thoughts for today

I love words. Specifically the written word when it describes something so precisely. Enough so that it reaches deep inside to your heart and soul.  I wonder if there is a word for that.... when the description is so beautiful and perfect. Poignant is close.

This one did it for me today. Yes, I will always miss you Edd..... Has it really been four years since you went away? You were so easy to love.... 

This next photo made me feel as though my own mom was speaking to me. I think she would want me to be happy and love life... to be brave and not worry... something she always tried to help me with her entire life. It's hard to be without her physical presence, but her words and spirt still speak to me every day. 

Those we spend time with matter SO much. They either add positive reinforcements in this life or make life more difficult... Oh, how thankful I am for those bright lights in my life... and I hope I can be the same for others.

Even so the heart misses what it has loved deeply... and sometimes mine feels so empty... and yearning....

But I am so grateful for all I have learned, all I have, and the life that is mine!


  1. Gosh, Kathi...I can't believe it's been FOUR years, either. I remember I "met" you through blogging during the time Edd was sick. You have always been so brave and loving, and continue to live your life with grace. I love the quote: "Missing you comes in waves. Tonight I'm drowning." So powerful!

  2. This post got to me...made me emotional. Made me think of many important people in my life - especially my grandparents, who I miss every day :) thank you for writing something to beautiful.
