Life on an 1857 Farm in Wisconsin.
Friday, October 23, 2015
We welcome Daisy Grace into our family & farmhouse.
Lucy Lily has accepted her from the moment she arrived last night.
They have played & played. Now there is sweet sleep.
Our thanks to the Eau Claire Humane Society.
My heart is mending...
Thursday, October 1, 2015
I imagine that for the rest of my days upon this earth, I will start October
with reflection. I will gently tap friends upon the shoulder with a reminder
that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer...and remind them,
further, that early detection matters. With a tear and a smile I will blow out
two candles on my "re-birthday cake" and remember that all clear call
from my surgeon on October 18, 2013.
With some authority - I will strongly state that
no one loses a battle to cancer. There are many who face a briefer
journey -- but I am certain they were the bravest of us all.
So please say a gentle prayer for those brave & courageous
souls that walk through the valley & fear no evil. And if you
will, make a wish for a cure.
