Don’t Fear For Your Kids

A friend of mine shared a reflection today that really touched my heart as I think about the future of my grandchildren. I will just share the full post here. JULIE GREEN MINISTRIES – Shellie-Sullivan Clark Don’t feel sorry for or fear for your kids because the world they are going to grow up in […]

Outside Benefits

My mom and I were happy to be able to sit outside and soak up some sunshine for a while again today. The other day when we were out, she remembered when she learned about how good it is for you to be outside. She was in 8th grade. She attended a Catholic school, but […]

Family Reunited

My mom and I were talking about our neighbors’ grandson who was born premature, then got sick, but now is home. My mom talked about the baby that she had born premature. His lungs weren’t fully developed and unfortunately at that time, the medical professionals didn’t have the technology to treat infants born too early. […]

Sweetest Surprise

My mom was having a pretty difficult morning today. She didn’t sleep well and got her medication in later than usual, so she was dragging and feeling bad. Our friend came over early as normal and brought a surprise. Her daughter had a baby 3 1/2 months ago. She met her here and they came […]

Taking Flight

We have so much enjoyed watching the pair of Red-Tailed Hawks over the past few months as they built their nest on the tall pine tree in our yard and raised a single chick. During the last few weeks, the fledgling has grown considerably and we can see the difference in it every day. It […]

Saving Baby Bunny

Early this morning I heard a lot of commotion in the basement. I looked in the window well and saw a tiny baby bunny who was trying to get out. It would try to jump straight up, but only made it a few inches. It tried jumping onto the window screen and climbing up, but […]

To Be A Mother

As we celebrated Mother’s Day today, I felt very blessed to have my children, 2 of my grandchildren, my sisters and a brother here together. I am particularly grateful to be able to celebrate another Mother’s Day with my mother. I have many friends whose mother’s have passed away and they are missing them particularly […]

The Baby Shower

A few months ago, a friend announced that her daughter was expecting a baby. This would be her first grandchild. She has been keeping us up to date and we have seen photos of her the happy couple as time goes on as well as some of the 3D images of the growing baby. Those […]

St. Gerard

My mom and I started watching a DVD about holy relics from saints and holy objects. This reminded me of a conversation I had with my mom the other day. As we were filling out more paperwork, I wrote both my brothers’ full names. They both have the middle name Gerard. Obviously I have known […]
