LIFE IS LIKE AN ONION

It was a beautiful winter day. Sunny, cold in the morning, but delightful as the sun warmed up the afternoon. Just as I opened the patio door and stuck my head out, a feeling started at my feet then meandered throughout my body touching my heart and filling me with pure peace.  I must admit that I stepped out without […]

UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN

Today is February first. It’s a new day and a new month; however, I am thinking about the last day of January. A day filled with a spectrum of emotions. Early Thursday morning… Got up early, grabbed a cup of coffee, showered, got dressed, husband warmed the car, picked up the food for later, drove on part dry, part black ice […]

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 […]

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 […]
