IN MEMORY OF BETH MARIE

Standard

 

It was sunny out and I sat and watched the clouds drift by in the sky. You came into my mind. Oh how I would miss you. I will miss your wisdom and humor and advice. I prayed that soon you would not be in pain.

When I started my blogging 10 years ago, you helped me in so many ways. I had no idea what I was doing. I do know that we all got pretty close and became a sort of “Family” of bloggers. This was BEFORE Facebook, so mostly we kept in touch daily from our blogs. You were my close friend…. but more like a “Sis” to me. You sent me encouragement and support when life dealt me so many hard blows. Your phone calls and gifts were so very special. I will cherish them forever.

 

This morning you left us here in this place and we grieve for the loss but do know in our hearts.. as you always said…

 

 “When you come to the edge of all that you know, you must believe one of two things: there will be earth upon which to stand, or you will be given wings to fly.” 

FLY AWAY DEAR BETH MARIE…GOD HAS GIVEN YOU YOUR WINGS….

 

 

   

 

  UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN….

First attempt at making a fake flower arrangement for outdoors.. I have changed it THREE times.. don’t know what the problem is with me .. but anyway.. had to bring it inside…weather changed and SNOW fell. I KID YOU NOT it got cold and stormy and very windy. Most everyone else took all the outdoor things inside too. Those are large shells I placed in the planter.. just can’t get enough of the beach I guess. CIMG2418CIMG2420Picked up a nice photo of Daytona Beach at sunrise for 1$. Framed and signed with date and what the photo was. Nice to know its origin. I liked the frame first BEFORE I knew what it was. Yes, it’s a little rippled in the frame so your eyes are OKAY!! ;-)

CIMG2441Poor neighbor’s garden had no idea SNOW was about to show up again. The flowers are drooping but still there. CIMG2447Snow clouds and covering the roof of the building across the way.. April 22. Last year we had temps in the 80’s!

HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.

MY younger brother DAVID  has been gone  22 years now. It seems even longer to me  than that. It seems like only yesterday that  I was living in Ca. and had not been back to Michigan in 7 years.  Jobs and money always got in the way of coming back to visit. Life happens you get busy and you lose track of what is important. On that April morning I heard a knock on my door, it was very early in the morning.  I thought that it was odd so early in the day to be awakened. It was my aunt..she had come to deliver the bad news, that my brother had died in a car accident. It was a shock to my soul. I could hardly stand up. I sat…
