Podcast Recap

From Tacoma, WA, I record a special letting go of my past identity across from my old home on Puget Sound. Comments about Day 141 from BCs Josephine, Petra and Dawny. More ponderings along the waterfront as I process how it felt saying a final good-bye to Mom and how BC Dave gave me comfort in an unexpected way. We celebrate a huge milestone with BC Jo from the UK and hear some samples of her many comments. Stéfanie from Quebec returns with a brand new Secret Topic of the Day.

The early morning view of Browns Point where I grew up


Rows of headstones with the grave digging backhoe behind

Emotional. We watch the gravediggers open my Dad’s grave in the veteran’s cemetery, so they can place my mom’s ashes in with him.


Flowers on the grave for Mom along with a small American flag to honor my dad's military service

After my parent’s grave a recovered with sod, a temporary marker was placed.

Podcast Recap

I ponder the sacrifices of our service men and women on Memorial Day. BC Rabbit’s comments from last show inspire me to think about letting go of my Racing Morning Mind and talk about how guided meditation has been working for me. Dawny presents a niece-approved round of Foolish Fun. Thank you Amazon shoppers for using the COD links to buy your products to support the show. Greetings to new BC Laura R (soon to be Laura S). My struggles with some aspects of social media and a new hashtag for us to connect – #CODBCs. Sue from the U.K. stops by to comfort me on My Motherless Day blog post. Comments from Dawny who shares a BIG milestone and BC Dave, who goes on the bravery report along with his wife, BC Kathy, for trying something new. Mark and my brave bike plans for next year’s birthday.

Sun shines brightly on the hiking path with foothills in the background. Bright blue skies and wispy clouds.

A spectacular view hiking on Memorial Day. The majesty of nature never fails to bring me some peace and sense of belonging.

Here’s the stack of prayer rocks I built on Memorial Day 2017 to honor my dad and all of the service people who sacrificed to protect our country and our freedom.

I love how my smile looks in this one. I took it immediately following the silly tongue selfie (you can see it below). Sometimes we need to be our own comedians!

Podcast Recap

House cleaning bites me in the knee, so hiking is out and the podcast rock is in! I decide to let go of expecting the worst. I tell a story about my miracle party dress. Thanks to Amy from WI, Dawny and Rabbit for their kind comments on a day that was tough for me. Many comment snippets from our old pal, BC Dave. Dawny writes a humorous response to last show. COD goes to every other week for a while.

Laurie makes a weird face with raised eyebrow and sideways tongue

I leave my pride in the fallen leaves and have a GRAND time making silly selfie faces while recording Day 137

Hear again or for the first time, Dave’s wonderful good-bye message and Audio Drama performed by pro voice actors. It starts right around the 1 hour and 40 minute Mark on Day 120. And while you’re at it, listen to the WHOLE big old long thing again, it was a SHOW OF BEAUTY – Filled with BCs, surprises and fun stuff. I think I’ll take a long walk next week and listen again myself.

Light in the Dark
Music and Lyrics by Fionna Lane

Fionna’s Blog, Fionna Sings

Light in the Dark

Well the time has come
I must move on
We have come to journey’s end
So I’ll say “goodbye” and I’ll be on my way
I will carry memories with me
And I’ll always call you “friend”
I’ve a feeling we will meet again one day

Chorus:
Thank you for loving me selflessly
You gave me strength to find what I need
We’ll be apart, but you’re always in my heart
I hope you know
You were my light in the dark

What will I do in my new life?
Gonna travel ’round the world
I’ll be anywhere I want to be
The best part is I’m livin’
And I’m brave and feeling free
And I’ll proudly say “I’m happy to be me!”

(Chorus)

Bridge:
At last I’m not scared of my tears
I let them fall
Free as the wind
Your words helped me conquer my fears
And I love you all
I love you all

(Chorus)
(Repeat chorus
