Merry Meet and Bright Blessings to you and yours!

This page is in memory of my Mom, who lost her battle with Malignant Melanoma on December 14, 2008.  She fought long and hard and to the bitter end.  The emptiness she left behind is so incredibly profound, but I'm at peace knowing that she's no longer in pain and suffering the indignities that came with her horrific disease.  To say she died a peaceful death would be a lie, it was not pretty nor was it easy for her or any of us.  What I do know that is that I will continue to try and make her proud and hope that someday I can be half the woman she was.  She was beautiful, kind, wise, patient, forgiving, incredibly courageous, devoted, loving, compassionate, intelligent, amazing, accepting, tireless, determined, focused and real beyond words.  I am who I am today because she believed in me.  She always gave more than she received and tried to make this world a better place.  She accepted people for who they were and loved without boundaries.  She taught by example and had incredible faith.  I love and miss you every second of every day Mom............ You were and still are my bright shining light and I thank you for sharing your life with me.

As we celebrate the election of a new President, let us all keep in mind that we have a lot of hard work ahead of us, this is just the beginning.  If we truly want to make a difference, it's up to all of us to help change and turn back the damage done the last 8 years during the Bush Administration.  Our new President can't do it alone, he's counting on us to help make his dream of a new and better America a reality.  Roll up your sleeves and get ready to get down and dirty!

I'm sure many of you have noticed I have not been on Care2 much lately.  It isn't out of lack of interest, please know that.  I began a new job in August as the Laboratory Manager of a new long term acute care hospital here in Boise, and it has and will continue to occupy most of my time.  It was a huge undertaking but one that has given me new purpose and provided the much needed challenge I've been seeking for many years now.

This page is also dedicated to my beloved "Sampson" who passed away in July of 2006.  His gentle soul and loving spirit are always on my mind and he is missed more than words can express.  I mourn his loss deeply because he embodied everything I beleive in.  He loved completely and without reservation and showed me that every creature is special and deserves respect, compassion and understanding.  I miss you my "Boo Boo", you have left permanent paw prints on my heart...............
