Wednesday Mornings

I go to a women’s Bible study at my church on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 a.m. I think that I have been going for almost five years, but knowing how time gets away from me, I am not sure. I love this group and I love each of the ladies in this group. When I […]

Dad…..peace

I took my Dad home to Kilspendie Kirk in Kilspendis Scotland on Sunday, September 30th, a journey that is now complete. It is no accident that everything that has happened up to this point, either in my life, or in my grief was bringing me full circle even if I didn’t know it at the […]

My mariners, Souls that have toiled, and wrought, and thought with me – That ever with a frolic welcome took The thunder and the sunshine, and opposed Free hearts, free foreheads – you and I are old; Old age hath […]

Who do you want to be??

    When I was young, high school age, I can remember the gargantuan amount of drama that seemed to surround me.  I was like any other not so normal high school kid in Western Kansas.  I drank a lot of Meister Brau with my friends and if it was a good night we might […]

Baby Surprises….

Some days I get stumped and have a difficult time writing about anything, much less writing about what might or might not interest the reader!!  I reached out on my blog site and my friend, Angie, posed this question, “What is the most surprising thing that has happened in your life?”  Well……. that question brings […]
