In Her Own Words…

I have often talked about and shared my niece’s blog.  Today she posted a rewrite of her autobiography.  I hope you will take the time to read her words.  They will encourage you and lift you up.  Please stop by her blog to share your thoughts on her words.   I am so very proud toContinue reading “In Her Own Words…”

The Comfort of a Worn Quilt…

Psalm 91:4 New Living Translation (NLT) He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.   This verse in Psalms reminds me of sitting under an old soft quilt.  You know those quilts made up of many squares from different pieces ofContinue reading “The Comfort of a Worn Quilt…”

My Brother…

1 Corinthians 10:24 New Living Translation (NLT) 24 Don’t be concerned for your own good but for the good of others. I never had a brother.  I always wanted one.  Growing up with my sisters was wonderful and I cherish them, but, I saw my cousins who were, or had brothers and I envied them. Continue reading “My Brother…”

Implementing an Idea…

For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to write.  I have always loved the idea of putting thoughts together to somehow have an impact on another’s life.  I don’t know if I have ever succeeded in doing so, but, as you know, it has not stopped me. As we were leavingContinue reading “Implementing an Idea…”

Navy Family…

Military families are a unique group of people.  Separated from biological families, they have to make and become part of a new family with each duty station.  Their children have very little access to their real cousins, aunts, uncles, and even grandparents.  So, in the absence of having blood relations around, family units are formedContinue reading “Navy Family…”

Snow…

Yesterday we woke up to this.  Beautiful, isn’t it?  I love snow.  I smile when I see snow.  I turn into that child that wants to run outside all bundled up and play.  We had heard we may get snow, but, we have heard that a couple of times this winter.  Each time has beenContinue reading “Snow…”

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. Many of the things we give thanks for are situations with family, friends, people.  Activities we may have had or shared experiences that have touched us somehow. Continue reading “Markers…”

Dredging up the past…

Today was a fall day.  The sky was bright blue, but the air was crisp and there was just a general feeling of needing to be wrapped up in something comfy and staying on the couch all day long. But, that was not the plan for today.  Instead, hubby and I drove an hour andContinue reading “Dredging up the past…”

Just…WOW!…

As I have written many times, my hubby is a retired Navy man.  He served for almost 21 years and it was a great part of our life together.  I stood by and watched him re-enlist many times and each time I felt such pride well up in me.  There is just something about watchingContinue reading “Just…WOW!…”
