A Dad is a person
Who is loving and kind.
And often he knows
What you have on your mind.
He's someone who listens,
suggests, and defends
A dad can be one
of your very best friends:
He's proud of your triumphs,
but when things go wrong,
A dad can be patient
and helpful and strong.
In all that you do,
a Dad's love plays a part
There's always a place for him
deep in your heart
And each year that passes,
you're even more glad.
More grateful and proud
just to call him your dad!
Thank you Dad...
for listening and caring,
for giving and sharing,
but, especially, for just being you.
Happy Fathers Day
Father's Day is a day of honoring fatherhood and paternal bonds, as well as the influence of fathers in society. Celebrated Sunday, June 20th.
Happy Summer Solstice
At the summer solstice, the Sun travels the longest path through the sky, and that day therefore has the most daylight. When the summer solstice happens in the Northern Hemisphere, the North Pole is tilted about 23.4° toward the Sun.
Commemorating the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777.
Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know
Coins of any kind may be a sign of angels. Like feathers, angels will put coins along your path to let you know they are with you. They often appear if you are worried about a physical or material need. Finding a coin often means your needs are being taken care of.
Summer is a celebration of the Earth’s incredible beauty and power!
Summer is a festival of this inner fire/power, the power that makes abundance and nourishment grow from tiny seeds. The power that brings things to fulfillment, and expands and brightens our lives, and makes good things come from seed ideas and plans.
The warmth of the sun and the long, hot days continually remind us of how good it is to find a balance between intense activity and lazy, idle hours doing nothing.
Summer teaches us patience. The fruit is green until it is ripe and you just cannot rush it. Something of the slow, sure rhythm of the time will enter into us if we let it; no, we cannot hurry things, but if we just relax and let go, things will reach their fullness without effort or ego’s striving on our part.
As we watch the ripening, flowering and fruiting all around us, we can’t help but be grateful for the generosity of the Earth Mother, who gives what we need so unstintingly.
Summer is a perfect time to discover our Earth connection; by receiving her gifts with respect, taking only, what we need, and doing what we can to minimize our impact on the delicate balance of the planet, we strengthen and nourish the bond we were given at birth with the great parent who sustains us all.
Many of us take vacations during the summer; we can use this time to create whole days of celebration around ancient festivals that honor the Earth’s life giving relationship with the sun.
By entering into activities that teach respect for and connection with these great powers vital sun and nourishing Earth, we align ourselves with those powers in a very deep way.
As we watch the field baking in the heat and as we feel the suns power to burn as well as to bless we can feel our own gifts, our own special abilities as they ripen and swell, and know that we, too, have the power to make a difference for growth or for destruction in the world…. it is a time to mark peak moments, moments of warmth and growth.
Our ancestors built huge bonfires on this day to celebrate their tangible connection to the vital power of the immense burning star that keeps our planet bright, warm and alive.
It is a good time to remember that we, like the sun, contain the power to nurture and sustain, and that we have a responsibility to burn as brightly as we can.
It is the time to invite fire into our lives, fire to burn away all that we have outgrown and no longer serves us; fire that makes the wild things grow in us, for which our inner selves have longed.
The month of June is upon us already. Where does the time go? The question of the month for us was have you had your vaccination yet? If so which one? It has become the new hello replacing when do you think this will be over. However, we do still debate the different types of vaccines, whether we have received one or not. In some ways it has become more difficult to distinguish rational thought from wishful thinking. It all can be very emotional. Chatting with friends and acquaintances as well as strangers. Masked, distance, hopeful, relieved to finally it is out turn. We made it into the lifeboat.
The mask mandate in our part of the world was lifted during the month of May. While our family has continued to err on the side of caution our son’s school was able to allow each student to opt out of wearing a mask. When we confronted our son, he was cautious and expressed that he was not yet comfortable with taking it off at the schoolhouse. We were quite surprised at his thoughts as he expressed them to us. It reminded us that our children are listening whether we know it or not.
We decided to take a ride to see my Mother for her special day in May. It turned out to be a beautiful day along the coast and even more so to see my beautiful Mother. Mother’s Day turned out to be perfect visiting even more of the family than what was expected. We took some wonderful pictures and even walked down memory lane a bit. I love you Mom!
We celebrated Memorial Day laying low mostly and enjoying some of the shows on television. We visited Patrick’s Grandparents and placed flowers on their graves for the occasion. His Grandfather was a veteran of WWI while his Dad having served in Korea. My Dad also a veteran serving around the world during his tenure. My hope is that everyone was able to reflect, remember and be at peace during this time.
Wishing you an incredible month of June with kindness, discipline, respect and gratefulness.
And on that note, I leave you to your June, my friends. Be safe. Be well.

Questions and Counsel
I’m wondering, how do I know if I’m on the right path?
