The Cough Medicine

My friend KJ lost her mom lost week and the funeral was on Tuesday. I talked to her today and she is holding up fairly well. This is a tight tight family with lots of love between everyone, so I have high hopes of them making it through this tough time. Peace be with you all, and rest in peace to Joy. And lots of love and healing prayers to dad too. It's funny, we took these photos last year because her husband wasn't doing so well with his diabetes, etc., and then it turns out that the photos of KJ's mom turned out to be the ones most ... heartfelt? most unexpected? most needed but unknown at the time?

Other news:

Picked up the cough syrup from the doc today. Then I swallowed a tablespoon of it. Then I lost about 4.5 hours of my life due to the "drowsy" factor. So not much from me today, or this week, or last week, but one day I will have kicked this crud. Moi's other half was in OKC and came down with it too ... so must be something nasty going around. Stay away from me, stay far away!

So here's a daisy pic from earlier in the week because I got nothing else.

Rest and relax, Pam. I'm sorry you're needing cough syrup. Mr. Boxer came home 'fussin tonight and I told him to drink bourbon. Is that bad?

It's nice you were able to capture her parents during better times. It's why what you do (taking pictures) is so lovely.
