Celebrating A Life’s Sunset And A Life’s Sunrise…A Funeral And A Birthday

Life is……..

Celebrating the homegoing of my father figure, and the 8th birthday of my eldest daughter.




Birth and death, twin-sister and twin-brother,

Night and day, on all things that draw breath,
Reign, while time keeps friends with one another
Birth and death.

Each brow-bound with flowers diverse of wreath,
Heaven they hail as father, earth as mother,
Faithful found above them and beneath.

Smiles may lighten tears, and tears may smother
Smiles, for all that joy or sorrow saith:
Joy nor sorrow knows not from each other
Birth and death.
Algernon Charles Swinburne

” I do”

A couple of months ago, I was debating taking on the role of Vice President of the PTO at my children’s school.  Well, I decided to committ myself to this task and look forward to the new ways that I can be of service to our school, teachers and students!  Even though I still wonder how I am going to make this fit in with the incessant demands of my fulltime job, obligations to home, and some slither of “me time” – which is seemingly to be  as hard to find as a pot of gold at the bottom of a rainbow, I know I can, therefore I will 🙂 


In the end, it ‘s all about the kids.
