April is Awareness Month for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse:

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.

Writing Prompt:

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."

March 07, 1964

The day it started...

And then after marriage and children...


It was midnight in my hell and I had just destroyed all the evidence.

Sorrow and Grief:

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. 

God bless you in your journey of healing and recovery. Keep hopeful as you deal with this trauma and help someone else along the way.

Breaking the Silence:


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 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?

"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.

                   Thank You

Queen of the Universe:

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.

How to Spell Trouble:

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. 
Next time-halt! Stop! Think about it and take care of the problem.
     You're welcome,

Non-profits Profit: a HUGE THANKS❤️


Every Life is a Gift:

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!

Read, Write and Talk:

In order to 'Stop the silence' 
start a conversation,
With subjects
Like child sexual abuse,
Wierd  people in the family,
What's normal?

Educate yourself
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

Permission to Mourn:

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.

A new way to do grief by Tom Zuba 
Is a new book that I suggest reading.

Be Prepared:

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 !

Happy New Year 2015

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!! 
I am carrying my journal with me so I can capture the highlites of my day. Track yours too. We are all making new memories.
