Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....

I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this raunchy disease. My words always help me understand that in this life there will be times that are crappy painful and unexpected but tucked in there are the amazingly wonderful, too. That is when I realized the only control I have over any of this is how I chose to experience them! I realized that I could understand, celebrate can survive even better when I could express these feelings with my own words of courage, humor, and grace. I am the Queen of my own life and the choice is mine!

I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to grieve my losses, to laugh long and hard, and to learn how to live a full magnificent life with heart failure.

I am honoring my creativity, and exploring all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say....."Don't talk like that!"

Nanny's Tulip Tree

Remembering a gracious southern lady!  Blossoms from Nanny’s tulip tree remind me so much of her!  These incredible delicate blooms on really tough wood branches are the perfect description of Nanny.  A kind southern woman that could charm you out of anything, but do not mess with her!  She had the strength of 3 men!  She grew the most wonderful feminine gardens and gorgeous flower beds, the perfect picture of southern hospitality but ran her business and miles of orange groves with an iron fist.  She would run a crew of “pickers” harvesting fruit all morning and sit in her sewing room mending that afternoon.  There was nothing she could not do.  I am so happy that there are reminders of her all around me.
