  • Lest I forget

    Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy is taking a short holiday break. This column first ran a few years ago.

    I have been blessed with a terrible memory.
    It’s a blessing because I don’t remember things that haunt other people with better memories. I can’t remember most of the fights I’ve had with my husband or kids, or hurtful things people have said or done.
    However, I also can’t remember people’s names or my passwords and PINs or what I went into the kitchen to do or came to the store to buy.

  • God fix this, please!

    Years ago I read about a college student in the middle of final exams, distracted and distraught because her mother was ill and she wanted to be home with her.
    The mom assured her daughter that she was fine, that she would be OK.
    After her last exam, the college student raced home, and as she walked in to see her mom, her mom opened her eyes, smiled -- and died.
    It was the day before the young woman’s 21st birthday.
    Months later, unable to cope, she begged her dad, “Daddy, you have to fix this!”

  • Cupcakes, percocet and grace

    Over the past few years, my friend Mike and I have had some rather unorthodox conversations about faith and stuff.
    Mike’s the one who once prayed that God would fix his toilet and it was fixed miraculously. He’s also the one who assured me that it’s OK to tell God when I’m angry at him since he knows it anyway and he won’t smite me with boils for being angry.
    Mike is also the one who one year ridiculously announced he was giving up pride for Lent, which I still remind him of 10-plus years later.

  • Joy to the World, just not for me

    My father took his life in October 1987. Christmas that year was very mechanical. It was a season of motions over powered by emotions.
    Every holiday and special day the next year was very painful for my mother. Specifically, who was going to get her roses for her birthday, her Easter lily or her Christmas poinsettia? There was no joy in the world.
    Sometime in the 90’s, the military changed its boot camp training. It was determined that the recruits had changed; they were no longer cocky, confident and needing to be torn down so they could be rebuilt.
