I hope you have a grand time. It sounds like lots of fun. I've never won much playing slots, ect . We do not often go any where to gamble, though there are some places here in Fla. Enjoy the trip!!!......M

The Four K's/reviSED Sept 20 2012 (Short Story) - 11/24/2009 8:59:16 AM
Very interesting and delightful story to read,Lois! I find it interesting especially in how you preserved the memory of your family history in the names of your children. Whereas the K was once in your last name, now it is in the first names of all your children.
I also did not realize that about K-Mart.
Can't wait to read more or your stories, poems and blogs.
~ a new fan and friend of yours, Zach

That's a really cool story. I almost forgot about Kresge's. Great work.
The Four K's/reviSED Sept 20 2012 (Short Story) - 3/1/2009 5:27:20 PM
That was an interesting memoir of the birth and life of your girls and your partnership with them all. I think those nurse's were very unfair and unprofessional to allow their egos to stain an otherwise beautiful memory for you. In that respect they undid all the good will they did in helping you to have the birth. They probably had some kind of competition between them, and I am sure you were just a one in long line of people they preyed upon emotionally. I am glad you are OK, but you should never feel bad for someone else stepping out of line like that, and then putting a guilt trip on you. They should have been reported and fired.People that mean to help you, especially if they are already getting paid, have no right to put that burden on you, for you were the patient, and they were there to give to you, not the other way around. They got there reward in there paychecks!

What a wonderful story. One simple letter keeps a families legacy alive. I enjoyed reading it.
The Four K's/reviSED Sept 20 2012 (Short Story) - 8/10/2008 1:18:20 AM
Barbara Louise is actually a pretty name. My mother was named after her two nurses & unfortunately that combination was 'Gertrude Ann' -a name she never used. She always went by Pat an abbreviation of her last name 'Patterson'.
Names are fun and I can understand why you kept the 'K's alive. My father's name is Sam and he name each of children making sure their initials spelled S.A.M.
Wishing you comfort and ease throughout your days.

I really enjoyed the story! I often wondered how K Mart got their name..Thanks .. I do remember Kresges. They went by the way side as have many other stores......M

An interesting personal account, Lois. Thank you for sharing it. Love and best wishes to you,
The Four K's/reviSED Sept 20 2012 (Short Story) - 6/6/2008 6:19:43 PM
Lois this write is so beautiful I love it. Awww glad you carried out your decision to name your daughter the very name you had chosen. Yes, I surely remember Kresge's the 5&10; used go there and certainly enjoyed that as a kid. Wonderful hope you are feeling splendid today and that all is well. I feel the same way you do about my daughter she has definately been the joy in our lives and a blessing.
Continued blessings and thank you so much for sharing your words with me,

Kudos to you for k-k-k-k, Lois. Your Kresge and K-Mart connections are very ineresting too...Jerry
The Four K's/reviSED Sept 20 2012 (Short Story) - 5/16/2008 1:30:10 PM
A beautiful testimony to a family's dedication to heritage. A quality the 4 k's are most proud of in you I am certain.
The Four K's/reviSED Sept 20 2012 (Short Story) - 5/6/2008 6:41:45 PM
Wow mom, great story and you know I never knew why we all ended up our names starting with the letter K, and I don't think I ever asked, and now I ask myself why? I just thought it was something snappy you guys came up with. I just know when I got in trouble in my younger years, all four K's would be called before mine was reached. I'm glad you found this new hobby of writing. Keep up the good work! Love Krissy
The Four K's/reviSED Sept 20 2012 (Short Story) - 4/24/2008 6:05:57 PM
Everybody in our neighborhood growing up had names that began with the same letter- Stephanie, Shane, and John and Jason. It has a nice hometown ring to it. Props to you for the four K's. Interesting Story. Keep up the good work.
The Four K's/reviSED Sept 20 2012 (Short Story) - 4/21/2008 1:06:01 PM
You are a lucky lady to have your four k-k-k-k daughters. I bet they learned early not to scrach their first and last initial on a note. Blessings.
The Four K's/reviSED Sept 20 2012 (Short Story) - 4/21/2008 12:50:23 PM
Interesting write Lois. I used to enjoy going to the old Kreske 5 & 10 Cent stores located in the now defunct downtowns of our cities. Those sure were the good old days. I'd like to see people be faithful to the K Mart stores again because of what it means to our country's economy. Target isn't even an American company and Wal Mart has lost its heritage with Sam gone. Good write my friend. I'd better stop now before I climb back on my pro-American soap box once again. God bless you Lois.
The Four K's/reviSED Sept 20 2012 (Short Story) - 4/21/2008 12:43:34 PM
Great job, time heals all wounds. Now that you put it down on paper, you can file it and not think of it again. They will love this write. Love, Bonnie

