May it burst forth for you!!!

Julia:

Still love to read your Life’s Adventures.
It may have been the 01-year Anniversary to your Father’s passing on to another realm
But at least he had adventures in this realm to be thankful for.
My special needs child is 06-years old and lost his father a few years back when he was in his mid-40’s to complications related to cancer.
Losing a Loved One is never easy.
Find ways to Celebrate the Loved One that passed on.
Being that my child is young and does not quite understand the concept of death, each special day (Birthdays/Father’s Day/Anniversary of Passing On)…we make something special, I make a picture collage, review photographs, and talk about his father.
Put together picture collages and photo albums/scrap books of your Adventures and your writings so that your daughter may one day look back and Celebrate your Life as well as her childhood when she is an adult.

Continue to enjoy where the wind may take you.
I envy your ability to travel!
Best to you and your family.

That was a lot of cookies! I don’t think I could go up to people’s doors like that. I’d be too nervous. But you look like a natural saleswoman!

Comment on The difficulty of finding friends by John MacArthur https://www.juliaduin.com/2017/01/16/the-difficulty-of-finding-friends/#comment-110669 Fri, 10 Feb 2017 17:27:17 +0000 https://www.juliaduin.com/?p=1914#comment-110669 Hey, Julia – ran across your blog after a search for Redeemer Houston. Had no idea it had had to be pulled down. This led to a load of photographs from the 70s (Yeldall, Cumbrae, etc) and a lot of familiar but much younger faces. It’s always seemed curious to me that the older we get, the more we like to revisit a past blurred by imperfect memory.
I know how it feels to have to make new friends; I’m lousy at it so assuredly you’ll have more success. Be well. (Oh, yeah. I’m the guy who spoke to you about Richard G a few months back. Never did locate him.)

I just referred to you in a letter to our local paper (Williamson County Sun) because in teaching 4th grade students Greek math you are pushing them out of their boundaries. Texas schools do not.

Comment on Rain, rent and raising money for braces by george omalley https://www.juliaduin.com/2016/12/13/rain-rent-and-raising-money-for-braces/#comment-110501 Tue, 13 Dec 2016 19:32:27 +0000 https://www.juliaduin.com/?p=1905#comment-110501 Hope my small contribution helped; it likely won’t be the last. It would be wonderful if you landed a good newspaper job but these are hard times for the business-I know, I used to service printing equipment. Bless the two of you!

It was such an imaginative take on the original and, as you said, an easy and fun read.
