ALL Lives Matter…

It is early in the morning hours on June 3rd.   Yesterday all social media was flooded by black.   I really had no idea of it, I may be sheltered, or I may just hadn’t seen anything about it.   In any case, I did not participate.   Why?   Because, to me every life on this planet matters.  Continue reading “ALL Lives Matter…”

Grammy’s purse…

My daughter is married to a Navy man, which makes our Little Miss a Navy brat.  A couple of weeks ago my daughter and son-in-law had a weekend military commitment, and hubby and I went to Florida to watch our Little Miss for them. We arrived on a Wednesday and spent the next couple ofContinue reading “Grammy’s purse…”

Kindred Spirits…

Now when he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.    I Samuel 18:1 NKJV (New King James Version) In life we all have our best friends, our long time friends, our fair weathered friends.  But, if we areContinue reading “Kindred Spirits…”

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…”

Dredging up the past…

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!…”

I can’t be that old…

Yes, thisContinue reading “I can’t be that old…”

A Time Honored Tradition….

It is almost daylight here.  I sit here wide awake, thoughts flooding my mind. Hubby, who is in San Diego, texted me about an hour ago asking me to pray for Little Miss’ daddy.  I immediately began to pray.  It was nothing serious, but it was a request given out of love for his futureContinue reading “A Time Honored Tradition….”

Frozen in time: memories, root beer floats and brownies

A part of this title is a nod to a wonderful blogger at Life With The Top Down (http://fretym.wordpress.com/) and her post yesterday about a frozen ham.  Great post, but I digress. The post mentioned above talked about changes in life.  We all have them, we experience them daily for the most part.  Frequently,  weContinue reading “Frozen in time: memories, root beer floats and brownies”
