Another Day To Don the Wy Wings

It is now the early hours of the morning and I just listened to an inspiring speaker say that “We all have and will have our ups and downs.” I just got in the bed to practice falling asleep and discovered it was not the time or place. I moved to my blog that is dedicated to my GirlMic Leslie. The butterflies carry some of the names who are prayer intercessors and I said I would count them as others count sheep. I have set a 03::00 goal to go again to bed but I thought it would be a good time to count the people who are helping me get through another day. I decided to double my words of thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ for the opportunity of another day to don my wings.

The definition I have chosen is, “ruminate is Figurative. to think or ponder; meditate; reflect.” Today I experienced a muted moment of prayer as I listened to a group of prayer warriors give praise reports and prayer requests. I have chosen to make this observation in response to the prompt: ruminate. I am working to […]

A January Joy And A Grace Connection

On New Year’s eve, our Church had a “Ceremony of Remembrance and Healing.” I do not feel like I was completely able to participate  because I was not feeling well. I chose this as my first 2017 writing because I see many things written about the joy and grace connection of remembering. I thought it might help others if they felt the grief of not having someone present. I am remembering my GirlMic Leslie as I light my candles and speak about her love for family. “Praise the LORD O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.”

Another Mother’s Mourning

In my quest to write today as I prepare to attend another daughter’s transition and comfort another mother, I pause to honor the love of a mother. It has been a year and 24 days since my #GirlMic took flight and it was another sleepless night as I imagined the pain of this mother preparing for her final earth goodbyes. This week has been an up and down travel week as I put prayer in place for those who hurt. I joined the “Legacy Connection”  as I continue to pursue wisdom. We are all in position and a place of grace.

It Is Your Birthday Forever

I have just returned from a private day party where my children, SonD, GalVal, grand girlP and great grandgirl KEB and I sent balloons into the air as we celebrated the Date of Birth of my daughter Leslie. I remember not going last year when it had only been 12 days but seeing that my sonD had gone and placed a balloon and took pictures. We decided this would be an annual reflection and memories event It as amazing to see  my family smile and remember her. I wanted to put this birth day in pictures and prose as we remembered.

To My GirlMic Leslie for A Memory

I took another walk around my two gardens with the camera to see how things were progressing and decided to make my buddleia the stars of the show again. This blue one is growing in my back garden. The bush is now quite tall and I am now cutting the flower heads off that have […]

WWOW: GirlMic, I am remembering your smile as I gaze on this beautiful purple flower. I want all of my friends of #purplepurpose to think of you when they see it. Thanks to COAAS.

WWOW: My GirlMic Leslie’s Memorial

We visited Elmwood Cemetery to laugh, cry and soothe our souls with My Girl Mic Leslie sweet memories. I want my writing to be as bold as she was in life. I thank the Lord for my children who worked very hard to make my May Month Birth celebration a sweet memory. It was my best party ever and the fellowship was unbelievable. I thought about all the stories we take to the cemetery with every visit. It is important to me that I write about her even when it seems I am dwelling on the memories.
