It was quieter here today. Hubby took the younger 2 boys to their karate competition and I stayed home with the older ones. My oldest likes to read and his brother has been obsessed with coloring recently, so they did that while I tried to ge... Read more

The kids didn't eat much candy...and they had friends to trick-or-treat with, so things were going well in spite of the cold. I enjoyed their joy with the friendly group. My bird lover even got an owl decoration, which he was thrilled with. ... Read more

What a week...I tried to be so focused on Holy Week...boundless love...amazing grace...and I found it strengthening. Choir music and Bible verses fed my soul. And yet here I am, exhausted to tears. Not because I am sad or hurt...just absolutely... Read more

So, I'm old...I grew up with a phone attached to the wall...and you had to be home to answer it...and when you were at school, you didn’t have a phone. You interacted with the people around you. Seems like a foreign concept now...sigh... I ... Read more

Today is my twelve year 'ampu-versary'--the surgery that change my life and got me back walking again. It seems strange to some that an amputation was really a blessing for me, but I was in so much pain before the surgery, so it really has been ... Read more
