If only I could turn back the hands of time. I wish I had a Time Machine to take me back to Happier Healthier Younger Better Looking. I was Strong & Powerful. The World was my Oyster and I had a Bright Future. Truly My Youth equaled the Best Years of My Life.

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry?
Yes I believe so.
Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?
I really don’t like to be touched and am very uncomfortable with strange people trying to touch me. It’s like an invasion of privacy. Men will use hugging to take unwanted liberties. Really very creepy and disturbing. Yes I do hug my brother Stephen and a very few select close friends but other than those people I try to avoid all uninvited touching.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I can relate to these two brothers. My heart resonates with them. I feel the same about my brother Stephen. I am so Blessed and Thankful to have a brother like Stephen. Yes we wrestled as kids!
Like Griffin and Turner we laughed as children and we are still laughing as middle-aged adults. Stephen still loves to be near me and will come downstairs because he knows I’m camped out on the sofa while he has the bedroom. During times of stress Stephen will put his head on my shoulder. Ours is a bond that will last forever and I expect beyond this world and into the next. I see that same bond reflected with Griffin and Turner.
The van from Stephen’s Group Home Residence picked him up around 5:35. Sadness for me because the separation is so difficult to bear. Time is precious and as you get older you know that your time on this earth is getting shorter. So aging brings new priorities.
My hope and prayer is that Griffin and Turner will have many happy years together.

Stephen attended both my High School and College Graduations. It meant everything to me for him to be there and share in my special moments.
