We learned two important things today. First, do NOT go to a sports bar on game day. We could not hear what our waitress was saying. The food was fabulous though!
Second, do NOT go to Lowe's on a three day weekend. It was crazy busy. We really didn't need to pick up that item even though we do want to work on that project on Monday.
Hope you all have a safe Labor Day!

My book writing isn't going as fast as when we lived in Washington. But I'm okay with that. Hope my readers are.

Being home and close to family is awesome. And yet walking through some of the journeys my family is experiencing has been hard at times.
Dementia is an awful disease and to see someone we love sink deeper into it is heartbreaking. All the questions that go along with it is frustrating. I'm a Christian and have been for many decades. When it comes to this disease, I find myself asking God, Why? Why does my loved one continue to live when she has no idea who I am and hasn't known for several months. Why leave her here when she gets so frustrated and confused on a regular basis?
I feel that's selfish on my part but I'm not the only she doesn't know. I have believed over the years that we stay on Earth until our purpose has been fulfilled.
But how can someone with dementia or Alzheimers complete their course?
As she has done for many years, she continues to teach me. As I spend time with my loved one, I am learning patience, how to love unconditionally, and to live in the moment. It's not easy but some lessons aren't.
I can no longer discuss the past with her or ask questions that I would love her to answer but I can enjoy each moment we spend together--even if it goes a little sideways at times.
Today when we left she let me hug her goodbye, even though she didn't know me. This was a good day!

If you are walking this journey too, know that my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your loved ones!

My new book cover for Class of 74. Coming in November--fingers crossed!

His Senior Year Wasn’t Supposed to be Like This

Jimmie Bennett always thought his last year in high school would be fun—possibly even the best year of his life. But the death of his mother is too fresh, and only with his cousin and best friend Sandy’s help has he been able to survive the previous year.
As Jimmie muddles through each day, he suddenly discovers that a fellow student is in trouble. Neither he nor Sandy can ignore what’s happening, but what can they do? Why is Roberta being targeted? Even Roberta doesn’t know, and if they can’t figure that out, how can they stop the growing hostility?
