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”

Can’t Wait…

So, have I mentioned lately I don’t like change, the unexpected, surprises? I think I’m a slow learner. (Best not to mention things we don’t like.) All three of those things happened at once last week. I’m not alone, grandsons don’t like change either.… Continue Reading “Can’t Wait…”

So this is Love

The youngest grandson is a bit over one, he’s been slower to warm up to me than the others. But recently, when I enter his home or he comes to mine, he comes running, arms up – and in my embrace, his head buries… Continue Reading “So this is Love”

Comparison…

Things aren’t always what they seem. Today south Florida is holding a collective breath wondering what the hurricane passing by tonight will be like. But to look out the window right now – sunshine, breeze – you’d never know heavy rain and big wind… Continue Reading “Comparison…”

Forever…

Some moments we just wish wouldn’t end. Moments like when a three year old puts his arm around your neck and says: “Grammy I stay with you forever!” In the midst of laughter and fun come heart-felt words spoken by the innocence of childhood.… Continue Reading “Forever…”

Better His Presence…

Sometimes the most fun days are those spent sitting and laughing with someone we love. My hubby, my best friend, my children, and now grandchildren. Their presence making life sweet. Sometimes a quiet, no-interruption day complete with breezes and mountains and a good book… Continue Reading “Better His Presence…”

Inside…

Remember the old saying: ‘It’s what’s on the inside that counts’. I thought that meant how good of a person I was or should strive to be. My efforts. Then came a time when I read this: “We are all infected and impure with… Continue Reading “Inside…”

Hope Ends…

Know that saying ‘all good things must come to an end’? Like a really good book, wonderful day, reliable product, good paying job, cherished life. There will be many happy endings in this life, and many soul draining ones as well. I miss my… Continue Reading “Hope Ends…”

And the Hands That Made It…

     Recently I was challenged to set a timer for five minutes and do…nothing. To sit back and breathe and listen – to let the tension roll away and be filled for good use… I wondered during that time about things…I glanced at the beautiful… Continue Reading “And the Hands That Made It…”

Handkerchiefs?

     I have a collection… A little unusual as the use for these originally was to blow your nose… My collection started when my Nanny, a.k.a. grandmother, died and I was sent a few of her things. Some were doilies she had crocheted and… Continue Reading “Handkerchiefs?”
