45 years ago…

Forty-five years ago today was the last day I was by myself.  The 17th of September, 1971, I went about my day.  Our teachers were on strike and I was at home most likely doing nothing, but reveling in the extended summer vacation the lower class-men at the high school had.  The seniors continued onContinue reading “45 years ago…”

September Thoughts…

There are certain times of the year that provoke a sense of reflection in me.  I write about these times often, for I believe that writing them down etches them in my mind more clearly. The days leading up to the 11th of September is one of these seasons.  Tomorrow is Grandparents day, a holidayContinue reading “September Thoughts…”

Thinking on Disappointment…

I have been battling disappointment.  Someone has let me down and it has blindsided me so completely I have not been able to wrap my mind around it. The truth is, that it isn’t the first time I have experienced disappointment from this person.  But, I usually can just look at the situation and getContinue reading “Thinking on Disappointment…”

There’s a spiritual lesson in there somewhere…

I try to find lessons in all areas of my life.  I think I have done this most of my adult life.  I have learned things cleaning a toilet.  I try to see things from how I think the Lord would talk to me.  I guess that means in parables, or stories.    I have aContinue reading “There’s a spiritual lesson in there somewhere…”

What I did over my summer vacation…

School is starting up again.  Some of the kids returned to school this past week, some will go back on Monday.  The schools in the area have been busy with lawns being mowed and more cars in the parking lots and signs signaling the beginning of the school year.  I know that in several ofContinue reading “What I did over my summer vacation…”

Voices from the past…

My sister has been posting some old pictures on her Facebook page.  The pictures are of our parents when they were dating or from when we were young. Each photo stirs up memories.  One of the pictures was taken at my aunt’s home.  In the comments my sisters and I each wrote where we satContinue reading “Voices from the past…”

Anticipation…

I am excited!  In two days, Little Miss will be here.  I cannot wait to see their car pull into the driveway, knowing who is sitting in the backseat waiting to be freed from her car seat.   I will be anxious to scoop her up and know that after a long drive her mama willContinue reading “Anticipation…”

Baseball movies and me…

I just finished crying my way through “Field of Dreams”  once again.  I love baseball movies, although, I do not own many of them.  They are my favorite things to watch.  They make me smile and cry and cheer. Once more I cried for the last ten minutes of the film.  I knew I would. Continue reading “Baseball movies and me…”

My life could now be a sit-com…

I sit here writing, waiting for the timer to go off so that I can disconnect the little cleaner bug for the pool.  My pants are wet and I refuse to change them just yet as I know I will get drenched doing a simple task that takes hubby five minutes and takes me aContinue reading “My life could now be a sit-com…”
