ready or not




I've joined a local meetup for aspiring writers and there's an assignment for the next meeting, which is the day before Valentines day. The assignment is a love story.





This was taken maybe a month after we first met.
My boyfriend at the time kept popping into the living room and snapping pictures with my camera.  I wonder if he understood that he was seeing the future.

Jimmy and I were gone from there before the pictures were developed.

my rock



I could spend too much time looking at pictures of the way we were, way back when all we could think about was either last night or the one that was coming up.

Right now I need this guy - the strong, kind, in-charge guy who knew how to keep things in perspective and got things done.

I'm feeling a little rudderless today, but this face anchors me, gives me hope that I have what it takes.

My card for today, pulled just now, the King of Wands. Of course.

his posse




Can you tell how much he loved being a Dad?

I was going to write a long piece about how good he was at it, but anyone who knew Jim, knew our family, also knew how devoted he was to his boys ; how proud he was of the decent young men they have grown to be.

And now, all that love and pride will be carried forward when Jake and Missy welcome our first grand child into the world come August.
