New Year’s Prayer

I received a new year’s prayer in the mail the other day that we prayed tonight. It was beautiful and well worth sharing: Lord, we pray that this New Year will bring us closer to You.Help us to truly celebrate the gifts You have graciously given us and use them to serve You and spread […]

Interesting In Common

I drove the Blazer to pick up my groceries today since the side roads were pretty icy. I recognized the gentleman who brought my order out to the car. He seemed to recognize me as well as he greeted me and started loading the back of the vehicle. He saw the “I’d rather be at […]

Continuing the Chronicles

For years my son and I have watched the Chronicles of Narnia, “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” at Christmas time. When I was at his place the other day, I mentioned it to him. He pulled out the DVD and let me borrow it. Tonight, I watched it with my parents. It was […]

A Good Team

For Christmas, I bought my son some window coverings for his new house. Today my sister came over, so I was able to steal away for a little while and headed over to my son’s to help get some of them put up. As we installed the curtain rods and hung the draperies, I was […]

Holy Families

I must admit, I didn’t feel much like a holy part of a family this morning. Things broke left and right and messes were made. I tried to help fix things and clean up messes, but I admit it was frustrating. Then we “went to church”. The priest reminded us that we celebrate the Feast […]

Grammy Blanket

Tonight I wrapped up in the super soft blanket I got from my grandkids. When I opened it on Zoom, I tried to read the poem on it to everyone, but was too choked up. My mom tried too and also was teary. Between the two of us, we were able to get through it. […]

Simply Different Christmas

When I came up the stairs this Christmas morning, the sunlight was shining directly on the manger of the nativity set. Both my parents were able to see it before it moved away. We felt like it was God’s gift to us and reminder that He is truly with us. We started the morning like […]

Low Key Christmas Eve

This Christmas Eve was very low-key, which I expect will continue into tomorrow. Our neighbors came by with treats and sang “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” from across the porch. Another friend had her son deliver a gift to the porch. We went for a little walk and enjoyed the sunshine. After dinner we […]

Music By Memory

My parents had their favorite classical radio station on for a while this evening. But after a while my mom was done listening. Music doesn’t sound the same to her through her hearing aides and she was disappointed that they weren’t playing any Christmas songs. So, she turned it off and decided to play the […]

Delivering Goodies

It was a mild day today, so I was able to get my parents out and about. It has been a couple months since we have seen our family friend/respite provider, so we made up a Christmas goodie bag and headed out to deliver. My parents stayed comfortable in the car with the windows rolled […]
