It’s the Little Things..Literally….

Another day in the days of quarantine… This afternoon hubby went out to transplant some blueberry plants.   They have been in large planters on our deck for the past couple of years and this year they were strong enough to be put into the ground.   He went out today to transplant two more bushes. AsContinue reading “It’s the Little Things..Literally….”

Sharon…

I first met Sharon when I was her brother’s secretary.  She, along with her Mom and her brother were visiting and came into the office to spend time with her brother. I confess the first time I saw the family walk into our offices I was very intimidated.  I didn’t know what to say orContinue reading “Sharon…”

Stillness…

There are many nights where I do not fall asleep,  I lay there with a parade of thoughts marching through my mind.  Sometimes these thoughts are worries or fears, sometimes they are imagination, sometimes they are memories.  Needless to say, they keep me up.  This parade, without a brass band still make noises that keepContinue reading “Stillness…”

That time of year…

Heroes…

A few years ago we watched a movie that made a huge impact on me.  I actually think of it often and am still moved by it.  The movie was “Taking Chance”, starring Kevin Bacon.  It is about a fallen soldier being taken home and the military officer who accompanied him.  I cried through theContinue reading “Heroes…”

Mid-night Ramblings…

It is after 2 a.m. as I start to write this post.  I had gone to bed a couple of hours ago and lay there, tossing, stretching, trying to get comfortable.  Nothing was working and hubby was up browsing the local Craig’s List, so, I gave up and got up. It’s amazing to me howContinue reading “Mid-night Ramblings…”

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…”
