Quirky, fun, happy!

Delicious food!

Lori & Sons

This is one of my favorite photos.

I am flanked by my two sons.

I used to call them my “boys”

They are men now.  So, they are my sons.

As any mother would attest, they are still my boys.

I do look to them for advice and help.

I enjoy our adult conversations.

I can’t help but give advice even if unsolicited.  I am their Mom!

They are both fathers now.

I am proud of them.

I know that their Dad would be proud of them too.

They are kind, caring, responsible young men.

Fatherhood is a noble and demanding undertaking.

Happy Father’s Day to my sons.

Happy Father’s Day to all fathers regardless of age.

 

Orion’s Gift (again)

Now, adjusting  to the new normal,* I am finding my way back to some of my pleasures such as reading.

Reading at the end of the day is my “happy hour”. Continue reading “Orion’s Gift (again)”

Regardless of the weather, walking refreshes and restores me. Continue reading “Just Walkin’”

Day 10

I woke early to the sound of pouring rain.

I lay in bed for awhile enjoying the sound.

It was lovely, cool and dark.

Day 9

A beautiful day dawns in Portland, Oregon.

Ginny and I went for a walk.

Then we sat on the patio enjoying the cool morning air.

Our hearts and minds were at MD Anderson. Continue reading “Day 9”

Tomorrow is a big day for Mabel.

Fingers crossed for success for her Mom’s treatment.
