I WAS going to start....

a series of posts outlining the steps involved in my stained glass project I'm working on.

I spent the better part of the early afternoon downloading pictures off my camera onto the computer. I had a ton of them, pictures of work being done on our new house, pictures of the new foster dog we have here, pictures of my glass project I'm working on, lots of pictures I'm here to tell you.
Well, I managed to get about half of them downloaded just like they should have, but I'm not sure what happened next. I was adding all the stained glass photos into my folder so I could do a series of posts describing the process from start to finish. Somehow I managed to lose all the glass pictures without them being downloaded! Makes me so mad!
I guess, I'll have to start over with the next project I work on, and hope I don't mash the wrong button on this machine and lose everything again. Wish me luck.

I have not felt well all day, my attitude has been less than award winning to say the least and the picture problems didn't help it one little bit. I'm grumpy, my joints and my back just ache like a miserable toothache, and I feel that dreaded wave of depression over my mother's death coming on. My birthday (which is next week), her birthday, my son's birthday, Mother's Day, the holidays and the anniversary of her death brings the depression on like a tidal wave. I HATE it and I wish it would ease up on me. It's been nearly 5 years since Mom passed away and I swear it's still just as painful today as it was back in Aug. '04. Please keep me in your prayers as I fight through this yet again. And those of you reading this that still have your mothers, hug them, hang out with them, take them to lunch, enjoy them and tell them you love them!! They won't be there forever, enjoy them while you have them.

I leave you with a picture of my beautiful mother Jerri, with one of her baby birds she raised.


Until next time,

Thanks Angie for your sweet comment and all that you do for animals. If you ever come across another abandoned mini dach, let me know. Oscar is fine, but wasn't feeling very photographic this week. I set him on the kitchen table, but he wouldn't look at the camera. He kept anticipating the flash :>

Blessings.

Also, please know I'll be sending up special prayers for peace for you these next several day. God Bless.

I hope the depression doesn't take hold. You don't need that right now. I hope you will be able to be strong enough to fight it. You can do it!

Hold on tight, Angie. When I lost my mom in '99 and my dad in '03, I felt like a sixty-something orphan. It's not easy.

One suggestion - when you're missing your mom the most, picture her doing something nice for someone, and go and do it in her name. If she had a special friend, take that person to lunch. A special charity? Send a gift. Did she like to take a day once in a while and just waste the heck out of it? Then do that. Spend the time sitting in a backyard swing or something, and just let your spirit commune with hers. Getting over her death doesn't mean forgetting about her. Instead, it means remembering her, in the most constructive ways you can think of. And remember, it's not over. You'll see her again.
