I love having friends.  It’s so nice to have someone to laugh with, to cry with, to share with and to love.  A friend is someone who is attached to another by affection or esteem.  We use terminology like “She is my best friend,” or we might say, “What kind of a friend are they?”  … Read More

We love having people over to our home for fellowship.  Many times it’s family.  I love having our family over; not because it’s easy but because of the investment.  When our grown kids come over I don’t try to impress them.  I clean the house so the little kids, better known as my Cute Kids, … Read More

Do you ever talk to yourself?  I plead guilty.  I really don’t like to admit it because when I was young I remember my mom talking to herself and I said that I would never do that.  And, here I am, all grown up and I find myself talking to myself.  Sometimes I say good … Read More

Sometimes kids trade lunches in the lunchroom at school.  It just seems that their friend has a better toy or lunch than they do.  Sometimes adults feel the same way.  The trade of an outfit, a … Read More

I love Christmas!  Growing up, I loved to wake up on Christmas morning to the smell of the gas heater and peek in the living room to see if “Santa” had come during the night.  Sure enough, he had come and delivered bunches of presents wrapped in red Santa paper.  I loved that paper.  There … Read More

I have an ongoing project in our attic; it is reorganizing the keepsake boxes from each of our children.  Each child has a different color plastic bin in which I am transferring their special belongings for storage.  As I go through the boxes, my mind takes me so many places.  A trip, an afternoon, an … Read More

What am I going to do about this situation? Where do I turn? Is there anyone who can help me? What is going to happen to me? Situations arise daily. We often don’t know what to do or where to turn. We seek counseling, think about it nonstop, and we worry. We worry about how … Read More

I enjoy teaching my “Cute Kids” about shadows. My favorite is the story of Peter Pan when he loses his shadow. You know the story. He finds it where he left it, at Wendy’s house. Wendy sews it back on and then she flies with Peter to the 2nd star to the right and on … Read More
