"Courageous care partners recharge with self-care, striving for peaceful pinnacles
in patience, persistence, and positive 
changes, knowing when to conquer and when to comfort."

To the world, you were my mother, but to me you were the world.

On this day in 1911, my mother was born and on this same date in 1937, my parents eloped. They were so in love ending when Mom died in 2000 after her ten-year journey with Alzheimer’s disease. Two people dearly in love.



“The cure for anything is saltwater – tears, sweat, or the sea.”

 Wrote Isak Dinesen in Seven Gothic Tales, 1934.

 . . . and maybe with a good up of hot coffee to have a good cry.


“Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come.
You wait and watch and work: you don't give up.”

― Anne Lamott
