lol)  We always had something happen when we were together.  We made many zoo trips together with our children.  One time I remember we got a flat tire .  It really isn’t funny but we had so much fun and interesting times together.

I will never forget those treasured memories.  One time we went to the Greece Ridge Mall and we spent the whole day sniffing perfume.  (Lol) That’s a friend when you do things together no matter what it is.  It’s such a special bond.  That was just us just having fun talking and sharing with each other.  That’s what a true friend is.  Even sitting on my front porch talking and laughing with our coffees.  That was so special to me so cherish every minute you have with your friend because you never know how long that special time will last.  I am saying goodbye to my best friend but those times will live in my heart forever and I will never forget her or our friendship.  And I know one day we will be together again and that makes me feel good.  I can’t wait for that day so we can laugh together again.  😊


Highway of Life

Everyday were on the Highway of life

and strife

We don’t know what way to turn !

But you know!

Where to go!

Sometimes it’s so easy and we don’t know

How to go but

You lead us !! And guide us!!

Sometimes we try and go on our own and we

Hit obstacles on our way and you just let us

Then sometimes we listen to that voice and

We go where you want us too

All the time your right there watching us

Make our own mistakes and loving us along the way.

What way will we turn next will we go

Straight or make a u turn!

Then some storms come and shake us

Around and we have to try and make it through!

With you we can make it a little longer

When your by my side

But we have to take it in

Stride and enjoy the ride!

I wrote that last year!  I hope you like it!😊


Blog reflection

Today is Columbus day and my youngest daughter is home from school and my husband Gary is home from work too.  So I thought I would reflect on my blog.  This is all very new to me so if anyone has any encouragement I would really appreciate it.  I’m just trying to help other people who may be struggling in one way.  I’m just a mother who has two grown daughters and two who live with me.  I’m also a grandma to three and one more on the way in December.

Sometimes I feel like I want to do something but right now I am just staying home trying to keep myself busy.  I have worked in several daycares and preschools.  I have worked with all age groups.  This can be a very rewarding job!  I do the usual things laundry, clean the house and do the dishes.  After my daughter has her baby girl in December I’m going to babysit her.  I’m looking forward to that.  I really can’t take a regular job right now because both of my parents have serious health problems so I like to be around when they need something.  I only live five minutes from them.  So it’s very convenient.

I like to write so this is great for me.  I hope you keep coming back and I will try to do my very best! Please if you need anything I will try and help !  If you have any suggestions for me I hope you know you can share it! I would love to hear all of your stories too! I will share my life experiences and some poems!  It’s my hope that I can help someone! I hope you are all having a great day and enjoying the beautiful fall weather.


Today is National smile day so I thought I would share with you about what a smile can mean to someone.  We all need some one to smile at us every once in a while.  It lets us know that someone cares about us! It feels good to smile and it makes someone else happy!  I hope this blog is helping someone out there today!  I’m trying my very best to share some of my life experiences to help someone who might need it!  I’m trying to post 5 times a week to get into this bloggy groove.  I’m new to this so I hope you bear with me.  Thank you I hope you keep coming back I enjoy writing and I hope you enjoy it too.

A smile is a facial expression formed primarily by flexing the muscles at the side of the mouth.

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight. (Phyllis Diller)

Always remember to be happy because you never know who’s falling in love with your smile.(unknown)

1. Practice smiling a lot.

2. Practice smiling at random strangers.

3. Smile with your eyes.

4. Practice good oral hygiene.

I Wonder

I    wonder

How my mom is how my dad is

It feels like I go around and around

I wonder

How they are

They are both so sick and in pain

I’m just their daughter

What can I do

All I can do is pray and hope

They are ok and get well again

That they get healed and

Get back to the way

They once were.

I wonder.



Thanksgiving 2021

I like to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving. It truly is a special day to be thankful for all that God has given us. I’m thankful for my family and friends and for this blog to be able to share with all of you. It won’t be the same for me without both of my parents here with me but I try and do my best. I miss them so especially at the Holidays.

I’m just having the traditional Thanksgiving dinner like prob all of you.

I hope you have a wonderful Holiday. Enjoy your family and friends and be thankful for everything.

One of the hardest things we do is wait. I’ve been waiting on getting ready to start working on my new job. Sometimes it’s frustrating but I do the best I can. I wrote this poem this morning. I hope you like it. Have a wonderful day !

Waiting waiting

That is the hardest part

It seeps right down to your heart ♥️

Let me go on and on

I’m trying to be calm

But it feels like forever

And it’s never going to end

But then you get that call or text

And it ends for you

And the only thing that you can do is

Tbank God

For his faithfulness

To see you through.

Our dog Belsie

We got a Yorker on December 31st 2012 because my daughter Cheryl really wanted a dog. She was just a puppy all those years ago. We lost her on September 1st and I miss her so much. I wrote this poem. When you lose a pet it really hurts they become part of your family.

It’s ok to cry

And I’m not going to lie

I miss her everyday even

Though she was just a dog.

She meant so much to me

Her name was Bell

And she could tell

When I was upset she would come

Sit with me to help me feel better

I loved her so much I wish I could feel

Her love once again

But she’s gone now

And some how I have to live

Without my

Dear sweet Belsie!

