Try To Remember.....

"Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh so mellow
Try to remember that kind of September
When grass was green and grain so yellow....

A September day at Kimberly's Point with my mother.
Bless her!

Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a young and callow fellow
Try to remember and if you remember
Then follow--follow, oh-oh."
Try to Remember, Lyrics by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt

A random fellow at Riverside Park.
He used his wheelchair to reach the water.
Bless him!    

Remembering 10 years later....
9/11 World Trade Center Memorial
Green Bay, WI 



  1. So so tender and sweet, my friend. I don't know that we ever get used to seeing our mothers sitting alone. Bless her, and bless her sweet sweet daughter. Something about fall makes everything seem so dear.

  2. Such a lovely day to be out enjoying the air and the water and all good things!
    Have a great weekend!!

  3. Donna, what a beautiful picture of your Mother, Also, I'm remembering the lighthouse wasn't that area (if I remember right) called the point? Lots of good memories there.:)

  4. Great choice of verse. Your mother looks lovely my friend.

    Hope she and you are both doing well.

    So nice to see you blogging again. We are always here for you my friend.

  5. Lovely photo of your Mom. I hope that you both are finding a place of comfort and peace in each other as you share your fondest memories.

    May God bless and keep you both.

  6. I do remember that song quite well. Enjoyed the photos a great deal!

  7. What a blessing to have your mom in your blog! Seems like you were appreciating the good things in life, today.
    We visited the lighthouse in Racine a couple years ago and I love it.
    Great spot for photos and memories. I had no idea that Green Bay had a memorial like that, it is awesome.
    I almost forgot to tell ya---

    GO BEARS!!!

  8. Hi my dear..... God bless you, USA and all the world.... I know that ten years ago evyone in the world lost something....hugs, Flavia

  9. September is one of my favorite months, with perfect blue sky days and perfect temps. But we've been cloudy and cool all week, darn it!

  10. What a lovely place to visit with your mother, Donna. I hope the two of you enjoyed your time together and were able to share some special memories. It's good to see your Mom's smile.

    In the midst of all the sad memories yesterday and the different ceremonies of remembrance, I couldn't help but also feel some pride--pride that America has moved on and that tragedy can unite us as fellow Americans, no matter our differences.

  11. Lovely post for the month and day, a perfect song. A great gift to enjoy the day with your mother. For both of you.

  12. So blessed to have your mother near, Donna ... a beautiful post!

  13. Family seems even more important after what happened 10 years ago. I hope you and your mother are OK. It looks like you shared a beautiful day out together.

  14. What a wonderful post, looks like a lovely time together! And such an important time of respect. Thank you for the photos of the memorial. I have seen it on the news, but your photos give it perspective. Makes me want to go visit.

  15. Hugs to you and I hope that you always have happy memories.
    Never forget!

  16. I have always loved that song. Enjoy every moment with your Mom and ejoy her smile.

  17. I lost my mother in August. The memories are with me always.

  18. So sweet... Love the pic of the World Trade Center Memorial...

  20. Donna, I just found your blog. What a great site you have here! i am your newest follower and I hope you will follow back! Many blessings to you!

  21. Your Mother is beautiful and I really love that song. Always have. Wonderful photos!

  22. Hi my sweet blog friend. It's been a while, I've been to so busy with my new job...that I didn't listen to my body carefully. So no I'm sick. Big flu that hit me. Recovering slowly but getting there. And therefor finally found some time to sit and enjoy al your blogs. Great to see your beloved ones. And great that you all still remember.
    Wonderful hugs and stay well my friend.

  23. Hi Donna,
    I came here to see if it's Philip or Phillip because I was writing a follow up comment to you from my grandson blog. I think I got sidetracked and didn't get it sent. I was going to comment on how big Philip is getting.

    I see your blog is still on my desktop. I enjoyed your post with your mother, water, and the lyrics to "Remember".

    I read my blog post to our grandson, and he didn't like it that I called him by his initials. I showed him your grandson's blog, and he kept asking what a coo coo kid was. He was saying it like when one says, "coo coo bird". It was pretty funny.

  24. Wonderful words today. I used that same song in college for a repeat refrain in a long poem I wrote. Wish I could figure out where I put it now that you have brought it back to mind. Have to start looking. Jack

  25. Nice to see your mom, Donna. Bless her. Now, I miss my mom more. My dad loves this song.
    Looks like it was a beautiful day.We had a storm yesterday late in the afternoon and today is so gloomy.


For you to take the time to leave a comment means a lot to me. You make my heart happy.
