Pineapple Bandits…

     It happened again. Most people don’t realize it takes two years (at least) from the time a pineapple top is planted till it flowers and grows a pineapple. I’ve grown a few, then last year a thief gnawed one clean off the stem and…

The Great Exchange…

     Sometimes we bring home something that doesn’t work out as expected. Maybe it’s clothing that just didn’t fit right after all. Maybe it’s a new plumbing piece that wasn’t the right shape. Sometimes it’s food that had gone bad but we didn’t know…

He Is…

     Today is…a day to remember. Just a couple thousand years ago most of the world went about not knowing. The most life changing event ever was unfolding. Sadly crucifixion was not uncommon. But only men had been crucified. This time the One to…

Inspire…

     Officially spring is only nine days away. March winds are blowing, Easter dresses are showing up in stores. Its awakening time… Butterflies are flitting in and out, around here things are yellow with pollen, and you can feel the earth waking up once…

     A nine hour drive to the hospital. Anxious thoughts surrounded the miles. The sky was already dark pulling into the parking lot even though it was only 5:30. Bitter cold surrounded me as I stepped out. How does one say goodbye while still…

This Life…

     There are times that mark a life – when hurricanes came and turned our lives upside down, when a loved one died, when 9/11 changed everything… Reminders – life here is never static, always changing, growing us…temporary. Sometimes we try to go back – back to…

Touching…Marvelous…

     Watching babies once they find their hands is too fun – everything to the mouth. They don’t just want to hold the toy, the dog’s ear, their mom’s hair – they want to taste it, make it their own. I’ll never forget my ten month…

What’s A Daddy to do?

     My mother always used to say “Anyone can be a father, it takes someone special to be a daddy.” She should know – she was born in the height of the depression to a seventeen year old mom, adopted when she was almost two…
