2015 has arrived!

Not what I was expecting to be doing when the New Year started.

Mom passed away on Dec. 30, 2014 after 6 month battle with cancer.

Yep! That “C” word hit the family again, we’ve lost too many family members to Cancer.

Veterans Day again!

Another Veterans Day is upon us, this is the third one since we lost Rudy. Don’t know where the days, weeks, months and years go?

Always been so proud of his service to our country and wish the younger generations would do the same.

There comes a point in your life when you realize:

Who matters,
Who never did,
Who won’t anymore…
And who always will.
So, don’t worry about people from your past,
there’s a reason why they didn’t make it to your future.

(This has alot of meaning in my life right now!)

You never know ahead of time what way life will lead you. But here I find myself a caregiver again so soon!

Another Year Upon Us!

2014 started not quite the way I expected, but when does life go as planned?

Weather’s been crazy this winter and the wind never seems to stop!

Missing Rudy and not feeling well do not mix either. But as my motto says “Life Goes On . . . One Day at a Time!”

Feeling alone, sad, sick, stressed . . . . . this is my life!

Missing Rudy!

We placed items at his marker to honor his memory.

Rudy loved golf and was a Scrooge at Christmas.

In Memory of Rudy, I made this for him and placed it at his grave yesterday, It’s so hard to believe it’s been 2 years already. Where does time go? I have no clue. Miss him every day and there’s always some thing I need him for. So hard living with your husband for 40+ years and then all of a sudden he’s gone.

Another year is ending!

Where do the days, weeks and months go? I have no clue.

We’re almost at 2 years without Rudy and I miss him so very much. Life is so different without him that’s for sure! Our family unit has gotten smaller and extended family is very distant.

I’ve decided I needed to finally get out of the house a little, so I’m volunteering at Kadlec Medical Center, Richland,WA in the Cancer Resource Center. Helps me feel good to be able to help others traveling on a cancer journey. I mainly do the office work and have made some new friends. It’s really different for me being outside for home.

Holidays are hard for me, even though Rudy was our family’s Scrooge. Miss him wearing his “Bah Humbug” hat each year, so I hang his stocking with his hat over the peg also.

He used to build things in his shop for me and had many plans of doing more when he retired, but that never got to happen.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!
