Pamela June Lewis | 1954 – 2015

My mom passed away just over 4 weeks ago. In the days immediately following her death, there was a deep sense of peace and relief; she had suffered so long and was finally at rest.

Five Years Ago | My Miracle Momma & Long Term Suffering

We sat in my parents living room … Continue reading throwback to a funeral that never happened…

life lessons as taught by a novice scooter rider.

      We've spent  much of our summer swimming, barbecuing, going to parks and scooting. A lot of scooting. By "we" I mean, Rubina and by "a lot" I mean A LOT. She is a scooting machine; not a well oiled machine but a machine, nonetheless. She's learning to be patient with herself and to focus … Continue reading life lessons as taught by a novice scooter rider.
