WELCOME HOME, AUNT EMMA

Skyler was my Great Grandson. He was born on July 1, 2016. He was a handsome baby boy with eyes that melted my heart. I remember holding him in my arms and falling in love.  Twenty-nine days later, this precious little boy, made his journey to Heaven. He is missed beyond words.  Welcome Home, Aunt Emma is the 30th letter […]

EMMA MARY, OUR SPECIAL ANGEL

It is early Saturday morning, today is the day, looked at the clock, got up, drank coffee, washed up, got dressed, combed hair, coat on, husband started the car, got in, seatbelt on, ready to go, heart cracking, tears well. I am on my way to say, “Good-bye.” Quiet drive, eyes out the window, everything seemed the same, the sun […]

DEAR LORD HEAR MY PRAYER

It was early Monday morning when I got the call. A frantic call. A call that would change and break my heart. The caller, my brother-in-law, short words; she is in the ambulance, they can’t revive her. That was all.  “They can’t revive her.”  Stunned, what was happening? My youngest sister? No, it can’t be! Got up, wandered around in […]

SNUG AS A BUG IN A RUG SUNDAY

Today, the temperatures dropped a lot! It went from cold to warm, then to freezing temps with a real feel of minus two.  I am not afraid to say, that even in my cozy home, I was still cold.  It was a slipper socks and slippers kind of day. As I am getting older, the cold really bothers me.  Today, […]

SENTIMENTAL SWEET DAD SATURDAY

It is snowing, and I am feeling sentimental about a man who made a big difference in my life. A man who loved dogs, and living in the country. A man who believed in hard work and helping others. A man who endured illnesses throughout his life, and a man with the brownest of brown eyes. A man I am proud […]

TENDER WORDS THURSDAY

One of my favorite Proverbs is: Kind words are like honey-sweet to the taste and good for your heart. Sometimes when we are having a bad day, kind words are hard to find. Sometimes our words are driven by the emotions we are feeling at the moment. Sometimes we do not fully realize how those words can make another feel. […]

WONDERFUL PRAYER WEDNESDAY

 Today was overcast and cold but none the less pleasant. I stayed in and continued to undress, so to speak, two more of my many trees. In my Victorian home, I have many windows that bring in light, even on a gray day. As I worked in two of the rooms, I thought about the people who walked past my […]

THANKFUL TENDER TUESDAY

This morning, as I was taking down one of my trees, something grabbed my attention.  I actually walked to the window and listened. There around my bird feeder was a beautiful gathering of birds. Some were eating, and some were perched on the railing of my deck singing their little hearts out. It brought a smile to my face. And right […]

MESMERIZING MONDAY

I am not ashamed to say that I am in love with life, all of it; the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Each morning, when I get up, I thank God for giving me another day. A day to enjoy the beauty that surrounds me. A day to enjoy my loving husband. A day, to talk with my children, […]
