Lessons from Lou

This blog is about my journey through the brain tumor world with my dear husband, Lou. While not a journey I would wish on even my worst enemy, it is a journey that has enlightened and awakened me to what lies within us, and around us, each and every moment of each and every day. There are lessons here....lessons in this journey.....lessons from Lou....that I would like to share with you.

Picture of Lou (sick) and I at a party, circa 2005, long ago and faraway. I'm now a middle aged widow, trying to get my life back together. Mother of two young adult sons, living with two adult cats.

California Dreamin

Was away again for a few days. This time to sunny, hot, delightful California to visit friends. It was wonderful. Being away is good. It is hard to be places where Lou and I have been together, however. That part can be hard. But once through it, it is good to be away. Breakfast outside, wine under the stars, long walks, pool, golf...I wonder why we live in Chicago, why would ANYONE choose to live HERE when there is somewhere like THERE? I found myself asking that question often. I returned a bit healthier from all that walking and fresh fruit, only to now find myself bundled up with a blanket, keeping the couch warm in front of the tv. So much for starting spring with healthy habits. It's easy to be "good" when its sunny, warm and fun. It's hard when its cold, gray, and lonely. Tomorrow is the first day of spring. Only maybe 3 more months or so until we have California type days. Hope I can hold out. Back to the blanket and couch. It's still winter after all.
