At Long Last… Home…

Home is where the heart can laugh without shyness. Home is where the heart’s tears can dry at their own pace. ~Vernon Baker We lived in Downeast Maine during the last year of the 70’s and the beginning of the 80’s.  We had been married five years. There was another young mother who had aContinue reading “At Long Last… Home…”

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…”

The Women of Winter Harbor…

This week I have thought of the people we have met in our married life.  Being military, we have met so many folks and have had such a full life of being with people we never would have known if we hadn’t had being in the military in common. The one group that stands outContinue reading “The Women of Winter Harbor…”


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…”


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….”

Over three decades ago….

31 years ago today, I woke up and decided to have a cook-out.  We had friends coming over to help organize my new house and to help me out. I got up, fixed some macaroni salad, put some beans in to bake and got hot dogs and hamburgers ready for the grill. I made cherryContinue reading “Over three decades ago….”

Coming out from the Cobwebs….

When 2014 started, hubby and I both felt like this was going to be a year of change.  January was the month and it was a new year.  Fresh year.  Things were hard for us, but somehow 2014 dawned with a ray of bright hope.  We were encouraged and determined to see what great changesContinue reading “Coming out from the Cobwebs….”

Happy 2nd Little Man….

In a couple of hours I will be going to a party.  This is a party I have looked forward to attending.  Little Man is two years old today. My thoughts have gone back to two years ago often the past couple of days.  When he was carried into our lives and we saw himContinue reading “Happy 2nd Little Man….”

My Heart and Little Man…

It’s been almost two weeks since I left Little Man.  Almost two weeks of living with my heart somewhere else.  I have survived, but it is lonely. My visit with L.M. went much too fast.  He is full of life.  He laughs often, talks even more than laughing, and sings.  His current favorites, “Baa BaaContinue reading “My Heart and Little Man…”
