To Each Their Own…

This may be a rambling post, so please bear with me… Last night hubby and I watched a documentary,  Antarctica: A Year on Ice.   It had incredible photography and was so interesting.   One of the statements that most caught my attention went something like this, “I have tried to explain to my friends and familyContinue reading “To Each Their Own…”

Texts and Tiredness…

As you all know I got up early yesterday to get to the store for that early shopping for the old folks….   What I didn’t mention is that the night previous I set my alarms (yes, two of them) so that I could get up in time. When I haven’t gotten up early in aContinue reading “Texts and Tiredness…”

Thoughts on Her Birthday…

 He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, Psalm 23:3a  (New Living Translation) I have had my blog since 2013.  In the five years writing, I have only written about this woman twice on her birthday.  I just checked to make certain. I was eleven when she died. Some years her birthday warrantsContinue reading “Thoughts on Her Birthday…”

When your first kiss passes…

It was the summer of ’69.   I had always been a bit taller than most of the kids in my class.  I had nicknames like, Stilts, Stretch, Legs, Wilt through what is now known as middle school.  I didn’t mind though and actually sort of liked those names, as they set me apart from otherContinue reading “When your first kiss passes…”

TheContinue reading “Being with a sister…”

Aunt Beulah’s Fox Stoles…

Last night while not being able to go to sleep, I thought of my Aunt Beulah.  Yes, I actually did have an Aunt Beulah.  Why anyone would name a young girl Beulah is beyond me, but, I digress. Aunt Beulah was not a warm and fuzzy aunt.  You did not run to her with openContinue reading “Aunt Beulah’s Fox Stoles…”

Some days just stand out…

Today is September 27th.  September is almost over, October and the rush of the holidays will soon be upon us. But, today is a day that stands out.  49 years ago today, my Mom died.  I was 11.  It was a rainy fall morning when the alarm went off.  The kind of morning you wishContinue reading “Some days just stand out…”

Mother’s Day…

This day is often a combination of thoughts and emotions.  Watching Facebook fill up with photos of everyone and their mother, literally, is wonderful to see. The memos to mothers who are no longer living are nice to read.   These appear often with my friends, being the age we are. Mother’s Day is one ofContinue reading “Mother’s Day…”
