FROM MY HEART FRIDAY

When my children were little, I  enjoyed every minute with them. I loved watching them grow, witnessing their, oh so different personalities, listening to their dreams and wishes, and experiencing their loving hearts.  They were kind children who grew into even more compassionate adults. They were taught at a young age to be responsible, and each was expected to work […]

SIGHING SORT OF SATURDAY

THE SATURDAY ALMOST SUNDAY SCOOP

I loved it!  The excitement started to […]

MARVELOUS MONDAY

Today was a rainy, damp, day. A kind of day that you wish you could curl up in your bed and sleep the hours away. A day that sometimes fills our minds with the color blue. A day that can be very difficult for those facing a loss of some kind, an illness, or perhaps missing someone they love. It […]

This is a story about gratitude, compassion, laughter, and friendship, and a special secretary who brought so much to all who walked into her office. In 1992, I was hired by a local school […]

Bring on the Hope

The day started as every other day, I got up, got my coffee and turned on the news. There it was as it has been for the last year but getting more frequent, more disturbing, more of the same thing;  the candidates  stumping for votes. I turned on another news channel and listened to a newscaster talking about several murders, robberies, […]