Its off to a good start....Many years ago , one of our sons brought home an orange tiger kitten. My husband was not thrilled with the idea of having another cat. He kept saying he was going to throw her to the gators. She stayed with us 13 yrs till she died and he named her,,GATOR!
She was a member of our family . She and one of her sons are burried near by....Enjoy your kitty! They bring such joy.....M

You poems are very nice to read. They are heart felt and that carries through them to my heart. My condolences on you lose. I'm not sure how I would be able to get through such a thing, except I know that God would give me strength.
God sometimes appoints those who love us and special friends to help strengthen us through hard times. Keep in close contact with your friends. Enjoy that cat.

I'm a little late in reading your poem Lois , as it's now summer. I remember the winters in Vermont. It seemed they would never end! Many times we were house bound because of the frigid weather! It was easy to become bored or depressed. The poem depicts your feelings quite well....M

L O L !!! This is g r e a t, Lois !! I pretty much spend the winter
months hunkering down. Inside warm, outside cold. Inside friendly, outside mean. Inside, books and cable and a blanket, outside, a wet slip&slide, nose-about-t'fall-off. . .'cet. Might be fun to skate, but we don't get that much ice in central NC. Not to mention I am lousy at it. "Weak ankles" my excuse. Tried, like, twice. Anywaaaay, thank you for writing and
posting this gem. I'm with you, girlfrin!

Its been a cold winter this year for where i live, sick of seeing the white stuff, can't wait for warmer lighter days. A well written poem, much enjoyed.
Enjoying my computer days. (Poetry) - 2/12/2010 7:30:11 PM
Hi Lois, i envy you for experiencing winter no matter how boring it may be for you. In my country, we only have 2 seasons. The wet and dry. When it is rainy, floods come in destruction and when it is dry, it is real hot and scorches our ricefields that desperately need rain. So i much prefer the boring than the difficult. I definitely enjoyed this piece. Happy Valentine's day to you.

watch the kids having fun and remember when you used to
but don't stay home alone.....
Love & peace be with you

Oh, as for arthritis..I just came across a Citrus and Sage gel for feet (and legs) which helps me a lot...of all places, at Walmart. Maybe it would give you releif too.
The Christmas Season (Poetry) - 12/13/2009 4:46:55 PM
Lois, you truly celebrate Christmas for what it is, the birthday of Jesus Christ -- anything else that reflects the night when the gift of love began to grow among mankind is extra -- the food,the gifts and bells -- a poem from the heart of a Christian person -- may your Christmas celebration be as special as they have always been -- peace and love to you my friend -- Jon Michael

It takes a lot of time to get through a loss of a loved one, but you have made some BIG steps forward.

No words, just a heart filled with emotions.
God Bless You. Beautiful.
What? (Poetry) - 2/10/2009 5:14:41 AM
Lois, the grief will eventually pass, but you will never forget him--nor would you want to. Instead, you'll look back to the good things you shared with him while you realize he is at peace now, and you are the only one suffering. You will find a way to overcome that suffering when you let the fact that Tom would want you to be happy and at peace seep into your thoughts like a warm blanket.
Your poem puts you on the right track inasmuch as you want happiness. Now you have to choose happiness and think kindly on the past and use it as the strength to move forward one day at a time.
God bless, and may each new day give you added blessings.

