The Unknowns

We all face the 'unknowns'.  My biggest unknown right now is: where will I be living and working come fall.  I know I'll have a job and that my bills will get paid and that I won't have to live out of my vehicle (LOL).  But, I don't know where that will be and if I'll have to ship boxes...and possibly my vehicle.  (If I'm going to stay in education, I would prefer to be able to be in Kodiak, AK again.  I love Kodiak!) 

But, maybe it's time for me to venture into something else?  I entertain running my own kennel.  Or, having my own B&B.  Hmmmm....the unknown.

One thing I do know...God has always taken care of me.  And, as I wait for the unknowns to segue into the known I'm enjoying life...and am so glad that I have family and friends in which to share it.

The eve of another Mother's Day

   Well, there comes a time when, as much as I've thought of myself as a techie person, I've finally decided to start blogging my I see it and have seen it.  I might talk about today.  I might talk about yesterday and how it has influenced today.

   Today is the eve of Mother's Day.  It is my nineteenth motherless Mother's Day. 
   I think that I think about my mom every day.  Sometimes I see her in someone's smile, or the twinkle in someone's eyes.  Sometimes I see her in the clothes someone is wearing.  Or, I catch a glimpse of the back of her long, soft, brown hair.  I often hear her say "Everything's going to be alright". 
  But, when I see and hear her the most is when I am at church.  I hear her singing and smiling and caring for people.  I have this gift of my mom still with me.  It is a bittersweet gift. 
  Tomorrow I won't go to church because I pretty much spend days such as Mother's Day crying when I go to the place where I see and hear her most vividly.  Instead, I will go to the beach where mom and I used to walk and skip rocks and laugh.  And, if I cry...she'll understand.
