CHIPPED AND MIXED MATCHED

It was a cold winter’s night. The fierce wind blew through the bare branches of the Scarlet Oak trees as the last car pulled into the driveway of the house at 428 Adelaide Drive.

WARM-HEARTED WEDNESDAY

Do you remember the song, What the World Needs Now?  It’s a song about love; not just for one but for everyone.  I thought about that song a lot today.

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 […]
