Vibrant!
Published on Thursday, May 12, 2016 by I haven't been able to post anything for a few weeks because of blog troubles.  Now that everything is ironed out, I am going to go ahead and put up my April Photo Challenge shots.  The theme was Vibrant.  I am so glad I am able to post again!  I laughingly call this "Self Portrait." 2.  This is a koi in the Japanese Garden at Maymont.  3.  If yo...
Once a Mom, Always a Mom!
Published on Sunday, April 17, 2016 by This weekend I was honored to be the guest of my new dear friend Amy Roberts once again. Amy took my daughter and me to The Maymont in Richmond. I don’t believe I have ever visited such a dynamic and unique park! I have some amazing photos I will be sharing over the next post or two. But today I think I will start with my favorite surprise picture. The Japanese Ga...
THREE
Published on Thursday, March 31, 2016 by This month's photo challenge subject is three.  There is so much open interpretation to "three."  I can't wait to see what everyone came up with! My old neighbor began brewing beer shortly before he moved to California.  When he found out his friend was driving to Virginia he sent three home brews across country to me.  The award winning pumpkin beer was amazing....
It Was Only A Matter Of Time
Published on Sunday, March 20, 2016 by I knew it would happen. During what my son calls his “heart shenanigans” I had to stay too strong to allow myself anything but a few tears. When I am on Mom duty I am rock solid, saving the melting down for later. It was only a matter of time. It happened in a hospital where I came face to face with an intubated young man whose mother was desperately holding his ...
Hampton Roads Tattoo Arts Festival
Published on Monday, March 7, 2016 by Last week I asked my daughter if she wanted to go to the Hampton Roads Tattoo Arts Festival. I had never been but heard good things about it. I am not one to go to public events, but a tattoo show? At least it wouldn’t be boring! My daughter was messaging a friend the morning we were going. Her friend wrote, “I’m drinking a mug of hot chocolate and watching Spo...
Leap!
Published on Monday, February 29, 2016 by I didn't take a single picture for this month's photo challenge until this past weekend.  Why?  Because the theme was so hard.... LEAP! When the idea finally hit me, all my pictures fell in to place.  With the help of some extraordinary girls, that is. I took my first picture on the property of my gym.  This metal man sculpture looks like he took a flying leap....
It Was a Very Good Week
Published on Tuesday, February 16, 2016 by “But is an anomalous right coronary artery hereditary?” “Could my other children have an anomalous RCA?” “What do you know about anomalous right coronary arteries running in the family?” I was beginning to sound like a broken record. Yet no one had an answer for me. Between the surgeons, the cardiologists, the nurses, the pediatricians, the people in ge...
Photo Challenge: Inside!
Published on Sunday, January 31, 2016 by This photo challenge "Inside" was one of my first steps at living a "real life" again after our horrible December.  I was happy to take out my camera once more and look forward to seeing what everyone else has posted! Today my daughter and I took her friend on a hiking adventure.  I brought my camera so I could take pictures for the challenge.  My daughter's...
Our Weeping Pyro Pet
Published on Sunday, January 24, 2016 by My daughter had a few friends she wanted to send presents to this Christmas. I told her to pick some things out and put them in my Amazon cart. When I looked at what she chose I was intrigued. “Honey, where did you find such a neat thing?” She had picked out candles called “Pyro Pets.” They are geometric candles shaped like different animals, each containing...
What’s On Your Cell Phone?
Published on Sunday, January 17, 2016 by I'm still at a point where writing just won't work for me yet.  My brain is trying to catch up with the real world world since my son's surgery.  In trying to decide on a post, I scrolled through my cell phone pictures for ideas.  "What have I been up to?  What can I write about?"  Well, there is nothing better than a picture to tell a story, right?  Here are th...
We Will Move Forward
Published on Sunday, January 3, 2016 by This is a screen shot of a picture I shared on Facebook today.  I don't think I have ever seen a picture that hit home so profoundly.  Above the picture I wrote, "When David was at his worst and I didn't know if he was going to make it, I held on to his hand with everything I had.  If I had to get up for a second I made my Mom or Elizabeth hold his hand.  I had th...
Before… and After
Published on Thursday, December 17, 2015 by I need to make this post brief. If I begin writing all the details of my last two weeks I believe my eventual meltdown will quickly ensue. And it isn’t quite time for that. On December 5 at 4:00 a.m. I was woken up in Corolla by a police officer knocking at my door. My 22-year-old healthy son had collapsed, was in the emergency room and I had to return home immed...
