eCard of the Week #169: Grief Is Like Living Two Lives

Grief is like living two lives.
One is where you "pretend" everything 
is alright, and the other is where your 
heart  silently screams in pain.

In Memory of Colt

I made a photo book on Shutterfly awhile back...I am not good 
at putting stuff like this together but I think it turned out ok. 
 I miss Colt so much...words cannot express how I feel.
This might take a few minutes to load.
Please do not steal these photos.  If you want a copy, email me at shaycv@yahoo.com.

A Cubical Christmas

I am trying my best to get through Christmas this year. Things I am doing to get through may not seem much to anyone else...but to me it is a lot.  I am just taking things one day at time. So, at work, I did a little "makeover" of my Christmas decor  I added a few new things and rearranged everything.

Winter 2016 Is Here

of Winter 2016.  Thankfully the sidewalks did not need
 to be cleared, and the road were, for the most part clear,
