It’s Sunday ! Time to kick back, relax, and wish a HAPPYBIRTHDAY to those in heaven.
Losing a loved one…nothing is harder.
I just got together with a friend who lost her dog that she had for 15 1/2 years. I often hear from people that they know I will understand. It’s sad that not everyone can understand how a pet is family and losing them can be as devastating as the loss of a human.
This coming Tuesday is my sister’s birthday. It will be her second birthday in heaven. She would have been 55 years old. I still have to pinch myself and ask if she is really gone. But instead of feeling overwhelmed by sadness, I am going to celebrate her.
The image I made below is for all of us celebrating a loved ones (human and animal) birthday in heaven.

Even when it’s not someone you personally know, but the loss of a super star, it can be devastating. The following are pictures I took when I visited Paisley Park after Prince passed away last year (April 21st, 2017). It was so much more sparse than what it had been when the news first got out that he was gone. By the time I went most of it had blown away, the flowers had died, and so on. Continue reading →
Today is my birthday so I thought I would do a little bit different kind of tale, a tale about me. This will be my first “Tuesday Tale” about a human. But hey, as I always say, we humans and animals are all living, feeling beings…so why not?!
At church this past Sunday, the sermon was about fear. In this sermon and the one before the topic of being frozen in life was spoken about. When you’re fearful, you become frozen. They go hand in hand.
What does this have to do with me? Well, here I am another year older and I have been thinking a lot about my life, especially the last few years. Continue reading →
