“Mothers are the fountain of creation”

Five days later, and it all seems surreal. Writing and sharing is healing for the soul.

Thursday’s:) There’s Another Angel in Heaven

16 Feb

There’s another angel in heaven

Today her soul took wing

She’s up in heaven dancing

While the other angels sing

All were waiting for her

Their arms stretched open wide

To greet my angel mother

There on the other side.

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


Words cannot express the extreme sadness nor the joy that heaven has found a new angel today.

Love you Mom. 😇

90 is a milestone that many may never know. Let’s celebrate your life and times, and all the things you love so. May your day be filled with wishes for a marvelous day, and may it be filled with those you love singing, “Happy Birthday!”**************************

My sweet Mom is 90 years young today. She is still the sweetest, most talented, loving person in the entire world.

Mom, 90 years ago with her parents Luz and Antoinette.

Mom right around now.

Still as beautiful as 90 years ago.

Happy Birthday Mom!

Thirsty Thursday

18 Jan

Are you thirsty? What are you thinking right now? I’m sure an iced cold beer or a frosty margarita pops into your head. Well, if it didn’t before, it certainly did now, didn’t it? Admit it!

Today, when I was thinking about a thirsty Thursday, I immediately thought of being thirsty for knowledge. Quite a different picture. What I am picturing is my eighty-five year young mother. She has lived through the Great Depression, seen several wars come and go, and voted for many presidents. She has loved and lost loved ones, but has never lost her lust for life. For over eighty-five years, she has been thirsty.

My sweet mother is a sponge. She soaks up every ounce of energy in the atmosphere. Mom reads constantly, watches endless television, writes letters, draws, paints, and has excellent skills on the computer. Only a few weeks after receiving a new iPhone, she was texting, sending photos, and surfing the Internet. Thirsty never looked so good!


SHE walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies,
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meets in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellow’d to that tender light 5
Which Heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair’d the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress
Or softly lightens o’er her face, 10
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek and o’er that brow
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow, 15
But tell of days in goodness spent,—
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent.

Lord Byron
