From the Heart

Hello, it's me...posting on my blog again!  I've missed talking to you! Good thing is, I am still at the same place in my house redo as when I left, so the excitement of peeling off painted-over wallpaper is still there for you!

The past year has been the hardest one since a year in the 60's when I lost my Dad. When I think of it, how fortunate and blessed I have been for that much time to have passed with good years!!  In June of this year, I lost my best friend.  

She is actually the inspiration for my blog name 'Tomorrow at Tara'.  She was Scarlett; I was Melanie.  We loved all things Southern and considered ourselves such having grown up in Oklahoma.  We would sign off our texts and emails with "Tomorrow is anotha' day" or " Tara".  It meant for whatever our troubles were that we couldn't solve together, there was always tomorrow!  Tara represented a place of solace for us...a place of majesty, beauty and hope. 

That's what we need some :)  

So, I went to Louisiana.  It was the best thing I could have done.  Although every Live Oak and white column made my heart hurt, I have blessings beyond measure living there. They were full of healing, fun, laughter, exquisite memories and love. Life goes on without our loved ones that have passed onto Heaven.  I don't think I'll ever be over it, but our memories!!  I'm smiling now!! 

Happy Birthday, Sweetie.  I love you.

Tomorrow is anotha day...
