Hi there... back from vacation... went to Landrau State Park... in Southern MN... well went with three ladies with chronic mental illnesses... my work sent me understaffed... for four days... normally have 2 staff... the 2 days before the trip laid it on my that they were not going to pay for the I donated 400 dollars essentiallly... joke of all jokes...however...the ladies and I had an excellent time until the last day when one of them decompensated so badly... had major problems on the way home... it was 250 miles... there... a 6 hour trip... oh yeah and 6 hours back...but we had a great time... and they have something that they wouldn't have had... a vacation... I made CD's for them with all the pics...
Now back to the grind..... have to move... losing 1/2 the household income kinda does that.... but applying for jobs State system... turned down one in February.. cuz couldn't take it... so things will turn better here... God has His hands on me...and for now we had a wonderful vacation.. and the future is in God's hands... Sandi

My heart did flips the day ...
I laid eyes on Mike..
there on that construction site..
I worked side by side
with him for months..
concrete work...
we did...
I smiled... flirted...
kept the flutters inside...
but oh I was so gone on him..
so weak in the knees...
everyone on that crew
thought I was a b...
with my rough going ways..
and potty mouth...
had to be tough...
kept them in place..
but that little cutie..
just had to be mine..
as so one day...
it happened...
he looked my way..
said ur not so tough..
and we talked for
hours and hours...
about this and that...
he saw the inside..
past the tough...
he knew I was just a big
ole marshmellow puff...
and so we began...
the love story of
my life...
for six 1/2 years...
we travelled a path..
thought it seems an eternity...
and now he has passed..
every day...
every moment..
I feel his touch...
there in my heart..
where he resides..
I am blessed to
know him...
love him...
have him...
I am blessed today...
for the memories
for the love given
I am blessed indeed!!!
