School Starts

My grandchildren started school today. Well, virtually. The token first day of school photos were taken in the house. The youngest one even wore her backpack. The oldest started his senior year of high school. As the school is still getting the schedules in order, all he had was home room and was off for […]

God’s Got It

A few months ago, my son was hurt on the seasonal job he was working for. It has been a long road for him and he has been searching for a new job. Today I was literally on my knees praying that God give him a job that would be most beneficial for him and […]

Rehab Workers

I think that it takes a special kind of person to be a therapist, nurse, CNA or any other medical worker in a rehabilitation facility. Today and every day, they are right there ready to help my dad with anything he needs or wants. They work with him patiently and lovingly, offering encouragement at every […]

New Old Skirt

About 10 years ago, I bought a skirt that I loved. I wore it often and finally the elastic gave out. I have been hanging on to it as I can’t bear to let it go. I even brought it with me when I moved years ago. Not too long ago, my mom got her […]

Cooking With my Sister

My sister came over this evening. We spent the rest of the night cooking for the celebration we will be having for my other sister and her husband’s 25th wedding anniversary. For some reason, I was keenly aware of how well we work together in the kitchen. We don’t even need to say anything to […]

Next Great Photographer

Today my parents and I went to the graduation party for my nephew’s girlfriend as she received her college degree in photography.

I was talking with a friend today about jobs. She said she goes to her office, does her work, and then goes home. She said that I am not able to do that in the job I have in caring for my parents. She went on to completely relate to my situation. It was an […]

Do Something

Sometimes I can feel overwhelmed trying to care for my parents. The daily attention that needs to be paid to trying to keep everyone safe and healthy, not to mention appointments, and issues that pop up. I often feel like there is no way I can do everything, every day. Today’s reflection from Dynamic Catholic […]

Job Well Done

As my dad was working on his genealogy, he got into boxes and piles of his old photos. Photography has always been a hobby of his, but sometimes it was more. He decided to organize some into binders. He put together all the pictures he took while he was in college that were published in […]

Playing Police

It has been super windy outside, but it calmed down enough this evening to take a decent walk. As I passed a park, I saw a police car parked in the adjacent empty parking lot. I saw the police officer out of the car and then spotted a dog running towards him. I saw K9 […]
