Made With Love By…

A corner of the closet is home to a box where special cards, crayon pictures, and glued together popsicle sticks are safely tucked away. Treasures that someday will be found and the finder will wonder ‘what on earth’ – precious to the maker at the time and forever to…

Promise 33

In a few days I will have been married to a man who said ‘I do’ and has meant it for 33 years. These days it’s hard to find someone committed for 33 minutes let alone years. But this man has stuck by my side through…

the Violas are back…

     I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t like remembering — remembering their childhood, remembering crazy things they did, remembering a loved one, remembering God’s faithfulness, remembering how things used to be… It is fun to watch the animated faces as people recall and often…

Next Year…

     Next year I will…, kind of like ‘tomorrow is another day’ from Gone With the Wind…  The Stories of Our Lives is so much more… Your story, my story, the 90 something story, sometimes even the story of a 10 year old, is…

Shiny Friday…

      I don’t do the mad rush and grab black Friday thing… Maybe I should, maybe I’m missing something. My idea of the ideal day after Thanksgiving is having my husband pull down the boxes of Christmas decorations… Its a day of multiple benefits – the everyday stuff…

Antique People…

     Antique stores are fun… I don’t know much about authenticity or values – my interest lies in the history, in the uniqueness, in the beauty (and a good deal of course)… Actually I do cringe a little when I see things I had…

The Anniversary…

     31 Years is a long time, a short time. Sweet are the memories – young years spent planning, child rearing years spent smiling, remaining years spent hand in hand… Last year the longest married couple in America celebrated their 81st anniversary – they…

X Marks the Spot…

   We walked the beach at end of day – the time when light lingers long enough, but night is not too far. Purposing to see everything the shore had to offer. Not to just walk and come back as though it were checked off…

Love In The Cement…

Some ordinary days turn extraordinary – especially when you have a dust rag in your hand… My afternoon was humming along, checking off the list: bathroom clean , floors vacuumed , laundry folded , dusting (underway). My hubby was being helpful by getting the…

Six Hours One Tuesday…

It started out being ‘let’s meet for lunch’ … it turned into a memorable day… She’s 25, I’m 55. She’s full of big plans; I’m wondering what’s the plan? Conversation goes from mundane to hysterical laughter and everything in between in a matter of…
