Wordless Wednesday- two to make up for missing last week

Food for Thought

Just something to think about…. I was thinking today of loved ones who have passed away. This whole thought began when I felt a bit of sadness over not being able to go to the cemetery today where my son, sister, mother, stepmother, father and grandparents are buried.

Two Things I’ve Learned

I have learned two things this week and hope to elaborate on one of them later this week. 1. according to my husband I still have the WOW factor that attracted him to me when we first met, 20+ years ago and 2. My oldest daughter describes my Youth/Adult relationship as “responsible” out of three […]

So Busy

I am so busy. Well, I am not busy. Instead, I am totally distracted and having a terrible time focusing enough to accomplish anything. Thus, I look very busy, but in reality, I’m doing nothing. So many things happened in the last week, things I meant to blog about (that seemed funny at the time, […]
