Gratitude…

Each Christmas our family has a tradition of giving a gift to Christ in celebration of His birthday.  We do this before exchanging gifts to one another.   Through they years we have watched as our daughters have given things like a ball, and childish things from their little hearts to hearing them say as adultsContinue reading “Gratitude…”

Broken Bones, Broken Hearts and Broken Promises…

After a bit of encouragement today from a lovely group of bloggers, my mind started to once more formulate something to write. It has been three months since my last post. I broke a promise to myself to be more consistent in writing. I was determined and I did not see it through. I realizedContinue reading “Broken Bones, Broken Hearts and Broken Promises…”

Crumbs…

You know that pathetic plate of Christmas cookies that linger on your counter top on the 26th of December?  You know what I mean…  those hard sugar cookies that still look edible, but, you know you could chuck them into the woods and knock out a bear one hundred feet away?  Yes, those cookie crumbs. Continue reading “Crumbs…”

Looking Back…

In November, I had great plans for writing about our Thanksgiving visit with Little Man and his folks.  I took pictures and I may still use them and write about them, but, somehow, time flew by and nothing was written. I had a wonderful holiday season.  I was so busy making memories that I didContinue reading “Looking Back…”

Markers…

This week is Thanksgiving.  A time when we remember.  A time to point out things in our lives that we are grateful for.  A time to give thanks.

Two months, eight weeks, sixty some days, more hours than I care to figure out.  It is timeContinue reading “And time marches on….”

Once Upon A Time at Christmas… Pt 2…

Christmas Day is usually a day that I love to cook.  I try to make our meal time special, the table settings, real napkins, and Christmas china and of course, food that is much different from my normal food.  I love to plan for it and I always want it to be special. Throughout myContinue reading “Once Upon A Time at Christmas… Pt 2…”

Once Upon A Time at Christmas…

A week ago, my daughter (Little Miss’ mom) and her family arrived for Christmas.  It was the first time in a decade that we were able to spend Christmas together.  I was so thrilled!  Her sister, obviously my other daughter,  was supposed to join us, but, at the last moment, couldn’t.  We were disappointed, but,Continue reading “Once Upon A Time at Christmas…”

Memorial Day…

This weekend is the Memorial Day weekend.  A time where there are picnics and sometimes parades.    My Facebook feed has been filled the past few days with memes of Memorial Day. It is true that this weekend marks the beginning of summer, of course it does, it is the end of May and June isContinue reading “Memorial Day…”
