Happy 6th Birthday Matilda


In the past decade, I have had a few life changing moments.

Being disowned by  a parent,

having breast cancer,

losing a beloved canine companion.

But, with out a doubt, having granddaughter Matilda in our lives,

makes everything RIGHT…if you know what  I mean.

There is something about the continuation of life/generations

that reminds us that all of the other stuff in our lives,

 does not matter.

It does not matter at all.

So, here is to My Girl.

Today she turns 6 years old.

Thoughtful, curly headed angel…..look at her tiny feet!


This thoughtful girl is the definition of  all things good to me.

She is Love, family, Inspiration and joy

all wrapped into one sweet girl.

Happy Birthday sweet girl.

May all your dreams come true.

Love you beyond the moon.



Better Yet

On Saturday night, Larry and I went to town for dinner.

We met a wonderful couple,

The restaurant :

Pepe’s and Mito’s

Owned by good friends…it is a  favorite in Dallas.

The couple we met:

Lorie & Jeff

Lorie, is my cousin and she married Jeff about 2 years ago.

Lorie is always sweet. She is compassionate and fun.

Jeff is the perfect mate for Lorie.

We had such a good evening with them

and will see them again soon.

Isn’t it interesting about family?

There are just some of them that you adore.

Yes, Lorie is from the side of the family that disowned me.

Larry and I love this girl.

She renews our faith …..

Please, never forget,

Even when things seem very bad,

there ARE good people out there.

Better yet, we can BE one of the good ones!

Thank you Lorie for reminding us.

Love you.
