No Resolutions Over Here

Every New’s Year Eve we see so many of our friends and family set New Years Resolutions only to see two weeks or a month in they have failed at them, this is ONE of the many reasons I don’t set them. First, if I’m going to set a goal for myself why wait till the end of one year and the beginning of another … Read More No Resolutions Over Here

Turning 46

I’ve not been big on celebrating my birthday in quite some time, so this year was no different. My husband is on the road for work and the house has been quieter, not that he necessarily is noisy 😉 Anyhow, as time creeps up on us as it does me I had a lot of things on my mind this birthday (June 11). I … Read More Turning 46

When are we done?

A while back I heard a conversation where one parent told another they didn’t need to give their child advice anymore because that child was now an adult. I thought about this for quite sometime and mulled it over and over in my head. Here are my thoughts: The only time we are done doing anything for our children is (1) they no longer … Read More When are we done?

Favorite Photo

Week 2 prompt for #52ancestors is a favorite photo. I thought long and hard about what I thought my favorite family photo was. This was a true inner struggle.  I first considered photos of my grandparents (either side), (below is Vera and Cecil Dyess together, Vera Dyess ) (I couldn’t locate photos of my maternal grandparents to share in time of this post)     … Read More Favorite Photo

Genealogy and Words

Over the last few years, I have slowly begun to dive into the genealogy of my family. Years ago, my mother worked an endless number of hours gathering data, researching documents, and joining organizations to learn more about our history. Not just hers or mine but that of our family! I’m blessed to have all her research even if much of it is only … Read More Genealogy and Words

Even a year later I miss her

While the title of this post gives you a clue about what this will be about – grief, loss, and love, it doesn’t tell you about the soul I miss. Rhea. Yes, my chihuahua. Its been a year since I had to let her go and be in peace but I still miss her daily. There is not a day I don’t find myself … Read More Even a year later I miss her

Having a purpose

When we are children we say we’re going to grow up and be police officers, doctors, firefighters, and more… It’s not till we are in our teens that we start to see with clearer vision what we are meant to do, not that we always listen. But as an adult, have you discovered your purpose? I must admit it has taken me a while … Read More Having a purpose

When life’s door is closed

This is an undated piece I wrote in the mid ’80’s (wow I just showed my age for real)! But it was real, it happened, and I have to share it. I was a teenager when suicide became all too real to my world. After that, I never backed down when I saw someone needed to be helped! NEVER! When life’s door is closed … Read More When life’s door is closed

Happy Labor Day

When holidays come around nothing says grilling and parades like Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and of course Labor Day. Growing up I knew that it was: 1- a day off from school! 2- we grilled something! 3- Most likely was going to see a parade in person or watch on the television. Those were the basic things that got my attention. I was a … Read More Happy Labor Day
