Life Is Sweet

Hello All.

It is absolutely gorgeous,

here in my beautiful ugly.

The sun is shinning,

the birdies are singing,

the flowers and trees are in bloom.

The smell of,

Apple blossom and lilacs,

fill the air.

Spring came late this year,


right now,

it is at it’s prettiest.

I am busy,

lots going on.

Been a sad time around,

my church community,

lots of illness,

and lots of people dying.

When your community is,

made up of older people,


This afternoon,

I am going to a memorial,

for a lovely man,

who was a member,

of my church.

He was a sweet, sweet man.

Bob was,

a simple,


God fearing,


I didn’t know him super well,

but, I liked him.

He loved baseball, hockey, his church,

he belonged to a bowling league,

we was generous and kind,

he had many friends.

He went quickly,

heat attack in the middle,

of the night.

You know,

I have discovered,


I don’t mind,


so much.




someone’s life,

that is,

a good thing.

I like church funerals,


that is because I like church,

but, they can be anywhere,

and we can call them,

whatever we want,

but, time must be spent,


the passing of a life.

Celebrating a life,

long and well lived,

or lamenting the loss,

of one too young,

the fickleness of life.

This weekend is my birthday,

I will be turning 57,

not a sexy number,

by any means,


I am so very happy,

life is so sweet.

Have a wonderful weekend,

you all.

May the sunshine,

kiss your skin,

and peace be with you.

Later girls,
