Life as it is.














Floors that need sweeping, dishes need washing, laundry needs to doing, home needs cleaning.  All in preparation for loved ones that need loving.  I'll be away from this space for a few days as we travel to celebrate the life of a dear Uncle, who bravely fought brain cancer for four years and went to his peaceful reward yesterday.

I'll be back soon with so many great things to share and many new readers to share with.  Thank you all for being here.

“Death opens a door out of a little, dark room (that's all the life we have known before it) into a great, real place where the true sun shines and we shall meet.”  

- C.S. Lewis

 

“End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it.”

- J.R.R. Tolkien


“At the hour of death when we come face-to-face with God, we are going to be judged on love; not how much we have done, but how much love we put into the doing.”

- Bl. Mother Teresa

    Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter.

    May all the souls of the faithful departed, by the mercy of God, rest in peace.

    1. Thank you and good to know I'm not the only one with a pile of stuff that I've needed to sort thru since Christmas slowly blocking a stairway, 3 day old jelly spills on the counter and at least one peice of pepperoni on the floor from Tuesday (I couldn't bring myself to post and fess up to that one earlier!)
