Named Second Chance

One of the men in my prayer group has been battling cancer and the effects of treatments for over a year now. He was hospitalized recently once again. We had our prayer group tonight and it was a pleasant surprise to see him participate. We looked at the upcoming Gospel for this Sunday. It tells […]

Humor Me

My mom’s friend came over today and brought along a couple pages of funny puns. There were several eye-rollers, but all of them made us laugh. Here is one of my favorites, “I changed my iPad’s name to Titanic. It’s syncing now.” Laughter really does feel good. I Found God today in laughter.

Earworms

My dad often comes to breakfast with a song in his head from many, many years ago in his youth. Today, one popped into my head that I learned as a child. It seemed to come out of nowhere. It was, “Mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy, a kid’ll […]

Environmental Entertainment

We returned home today after spending a few days in the beauty and serenity of the mountains. We never even turned on the TV. Instead, there was plenty to view just outside. The birds at the feeders were not as plentiful as usual, but we enjoyed identifying those who came for a visit. On the […]

Funny Memories

I was happy to get together with my sister today. As she was driving, she was thinking of all the fond memories she had at the cabin. One time, she was putting her son to bed and saw a bear on the deck. She yelled and my mom ran and got a pot and a […]

Back to Bartering

The other day I ordered groceries and went to pick them up in lieu of shopping in a crowded store, likely with people not respecting boundaries – particularly in preparation for the long weekend. I had planned on trying a new recipe for a cauliflower salad. However, in my groceries, there were 2 ingredients omitted […]

Purple Booties

Knowing that it was going to be very frigid weather here, my brother got some purple rubber booties to protect his dog’s paws. This morning he got her all layered up with a shirt, coat, and the new purple booties. Before they headed out, she walked all around lifting her feet way up off the […]

New Year Humor

We had a good – and a little humorous – start to the new year. When my dad got up, he was wearing his fancy socks with the planets on them so he could start the new year “on the right foot”. The morning was sunny and warm. My mom went out to the porch […]

Oops Moments

As you may be able to imagine, there are many “oops moments” here, with my parents being 87 and 89 and me running around trying to take care of things. For some reason, I was keenly aware of them today. Perhaps it was because my daughter-in-law shared a couple of her own “oops moments” this […]

Old But Mighty

I saw a story that was shared today about an 82-year old woman who is an award winning bodybuilder. Evidently someone broke into her home. She defended herself against the young man who was almost twice her size. She used furniture as weapons and even jumped on him when he was on the ground. By […]
