Then There Was One

Sharing life with someone special is a lifelong journey, hopefully with many years together. There are ups and downs, good and bad, for better or worse, in sickness and health…’till death do us part…and then there was one.

May your journey be full of joy and your memories warm and lasting.

With Each Sunrise

Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom. (Psalm 90:12)

 With each sunrise, we are one day closer to the finish line. Hopefully, we live each day with anticipation. No two days are alike. Each day is different from the day before. We may get stuck in a rut for a period of time and cause each day to seem the same, but they are unique. If we would consider each day as a gift, perhaps the day ahead would take on new meaning, new anticipation.

Our days are numbered, but for each of us, that number is unknown. How we spend our days is in our hands. .Today will be a memory tomorrow. Hopefully, with each sunset, we can know we lived the day wisely…with anticipation…with hope.

Passing By


In our daily routine, we may pass by a home with grief within. We may pass by a cemetery and see a canopy erected over a new grave as family and friends gather to say goodbye. Life goes on each day and so does death.

We are often unaware of the shadows of grieving around us each day, but they are there. Sometimes, as it comes to mind, say a prayer for those whose time has come…those families who grieve this day…a small prayer in passing by.


One Day at a Time

We can only live one day at a time. We can choose to make the most of the time given. We can strive for memories that bring a smile rather than a regret. We can do our best, each day, as we live one day at a time.
