This blog is named after my dog, Dino the wonder dog. Other than that, this blog doesn’t have a lot to do with him, except that some days, when I am just too busy or too tired or have a migraine, I let Dino write my blog for me. On days when he has not taken over the computer, I write about my life – the past, the present and the future - my travels far and near and my home. I would love it if you would follow along.

Since Tuesday, my daughter
Val has been fighting the flu-bug. I went down to see her on Friday and she
just wanted me to bring her home. I don’t care how old you are, when you are sick,
don’t you just want to go to Mommy’s house?
So for the last two days, she
has curled up on my couch during the day, watching movies and sitcom reruns. I
have pretty much parked myself on the other end of the couch. Because why else
does a baby girl want to come home when she is sick if not to have Mommy on the
couch with her.
The last two nights, I have
been lying awake in my own bed listening to her cough. The poor baby. What I
wouldn’t give to take this illness away from her, even if it meant me getting
sick. I just want her to be healthy and full of life again.
Our heavenly Father looks at
us the same way. He doesn’t want us to be sick or to suffer. He wants us
healthy and happy. So much so that He sent His Son to take our illness away. We
may think that sometimes we do suffer here on this Earth, but it is nothing
compared to the pain we would endure if God hadn’t already saved us from our
Thank you Lord for being the ultimate Physician. You not
only heal our broken bodies, You heal our broken souls. Amen
It's tough seeing this beautiful child not feeling well. (This picture is from four years ago, by the way. I wouldn't dare take a picture of how she looks now.)
