    What an amazing slide show!!!!! Good luck tonight, Kenny. We know you will amaze the judges --you already are courageous like your dad and have made a difference in so many lives, including ours. Michelle-- thanks for continuing to share your story and the kids. You amaze us.

    We love you all.

    Bob, Mindy, Annalee and Caleb

  2. Kenny, how amazing is that. I know you will need no luck tonight because they will see what I saw an awsome person who has made a difference in this world. I know your dad is looking down tonight and is so proud of you and what you have accomplished, what you continue to accomplish and what you will accomplish in the future.


    No matter what Kenny, you ARE a star, an awesome bright shining star that lights up no matter where you are (even in chicago!). Best of luck and lots of love,


  4. Wow, Kenny, I just love your senior presentation! I think my favorite part was seeing you "grow up" in the first pictures, looking so much like Dave in some of them. You have your dad in your heart, your looks, and in your generous nature. Lucky you!

    Love, -Deb

Unlucky 13

13. Unlucky they say.
I kind of laugh.  I think I've always been unlucky,
13 or no.

Today marks 13 years without Dave here.
This year, more than any other, I marvel at the number of changes he has missed.

Our first grandchild, Emmie, born this year.
Zach and Kailee, such loving parents.
Kate and Kenny, out on their own.

And me.
This last year has been nothing BUT change for me.
Moving to Port Angeles.
Starting a new job, and then another.
Finding my tribe in a new place.
Falling in love, getting married.
Blessed all over again
With a husband, a partner, my love,
Who protects me, takes care of me, loves me unconditionally,
Is always there, holds me when things get rough, and
Never wavers.
Rock steady, true blue, pure love.

I never thought I'd be here.
And I question myself every single day.
Was it the right decision?
Not to marry Dennis...he truly is everything to me.
But to leave my family?

It's been so hard.
I miss them so much.
And feel guilt even amidst the …

August Blog Challenge - Day 7

What is your dream job and why?

I have my dream job.  I really do.

I work at Walla Walla Community College.  It's the best community college in the nation according to the Aspen Institute.

And it is. It really is.

I went to a private university.  A pretty snobby, pretentious one. I thought the community college would somehow be "less" than a university.

I was so wrong.

This place is filled with dynamic, passionate, intelligent people.  And these people care so much about the students they serve. I am continually awed by the caliber of learning and the depth of compassion I see every day.

And I get to be a part of it.

The work I do is hard. But I have a partner.  Daryl.  He's my sanity.  He keeps me grounded.  He's brilliant and insightful and he fills my work days with unconditional love.  We support each other. We talk and connect every day, sustaining each other in ways that go far beyond the surface.  We grow together as people and as therapists.  We fight b…


So I had my first Walla Walla goodbyes.
The first was my eye doctor, Dr. Poffenroth.
He's taken care of my eyes for 25 years.
He's more than just an eye doctor.  He's a caring person and a friend.
As I left my last appointment, he handed me a card with a referral to a friend of his who practices in Port Angeles.
I looked at the card.
And realized...I won't see him again.

I've been living in a bit of denial.
I know.  Big surprise.

With all the excitement and chaos of moving,
And all the stress of living in limbo,
I somehow missed that I'd be leaving some things
some people

I know I'll be back often.
To see my kids and the new grandbaby,
friends and family.
This fact allowed me to forget...
there are some I won't see.

Even though we promise to keep in touch,
Life has a way of getting busy.
Good intentions and all that.

I  have written many times about Walla Walla.
It's a magical place.
Safe, nurturing.
I never thought I'd leave.
