Thoughts for life

I am sitting here in a hotel in Arkansas.  I have been visiting my 97 year old grandmother.  As I listened to her telling stories of my childhood it brought such warm feelings to my soul and spirit.  How is it that we get so busy with life that we forget what life is about?  How is it that we do not find time to say "I love you" to those we care about?  Makes me ponder the impression that I am leaving behind.  Will my children and grandchildren have fond stories to pass down the family tree?  Will they get together "just because" and visit and share memories with one another?  As I look at this disease, I say, "This will not get me down".  I will live each day with purpose!!!  I will make the best of all situations.  I will record my thoughts and feelings more often and share those thoughts with others.  I will be an inspiration to others who are crossing my path.  Won't you join me in this endeavor?


  1. This is so cool! I just created an ebook to help others create a personal history like you're talking about here! I'm brand new on blogspot so this might not be appropriate~ but if you go to you see a place to get this free ebook! I really believe we all need to document our story yet when we're going through this dreaded disease, the time is now!

  2. You are so right. I will check it out and see. THANKS

  3. I kinda use my blog as my journal for my kids? Well that is all I have written far
