Happy 2013!

Happy 2013 to everyone, may it be a good year for each of you. In the new year I would like some rain, enough to bust this pesky, persistent drought. I would also like it to be a healthy and prosperous one for our kids and grand kids and well...everyone.  For me I would like to find more compassion for others and to feel grateful for all that I have and not moan about what I don't have.

December Entry

It's December and things are going along, bumpy, but okay. My little mom has a few more delusions than before but she still enjoys eating popcicle, sitting outside and feeling the sunshine on her face, and getting hugs. Not the mom who raised my brother and me but still mom. I wonder why this terrible disease has been visited on her and thousands of others but no answer to that ever comes. We just have to deal with it minute by minute. We plan to go to our sons on Christmas Day and they are good hosts so I know we'll have a nice time.
I'm posting a few pictures that Cyndi took of books that were donated to her classroom by family and some unknown donors. The Special Ed kids she teaches will enjoy them as will others who come after them. They were donated in honor of Frank's sister Liz, aka Virginia Elizabeth Carr, who was much loved by the family.
Many thanks to Cherly, Evie, and the others who donated.