What? (Poetry) - 2/9/2009 8:09:41 PM
All you can do my dear Lois is to grieve when you feel that need so desperately...cry, laugh, write, whatever...then...enjoy something you love... til the next tough moment comes along... take it one step at a time...but don't forget to keep moving forward, and keep the joy in your heart...the more you do, the easier it will be... I used to go into my shower and cry so hard, praying that God would take me too...but that was not His plan Lois... so we must keep Him in our hearts and just stay focused as much as we can on people we love, and things we enjoy doing....even the little teensie things... I want you to be happy so much... I feel your pain..but I love your heart... hugs, lindalaw

What? (Poetry) - 2/9/2009 4:41:41 PM
There are no magical formulas for grief. Each person handles them on their own timetables for better or worse and no one else has the right to demand any different of you. "You" will no when you are ready to move on with your life.
What? (Poetry) - 2/9/2009 4:15:53 PM
Lois, with all the determination in the world, one cannot escape the effects of mourning...and that is as it should be...there are stages one must go through, but once the first year is over it gets better little by little. Your heart-felt writing is always reaching out to others who may empathize with you and feel not so alone.
Happiness awaits at every turn, Lois, and if you can enjoy nature's glory, you're on your way to recovery.
Sadness will be with you, but so will be joy.
I must sound pompous and preaching -- it's just that I went into deep mourning in 2003, 2005, and 2007. Those losses are with me, relentlessly..it does take time.
Keep up the good work you do here at the den, and many prayers will be with you as well as thanks!

What is Heaven?/PLUS Who Am I? (Poetry) - 2/9/2009 3:06:00 PM
With your second poem you hit a fantastic line of thought that should intrique all of us, that your things you value and live with do a lot in defining who you are. As you seem to imply, this relates to the first poem asking what is heaven. I think heaven is in part a state of who we are not only for the after life but in our state of being now. You are uplifted in that state by the ties to your husband, but also in keeping your faith in Jesus despite your losss--Jerry

It is difficult to say 'good-bye' to those we love. Part of the healing process, I believe, until that reunion, is to remember them here in many ways. Reading your poetry helps me, and no doubt many others, through the many loses we all endure. Thankyou for taking the time,Lois, to put your life into poetry. God uses that.
ROSES AND ANGELS (Poetry) - 1/28/2009 8:28:36 AM
I did not catch it the first time I read it, but there is a depth to this poem that can be missed. The way you have uses pictures and symbolism here to communicate something that easily could have taken several thousand words to explain- is phenomenal. Thanks for speaking the language of the heart,Lois.

A wonderful trubute to your loved one.
I am very saddened by your loss of Tom, he was truly a great man.
I lost my first wife over twenty years ago.
The story about her is on the den "A Slice of a Short Life."
It took me 20 years to write, I hope you can read it one day.
Thank you for sharing.

This poem reflects the state of mind of the writer, as she projects her light out into the cosmos.
Was that glowing Halley's comet that flew by?
No, Lois J. Christiansen lit up a poet's sky!

Yes lois we must stay busy, life is fun other than work. Make a snowman, snow angels, go ice skating, throw some snowballs, and enjoy Winter. Look up a watch Spring shinning on the horizon. Thanks for beauty.

A moving, inspirational poem...
The journey sometimes places sharp turns in our road, "...forrad on, this is the way!", she says!
Stay warm, Spring will be here soon!
Love and Peace~

A lot of things going on in your world with winter, bingo, church activities, and of course, your trip to the cemetery. It's something I want to do soon because both my mom and dad passed away in January.
Sorry you lost your money at bingo...

We share a loss--my only son was brutally murdered at at 23. My parents both passed before I was 30 and I've two siblings plus numerous grandchildren (stillborn, miscarried or aborted ... 16 of them via my only daughter!).
For my sister, there were butterflies. For my son, yellow roses. For my dad, smiles from strangers. etc.
Thanks for sharing. I totally understand.

Aye, you've got the winter blues on the run, Lois! Snuggle up and spoil yourself a little, enjoy the Great Indoors with keyboard and mouse and great music playing.

Keeping busy helps you to enjoy even the winter cold days Lois. Soon Spring and then Summer will arrive and we will wonder where winter had gone. Thank you for sharing.
Newfie Hugs, Rose

I am fighting those winter blues off that people get,
By going hither and thither and not getting wet.
I think many are, right about now. Think Spring!

Lois, these musings were fun to read, altho it was so cold and you lost your money, and you ventured to the gravesite...you know Tom loves you too. You got out of the house; didn't want to stay inside and grow numb...so at least you are doing things...the music is your love, and listen to what makes you happiest...I listen to allkinds of music, loud, noisy, sweet, romantic, kid stuff too... just enjoy it...and know you are loved by all... hugs, lindalaw

Yes I sometimes think that is the only cure, for the more I stay in and try to avoid the cold and snow the more my moody swings persist. So maybe you are right...embrace the weather and life will embrace us.
