Not long ago, I had the joy of sharing a hospital room with a very special woman for two weeks. Irene, at 92, was a spitfire when she was lucid, as endearing as a 2-year-old when she was not. She was afraid of the world at night and I would pull up a chair just to hold her hand through the dark hours to assure her that all was well. Her response… Read More

The Beloved Desk When I was a very young girl, my family had moved to a new city and we got an apartment from two lovely elderly sisters that resonated with kindness. One of the treasures that they gave us was a wooden desk with a drop table. When I was young, my mom used it as a storage area for many things from safety pins to bits of paper, bills, forgotten… Read More

I would even go as far as to say that we should ALL be able to afford a hired cook. I actually enjoy cooking once I put my mind to it. it is not the… Read More

Me.. March 2 – 17th, 2009 From Sad to Sadder; Glad to Gladder  Rheumatoid Arthritis moved into my life about eighteen months ago. This really has been a very sad and challenging thing to deal with on many levels, the worst of which has been emotionally. I had been diagnosed with Lupus at first in 1994 for a mild bout but then had a more moderate flare-up that lasted from 2003 to… Read More

For those that may have already read the previous post, I thought that I should perhaps shed some light on why I had chosen to share something so personal in explaining some of the challenges I am going through when indeed I was actually quite uncomfortable doing so.  As I say below, I truly hesitated to so, even feeling embarrassed at some of the issues that are more challenging to me right… Read More
