Kindness...


RIP Buddy....

 This week we lost Buddy Buyers - my sister-in-law's father. He was wonderful. You can read about him here. Buddy will be terribly missed.

Here's 2016!

Christmas has come and gone, and now it's 2016. The first few weeks have started off well enough - for me, at least. I caught a cold and passed it onto Matt. We're both fine now, though. We've seen the movies Concussion and Trumbo. Trumbo was better, but they're both worth watching.

I got a new wheelchair with tilt and have enjoyed chilling at home with Matt. We've been watching Nurse Jackie and finished two seasons of the Amazon show called Transparent. It's hauntingly real. I couldn't stop watching. The song below is from the Transparent Season 2 soundtrack. It's called waiting and reminds me of my brother, Shane. Lately, he's holding it together, but I'm waiting for him to change into who he deserves to be. I'm not sure it'll happen, but I'm waiting anyway...

Life is sweet. There is so much to be grateful for, so here's my list:

  • My new wheelchair
  • Matt moving in soon
  • A mild winter
  • Hannah giving me kisses on Christmas
  • Tea in the mornings
  • My family 

Happy New Year!
