Miss you Dad

ShareTweet “Oh, when we are journeying through the murky night and the dark woods of affliction and sorrow, it is something to find here and there a spray broken, or a leafy stem bent down with the tread of His foot and the brush of His hand as He passed; and to remember that the path He trod He has hallowed, and thus to find lingering fragrance and hidden strength in the remembrance of Him as “in all points tempted like as we are,” bearing grief for us, bearing grief with us, bearing grief like us.”  ~ Alexander MacLaren Read more: I’ve decided since I can’t walk the ALS walks, this month.. I’m going to go sit at the cemetery for a while, instead.  I want to keep May private for my … Read entire article »

Friday Five – Top Evernote Links – Top Twitter Favorites

ShareTweet My Top Five Evernote Links this week: Chris Brogan takes on Social Media Etiquette. This is a great post that anyone interested in Social Media should read. Marelisa shares 32 Small Ways to Change the World.  My favorite is number 29.  Seed pills excite me, too! Heatlh Impact New Daily has shared an interesting post about Saturate Fats, Cholesterol in the brain, relating Alzheimers, Parkinsons, and ALS, in the name of Coconut Oil. I don’t know how much of this is marketing for coconut oil.  But I found the article fascinating. Margie Clayman shared 1 month, 30 blogging action items. Erica Says has a great post to teach the difference between categories and tags.

Florida Travel Check in.. ALS Walk Jax is April 2nd

ShareTweet Hello from Jacksonville. I made it to Florida Drupal Camp, Saturday, in Winter Park.  Other than that, we’ve had some very uneventful weeks out of town. I’ve been healing well from the fall. Just have a few problems with my left arm. The bruises on my knee have almost all gone away. My hand and wrist seem to cramp when I drive. It reminds me I’m doing too much with it and I slow down use of it. I didn’t get a chance, this trip to see my friends in Jacksonville. I’ll be back for the ALS Walk, in April.  I’ll send them invites to join the walk with me.  Maybe that will get me to see them.  The walk, here, is only two miles and starts at Tinsel Town. I had hoped to … Read entire article »

ALS is a fungus?? This Oncologist thinks so..

ShareTweet A couple of things are on my mind. One, I’ve lost all my ALS research when that blog crashed. Two, I was just in the Cancer Center, having an iron infusion, surrounded by people having chemotherapy. I remembered these videos. You need to hear what the doctor has to say. This amazes me because you can’t make any pharmaceutical money with baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) but here he says he’s, personally, seen it cure. Just listen to what he says.. its worth your time. This could save lives. … Read entire article »

My old Stomping Grounds. Where I grew up. (Repost)

ShareTweet I got this cute email, last week, about “If you were a girl in the 70’s,” much like this one, here. The big surprise was that it was from Susan Bebb. Susan? I didn’t know Susan had my email address. I haven’t talked to her in years, and we haven’t communicated since she cleverly sent me a calendar, of Hawaii, as a creative wedding announcement. I am reposting this, for her. Special thanks to Ted for Bloggin’ this to the masses. I had so much fun that I mapped out a story for you. I played with Google Earth and found my old neighborhood.. my stompin’ grounds for so many years. My grandma’s house! I highlighted some points of interest ~LOL~ We called Veronica “Ronnie”. Susan was only … Read entire article »

I have had many dad’s in this lifetime.

ShareTweet “Dad” is a very special word, to me. I met my biological dad when I was 18. Michael. We buried him last year. I spent quite a bit of my young childhood with a step-father, I called, “daddy.” Kenny. In my youth, I had my grandfather and a special proxy dad, for father/daughter activities, camp-outs, or dances. Phil Allison I have had two fathers-in-law that I referred to or called “dad,” too. Mel and Bryan. My mom had some special boyfriend’s, in her world, that treated me like a dad. Jimmy and Wayne. I have a current step-dad, that treats me like a dad. Ernie And, just recently, thanks to Google, I’m in touch with a man who helped to raise me from when I was a baby until I was a toddler. I consider … Read entire article »

I’m always gonna wanna make it move..

ShareTweet When one loses a parent, life seems to go into an unrecognizable mode, for a while.  Some days you don’t know if you’ll ever feel 1/2 normal again.  It has taken me just over a year to be able to function, at full capacity, again. Amazingly, in that year, I’m not sure how I accomplished anything.  I did do the best thing I could do, for myself.  I went back to the pyschiatrist.  It was my chance to just focus on me and work on climbing back into the world I once could run through. I will always be saddened, that my dad chose to hide his illness from me.  I will always feel that I lost my chance to really show him that I could be a successful daughter.  All I … Read entire article »
