When I was young, Thanksgiving was my least favorite holiday. There usually weren't any cousins my age to play with and the older ones didn't like me tagging along; I didn't care for most of the food (I didn't even like pie!); and after eating, everyone just sat around watching football, so I couldn't even watch television. Now I think... Continue reading

I think that might have been the one that gave me the idea to start a list. It made me laugh when she said it because it's so true! I believe you've mentioned this one as your favorite before. Thanks for reading it again!

A tiny box in the upper righthand corner of my computer reminds me that today is my mom's 86th birthday. (As if I could forget!) However, my heart reminds me that she is so much more than those earthly years. She is free from their bonds. I feel her love around me all the time, see her in my face... Continue reading

It's a habit I've definitely had to work on to acquire, but it gets easier and easier with practice. :)

Yesterday afternoon, I stood under a gray sky in the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery paying tribute to a friend who passed away a few months ago. He had retired from the Texas Army National Guard as a Sergeant Major. We also paid tribute to his father-in-law, a retired Air Force Major, who also recently passed away. White markers surrounded...

Our weather has been in a see-saw pattern the past few weeks. Beautiful, cool, autumn-like days swoop in, making everyone smile, and then suddenly summer is back, with highs in the 90's, sticky air, and sneaky mosquitoes. But at least we're getting the promise of autumn and a reprieve from the true summer days of triple digit temps. October has... Continue reading

Thirty-six years ago tonight, I had no idea my life was about to veer onto a drastically different course when I decided to go out dancing alone. That's when I first met Tom. Looking back, it's easy to see God's hand in the whole thing, but I was just going on 'gut' feelings. Being an agnostic at the time, I... Continue reading

Thank you, Lisa! It was a good week, but I'm wondering where it went! I hope you had a wonderful week yourself. xoxo

I am totally loony over lunar stuff. This one was right before sunrise, just hanging over the horizon, huge and bright. It dropped like a rock right after I saw it. It always impresses me to see how fast it disappears, reminding me how fast this globe is spinning!

Deep in the sun-searched growths the dragonfly Hangs like a blue thread loosened from the sky. ~Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Silent Noon This morning as Belle and I finished our walk, a dragonfly buzzed close, circling and circling. It even hovered about a foot from me for a few seconds, providing me a good look at its glimmering green and turquoise... Continue reading

Thank you, Otto. My friends and family in Houston have been stuck in a nightmarish situation the past few days - and after the water subsides there will be more challenges. It's heartbreaking, but they are resilient and it's awesome to see everyone pulling together to help and serve.

Keep praying for those in Houston! My sister said they've heard tomorrow may be bad again. The clouds have blown out of here, so I'm hopeful Harvey keeps moving east. I'm already praying for Louisiana.

I watched the coverage on the news and could tell how those who viewed the total eclipse were affected by the experience. It's going to be about an hour north of us - I plan to be there! Alas, the flooding is really bad east of us and in parts of Houston. And despite warning, it appears a lot of people didn't evacuate the coast. Sigh.
