Where's the song ~~ "Don't let your daughters grow up to marry a Cowboy" ?

​​​​​​​Life is tough! Requires hard physical work, long, long days of pain, dirt, and broken fingernails.​
​Days of frigid cold & scorching heat; through the dust & mud; daybreak into the darkness of nite~~​
​the heart & body becomes toughened & weathered replicating leather!​
​A forever constant factor for a real Cowboy's Wife is tons of sweat, oceans of tears and a constant 'drought' in the wallet!​
​​​​​​​​​IF​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ she wants to spend anytime at all with her Cowboy, she must do as he does, you become partners!​
​​​​​​Kick off your boots, grab a cup of coffee, sit back and envision yourself in my life!​
​... It really isn't that bad! There are many rewards to be had to make it a great lifestyle! ...​ ​​​​​​​

The Older We Get...

...Life happens/changes too fast!

I'm still here...just in a "zone"...forgive me, for I know this will pass.
I've been busy creating that "special project" for our son's return from the mid-east in March, and with the time quickly approaching for the one year 'anniversary', if that is what one calls it, of my worst day ever....my Dad's passing...on my "watch".....my emotions are a bit like being on a roller coaster!
With these thoughts and feelings sitting on the verge of ????, I got word last week of the passing of one of my favorite ladies...a blogger, an artist, a writer.....and an incredible woman! She was only 50 and up until the few weeks before passing, one would never have known she was ill. Her heart, her zest for life and her inspiration was bigger than anyone's I know! She sent me several pieces of her artwork from the UK a few years ago, and I will cherish them for ever. When I got the email from "her"....I was so excited to open it.....only it wasn't from her! But her daughter.
Losing my Dad....and now a very dear friend, I feel such an emptiness in my life....
Yet...I feel so blessed and happy that they filled my heart, my life and my mind with priceless treasures I can carry with me each and every day!

It is a hard time right now...and my Mom is having a tougher time...so I will be here sporadically, for awhile. I will head over to Mom's shortly, to hopefully help her through these weeks....and what would have been their 64th Anniversary.....the same day as Dad passed.

(Don't give up on me....I need you all in my life too!)
