Mother’s Day was certainly unique this year due of the COVID-19 pandemic. For me, the week leading up to Mother’s Day was interesting as it was full of video interviews and preparations for various opportunities to share my story. I recorded an interview with a local pastor (and friend of mind) for his Mother’s DayContinue reading “My Week of Interviews – And Sharing One with You!”

Assault with a deadly pair of socks.
I’m not sure if it’s a blessing, or a curse. Maybe it’s both. I’ll just come straight out and say it. I have an unusually good sense of smell. I hate to brag. But, yes. I’ve got a good sniffer. Case in point, I have called the city gas company on several occasions alertingContinue reading “Assault with a deadly pair of socks.”
I Care About How My Kids Look During Their Sporting Events.
When we were kids, my younger brother owned a sweatshirt with words on the front that read, “It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you look playing the game.” Oddly enough, this statement was accompanied by a cartoon penguin wearing a baseball cap. Apparently this image was to help convey the message thatContinue reading “I Care About How My Kids Look During Their Sporting Events.”

Today, after three years of labor, my book has been born! (Phew!) I’m so excited to announce that my first book, Brownie Crumbs and Other Life Morsels, is now available on Amazon in paperback, and for the Kindle. You can find it here: Also, I had a book trailer made to give everyone aContinue reading “It’s My Book’s Birthday!”
Where I Want To Be.
My left hand rested on the top of the steering wheel freeing my other hand to hold the warm travel coffee mug. Through the speakers the morning weatherman projected a mix of sun and storms. Seemed about right. A new front was moving in. Late August meant the seasons were about to change. Summer wasContinue reading “Where I Want To Be.”
The five of us knelt by the couch in our family room. Our hair was blonder and our skin more tan than three months before when summer began. Now it was the night before school started back in session. The eve of routine and alarm clocks. My husband asked if I’d be the one to pray aloudContinue reading “Together.”
I’ve heard it said that no lake vacation is complete without a man-made snail habitat. Er, something like that. But I can’t argue with the saying, because it certainly rang true for us. While spending a week with our extended family, my daughters and their cousin not only discovered the snails in the shallow water ofContinue reading “Snail Spa”
Easy Does It.
I appreciated the fact that my eleven-year-old son wanted to help me put the groceries into our van from the shopping cart. What I didn’t like quite as much was when he placed a case of water bottles on top of the loaf of bread. The Sunbeam lady on the bread packaging looked a little shocked asContinue reading “Easy Does It.”
I call it the “preemptive strike.” I don’t actually say that term aloud, but I use it in my own head in order to feel like I am in some form of command as a mother. It sounds so official and impressive. The preemptive strike will look something like this. At bedtime, I will inform my son aboutContinue reading “Old News.”
