Do you choose a word a year? Are we still doing that? I totally didn’t even remember what my word of the year of the year was for 2020 until I looked in my photos. So I’m putting this word of the year in a more prominate place. Maybe a bracelet again to remind meContinue reading “Word of the Year”
A special Sunday take away The Sunday before Christmas our church has a tradition. We dress up a little more, put on the best of our Sunday best, and we meet at our Sunday School leaders houses for a special brunch. The time is a time of sweet fellowship and time to just be togetherContinue reading “Sunday Takeaway 12-20-2020”
I always knew sending them out the door to college and life that they could fall flat on their face. In some ways I expected it. That way I was prepared if it did happen. (I don’t advise thinking this way.) How do you do this as a mom?

I recently did a Bible study that challenged us all to be mentors. There is always someone we can encourage and teach. I’ve been feeling called to share more motherhood tips lately and that can be scary. I am not and have never been the perfect mother. There are several things I wish I’d doneContinue reading “From the Empty Nest”

Last bloom. Late bloomer. Still as beautiful as the first bloom. Nothing late. Bloomed in it’s time. Beautiful bloom of fall. The bloom is fading. Still first blush of youth with the wisdom of age. Life is not half over, it’s half begun. So much beauty to behold. Still much beauty to give. Beautiful bloomContinue reading “Beautiful Blooms of Fall”
I think all the leaves have decided to fall today. Was not prepared for that! We haven’t even had a freeze yet. We’re going to have a carpet of leaves on the lawn by tonight! What’s the weather like in your area? Are you seeing amazing colors? Has the temperature dropped? We have had coolContinue reading “Fall”
I’ve been on vacation since Monday and it’s been glorious. The weather has cooperated and it’s felt like summer everyday. I soaked it up Tuesday by having coffee in the park with a friend. Wednesday Philip and I went to Lincoln and ate lunch outside and were able to shop and browse in perfect weather.Continue reading “Staycation”
