It was an exciting day around the city as the Air Force Academy graduation was today. President Biden was in town to address the graduates. And the Air Force Thunderbirds took to the sky. I had errands to run today, but saw them in formation a couple of times. There were a lot of people […]

Cemetery and Visitation

Today my mother and I made a trip out to the cemetery after her haircut. It was a beautiful day and we had not been able to get out there for Memorial Day. We were greeted by many large flags on poles at the entrance that weren’t there before. We drove around to the place […]

Staying Connected

I saw a quote today from TobyMac that I thought was a beautiful reminder of how important it is to remain connected to God: “When Job had everything, he prayed. When he had nothing, he still prayed. Prayer isn’t about your circumstance. It is about who God is.” I Found God in a reminder of […]

Blessed Friendship

Today I was so fortunate to visit with some friends from out of state. I met the woman through our church and youth ministry. Her husband was raised here, so we were able to reminisce about what the town was like many years ago. We shared challenges of caring for parents and we shared joys […]


Since my son has been away for the funeral, his roommate and girlfriend have been taking turns caring for his dog. Today was our turn. My son’s girlfriend dropped off the dog bright and early this morning. She followed me all over and was clearly confused as to what was happening. Then I had a […]

Trust In

Today I was happy to go for a walk at the park. This park had a couple of playgrounds for children and a large astroturf field. As I walked past one playground, a man was encouraging a toddler to climb on the structure, taking him through it step by step. The child accomplished the task […]

More Missions

Our friends returned from yet another mission trip and stopped by today. This time they visited Turkey and Albania. They had stories to tell like always. But what fascinated me the most was the biblical history of the place. They met a man in Turkey who gave tours of the area including cities such as […]


After my son’s family found out that his wife’s mother died, his wife and oldest son flew back East to be with the rest of her family. The younger two children stayed and finished up their school year this week. This morning I took my son and the two kids to the airport so they […]

The Gift

I was so happy that my mom was feeling better today and wanted to go the Fine Arts Center free day. We looked up the current exhibitions and found one that sounded interested called, “The Gift”. This is the description: “As scientists and artists, we are all observers of the world. We are all interpreters […]

Long Lost Friend

Today as I was running errands, I found I had some extra time. Since it was Ascension Thursday, I decided to go to Mass. Even better, I arrived early so I could go to Confession and there was no one else in line. I waited a long time, until it was just about time for […]
