A Time Honored Tradition….

It is almost daylight here.  I sit here wide awake, thoughts flooding my mind. Hubby, who is in San Diego, texted me about an hour ago asking me to pray for Little Miss’ daddy.  I immediately began to pray.  It was nothing serious, but it was a request given out of love for his futureContinue reading “A Time Honored Tradition….”

A Time to Look Back…

Today felt like fall.  There was a crispness in the air that made it seem like fall arrived.  It was wonderful.  The sun shone through the trees and it looked different than it did even yesterday.  Fall is making it’s appearance and I am excited. This afternoon and into this evening, as I sat watchingContinue reading “A Time to Look Back…”

The ABC’s of Moving…

Thought I would try a different approach to writing about the past few weeks… A ~ auto accident while showing our oldest daughter around our new area… nothing serious, a fender bender for them, a dented passenger door for us. B ~ broken ribs (five of them) for a good friend of ours who wasContinue reading “The ABC’s of Moving…”

Some Days Just Hit You…

Today I had an interesting day.  It started out pretty normal, making fresh juice and coffee. Hubby has been working on his car, his baby, for the past couple of weeks.  From what he is talking about, I expect it will act like a brand new car and drive incredibly well and be fast.  OfContinue reading “Some Days Just Hit You…”

Long Distance (S)Mothering….

The mother of Little Miss, my oldest daughter, is 2450.92 miles from me.  We are on the opposite sides of this country. This presents its challenges.   The love of her life is away now, serving this great country of ours.  It is his job, his privilege, and his duty.  I understand this, as I amContinue reading “Long Distance (S)Mothering….”

Wishes…

When I had my first child, we didn’t have much to spend in the way of nursery items.  We bought a crib on the base and someone gave us an old changing table that only lasted until we moved back to the states where some friends bought us a new one. The nursery  was partContinue reading “Wishes…”

A Big Loop…

Towards the end of October Hubby and I went on an adventure.  We set off with our little dog, a tent, an air mattress, and some supplies.  We went north a bit and then straight across Interstate 40.  Each night we stopped, set up our tent (not without a lot of grumbling from yours truly),Continue reading “A Big Loop…”

Cousins….

I know I have already written a post for today, but since the last time I wrote before this afternoon was September 10th, I figure one more post is not going to shatter world records. I previously wrote about going to the home where I grew up as an adult.  It has not been a destinationContinue reading “Cousins….”
