This is my Dad. He is AWESOME. Deacon Marty Wilhelm. Please pray for him. As I pray for all of you. I started this blog (and will end it) with a passion to cook comfort food from every country around the world. I will keep my word.
Comfort….how do you define that word? At age 13, my sweet son, he is still boy but now a boy working his way to manhood. what is comfort at the manly age of 13?
Comfort….at age 25, being a young woman, or 46 (BEING A YOUNG WOMAN…lol) ……how do you define comfort and…more importantly, peace of mind and heart.
This is my Dad loving my Mom. We take him to visit when we are in Denver. This is why I am moving there. To honor and care for the two people I love dearly but truly have a laundry list of what “I wished I had learned” now that I KNOW. They didn’t have a perfect marriage. They almost made it to 51 years.
I hope to love with dignity, respect, and committment like my Dad did.
We all make our mistakes. My Dad truly taught me unconditional love. He was and remains the best Dad and my beloved Hero ever.
He taught me to love the color. (My sister and I used to help him make sure he had the right wires because he was color blind)
He gave me the gift of loving being on and near any body of water…..and then he brought us to Colorado and I learned to love the Rocky Mountains.
These are my grandparents:
You never know what life brings your way. We all make our share of good and bad choices. But, regardless, I know, if you have a heart full of love ….it will come back to you…..
Even if life deals you…….lemons. walnuts, persimmons….who the hell cares…..EMBRACE IT!
I am not rich. I am not poor. When I look at my grandparents above I feel so honored. I am making a book of amazing slides and negatives and film of both sides of my family. To share with my children….and our family
One of my best friend’s significant other is battling severe leukemia and must have a bone marrow transplant.
Another dear family member, who I was recently honored to meet, has to have an eye removed due to cancer.
My Mom died from cancer. I miss her every day. Some days more than others. :0) As we as children, mothers, and husbands know!
Blog etiquette : keep it positive! And I am. Sort of. Life has it foibles!!! (to say the very least)
I am so grateful : My Dad …..he is not well but I will there soon so take him to church and cook him yummy food and make sure he WALKS.
My Sister: Yea….No Words….I cannot imagine life on earth without her…..We call each other on our ‘stuff” ……..I love honesty. And I love what comes with honesty…..Growth.
Meelo: I understand why people like pets. (BUT NOT MACBOOK PROS!) I RECENTLY WENT ALL MAC AND IT IS ANNOYING ME THAT I HAVE A PIC ON ICLOUD AND IT IS NOT ON MY LAPTOP! GRRRR…..I WILL FIGURE IT OUT!
I am learning every day about what it means to be a true parent. A parent who can embrace adversity and hopefully leads by example. Living a life of imperfection, learning, and example I hope will, someday, as I live rich in my own life, enrich and challenge them to live wonderfully fulfilled lives of their own…..I am their MAT. The Mom who is always there. The Ass(sorry) she can make of herself at times.
Cooking will come soon. I promised English Steak and Kidney Pie. At the moment, with my various infections….I cannot taste anything.
IT IS GOOD THAT WE HAVE CHOICE. We can choose to create or -re-create our own personal flavor for our life.
I shared this on Facebook….but here is a beauty – my sweet niece, Em and my Mom and Dad!
I will now step off my pedestal…..if you don’t mind…..
Love and happy dreams….