My moms Wallet

My moms wallet
I still have my moms wallet and her purse. It’s amazing to me that this would bring so much comfort to me. When I’m down I grab my moms wallet and hold it tight. I remember back when she had dementia she would sometimes go through her purse and pull out her wallet and name off everything g that was in there. She would say I have my social security card and this card and that cuz she couldn’t remember. And to be honest it used to drive my kind of nuts but now that I think k back I would give anything to have my mom do that. It’s so funny now that she’s gone these things bring comfort to my very soul. I guess we should all just soak up every minute that we have with somebody. Who would of thought that my moms wallet would of done that to me. I wish now I would of written little things that she did even with dementia it would of given my comfort now and forever. If only I knew. (August 22, 2021)

It’s been a while

I haven’t been on to much. I miss my mom and dad everyday. I am trying to keep writing and sharing with all of you. I wrote this poem a few weeks ago and I hope you like it. I try to share from my heart.

It’s been awhile

Since I seen your smile.

Oh I wish you were here

I miss you so much

I wish I could feel your touch once again

Its so hard living with out you here

So you could give me all of your cheer

But I know it wasn’t meant to be

At least not now

But someday we will meet

Sometimes I cry

I’m trying to write again. It’s taken me some time but I’m starting too. I love sharing with you. I really needed time to heal I still am not great but at least I’m trying. This poem I wrote for my mom and dad. I love and miss them everyday. 😊💕❤️

Sometimes I cry

I miss you so much

If only I could feel your touch once again

I cry and cry

I miss everything about you i miss your smile I wish I could give you a hug if only for a moment

You left such a hole in my heart ♥️

That no one can fill like you

You were the best you always cared

For me from birth to the day you left.

Blog Reflection

I haven’t been writing to much. May 23 marks a year since my mom passed away. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long. Mother’s Day was a very hard day for me. I miss my mom so much. I guess it’s just takes time when you lose both your parents. It takes a while to get over and even though you really never get over it. I’m thankful I spent a lot of time with them and cared for them like I did. But now it just leaves such a hole in my life. Hopefully soon I can get back to writing poems and sharing my thoughts. I really needed time to process all of this. I have gone back to work. So that helps me.

I hope to continue this blog and keep sharing with you. Maybe I can help someone who is going through things that I have. That will be worth it all to me. I try to remember all the good times me and my parents shared and try to hold on and carry those with me.

I hope you will continue reading my blog so I can share with you. Grief is something we all go through there’s no beginning or end. Some days I’m fine other days I’m not. It comes and goes. I remember their voice and I miss them so much it hurts. I wish I could go back for just a minute second but I can’t do I have to go on. No matter how much it hurts. It’s painful it hurts it’s real you feel sad alone afraid and everything in between. Some days you feel guilty for not feeling sad and not feeling down because then you would know that it’s really real and it really happened and you would wake up from this nightmare. I don’t know where this is going. Maybe we can share our grief together. Maybe we can cry together because we lost someone that we love a mother, father, sister brother. Maybe we can help each other get through all of this.

I hope you all have a great day ahead. Keep pressing on. And I will do my best too. Take care.

Happy Easter

I wanted to wish you all a Happy Easter. It is the day that we celebrate Jesus coming alive again. I’m so thankful for that. This Easter is the first Easter without my mom. It just seems so different. I went to church I made a Easter dinner but still it just wasn’t the same. Two people who were in my life for so many years are gone. Who raised me from a infant. I miss them terribly. Grief is something that you carry with you forever. It never goes away. Some days you feel better then all of a sudden you have this thought in your mind of their smile their touch their voice and it overwhelms you. You try to go on but there’s such a hurt it’s hard to bare. I know it will get better in time but the Holidays are the worst. You just feel lost and you can’t find your way. My mom had dementia but I would give anything to see her again and tell her I love her. I started writing this blog when my mom had dementia and it helped to write. Now I feel it helps to share with all of you my grief in losing both of my parents. It helps to know that other people also share my pain. I hope In time I can get back to writing again. I miss it but I know I need time to heal. This Easter was different but it was good too. I know my mom and dad would want me to go on and share. That’s one thing they taught me to care. So hopefully soon I will be back and Sharing again but for now I’m still healing! But I hope you all have a Happy Easter. Enjoy every minute of

your family. And every day. 😀🌈☹️

Happy Birthday 🍰😊🌈

Next week on February 6th will be my moms birthday. This will be the first birthday I won’t be celebrating with her. This is her first birthday in heaven. My mom wound if been 80 this year. I remember last year I went to her nursing home and I brought my mom a cupcake and she ate it and that made her so happy. I brought her a balloon too and she enjoyed that too. I wish I could get that day back again. I wish I could see her smile again. I feel bad that I never captured a picture of that day because that was her last birthday here with me. I just didn’t know. I guess it’s ok but this Saturday I’m going to make a cake and celebrate my mom and her life. In memory of her and the love she had for me and everyone. Then on February 22 it will be my dads birthday. This is his second birthday in heaven. I’m going to celebrate that day too. I’m going to remember my dad and how he cared for my mom so much til the very end. Even when he was sick himself he took care of her and he loved her so much. I’m going to remember him and honor him. I miss them both so much. I struggle everyday with this . I know they would want me to be happy and live for them. Some days are good other days it’s tough. I haven’t been writing as much but I’m trying to heal from everything. There really isn’t a certain amount of time to grieve. I know it’s different for everybody.

Been a while

I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been busy working my new job and preparing for the Holidays. I can’t believe it’s been 7 months since my mom passed away. I miss her so much. It’s especially hard this year for me because this is the first year without my parents. I miss them so much and I can hardly believe it. It’s a day to day struggle but I’ve been doing fairly well. I want to continue writing my blog. I think that is what my mom and dad would want. I want to continue this journey.

I hope you will still continue to read my blog. I want to help other people who might be dealing with people with dementia and Alzheimer’s and who struggle losing their parents. So maybe I can write again and share my heart and maybe along the way help someone. I hope to write more and I hope I can share with all of you.

Happy Holidays
