  • Remembering 2014

    2014 was a big year of transitions for me and my family. My oldest son, who had moved back home after a severe injury a few years ago, got his own place and has now established housekeeping with the lovely lady in his life. My 2nd oldest son made the transition from teenager to 20-something […]

  • Forgiveness and Trusting God in All Situations

    Over the last year I have come to understand the concept of forgiveness. You see, my oldest son was shot in the face a year ago yesterday in a mugging. It was one of the hardest days of my life. Never have I been so scared and so full of faith all at the same […]

  • The reason why…

    I’ve been feeling very down, disgruntled, depressed and disorganized lately. Just occurred to me the reason why, it’s been weeks since I started my day with Scripture.

Several years ago, I tried selling Tupperware and Avon, but found that direct sales just wasn’t my cup of tea. Besides, I found so much stuff that […]

  • My kiddos!

    This is the picture from Christmas 2007. We have taken a family photo like this in front of the tree every year since my oldest was having his first Christmas. It is so neat to see how they have changed through the years. The gentlemen in the picture are, l. to r. Joe, Mike, Zack, […]

  • The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of…

    Do you remember that Carly Simon song that talked about the stuff that dreams are made of? I always loved that song, and being a mom was what my dreams were made of! Well, here I am! Right in the middle of my 32-year-long “mom adventure”! That’s 18 years for the youngest to get “grown“, […]
