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?

BABIT (Houston, TX)

On Wednesday, a fellow author reached out to be about attending the Books are Bigger in Texas Author Event being held in Houston, Texas asking if I wanted to attend. What girl could refuse a well known event, especially when she had no other plans for the weekend?! So I went. The event was held in the 1940 Air Terminal Museum and was very … Read More BABIT (Houston, TX)

An invitation to dinner

An invitation to dinner is week fours writing prompt from #52Ancestors! To imagine having any one of my ancestors, family members known or unknown to dinner is just exciting. But how does one narrow down that invitation to just one when your ancestors date back past the 1400s. That’s a lot people to choose from. Would I want the person I was closest to? … Read More An invitation to dinner

Longevity

This weeks #52Ancestors prompt is about longevity… the oldest relative you had or something along that lines. While, I know I am a day or so behind I’ve had this topic on my mind trying to determine who’d I consider. I thought of all the ones who have passed on and their lives. The ones who died young. The ones who died after a … Read More Longevity

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

24

Twenty-four… the number of days left in the year. What will you do with 24? Will you do something kind? Will you give to those in need? Will you spend time with friends you haven’t seen or spoken to in a long time? Will you see and spend time with family? Twenty-four – three weeks and 3 days until the year is gone to … Read More 24

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
