On Missing a Way of Life… 31 Days of Observing…
31 Days Observing This morning I spent some time reading posts on my Reader section. There was a post from Adopting James titled “We Know Jack” (http://adoptingjames.wordpress.com/2013/10/18/we-know-jack/). It was about the movie “The Nightmare Before Christmas” (Tim Burton’s 1993 movie). It was a great post to read, but what it did was transport me to Disneyland.

Thirty years ago….
When we think of what happened a week ago we sometimes think it was a long time ago. Lately, my husband and I tease one another that we are lucky when we remember each other’s names let alone what happened yesterday. It’s not that we are that old, it’s just that we sometimes just putContinue reading “Thirty years ago….”
Houses are interesting things. You can look at them from the outside and plainly see if they are for purely show or if there is a family that resides within.

Dance of the Dragonflies….
Around my home I have several objects that were gifts from friends. Each time I see one of these, I think of the person who gave me the gift and I pray for them.

As a child my Dad would take my sisters and I to the borough where he wasContinue reading “The River…”
There’s No Place Like Home, there’s no place like home….
Daily Prompt: There’s No Place Like Home If you had the opportunity to live a nomadic life, traveling from place to place, would you do it? Do you need a home base? What makes a place “home” to you? This prompt caught my attention. I am a retired military wife. We have lived several placesContinue reading “There’s No Place Like Home, there’s no place like home….”

I am a flag-waver…
You know how you have friends on Facebook that are friends only because you know them and have spent some time with them, but are more acquaintances than friends? These are the people you schedule to only read when you want to read. I have my Facebook page divided into sections, from people we met whileContinue reading “I am a flag-waver…”
A Firm Foundation…
I have mentioned in earlier posts that we attend a church that is very small, but active. There are several months in a year that have five Sundays. June is one of them. The pastor of the church wanted to do something on the fifth Sundays a bit different. A project, something that shows what ‘church’Continue reading “A Firm Foundation…”
