Spoilsport

If I had gone to the Renaissance Festival, Sis tells me I, could have gotten a massage, in the forest, from a guy in a kilt. That message reminded me how I tried several times to get my husband to dress for Halloween parties as a Scot. He was built just right for it. He had great calves and muscular...

Where Went The Normal?

After all that pouring-down rain we had a month ago, now we're as dry as a bone. The leaves on the maple tree out front are starting to scrunch up, turn yellow-brown, and fall off of the tree without even turning the beautiful fall colors that we always have in October. The cicadas don't sing... Sign in to see full entry.

A Woman With No Hair - Part II

I'm not sure whether there are more bald women these days, or whether it is just that media shows more of them. We see bald children and bald women who are temporarily bald because of cancer treatment. We see young people shaving their heads in support of them, and for other reasons. And yet, it...

A Woman With No Hair

I was visiting my son, his wife, and their four sons in Portland, OR some years back. On Sunday I went to their church with them. We sat in a pew about half-way back. The beautiful choir music and congregational singing had finished, the offering plates passed, and the sermon had begun. All was... Sign in to see full entry.

National Encouragement Day Is Almost Over For 2017

Preacher said that today is National Encouragement Day. I Google searched that and, sure enough, there it was with all kinds of ideas on how to encourage others. He is just bubbling with encouragement for others since he, and his, came through the Irma Hurricane with only a few hours of power outage... Sign in to see full entry.

A Family Together

It is aroma heaven here right now--I've been cooking Ribcage a pork loin roast and making gravy from the drippings. It smells so good and has a wonderful taste. I used a fork to pull the thing into threads and ladled some of the tasty gravy over it. He is a meat eater-- per doctor's orders. Years of... Sign in to see full entry.

Setting Goals Makes A Difference

I was reminded today that no matter one's age, no matter one's circumstances, no matter one's health, abilities, hopes, dreams, problems....one should always have goals--specific goals...life goals. It has been a long time since I have thought about goals. At 80, I have just been going along day... Sign in to see full entry.

What Can I Say? It Has All Been Said

"Matthew, my son, may you rest…rest free of torment, free of pain, free of guilt, free in the peace of God’s eternal glory… where, 'There shall be no more death. Neither shall there be any more sorrow nor crying nor pain, for all the former things are passed away'.” (Rev. 21:4) Now you are a new... Sign in to see full entry.
