our loss, heaven's gain

this is the dear friend that we all lost this past friday.....he was doing what he loved.....climbing a mountain....angel's landing in zion national park. and i guess enough angels saw him.... realized his potential....and just swept him away! i know that he is okay.....it's just the hole in our hearts that are left aching for this man!

this week has been trying at the surgery center.....new people coming in.....trying to fill shoes that are way to large for them.......we all just need time..... the person who is selected to come to work will have to prove themselves in so many ways.......and it's unfortunate for them.....barry was a force....a perfectionist.....and he demanded that from his co-worker's also.

i'm sure with time we will all welcome another member into our fold.....just not now....it's too soon.



this saturday is the race for the cure......i am on a couple of teams.....carolina sue's crew, and also "help pickett kick it".....two very dear women in my life. sue is a survivor of a few years....and inga is just about to finish her chemo. my prayers are for each and everyone that has or will face this disease to have recovery and survival. i also have another dear friend that is a survivor.....lyn meeker.....she is not in st. louis.....but in arizona and i race for her too!!!


today was spent working on the secret sister information for Creative escape......just 3 short months and we will all be in arizona again.......happily playing with paper and glue.......losing sleep.....running on empty......and having the time of our lives!! i can't wait to see some of the friends i made last summer and reconnect with them!!

i love my life!!!
