In the past six years since Leo's death (suicide) my life has changed but in many ways it has stayed the same. I am still single, still live close to my daughter and three beautiful and smart granddaughters and I have a great job which I enjoy very much.
The biggest changes have been internally. I no longer seek approval from others and find my self-worth from within, knowing that I am living up to my potential by self examination and integrity.
I may never know why Leo killed himself but I do know that suicide is an awful way to solve problems and it only hurts those who are left behind.
Now that I have been down my life path six more years, I keep looking to the future not backwards in despair; I just keep on Celebrating Life!
All is well,

It has been quite some time since I blogged. I have been reading past posts and comments and realized how much I missed this medium for expression of my thoughts and reflections.
I have traveled many miles on life's road since I started blogging. I have endured pain, heartbreak and sorrow but more importantly I have flourished with blessings and love. People have come and gone from my life in the past 6 years but I have also made many friends who have stayed with me but most of all I still have my loving family.
This morning we had snow on the ground and the wind is howling.... as much as I despise the cold and am not looking forward to winter I know there are good days to come with many blessings to come. Despite the winter weather there are warm memories and a grateful heart that keep me optimistic.
I hope you all are having a marvelous fall!
