Monday is therapy day

Thanks to all those who have continued to leave encouraging comments and send emails. Today is a good day with therapy at 3 pm today. I am hoping to keep it contained, but emotions spill out throughout the week and realizations of the reality of situations long past. So, I am hoping for direction, hope, light, and recognition. That's a lot to hope for, but I'm optimistic.

Had a note this morning that a best friend and running buddy from about 25 years ago has died. Sad. We had lost contact, but I had heard that she was happy. I hope she heard the same about me. She was a delightful sprite who brought much sunlight and laughter into my life.

One day we were cleaning my apartment in preparation for a party that night. She suddenly realized that she was cleaning with only one hand; the other arm was full of my beloved poodle Sarge - we called him a sack of potatoes. He would just drape himself around your arm, in your lap, on your shoulder, and, often as with Ginni, you'd never know he was there. Sarge loved us all and so did Ginni. May light perpetual shine upon her. I'll try to find a picture of her as the sprite I knew.

I'm sorry about your friend Ginni. She's making the angels laugh now. :)

Our basset's AKC name is Sylvan Bruno Bag-O-Beans. We know all about the sack of potatoes/beans!

Hey, girl, I've found her obituary online in 3 papers - Columbus, Memphis & Jackson. But, no paid obituary or guest book. I was kinda hoping for a guest book, ya know? Oh, and I found 3 pictures, 2 while we were doing FALLEN ANGELS & one around the time of either PIPPIN or OLIVER! One is great. Did you ever know that she had dated someone I dated? Well, someone I almost married, the only guy I almost married. Hugs to your lady & her death 'in the family' so to speak. - Donna

A lovely photo. May she rest in peace and rise in glory, and may you be comforted by surrounding love and wonderful memories.

Ya know, I was thinking about it & I'm not sure I would have ever converted to Episcopal if not for conversations Ginni & I had. - Donna