There being a right path suggests that there is a wrong path, and there is no wrong path. Where we are at is where we are meant to be. If you are questioning your current place, then I suggest you start writing letters to your past self. Start reflecting on what choices lead you to where you are at and what choices you need to begin making to get where you want to go. Human free will is powerful, and our paths are always right.

The month of June is Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month. When a loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia, it has a ripple effect that can impact the entire family. In fact, families of those with memory loss are often referred to as the invisible second patients. Sadly caregivers often times become physically and emotionally over burderned and experience high rates of physical illness, social isolation and emotional distress. Finding a support group whether through family, close friends or medical professionals helps bring down the stress level tremendously. This month holds dear to my heart. During the last four years of my Mom's life she suffered through this dibilitating disease. My sister was my Mom's caregiver. I am forever grateful to her for being there and making sure Mom was taken care of until her last breath.
Alzheimer’s Taught Me to be Grateful.....
When I realized my mother’s forgetfulness, repetitive stories and questions, and increasingly uncharacteristic behaviors were more than normal aging, I knew life would never be the same. My mind raced with frustration and fear at our suddenly uncertain future.
Mom was in her mid-seventies – what seemed a young and physically strong and healthy mid-seventies. This was not supposed to happen. She had worked hard throughout her career and this was the time for her to reap the benefits. However, in a cruel turn of events, her golden years were slipping through her fingers like water through a sieve.
Mom was a mostly a quiet reserved woman; she loved to shop, was fiercely independent, but also had a small rather spunky, vibrant side of her. She made many friends throughout her life and was loved by all who knew her. When you got to know Mom, you were a friend for life. Mom loved to travel and many times I would call on the spur of the moment and say meet me in New York or Seattle, her favorite city being a toss up between Chicago and San Francisco. Mom loved nothing more than raising her three children.
I can only imagine how it felt for her – to be trapped inside a body that was betraying her; unable to communicate when she needed to.
After she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, tension permeated our close relationship. Mom struggled with shame and denial. She had developted a bit of a mean streak and I had a hard time finding the patience I needed as our natural roles shifted. I was becoming the parent, and neither of us was ready for that to happen. She had always been my rock, but my rock was crumbling.
Over the years, my emotions ran the gamut. I felt cheated. While we should have been traveling and making memories together, she was slipping further into the disease. Her laughter was often replaced with tears, and piercing outbursts sometimes filled the air for hours. Even in the advanced stage, I am certain she had moments of clarity and knew what was happening. It was gut wrenching to witness, so I can only imagine how it felt for her – to be trapped inside a body that was betraying her, unable to communicate when she needed to.
Time marched on, and each visit was unique and unpredictable. I cannot pinpoint the exact moment that it happened, but it was like an epiphany when I truly accepted this new life. It had taken a few years. With that acceptance came a sense of relief and gratitude. Mom was changing every day, but she was still the woman who had been by my side for more than five decades. Her essence, the core of her being, was very much present.
When she could not come back to my world, I found that I could visit and go to hers. It was in that place we connected and shared remarkably beautiful moments of joy. Sometimes, it was just holding hands and watching the birds and squirrels hop around in the grass. Or watching her absolute delight at the sight of a vanilla ice cream cone. We would look at photographs and I would listen as she laughed, pointing at the images and jabbering away unintelligibly. Perhaps I could not understand the words, but I could certainly grasp the emotion behind them.
When the phone rang that cold, windy January morning at somewhere around three o'clock I knew deep in my heart it was time. My sister was calling to let me know that Mom had been moved to hospice. The outlook wasn't good and we were told that Mom had a few hours maybe two to three days at the most. We would have to travel to get to Mom and there was much preparation before leaving. I sent my son to school that morning keeping the news from him until time to leave and allowed myself a few moments to reflect on what was happening. We are a close family and Mom had her entire family with her by that evening. Mom was incoherent her last bit of time. We all took turns sitting with her and having a moment to say our goodbyes individually. I remember holding her hand and telling her how much I loved her. I didn't want to let go. It was during a bit of reminiscing of old times and finding a few humurous moments that Mom decided it was her time. I believe she knew she had a room full of smiles and that her family was finally at peace. It was during this time that she decided to take her new journey. I remember that last breath and the tears that followed. My son held my hand tightly and when I looked down the tears were streaming down his face. He looked at me and softly said "I want my Grandma back". I knelt down and hugged him as tight as i could.
Her smile, the rare “I love you,” or a glimpse of a familiar facial expression or gesture that was so unmistakably Mom brought a profound sense of gratitude. In an odd way, Alzheimer’s made our bond even stronger than it had been before. It allowed us to connect on a deeper, visceral level, and for that, I will be forever grateful. I love you Mom!
