Give voice...get everyone involved. Ask your faith community to support your endeavors. Have the help number printed in your church bulletin. Each one of us is responsible to protect our children. If you see something, say something. Thank you. St. Maria Goretti, pray for us.

The first thing I noticed was the empty space in the pack of peppers. It didn't seem to make much of a difference. The pepper family stayed together. I would probably pick one from the middle too...just to see if I could. This picture is the prompt. What don't you see that you want to write about. My title would be, "this is a Wake Up Call."

It is such a privilege to be a mother.
Here is the mother of Christ. When our children suffer, we too have an indescribable ache in our hearts. Many of us...too many of us know that ache. The number of children who are molested before the age of 18. One in three girls and one in five boys. THEY have mothers...who suffer when they know this has happened to their child.
Do they ever forget? No!
A mother who knows and understands is our Blessed Mother given to us by Jesus himself as He hung on the cross.
Thank you, Jesus. Since my real mom is deceased now I often (daily) turn to her and ask for comfort and consolation for all those who are suffering in any way from the impact of sexual abuse.

One thing I really dislike is when people start talking about things but don't know what they are saying. You know the type that likes to hear themselves...be the center of attention. Basically they make up.
You are not sure what is happening.
You think something might be wrong.
Something doesn't feel quite right.
Is something amiss here? Could be.
I'm a mother and what's going on?
NOW IS THE TIME TO SPEAK UP!!!
"If s mother thinks something is wrong, something is wrong." Btesk the silence.
Make a report. Tell someone. Protect your family members, neighbors and even strangers.

Tell your children to keep the faith. Our mothers may not always be around for us but Jesus, son of God, gave us His Blessed Mother to comfort and console us. How often I turn to her for consolation. This can be the greatest tool for a survivor. Let children know about her. I keep her on my refrigerator as a reminder to call on her. You too, Please. Amen.

We all usually know what to do AFTER we recognize a problem. So,this word lived ...becomes a solution . We see children react to being too hungry, angry, lonely or tired. Well, So do you and I.

My mother probably took this picture and this time she didn't cut our heads Off.
I am posting this picture while watching the 'March for Life ' in Washington,DC.
My mother was told to have an abortion when she was pregnant with my sister. My mother said, "absolutely not! "
That doctor died before her due date. I was a most difficult delivery for my mother but my sister was the easiest ever.
I thank God every day for my sister! She brings joy to our family and today is my best friend.
We are a PRO-LIFE family!
My grandson is marching today and I am proud of this new generation. Thank you!

In order to 'Stop the silence'
start a conversation,
Like child sexual abuse,
Wierd people in the family,
What would YOU do?
Who would you call?
Do you know how it could happen right under your roof?
Are there people to talk to?
How could this happen?
Have you ever heard of incest or did you look it up?
My book was read in two hours by a court reporter
From the Sirhan Sirhan case
And the Charles Manson trial.
Either read it on line or with e-reader.
The softcover is on Amazon and in book stores .
Read it today!
The royalties from this book are given to

|Joanie Lundell & Casey|
Honoring one of my friends
Who died of cancer in 2014.
Joanie died in 2014 and I have really been missing her.
I took this picture in her kitchen the day she
Shaved her head!
She called on my cell. "Come over, quick," she said.
I was in the neighborhood running errands and hurried over.
The gate was unlocked and the sliding glass door open.
When I called out her name, she hesitated for only a second before she
Jumped out, arms outstretched with a "Taaaa-daaaa!"
"What do you think?
I'm a blonde!
And I'm gonna have fun with all of this!"
I was speechless and supported her courageous spirit.
You can see her Christmas tree in the background.
It was always spectacular. Once she kept it up all year long.
It was about living and loving always with that spirit.
If she didn't pray for you....she probably hadn't met you.
I have a committment to say the rosary on the 17th of each month.
I remembered while we were at Shadowbrook
In front of a big roaring fire having a drink...
And yes, using our fingers we prayed the Rosary.
May the Souls of the faithful departed, rest in peace, amen.
PERMISSION TO MOURN
A new way to do grief by Tom Zuba
Is a new book that I suggest reading.

On November 19, I was flying around my house in the best of health for the whole past year...back to my"old" self! This meant I was very productive around the house and wasn't paying as much attention to things outside as I should. It was garbage day...get the cans from the back yard out to the curb.
It was getting dark and it was raining.
I took off out the side door, whipped around the back of my new car and TRIPPED over the black rain spout that juts out on the ground. I went down so fast there was no time for my life to flash in front of me.
My head bounced on the driveway. I tasted blood, my tongue tasted warm blood when my lip split inside. I screamed for help and spit out asphalt leaving little chunks stuck between my teeth. My neighbors were home and immediately came to my rescue. One called 9-1-1 while the other put blankets on me and told me not to move while the rain pooled beneath me. Others came from nearby as well as the biggest fire truck and ambulance.
Now to the point of this blog. I was shocky and too many people talked all at once. The fireman asked to enter my house and I approved. On my fridge was my FILE of LIFE card. It contained all the information needed to facilitate a smooth transfer to the Emergency room. These magnetic info cards are handy and the fireman thanked me for having one. Of course, I never thought it would get used. Please get one. Ask your pharmacist.
Oh, I broke my arm. It was an undisplaced fracture of the radial head. No cast. I am healing but it was a life changing event with my family. So, be prepared...And most of all, be careful !

When the new year rolls around we get a clean slate. I love to start over. As you can see I have not been blogging for awhile. It doesn't mean I don't have plenty of things to talk about , but I can't always figure something out technically! It takes time and usually it's by accident ... Like now. So...welcome this New Year!!
