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


One Tuesday afternoon our family was running errands as was the norm in the days that our kids were in elementary school.  After completing an afternoon of errands, we usually ate out.  That was a treat for all of us, especially me, since I’m the cook in the family.  This particular night my husband says, … Read More

We worked through a couple of conflicts and said, “Yes!” The trip began immediately with wonderful sights, archeological findings and biblical application … Read More


“That’s my stuff, Nana,” I hear Cute Kid # 3 say over and again. Aubrey has discovered a plastic hamburger container with a bun looking lid. She has claimed it as her space and puts small toys in it transporting them all over our house. “That is your stuff” is my response. Aubrey Grace is … Read More


Riley, our oldest grandchild, told Owen, her 1st cousin just this past week, “Owen, my heart was so sad yesterday.” I listened intently as this 5 year old shared her heart with her cousin who is 3 months different in age. How did Riley know to say, “My heart is sad?” I don’t know, but … Read More


“Dr. Nana,” I hear my Cute Kid #1 or #2 say, “My sweetheart needs you.” Role play is immediate upon hearing the voice of one of my Cute Kids. Immediately, I stop what I’m doing to take care of the need of the moment. I put concern in my voice, check the tongue, feel the … Read More
