Refreshment of the Storm

Last night was an amazing light show from the heavens!!!  Ever since I was about 12 years old I have loved the power and beauty of a thunder and lighting storm.  Probably my favourite one was during a trip to Saskatchewan in the early 90’s in North Battleford. It followed us for many miles, I…

Our Motorcycle Accident – One Year

There are many kinds of anniversaries aren’t there?   Anniversaries from our meeting our best friend, engagements, marriages… I love all those ones.  I never thought I would face an anniversary with such mixed emotions as I do the 1st year anniversary of our motorcycle accident.   June 24, 2017 our lives changed forever in…

And now… From a Daughters heart.

I have been pretty quiet on here the last couple of weeks, there has been a lot going on.  We have settled our girl at home, my brother in law continues in his battle through the cancer that challenges him, my Mom has had a stroke and… well… my head, heart and faith has been…

Still confidence

In everyday we are given an flood gate of choices from what toothpaste to use to , well, you get the point… choices are endless   Then, there are the things we get no choice over, for instance… our body response to a crisis that no one can see coming until it’s here.  A stroke….

My Tribute to a Friend – Paul

Have you ever been to the Rancher’s Restaurant here in Chilliwack?   If not, then take a stop by there for lunch sometime and see the amazing amount of beautiful Geodes.   They are the rocks that have beauty hidden within that can only been seen when time taken to crack the seemingly plain rock…

A Mother’s Heart – “We are Home now”!

Monday started out as a very stressful morning, at least on the inside.   I was having to contain myself with nervousness & excitement as I helped my granddaughters get ready for school.  Inside I was shaking, praying and apprehensive as to what the day would hold.  The girls had no idea that at that…

My Daughter – Mother’s Day 2018

Here we are on the quiet hours of yet another Mothers Day.  My Mom has always been my hero.  She is smart, tender, sweet and was tough as nails when need be as kids.  She has counselled me, prayed for me, helped me learn my way around the kitchen and the garden.  She has been…

A Mother’s Heart – Weeds, May Ponderings

“April showers bring May flowers”  The gardens are all one by one coming to life, the work in the garden prior to our accident in June and for years prior shows true in what comes back every year.   Darwin has been caring for the yard alone since October and as always is my knight…

Stairs, Strangers & Elevators

I have spent a lot of time waiting for elevators and riding them over the past while.    The stairs at times are quicker if the waits are long, but they are not nearly as interesting as taking the elevator.  I have had some interesting elevator mates. Some people get on the elevator and have…

Mother’s Heart: Feeling with no name (ponderings)

I sit and watch the goings on at the street level below the 10thfloor.  One of the things that I like to see on a rainy day is the many umbrellas that come out.   The morning might have started off sunny, but then the rain showers come and the umbrellas come out.  I love all…
