Coping With Grief.


From Bob Whiley(Sheila’s alias on FB): Grief is a process that is never truly complete on this side of life.

Get Some Hygge. It’s Good For You!

Dear Santa,


Nothing for me this Christmas, please! I’m perfectly happy where I am and have everything that I need: the lovingest of friends in a happy home, good cheer and family all around.

So romantic we felt like newlyweds again. […]

The Heartache of Being Merry (for the holidays)


This IS the season, isn’t it?  A happy time, a time of magic and wonder, a time of laughter and fond family memories.   A time of snow kissed holiday romances, of sugar-plum fairies, of unending familial feasts.   The time of torn gift wrap piled to ones knees.  A time of scents…pine sap and cinnamon aromas in the house that smell […]
