  1. Very sorry for your loss. It is a truly awful equation, the pain we feel at the loss of their unconditional love is directly proportional to the good they have added to our lives.

  3. Oh, how terrifying. I am so sorry!
    I remember the time a dog (not a pitbull) attacked our dog when I was walking him on a leash. It was scary. Neither our dog nor the dog who attacked were breeds known for attacking humans or other animals.
    I am glad you have the protective gear you need at work and that there are COVID-19 patients able to return home.

Six Sentence Story: Green Coat

He tore my green, soft, favorite coat, the one I wore so much. I felt I was not the one he wanted me to be, not anymore.  All good things must come to an end, or should it be just the bad? Clutching my torn coat and shutting the door in front of him, tears shed from my burning eyes. I said goodbye. It is his loss, not mine.

Overdue Gratitude

Hello, hello. I am here after two months. I have been meaning to write my gratitude but did not get myself to sit down and actually type and post it. My daughter turned 21, an adult but still young at heart and spirit. She is my forever baby and youngest and smallest.  We celebrated 2020 style, just me and her in Estes. We stayed in a condo with a nice view. The place was by the stream and the water was not all frozen yet. We could hear the water flowing with its relaxing nature sound. We walked outdoors in with the cold breeze. Surprise, surprise, we were the only ones outdoors. The masks, I must admit, felt good to wear as our breath, at least, bouncing back on our face felt warm. Paul and I celebrated our two-months anniversary in a neighboring state and ordered takes-outs. We hang out (in?) ate, drank, and talked. The drive was beautiful passing by packs of rams unsuspecting of the cars passing by. We finally got our professional wedding (and video) shots. They are all beautiful in

Strength

It is cool outside but sunny. It's pretty much the same all week--nice enough to go out but too cold to spend a long time outdoors. I met up with a friend for a quick lunch at the mall. We walked around and looked at home stuff. She bought a block of knives for her new apartment with her husband. I did like a lot of stuff but decided not to buy any. It took a lot of will-power but I succeeded to control myself. I mean, I do not really need a set of cutting board with pictures of animals (cow, chicken, pig) telling me what kinds of cut each portion is, nor I do need a special cutter for loose leaf salads, a small, red, heart-shaped dutch oven, a Monday through Sunday printed mugs, etc. I mean, maybe I should not use a Monday mug if it is Saturday but early pre-coffee morning is not a time I can make intelligent decisions. They were all so cute though. My friend did recommend an Asian grocery store close to her area. She is not Asian but I am. How could I not have gone to this
