When Your Favorite BBQ Is No More

There are two types of people in the world. One type like JoAnne and I LOVE smoked meats. Oh my goodness how we both love pork barbecue.

Mental Illness Sucks The Joy Out

Sucks the joy out of what? EVERYthing. Once, before my husband was medicated and in therapy, I told him that he sucked the joy out of our holidays and special days.

Special Day With Grammom

Grandmothers can be magic. I had a fantastic relationship with my maternal grandmother. Turns out she was a “step”grandmother but I never knew that until way after she passed away. She is the reason I am relatively sane. I know how to love because of her. I know what it is to be loved becauseContinue reading “Special Day With Grammom”
