My Katrina Memory

I was just reminded today, that it has been nine years today since Katrina hit our southern coast. Nine years today when the lives of so many were changed forever. I remember that day. Actually, I remember the day and 2 nights before almost just as well.

Sister Madeline

As a  physical therapist, I have had the honor and privilege to meet so many folks in my life. The best thing about doing what I do is the chance to meet folks, listen to them, hear their story and have the chance to help them regain some ability that they have lost due to illness or injury, but they help me, too. They teach me. Everyday I learn from what someone has said--it might be a life lesson or a history lesson, or geography, but everyday, I learn.

Mr. Bill

Mr. Bill is a gentleman in his mid eighties whom I have had the distinct pleasure of getting to know over the last few years. I have seen his mobility decline, but, still he tries to get on his walker and walk to the end of the driveway a couple times of day to stretch his legs. Once he gets to the end of his driveway, he will stand there and look around the neighborhood to see if there happens to be someone outside who will notice him and come over and chat a few minutes.

Christmas in Little Rock in the 1960's

Every child looks forward to Christmas, the decorations, the music, the food and of course, the gifts. Well, the Boosey family was no different. We all had our
ideas of what the decorations should look like, what food to have, the music that was played and of course, we all had our idea of what gift to buy and
what gift we would like to receive.

Our family had 5 children, 4 boys and a girl, me, and I was the youngest. Now, many might say that I was probably spoiled, but quite the contrary.
 I had to hurry to keep up with the boys, if you know what I mean.
