Happy Wednesday folks.

I hope everyone is healthy and happy today.

I'm taking baby steps, getting back to "normal" after a long and tiring weekend.

So much to tell and I'm not really in the mood but I know you all want to know how my dad is doing.

The short of it: he's doing well. He's scheduled for two to three weeks in a rehab facility and then home.

His going "home" is what concerns me. That's where his stressors are. If you're a regular reader here, you understand why. I won't rehash any of the reasons but I ask that you all continue the prayers, positive thoughts, and healing energy for this situation.

Despite his failing health my daddy still has a strong will and I believe it's one reason he's still amongst the living, as he would say. I'm thankful to have him for as long as he wants to be here.

Daddy and I on Monday:

On other fronts, we celebrated Baby Bliss's birthday a few weeks ago with dinner at one of her favorite local venues. It was a very small but lively group. Lots of food and fun.

Me, en route to Baby Bliss's dinner:




I also went to a birthday party Saturday evening for my other mom. The party was a blast! I saw folks I hadn't seen in years and met new people who I hope will become friends.

The food was excellent, as were the DJ, the songstress, and the bartender.

I'm sure it will be a while before I attend another event like that so I'm glad it turned out as well as it did. 

Well folks, the paramour is on his way. We're having a heart-to-heart talk tonight. ๐Ÿ’•

Sweet dreams everyone.

Everyone,

My faith is being tested and I feel like I'm making a slow-motion fall into the abyss.

I learned late this afternoon that my dad had a stroke Friday and is back in hospital. After his recent heart attack, I am beyond worried.

Shortly after I woke up Friday I felt there was something wrong but I was unable to reach my dad. Today his aide returned my frantic call and confirmed my worries.

I have been anxious and fretful from the time I found out. I can't get to him until tomorrow morning and the weather forecast is for rain.

Once again I am asking you all to please send positive energy, healing thoughts, and prayers. Not only for my father but for me as well.

Thank you all in advance.

Good morning and Happy Sunday y'all! ๐Ÿ˜Š

I hope everyone is somewhere safe and hopefully peaceful as well.

Today I am tired, tired, tired but for good reason.

The past two weeks have been filled with celebration, which I'm always thankful for. The hard work leading up to the fรชte, not so much.

When we hit a milestone of joy, a celebration is a way of showing gratitude. However that gratitude is often preceded by sacrifice or struggle, yes?

Persevering through 22 hours of labor to give birth to a long-awaited miracle baby, surviving a natural disaster, living to see another birthday, the first 30 days of sobriety...  ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜Œ

Whatever the reason, I think celebrations big or small are good reminders that we are alive.

There's more but I'll fill in the details later people. I'm off to either snooze for another hour (Did I mention how tired I am? ๐Ÿ˜‚) or I'm getting up to prepare for part two of yesterday's soirรฉe.

Either way, I am thankful for it all.

Ciao for now folks!
