No more pits

Everything has a disclaimer and warning these days. The raisin container says, ‘may contain stems’; the olive jar says, ‘occasional pits’; entertainment has ratings, websites warn of ‘cookies’. Life seemingly doesn’t come with disclaimers or warnings. Nothing comes with a newborn telling parents this… Continue Reading “No more pits”

Open Hands

My hands are starting to reveal my age. I can still picture my mother’s hands and I adore my daughter’s hands, beautiful. Their hands and mine have changed countless diapers, cooked countless meals, and wiped up countless spills. They are hands that have cuddled… Continue Reading “Open Hands”

Together

After a week away from me, my four year old grandson hugged my legs tightly, a week was too long. My closest friend lives across the country, our times together are few, we beg for time to slow down when we get together. Looking… Continue Reading “Together”

It’s Time

Time perspective depends on age. At this point in my life, time is a precious commodity and seems to hurry by, days into weeks into months. Speedy little hands and feet see it as ‘what’s next’ – Gwammy, is it time to go to… Continue Reading “It’s Time”

Declare

It’s November. When the ‘shelter in place’ thing first happened, I thought it would be a very long year. Instead it has passed like most of life – like a vapor. Along with all the Covid stuff has been much more than we could… Continue Reading “Declare”

We spend a lot of time thinking about tomorrow. It starts young “When I grow up…”. We always think we have tomorrow, until we don’t. I spend a lot of time these days with an under four age group. The youngest, learning to walk,… Continue Reading “Your Life…”

This is the Life…

It’s different – being older. When my favorite three year old comes over and we come up with ideas of what to do next we both go full speed saying: “Let’s do it!” I think at three there is only one speed – full… Continue Reading “This is the Life…”

Just Ask…

When I was young I was teased a lot about being quiet. I came to truly dislike the ‘cat got your tongue’ phrase. I was a listener. I prefer the intimacy of relationships. There would be friends and family alike who would be surprised… Continue Reading “Just Ask…”

He Comes…

Christmas can’t be contained in a date 2,000 years ago. There was that one special Bethlehem day – but daily now is the coming. Then there’s the day you found Christ – right there with you all along. And there’s today when the next… Continue Reading “He Comes…”

Never Lost – Have GHS…

Easy access to GPS has truly changed how we get from here to there. Used to be we would listen carefully to someone’s directions, or for a longer trip we made sure we had maps. I am so impressed with the pioneers of old.… Continue Reading “Never Lost – Have GHS…”
