The pic I uploaded to my profile is one of a day that was full of joy and happiness. I uploaded it in honor of my husband and his fight with this God awful disease. You don't know him. If you did, you would know that he fought his battle with the disease with everything he had. He did it with more grace, dignity and strength than you can imagine. Because of him, I didn't walk into fighting this blindly. I knew what to expect and gained so much from sharing his battle with him. I found gratitude where I once had so much bitterness and anger in all of the suffering and loss the disease brought into my life. I still hate the disease but it will not rob me of the joy in my life. I just wanted to honor him today and say that I will always reach for those moments of joy and happiness in every struggle I have. Praying and ho,ping that everyone here will find the strenth to do the same. Hugs, M

    Sadness and Joy

    You are picking the joy, while allowing the sadness its place, which it has, of course. 

    I hope you can still feel the warmth of his touch. 

    Thank you for sharing your inspiration with us.

    What a beautiful picture of the two of you.  Love the stories you tell about you and hubby.  He sounds like he was an amazing person.

    Sweet of You

    Thanks so much Jan! My post was genuinely done in good spirits. I was reflecting from a good place finally. Did you ever get a start on a garden?  Hoping so and hoping the painting is turning out to be a good outlet! Hugs, M

    They Broke The Mold With Him..lol

    Thank you Kim. He was such an inspiration to me and I truly posted this from a good place. I can finally pull the good out of a very difficult time. Your red dress in your other post was absolutely gorgeous!! Your dad and brother looked great as well..couldn't tell who was who. So glad you got to share that moment with your family! Hugs, M

    Meteor showers!

    Meteor showers!  What fun!  Good for you, camping out.  I haven't slept on the ground for about a decade.  I sometimes think about taking it up again, but I am not sure my aching bones would agree.  Hopefully the meteor showers will overlap with my longest-day hike.  I always start in the dark, so it would be fun!
