H. U. G….

     Handing. Us. Grace. – every blooming flower, newborn cry, mountain meadow, crashing wave, bird in flight, frog croaking, butterfly fluttering – hugs from our Creator… I’m a hugger – I especially love hugging someone unexpectedly. I don’t understand non-huggers – cause I know…

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…

Dice & Laughter…

     If laughter is the best medicine, then twelve ladies in my neighborhood must be the healthiest around. Once a month we get together and play a silly dice game called bunko. It doesn’t take any strategy or effort – so we throw dice…

Shug…

     In case you’re not from where I’m from, ‘Shug’ is pronounced ‘Shooog’ – like sugar. In fact, it’s used in calling someone sugar in a loving way… ‘Want to go to the store with me Shug?’ ‘Come sit by me Shug.’ ‘Oh Shug, I’m…

Mailbox…

     Who doesn’t like walking down to the mailbox? Maybe yours is by your door and you don’t have to go far – or maybe yours is grouped with others and so sometimes its a meeting place… I think the postal carrier smiles whenever she/he comes…

Fresh Air…

     Time to throw open the windows and…breathe, don’t you think? First day of spring, that’s today. Time for fresh air… Changing seasons, changing us. Fresh air – like a cool, clear morning. A float down a lazy stream. A drive down a back…

Seeds of…

     Eighteen years ago I dug up a tiny sapling from beneath the huge tree in our front yard. I went to the back yard and gauged where I thought it should go (seriously I thought it was way far from the deck). Today it has reached that maturity…

L. O. V. E.

     Do you know these people? She always shows up with a baked goodie when she comes over. He always gets called upon for help with home repairs. She has an infectious laugh that warms your heart. He has a way of putting his…
