Mothers Day!! A little reflection on my mama and her mom today – and honestly, not a day goes by that I don’t think of or am reminded of each of them at some point. My mama flew away to heaven too soon for us left behind. She was fifty four years young. But she… Read More Thoughts on Mom
I recently had an interesting conversation with a long time servant in the church. She has served a long time, over twenty years in one place, and then a couple of shorter stints – a little over five years in each place. We discussed being accepted. Lots is talked about in Christian circles about community.… Read More Accepting others
The past week, I was able to have a small part in a ladies retreat. The decor revolved around Journey theme, with all the vintage travel goodness we could collect! We are lucky that eclectic, vintage (old junk!), easy to collect decor is in! It is budget worthy, and fun! We hauled my old steamer… Read More Joy in the Journey

(Is that still a thing??) And my mom made corned beef and cabbage sometimes on the 17th of March. Hmmm, I could go for… Read More Being Still
Just like my mom, I too had a Thelma. I was in my twenties, she her sixties. I would say an unlikely friendship, as at its beginnings, I didn’t see that a friendship is what it would become. Thelma was a mainstay in her church, a church that I ‘married’ into. My husband, before we… Read More My friend Thelma
March!! Let’s talk about friends in March! Maybe I’m feeling nostalgic. thankful. my heart is full…. maybe it’s the February valentine effect. It’s just been on my mind a lot lately. Its funny about friendship. Doesn’t it seems like the greatest friendships are formed when we’re not looking? As a girl, I watched my mother… Read More Let’s talk Friends!
Around here…I’m still in bed. It’s been almost every day of February, and probably 25 of the 31 in January. My health is frail right now. I’m optimistic it won’t stay this way, but it might. Thankfully today’s view, off our balcony (I can look out thru the French door) is Bright. Sunshiney. Cold and… Read More All I Need
