They do, don't they? I haven't eaten lima beans in years. I may have to change that!

That's exactly what I call her!

I hope it brings a smile along with the lump, for the love and memories I'm sure you shared with your Lucy. I treasure my time with Belle and her relative 'puppy-ness' because I know our time with them is so short. Thanks for coming by! xoxo

I think that quiet time is a 'sweet!' And being able to dig back through your photos and discovering ones you forgot you took. I look forward to seeing more of those. That's always a 'sweet' for me. :)

Eight years ago, while we were mourning the loss of our sweet Charly, a litter of puppies was born in east Texas. Whether the mom was a pure-bred who had a wild fling with a stray, or she was a mixed breed stray herself, we'll never know. We do know that a few weeks later a little black and brown...

I like the idea, although I can see how it's not for everyone. And sometimes you might outgrow a word in a few months and need another one. I like your idea of a daily word - or maybe a word of the month? Hmmm....

Yes, it sounds like you definitely need to make time for yourself! That's part of my plan - I'm not much good to anyone if I'm not taking care of myself! But it can be so tough to do that, can't it? I hope you're successful!

For the past few years, I've chosen a word to be my mascot for the year. Sort of a theme song and coach, all rolled into one word with a motivational definition that will inspire me all year (fingers crossed!) Last year it was "Believe". The year before it was "Love", and the year before that, "Embrace". This year my... Continue reading

Whether we want them or not, the New Year will bring new challenges; whether we seize them or not, the New Year will bring new opportunities. ~Michael Josephson Can you believe another year has come and gone? 2017 will be unforgettable for me in many ways. I visited Las Vegas again, thanks to the Keller Williams Family Reunion in February.... Continue reading

It's Christmas Eve. I spent most of the afternoon baking cookies and making fudge. It was my first attempt at baking gluten-free, and I have to admit, my Cyclops Cookies turned out as fabulous as ever. God bless who ever developed the 1-to-1 gluten-free flour! I finished up just in time to make it to the 5 pm Children's Mass.... Continue reading

I think it's awesome when our kids become the hosts! Pumpkin pie is my favorite, but that's really the only time I have it, too, for some reason. Probably for the best! I'm glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, too. :)

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
