My Mr. Christmas

My Mr. Christmas

At Thanksgiving each year, memories flood into my mind of the beautiful man I call, Mr. Christmas. My Mr. Christmas was a special person all year long but from Thanksgiving Day until  New Year’s  Eve Day, he was a shining light in more ways than you can imagine.  Let’s just say that the character Clark, played by Chevy Chase, in Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation could have been cloned from my Mr. Christmas. Mr. Christmas spent hours drawing up a diagram of where he wanted to place lights on the outside of our home.  The lights were the big old-timey multicolored on green wire...

My Soulmate Love for Eternity

After marrying my soulmate Frank on May 8, 1968,  he passed from this world on January 30, 1997, due to a sudden illness. We had been married for nearly twenty-nine years at the time of his death.  Frank and I were eighteen years old when we married and only thirty hours separated the difference in our ages, so we actually grew up together. As our hearts and souls became so entwined together they became one strong thread. On our first date, Frank walked me to the front door of my parents home, told me that he loved me and that he was going to marry me.  I  looked at Frank knowing what he...

Toilet Refurbish 101, DIY Widow

        Yoga and Toilets One “thang” that I know for sure is, God did not invent the porcelain throne, man invented it.  How do I know this?  For one thang,  it is always sitting in a tight spot between a cabinet and a wall which makes it impossible to access the bolts to unloosen/tighten them or even clean the toilet. A woman would not have done this. If the toilet needs repair below are the steps I would suggest to you. 1. Pick up your deceased husband’s picture, look at it, and tell him how much you love him. 2. Ask God to make sure He supplies your...

Honeymoon & HemisFair 1968

  Waking up that first morning as Frank’s wife was surreal.  Wondering was it all a dream or reality, and then I heard Frank say, “Good Morning Mrs. L. F. Henderson, Jr.” and I knew it was real. Frank and I did what we needed to do to get dressed then repacked our suitcases so we could get a start on our first day as Husband and Wife. I should stop right here and say “thank you” with profound appreciation to my Mom and her good friend, Peggy Goodloe Fisher.  Evidently, they were feeling very naughty while I was in the shower on the day of my wedding. So...

First Separation Hurts Deeply

Frank and I arrived back to Van Vleck from our Honeymoon on May 13, 1968, which meant we needed to decide where we were going to stay.  We decided to split the time he had left of his leave staying together at our folk’s homes.  Frank would fly out for Fort Devens in Ayer, Massachusetts on May 18, 1968, but I would not be able to follow him there until June 1, 1968, the day after I graduated from High School. We spent every minute of those few days together, but it seemed like the minutes flew by too quickly then suddenly it was time to take Frank to the airport for him to fly away by...
