Two Places…

Humans have inhabited two places: Eden and after Eden. Just a handful of millennia ago a man and a woman knew no shame, hurt, fear. They named animals, marveled at flowers and fruit, found newness at every turn. Even walked with God. “The man… Continue Reading “Two Places…”

How Many Oranges?

I live in citrus land. Did you know from the time you plant a little orange tree until it produces the first couple of oranges is at least three to four years? A sweet lady recently told me she moved here thirty-six years ago.… Continue Reading “How Many Oranges?”

Wipers…

I hear this commercial every now and then talking about how cars didn’t always have wiper blades. A small accessory on today’s cars, but without them we wouldn’t get far in a heavy rain on the highway. When the children were young, a fun treat… Continue Reading “Wipers…”

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… Continue Reading “Promise 33”

     Over the last several years many things have happened that I’ve had no control over – so when the little annoyances of life would crop up I found myself saying ‘Whatever’ – sometimes with an exclamation point, sometimes this with a sigh… While it was… Continue Reading “Whatever…”

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… Continue Reading “The Anniversary…”

Share Your Bench

  My hairdresser told me about her three year old granddaughter who liked to get really close to whoever she was talking to and stare right in their face. She was trying to teach her about ‘personal space’ when they were out in public.… Continue Reading “Share Your Bench”

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… Continue Reading “Love In The Cement…”
