Without a doubt, my grandparents loved me. I never doubted it. Actually, neither did anyone else (but that might be another post)! What a gift – to be so unconditionally loved. Because I was so confident in their love, it affected me. Affected and impacted my life. These are just a few of my thoughts… Read More The Impact of Being Loved
Happy Monday morning – and the beginning of that five week “fast” until Christmas! Well, maybe not. But I do hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and gained, at least, a pound to show for all the effort that went into those meals! We did something totally different this year – and it worked! I… Read More An “Out of the Box” Thanksgiving
Friday’s Favorite Five….. and, this week, five of my favorite Thanksgiving memories – 1 – Road trips to Aunt Daisy and Uncle Rob’s house each year as a little girl.

THANKFUL THURSDAY…thinking about my upcoming anniversary and about beautiful marriages, I always go back to my parents! When my dad passed away, my folks had been married thirty-six years. Like most of us, those years included many wonderful days but there was also more than their share of real trials and difficult days, deep disappointments,… Read More Married for Life
I really enjoyed the day that we spent at National Harbor while Jordan was here! The weather was perfect…the boats were cool (and dream-worthy!) and the the company – well, perfect! Too funny – in this picture, I see the sign for Spirit Cruises which I totally never noticed before..even while we were there. I… Read More Water Dreams

Another picture warning (I’m tellin’ ya, I’m not good at this at all!), but I really wanted to include some photos with this post and have tried and tried to edit them so they are even a bit better but to no avail. If anyone can help me with the crazy glowing “pet eyes” I… Read More Pictures that Could Have Been So Cute!
Dear Jordan, Truly, I cannot seem to wrap my head around the idea that you are 20!! How is that possible??? Twenty years ago today (April 12th) you rushed into the world just a bit ahead of schedule (did you not get the memo you were due on MAY 12th??) and scared us all when… Read More Happy Birthday Jordan!!
