Quiet Thursday, Reflective Thursday

We had a quiet day. A good day. For me, there was a lot of reflection and thought, too. And time for silent prayer for those dear to me who are in need. Praying for Eric, his wife and children, and for the medical staff overseeing his care. Praying for my friend, Lisa, […]

Workin’ In My Home On A Wednesday

Thank you all, so much, for your sweet compliments and kind words about our porch. I am just so pleased with it, and cannot tell my husband enough what a great job he did! I just love being out there. It’s quite cool here these days, but the full afternoon sun is on the […]


Good neighbors! We’ve got ’em! I’ve bragged on my neighbors before, but they really are the best. My husband had quite a bit of extra material to return to the lumber yard, and the pieces were too long for our little utility trailer. He walked next door this morning and came back with their […]

Blessing Your Family Creatively

We had a wonderful Monday, full of lots of errands and appointments, visiting with extended family, a bit of shopping, and laughing until our sides hurt over dinner! It didn’t start out to be that sort of day, but that’s how it turned out. What a sweet day, spent with my treasured family.

The boys spent their morning, as my children […]

You All Are The Best!

You all are the best, you really are! I’ve had so many sweet messages, e-mails and comments from so many of you. And not one of you has scolded me for not posting as promised yesterday. Did you know that you guys bless me? You do, and your words are such an encouragement to […]

Not Quite At The Speed Of Light

Dani and I moved quickly yesterday. We weren’t quite moving at the speed of light, but we did work fast. We headed to town for the mega-shop around 10:30, telling the guys that we’d be home by 3:00. I walked right up to the teller’s window at the bank, took care of my transaction, […]
