Life as a Miracle: a Triumphant Use of My College Degree

If you don’t recall what transpired in yesterday’s installment, look back. Now – it was the preamble to this valiant tale, the day I empowered my mother. I didn’t intend to take sides but as a certified speech-language pathologist –  and daughter #1 – how could I not act?...

Life as a Miracle: an evening dress and an ICU visit

This miracle started with a fundraiser, well, it actually started with a disease. Cancer, the big, f***ing, frightening disease.

I’d had breast cancer – and before that, my mom did. We survived, lived to tell our tale and show our support for others facing the enormous scope of this disease.… ...

Life as a Miracle: Tiny Cupcake

A diet began. Not out of preference, but out of necessity: I have no willpower and my weight had punched up. Groan.  😐

Yeah, my body was more than over-plump. I’d edged into fat. A while ago, but it was time.… ...

LIFE as a MIRACLE: the book of Mormons

So, last summer my husband and I drove days and days through Utah, the land of Mormons and flat, distant-vista terrain. Our destinations were the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone, the grandest of “America the Beautiful” parks. Along the way, we serendipity-toured a fort, fully preserved with the dishes and clothing and telegraph office, the latter the genesis of the fort-in-the-middle-of-nowhere.… ...

Life as a Miracle: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

“Cleveland Rocks”. “Magic Carpet Ride”. “American Girl”. “Ride My SeeSaw”.

What do these rock anthems have in common?

Many things, Constant Reader, many things. And, all of them memorable validations to me… Our Father wanted us to be there, despite a ticket snafu 😉 (but that’s another block post, a miracle to be believed)

  1. “Cleveland Rocks” was the tune on the airport shuttle’s radio, starting up when the vehicle entered the terminal’s looping drive and ending as the driver dropped us off at SouthWest Airlines’ gates.

Life as a Miracle: ATT to phone home

The Loma Pieta, CA earthquake occurred on this date at 5:04 p.m. I’d just begun two things I never do:

1. turn on the TV to watch baseball’s World Series, a crosstown rivalry event in the Bay Area, and

2.… ...

Life as a Miracle: 40th Birthday Surprise

My husband relishes control, while I cherish freedom. Each accepted the challenge of the other, near 40 years ago.

As you might surmise, Larry hates surprises. As the girlfriend, I’d tried once, in front of his sisters, by making popcorn balls for his birthday.… ...

Grace

My belief system should be clear to you, Constant Reader. I’ve often used the Einstein quote in my four years of blog-iverse blather. There is a God and He offers miracles daily. I believe. It’s a choice.

I also had grand Parents, who tried their best to get along and raise four kids…though they didn’t raise the siblings to get along with me.… ...

Life as a Miracle: Satchel Easy-Peasy

airport-739311_640Life as a Miracle for the Colando couple seems to revolve around airports, not a door.

Life as a Miracle related to travel validates our quest, our zest for forays throughout the world.

The one I’ll relate in this post rolls back to 1993, when my husband traveled-for-a-month on business+fun in Europe.… ...

Life as a Miracle: LAX Crosswalk

airport-739311_640It was late night and I was alone. At LAX, a pinpoint on the daily passenger map, estimated back then at 50 million people a day. A minuscule ant among those traveling hither-thither-and-yon.

Scared. You bet I was. Even a near miss wouldn’t do: I needed to re-unite with my man.… ...
