Sometimes I get the wind knocked out of me. Sometimes in a bad way and many times in a good way.... I feel like it was just a few months ago when I was wishing someone Happy Birthday on Facebook when I thought that my own birthday felt like months away. I thought that I … Continue reading 52 the 17th
This has been a summer like no other. I have worked more this year than I ever thought my body could possibly take. I sleep away the weekends because I can't move and I have missed more sunny days because of sleeping the weekend away than I care to remember. I am thankful for the … Continue reading Not Sure What to Call This One….
I look at my life in little moments and blocks of time rather than looking at the big picture. I look back at moments when I was growing and learning and it gives me a much more like-able view of who I am since I have gotten older!

When Dad was a kid the Fourth meant that they were going to "the Farm" to … Continue reading Fourth of July 1945
Harvest might just be here! Finally! A hot summer breeze and muddy fields, but we are going to attempt to get the wheat out of the field. I am anxious for my kids. I worry about the trucks on the road and the slow moving vehicles. I worry about them overheating and not drinking enough … Continue reading Give ‘Em a Break
When I am working my ''real job" and the connection goes out, it gives me a chance to pester my readers with another blog!! Today began like most. It's a well known fact that I don't sleep well, so I tend to sleep with my dad's t shirt wrapped around my head and eyes to … Continue reading 29 and Counting (and I don’t mean kids)
Last evening I had a Stephen's Ministry board supervisory meeting. During these meetings we spend the time listening to other *Stephen's Ministers discuss their work with their care receivers and their progress. In case you are wondering, none of us know "who" the others are caring for, we are sworn to absolute confidentiality, so details … Continue reading Destination….Faith–don’t read if you don’t have Any!!
