HE'S BEAUTIFUL---HE'S MY BEST FRIEND--AND-- HE'S MY CLOSEST CONNECTION TO GOD.

THE DAY HE CAME INTO MY LIFE WAS NO ACCIDENT. CLEARLY, WE WERE MEANT TO LOVE AND CARE FOR EACH OTHER---BECAUSE NEITHER OF US HAD ANYONE-- WE WERE BOTH ALONE--BUT I DIDN'T KNOW ANY OF THIS UNTIL I BEGAN WRITING THE DETAILS OF-- HOW CUBBY BEAR SUDDENLY APPEARED IN MY LIFE.

PLEASE VISIT "SIMPLY, SALLY" AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE TO READ ABOUT MY MIRACLE---CUBBY BEAR.

IN LOVE, ALWAYS-----SALLY.

WE KNOW ABOUT LIVING BUT--DO WE KNOW ABOUT DYING?

 

 As I mature, death becomes more real, less feared, more readily accepted. All my relatives: my grandmother, cousins, great grandparents, and parents, are buried in a small-town cemetery--- resting in a clump of pine trees--- on a Missouri hillside.

 

In 2013, I chose to spend July 4th with my father at his final resting place. Thick grass spread a soft blanket over the sleeping... as birds sang and squirrels played hide-n-seek between the headstones. Several graves displayed American flags honoring those dedicated veterans who'd proudly served their country in various wars.

An atmosphere of quiet peace and timeless memories surrounded me.  I sensed an untroubled calm--noticeably absent--in my daily life. I stayed longer than I planned.

Standing in that silent place, surrounded by those who had quietly surrendered, I realized that life offers many-worse fates-- than death.

I WAS UNABLE TO IGNORE THE WORDS THAT WERE WHISPERED IN MY EAR---WORDS THAT SAID: "YOU AREN'T FINISHED. GOD HAS MUCH-MORE FOR YOU TO DO."
