New Car

My mom and I have been talking about getting a new car for months. We have been looking for something that is easier for my mom to get in and out of, one that will hold wheelchair and walker, and would be good to take to the cabin. After much research and discussion, we decided […]

Fixed Flat

When I was getting ready to run some errands the other day, I walked into the garage and saw one of the cars had a flat tire. I was happy that my son and grandson came over and were able to take it off. They put it in the back of the other car. Mom […]

The Pitchfork

When my mom and I were out and about in the car today, we followed a flatbed pickup truck. When we came to a stop light, I noticed there was only a large toolbox in the back of the truck and a pitchfork. I pointed it out to my mom and told her how odd […]

Magic Blazer

I made a trip to the cabin today and brought my 19 year old grandson with me. He loves it up there so was happy to go along for the ride. On the way up, we stopped at the most amazing donut shop that has been there for decades. We bought half a dozen and […]

Two Near Misses

Today my mom and I left the house for an appointment. We were on the busy street by the house and heading towards a traffic light that was green. Right before we entered the intersection, a van blew the red light from the crossroad and went straight across in front of us. That scared us […]

Spared in Accident

A friend called me last night all wired. She told me the story of an accident she had been in a couple hours earlier. She was waiting to turn right onto a busy road when she saw the whole thing unfold. A car turned left across the busy road coming her direction. Another car on […]

Prayer During a Scary Situation

I woke with a start this morning, found my rosary and started praying. A few minutes after I finished, my phone rang. It was my older son. I knew right away there was something wrong. He told me he was in an ambulance going to the hospital and that he had totalled his car. He […]

Green Pick-up Truck

When my dad and I were walking to the mailbox today, we came upon our neighbor with her 2 year old grandson. He was adorable. He showed us the pick up truck that he was carrying and playing with. It was green – my favorite color and his daddy’s too. His vocabulary was impressive. As […]

Simple Joy

Aa I was running some errands, I drove by an elementary school. There were lots of children outside sitting on blankets in small groups eating their lunch. Some were sitting closer to the sidewalk. As I drove slowly by, the kids looked at me and started pumping their arms up and down in the international […]
