About Me

My photo
I am a person who loves life and loves capturing it in pictures and recording it in many ways. I have been happily married for over 40 years to my wonderful husband Mike. We have raised 4 daughters, were foster parents for 11 years and are now raising 2 of our grandchildren. They are the love of our lives and the light in our eyes. At this time in our lives, we would expect to be planning for retirement, but instead we are planning for the future of these children. Starting over so to speak. At the ripe old age of 50, I found myself as a mom of a pre-schooler again so it's the second time around for us, thus my title. We attend church and teach Sunday School. Life is never dull, as you can imagine. Enjoy the pieces of our lives and allow this grandmother some bragging rights occasionally, ok very often.

Time for Hospice

I met with the Dr this week alone since Mike was too weak to go. He has been in bed for days and not eating. The Dr suggested we call Hospice and work on "Comfort Care". In other words, make him as comfortable as possible. I am not naive enough to believe he will beat the odds and I will do everything they say for him. I still believe in God's healing power and He will heal Mike if He chooses to do so. I personally can't imagine why he wouldn't but I can't see the future like He can. Our daughters are arriving to visit as much as they can in these next few weeks. Penny is here from Africa and it's great to see her and Michael. Mike isn't talking much. He will respond when spoken to but he has always been rather quiet. It's been great hearing from long lost friends and the visits are wonderful. I just hate it's under these circumstances. There just isn't much good to report! We know many many prayers are being prayed on our behalf and we are humbled. We appreciate all the kindnesses shown to us. Little things mean so much. We love you all. Here's an oldie but a goodie of Mike & Belle.


  1. Love you sweet lady! Praying for you both!

  2. I have known mike when we were both much younger and better looking. I think the world of him and wish the best for him and your family.
    Happy Easter,

  3. So sorry this is happening to such a good man. I had the pleasure of knowing Mike through my previous job at Abra. My prayers are with Mike and your family.

  4. Mike is a very good and wonderful man. My heart and prayers go out to you all.
