I need to get some stuff done around the house really bad. But, I am going to get to the responses left..

I leave you with this quote.

"Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do."

- Pope John XIII (1881- 1963)

John's Boots...

These are his boots that sat by my bed for months and months after his accident. I put them away and he died a month later.

They comforted me..seeing them sit by the bed. A constant reminder of him.

I remember seeing him put them on in the mornings..And many times, after coming home from a long hot day at work, I would take them off for him.

I considered it an honor to take his shoes off. He would smile at me, a grateful tired smile.. and say, "How did I get so lucky?"

I would say, "I'm the lucky one."

I always felt lucky to have him..Blessed. Even through the hard times.

I am having a hard time right now because the anniversary of his accident is coming up.

I am going to get to every one's comments over the next few days. Be patient with me..I have not forgotten you, I just haven't been on the computer much.

I do appreciate everyone who has left me comments..


Tonight's song, Summer Breeze by Seals and Croft

This was one of our favorite songs..John couldn't carry a tune in a bucket, but he loved to sing. He would often ask me if I minded if he sang.

I told him I didn't mind at all.. I loved hearing him sing..

About Me

I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.

Though I am surrounded by troubles, my God will preserve me against the anger of my enemies. He will clench His fist against my angry enemies! His Power will save me. The Lord will work out His plans for my life- for His faithful love endures forever.
