Thanksgiving 2017

Thanksgiving, ‚ÄčThis day in November of the year 1621, when the newly arrived Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians gathered at Plymouth to give thanks to the Almighty for their survival and a bountiful harvest. This Thanksgiving I too give thanks for my survival, the culmination of a decade of hardship, loss, sickness and death. I Watched Planes, … Continue reading Thanksgiving 2017

Turning Point

One of those memories from one year ago popped onto my Facebook today, it was a great memory of a great day, breakfast with my beloved cousin whom I hadn't seen for too many years to even count. However the good part of that day was overshadowed by the memory of the rest of the … Continue reading Turning Point

Rough Start

Wasn't sure I was going to make it out this morning... I don't know, maybe it's the damp weather, or maybe just too many hours on the loading docks this week, but when I awoke this morning it felt like a bomb had exploded inside my body. Got up, turned on the coffee pot and … Continue reading Rough Start

Fighting off … Continue reading Dog Tired

Excellent End to a Bad Day

Finally woke up enough to just get up and wake up all the way so I could go back … Continue reading Excellent End to a Bad Day

Giving Thanks for Cyber Monday

I know, Thanksgiving would have been a much more appropriate time for a blog message... but I was working on Thanksgiving Day and was kind of bummed about that and didn't really feel very thankful about it. Looking back though, it wasn't so bad... way better than last year, which was the worst Thanksgiving of … Continue reading Giving Thanks for Cyber Monday

Unsung Heroes

It was a particularly rough day in oncology today and I am utterly humbled by the dedication and compassion of the oncology nurses. The oncology doctors are great with their amazing scientific words of hope in new advancements and medical technology that they provide on their long lap through the most hopeless ward in the … Continue reading Unsung Heroes
