WAVE OF LOVE WEDNESDAY

When my Grandchildren come to visit, I always feel a wave of love as each one arrives.  From the time they walk up the back steps to the time they open the door, the rush I feel in my heart grows like the waves heading towards the shore. Listening to them talking about their dreams, and hopes fill my heart […]

SWEET SUNSHINE SUNDAY

Today is Sunday, and I am feeling a little better.  The day started out a little overcast and a tad warmer. However, the sun is scheduled to make an appearance sometime today, along with enough wind to make the temps feel much colder than it actually is.  It doesn’t matter since I will be in again today, recuperating.  Yesterday, I was […]

WAVE OF LOVE WEDNESDAY

 Christmas is a time for memories. It is also a time to reflect on Christmases past and looking forward to Christmas coming.  As I am getting older, memories meander in my heart like a shaken snow globe. From the time I start thinking about decorating, writing cards, and shopping, I can almost see my four adult middle-aged children as they […]

TIMELESS TALENT TUESDAY

I often hear people say, ” I don’t have any talents. I wish I could write a story. Or, I wish I could paint a picture.” The wishes for wanting a talent are endless.  However, I am here to tell you that everyone has a gift; a gift that is timeless. Skills are not always artistic, sports-related, beautiful voices, or […]
