I have to say that 2012 went out a lot better than it went in. I will not dwell on the hardships we faced last year but I still contend that it made us all (in a sense) stronger and brought us closer together. There were some happier times. I did get back on stage […]
Sunday morning Mom and I brought Dad home from the nursing home. We got the call early last week saying that he would be able to leave as early as Wednesday, however, with the in-and-out schedules around here Sunday was the first possible day we could make the transition easily and as smoothly as possible.
Good news all around! Dad will be home soon (within a few weeks). Wednesday, the therapist had Dad come to the house for about a half hour to see how he did in old surroundings. While still under guidance, he walked through the main floor…. though the front door; to the bedroom, the bathroom, and
This weekend was quite the adventure. Friday night, My oldest niece and I headed out for an area campsite for a weekend event that promised to be a fun-filled, faith-expanding, challenging time. As this was the first of what is sure to be an annual event, the numbers might not have been overwhelming but a
Well… it has been an interesting few weeks going back and forth to the hospital and finally getting Dad settled at the home here in town. Amazingly, he seemed to be acceptable to the idea so that with work on his part and lots of love and prayers from everyone else, he hopefully will be

In total, 17 classmates (along with their significant others… well some with their s.o) gathered at Sam’s Place. A golf outing had been arranged but those plans fell through which was fine with me (unless
This week saw the departure of two very important people in the lives of each member of my family. After only one year, Father Art Niewiadomski really made a name for himself in our community. Unfortunately for all of us in the area, he needed to downsize as he has been in less than ideal
I cannot believe how fast the little (or not so little) nephews and nieces are! From Shelby who turned 17 in March to the tiniest Kydall who is 6 months, it doesn’t seem possible that one of them is driving. Shelby still has not gotten her permit but I know some adults who have never
What a way to celebrate the blessings of the suffering and resurrection of our Savior! The three day cycle is truly the most powerful, and beautiful time of the liturgical year. This year seemed even more somber as my hometown community lost a true friend during the week. I was truly shocked when I read
