Family Fun Day

It was a wonderful family day today. First thing this morning we went to church and my grandson was an altar server. I also got to see a good friend preach who I haven’t seen for about a year. Then we went to breakfast with my daughter-in-law’s family. In the afternoon we went to play […]

Close Friends, Lifted Spirits, Good Care

I started this morning by making cinnamon rolls with my grandson. Then I headed off to see some friends that I haven’t seen for a long time. I met my prayer group for breakfast. Of course, there were lots of hugs and tears all around as we shared our significant moments with each other. One […]

Surgery, Concern, and Prayers

I was so happy to talk with my sister today. It was good to hear her voice. She sounded more awake and aware and able to hold a little bit of a conversation. She told me the details of how the surgeon placed a rod in her lower leg from her knee to her ankle […]

Daughter-in-Law’s birthday

Today is my daughter-in-law’s birthday. It was such a blessing to get to spend it with her. He mom and niece came over for a bit bearing beautiful multi-colored flowers. She dressed the baby in a shirt that said, “Mommy’s Little Girl”. She said her husband – my son – wouldn’t like it because the […]

Meeting the Granddaughter

This Just Might Happen

I planned on taking a trip to see my new grand daughter leaving tomorrow. Today started out with a usual unexpected happening. My mom woke up with a very red eye. It had been bothering her for a couple of days as it felt scratchy and irritated. But today it looked as though someone punched […]

Mom and Me Day

They have been doing some work on the road in the complex we live in. Today they were seal coating the side right next to our home. My mom had voice therapy, so we were trying to figure out how that was going to work. I had parked the car outside of the complex in […]

Loving Choices

I started my day off a little unsettled. I allowed negative thoughts and past hurts get into my head. Once they are there, I have a hard time shaking them off. So I looked forward to going to church and praying that God would get me on the right track. Unfortunately, my parents did not […]

Letting It Out

By the time I ended my day yesterday, I had a headache, was exhausted, somewhat sad, and a little cranky. So I went out for a leisurely walk. I try not to put my problems on anyone, as I know everyone has struggles of their own. But I decided to call my sister. We chatted […]


Due to my mom’s Parkinson’s disease, her voice gets quieter and quieter. It also affects her facial and throat muscles. She has been going to voice therapy to help strengthen all of these and I often go with her and listen. Her homework for yesterday was to memorize a long joke, tell it to the […]
