Life’s Tapestry

“God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11 NLT)

The back of a tapestry appears very confusing with threads and knots going in every direction. It seems the time and material have been wasted; there is nothing of sense that the eye can see.

Life can be like the back of a tapestry when there are no clear answers or reasons why things happen as they do. Life, like the tapestry, can seem all knotted up and confusing with nothing for the eye to behold.

“God has made everything beautiful for its own time.” Someday, we will see the front of the tapestry and see the beauty that has been there the whole time.


Memory Bear Therapy


To hold and hug, while you remember through tears of love…

that’s the therapy a Memory Bear brings.


Along the Way

This path of life can take us in many different directions and can be uncertain with its challenges and turns. The length of the journey can be many years or just a few days. Eventually, whether short or long, we all reach the end of our earthly journey.

Along the way, there are blessings to gather and memories to make. There are tears to soften our hearts and smiles to light the way, discouragements to overcome and the hope to carry on. There are those we love who share the journey with us. There are hellos and goodbyes, beginnings and endings…there is this and more, along the way.

Made with Love and Concern

I am thankful for my experience as a Certified Hospice Nursing Assistant. Without it, I am not sure if I would be able to expose myself to all the pain and loss I hear when talking with a grieving family member.

When the idea of creating Memory Bears came to me, I wanted my focus to be personable as I prepared the clothing that would be used for their bear. Talking with the family as they share their grief and memories of the one they have lost makes all the difference. Then, the bear can be made with love and concern.

Memory Bears are to be personable as they are made from your loved one’s clothing. They will be there for you to “hold and hug” as you remember.

If you would like more information about Memory Bears for you or your family, call or email me. See “Contact Me” for details.

“May your memories linger always”


Time Is Not On Our Side

Contrary to the song, time is not on our side. In the blink of an eye, life as we know it can change and sometimes drastically. We plan for and believe tomorrow is ours. Maybe it is…maybe it isn’t.

It is important to take full advantage of the time we have…today…this moment. Regret happens when we fail to do or say what we can…now.

I am thinking of you today

think I’ll give you a call tomorrow

Don’t wait to make that phone call when there is no one to answer. Time is not on our side…no it isn’t. Your opportunity is today.
