Happy Sunday!

After a busy fun last weekend, we need more celebration time.

Friday started with the celebration of Dr. John McKey’s life and the weekend will end with the celebration of our daughter Brittney completing her first Half Iron Man!

My first celebration was for the “other man” in my life. This other man was my children’s pediatrician and the man who helped me keep a level head as I raised my little babies. He was my mentor as well as the grandfather I never really had.

I must admit, in the beginning, I was fearful of him. But something happened during our 30-year relationship… Yes, it is called unconditional love.

During my last visit with Dr. McKey, we listened to songs and reminisced about the love of his life for 75 years, Mrs. Joyce McKey. The two songs we listened to were “My Way” and “The Shadow of Your Smile.” (Why did he pick two tearjerker songs? Well, at least I thought so as I could not stop the tears from flowing from my eyes.) I knew that would be the last time I would see him on this earth. He has now joined Mrs. McKey and I am overjoyed for him. I can only imagine their first eternal embrace.


Dr. & Mrs. McKey, would always make the time to meet with us. Here I am with my two youngest, Brittney & Blake, in 2004.

Celebrating Dr. McKey’s 99th birthday at The Country Club of Orlando. Still loves his fried foods and me.

Love never ever dies…  It just changes form!










The celebration continued with a dinner party celebrating two more loves… My husband Robert & “Mi Hermana” Julie as I honored both with a homemade birthday dinner.

And now, we wait for Brittney to finish her 1st Half Iron Man this morning!

It is amazing to me how anything that is celebrated can bring the emotion of joy, even when the celebration is difficult. Ultimately where there is joy, there is also love.


I am still excited about all last week’s shows… Such great inspirational people who touched my life.
