So Loved

I feel kind of silly because I so wanted to write daily and that lasted about a week.  Best laid plans… I’m determined to get in the habit because it helps my focus.  Hopefully, tomorrow?!? This week is my last of graduate class homework!  Yippee!  I really don’t even have time to write right this… Continue reading So Loved

It All Depends on Where You Look

Recently I went on a walk through a beautiful park.  It was almost a spring day…chilly, but still warm enough to skip the jacket.  The trees were still bare, the flowers still asleep, and the air still a little crisp. At one point, there was an overlook which provided a lovely view of the marsh… Continue reading It All Depends on Where You Look

Had You Known?

It was about this time 6 years ago when my husband left.

Today I tried for a minute…not even two…and it was a disaster. It was a wet and dreary day… Continue reading Some Quiet Please…

My quiet time is happening rather late in the day, but I’m so very thankful for it whenever it happens. Last night I was blessed to spend time with all 5 of my children to celebrate Peter’s 14th birthday!  My oldest drove down to spend the evening with us.  It was so nice to have… Continue reading Spaghetti Girl

Day 7 – Where Have All the Snow Days Gone?

I have to admit being a little disappointed that I didn’t get a call for a snow day or a two-hour delay today…it is definitely a Monday  🙂 I’m ready though and willing to start the week off well.  A little sore from my weekend of skiing – no broken bones and I didn’t fall… Continue reading Day 7 – Where Have All the Snow Days Gone?
