It's been awhile, but this is strange.

Okay, so it's been awhile since I posted. Most days for me are the same. There's very little variance, ya know? I'm either at work or I'm working at home. But...yesterday's dinner for Momma was totally bizarre. She thinks up this stuff that she "feels" will be really good and most of the time it just grosses me out. I really don't care so long as she is eating something though. I had asked Fred to go pick up stuff for Chicken Gumbo Burgers for dinner and he did Anyway, when I got home, I told Momma what I had planned and she didn't want any of it. She explained that her stomach didn't feel like something heavy so she just wanted soup. Okay, here's the strange part. She wanted tomatoe soup with chopped up fried cabbage from Sunday dinner put in it. Ewwwwwwwwwwwww! That's just kind of weird I think. Also, why doesn't she think that the cabbage won't upset her stomach?!?! Hello??? GAS??!?!?! Anyway, I fixed it and she ate it and she thought it was super delicious! Whatever...

Messages from a funeral home page

Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all.

So huge, so hopeless to conceive as these that twice befell. Parting is all we know of heaven, and all we need of Hell.

There is no Death! What seems so is transition. This life of mortal breath is but a suburb of the life Elysian, whose portal we call Death.

Such songs have power to quiet the restless pulse of care, and come like the benediction that follows after prayer.

Music, when soft voices die, vibrates in the memory -- Odours, when sweet violets sicken, live within the sense they quicken.

A trip to a much better place

Our friend Paul lost his Mother last night. She had been fighting an uphill battle with all sorts of cancer and it finally overtook her. She's at peace now with her Lord...may God rest her soul and give her eternal peace. We love you Jo and will miss you.

A truly pleasant and relaxing day!

Yesterday was all that. I had a fabulous day at work on my new job and last night Carole and I enjoyed a very fun and relaxing night at Kami's. She hosted a Premier Jewelry Show. We got to peruse some very nice and absolutely fun jewelry. I also got to spend time with some of the women in her "Mom's Group" as well. All are very nice girls. We had lots of fun in a very welcoming atmosphere. I love the necklace that I bought and will totally enjoy wearing it. I want to thank Kami for her hospitality and for inviting me to share in a really fun time. Thanks again!
