This is my second attempt at participating in “A Chronic Voice’s” Link-up Party. This month’s prompts are: Remembering Caring Entertaining Designing Believing Remembering This one can be a touchy subject for me. My memory and thought processes are fading and slowing down.

I get “breaking news” clips on my computer and phone. Much of the time I just ignore it but today my Hubby said I should take a look. It stated that Margot Kidder had died. Now I have long been a fan of her acting, especially opposite Christopher Reeve’s Superman as Lois Lane. They say …

Chronic illness can lead to a whole world of compromise. That is why I have started this series – to show compromises I have had to make and hope they can be helpful for others. A few weeks ago Hubby and I were in the mood for some junk food and couldn’t decide what we …

One of my least favourite days is fast approaching – Mother’s Day. Even though I have come to terms with the relationship I had with my mother and the fact I never became one, it is still hard watching other women getting honoured by their families. I have so many “adopted” kids who give me …

Last week the lovely Helen of This Thing Called Life One Word At A Time picked “Angels” for the lyric prompt so it was only fitting that she pick “Devils/Demons” for this week. And I am a day late, but still wanted to get my pick in here. In the early 1970’s I was in my …
