I have one more post about Thailand. I hope it is not too much. So many of the lessons learned while on a trip such as the one I had to Thailand are, often, God taught and just for yourself. Other things can, hopefully, be used as an encouragement to others. I shared a couple… Read More Little Grandma
The dictionary says a vacation is: “an extended period of recreation, especially one spent away from home or in traveling.” I spent almost two weeks in Thailand this past month. Definitely away from home – 8,789 miles from home! It was a missions trip and there was work accomplished but, for sure, we definitely enjoyed time… Read More Thailand Photos
June is in the books – and that means my (long-awaited for and much anticipated) trip to Thailand has now come and gone. I typically like to look back over a month and notice both the blessings it included, as well as whatever lessons God may have been teaching me. However, I don’t want to… Read More Too Many Steps for an Old Lady

The Washington Capitals changed all that last Thursday evening when they won the Stanley Cup! Apparently, it was a huge deal! I say “apparently” because I missed… Read More Would Anyone Even Notice?
“I’ll fly away…..oh glory, I’ll fly away” – so goes the song in my head. Which, I’m pretty sure will be FMF just after the prompt is revealed – and on Thursday night. Maybe it was not the best idea…because I know those lyrics are going to stay with me!!?! on repeat all night. This… Read More Headed to the Clouds
Hello June – and embracing all the summer vibes!! My hydrangeas are “this close” to bursting into full bloom! This is also the first FMF post for June – the prompt for today is RETURN. Usually, my thoughts start heading in one direction right after I read the prompt, but this week my thoughts are all over… Read More When Will My Thoughts “Return” to Normal??
Well, here we are with another month in the history books – and a time to look back at May. For me, this month has been a month of preparation. Yes, May is always eventful and there were the annual graduations and picnics that follow and, of course, the mental transition to summer – even… Read More Defeating My Doubt
