The Other S Word

That’s right! Sleep! 😀 I managed to sleep through the night last night. I don’t think I woke up even once — if I did then I went right back to sleep. I sure hope I can do the same tonight. So in case you couldn’t tell sleep was my blessing into today.

On a side note, lots has been happening in my personal life that I really haven’t written about and with good cause. As I may have said before, I do like to keep some of my personal life — well, for lack of a better word — personal! But I’d like to share a little today/tonight because it’s still bugging me.

I received an alumni email from my university alma mater the other day. In it was mostly information that you expect to get, i.e., how much money was raised at the annual fundraiser, new grounds being broken, etc. Then came a shocker. One of my all time favorite professors, who taught me 3 classes (at least) of history, had passed away last month. When I was writing about my very good friend Micah, I should have been thinking about her. That was when she entered eternal life. She was young, too! She was only 65 (about 2 years younger than Mom)! 😯 I still remember her calling herself “Mother” when she addressed herself in my first history class with her. She loved sports, too. Oh I mention her at great length in my second part of my autobiography (which is still a work in progress)! I can’t wait to hopefully publish it and then everyone will get to know her. She is “The Other, Other S Word.” Her name was (Doctor) Sherry Schirmer or as I said earlier, how she referred to herself, “Mother Schirmer.” I suppose you could say she’s my other blessing today.

It’s just so much to bear. I can’t get over it and if only I had known, I could have attended her funeral. 😦 Oh so sad. I just have no words for it any more. Sigh! Well, guess, I’d better try to get some sleep!

God, bless every one of us (especially Dr. Schirmer’s family)!

About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at, and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 36 years young!
