I came across this website/blog the other day. Whether you have had an experience with cancer or not, these photographs and memories still affect a certain part of the brain and stir emotions you may or may not be aware of. This family took a journey together, and I value their openness to share it. I only wish that I was able to do for my mom the same things this man did for his wife. Maybe I did in some capacity and don’t realize it. I know that our family and friends were there for my mom. Hopefully I was too.
Check out the blog and give this man your support. Maybe you will see a new side, a living side, to something you’ve experienced or have only heard about.
This is officially my first post of the new year. I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to read my blog. I now have 45 followers, only 3 of which are people I actually know. (Thank you Grandma and Grandpa!) When I started this blog I figured my family members would be the only ones reading it, but it turns out I was wrong. I am thankful for that :-) You guys make me want to take more photos and share more funny stories. A lot of my views come from Facebook and my old blog on Tumblr so thank you guys for visiting too!
I got a gift today, besides the bowl of cold oatmeal I found on my bedside table when I woke up. How did that get there? While clearing things out after the festival a friend stopped by to say hi/happy new year and handed me these:
Not only do I have a sweet new pair of sunglasses, but I have a pretty sweet new friend. Well, this is me, crazy woman, sending all my new and old friends lots of love this new year through these heart shaped sunnies.
I just want to show some fellow blogger love today. Here are the links to a few blogs that I follow when I get sick of listening to myself ramble.
Helping Turtles. A friend, Victor, has been volunteering his time in Costa Rica to save turtles. He is one of the most productive people I know and is always finding different ways to keep himself busy – cooking, arts and crafts, making nature videos. For those that are interested in travel and volunteering at different sites along the way you should definitely check out his blog! He documents his adventures at:
Prego and the Loon. This lady is amazing. I don’t know her, but I feel as though we could be friends in real life. She’s honest and not afraid to share details of her life that most people would keep to themselves. Plus, she is a great writer. It’s one thing to put something out there, but another to actually make people care about what is going on in your life without even trying. She wants to share her experiences to help others, and I’m sure that is what she is doing :-)
Break Room Stories. I can always go here for a laugh. This blog posts funny quotes said from customers to bar tenders, waiters, and others in the service industry as well as photo galleries that always make me smile. We have all been there at one point or another. We have all been left thinking WTF?! after a customer has done or said something idiotic.
