poor, poor bambi...

So I was cruising along this morning after dropping my dog off at my parents house on Riverside drive, a four lane, 45 - 60 miles per hour road, and talking on my cell phone.

As we came around a big curve in the road, everyone was slowing down because there was a baby deer in the road trying to escape into woods. Unfortunately for Bambi him there was a large fence that was blocking him from running free into the woods. Of course we were all stopped watching him run into the fence multiple times trying to find his way over. After a few attempts he gave up and darted back across four lanes and got hit right next to me by a car traveling the other direction. Bambi skidded across to the side of the road and was able to pull him self up and run/ skip off into the woods.

Little did I know that he was not alone.

I've grown up in the country and I drive in the country a lot to get from our house to my parents house. With that said, I KNOW that deer ALWAYS travel in pairs. If one jumps into the street, chances are there will be another. Unfortunately for Bambi, the other was his mother. She was hit and didn't jump up. She was in the middle of the two lanes with three cars that were involved with her death.

So being the woman that I am, with the emotions that I can't always control... I cried. I cried because not only was Bambi (obviously seriously) hurt but his/her mother was killed and wouldn't be there to travel with her to safety.

Oh I was a mess.

I feel terrible for those two and I absolutely hate when animals are hurt like that. I understand that it's a risk especially during hunting season but gosh, what a sight...



Pray that Bambi finds safety and that he/she can be nursed back to health!



Rethinking about this now makes my heart ache...

No, no, no, no, no. I'm so sorry you had to witness both of their accidents. Poor Bambi, I really do hope that it will health and grow up. My heart hurts now as well.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
