Mimi, Do you remember that? “Angel of my life”, “Light of my life”? I remember you referring to me as either - out at the ranch, in the kitchen, after you’d belly laughed at any of the conversations we used to have. Conversations about anything. You’re eyes were lights as you spent time with your … Continue reading Happy Birthday Angel “of my life”.

My DD (widower of Mimi), texted me the other day to read John, chapters 19 & 20 from the Bible. Today, I read the words aloud so that Brady could also know them (though we both already have heard the words through pastors, preachers, and story books as children).

I'm so thankful, so grateful, and ever so … Continue reading 🎶 I don’t have the answers…

I don’t ask this much... but right now, I feel is a time that is appropriate to reach … Continue reading I’m Wrecked.
As my Mimi sat with her oxygen tube stretched to the kitchen table, we laughed and we had moments today that made my heart cry. I'm not for sure that my eyes have tears left.. or maybe I feel too numb to produce them. She gave my sister and I some of her special, expensive, … Continue reading What I Learned Today
