Waiting with Courage

It is a rainy day. We have had a lot of rainy days the past week or so. Today I saw a huge turtle walking around the other side of the lake. And there are a lot of ducks. Go figure. We left our quarantine and traveled the other day. A deacon’s wife had passed… Read More ›

Blessings

Easter seemed strange this year. No family get togethers. No Holy Week Masses. I know I could have watched them online but I just didn’t. I think I was just plain sad. There is nothing wrong with being sad. Living in this strange new world, I think I would be crazy if I didn’t feel… Read More ›

We Are Loved

I celebrated a birthday this week. My husband made me an awesome dinner. And my son and daughter-in-law brought their 2 children over. (Don’t worry. We practiced social distancing). They made me a big poster with letters to me and their drawings. And my eldest stepson and daughter-in-law and my 3 adult grandchildren and soon… Read More ›

A Strange New World

I feel like I am living in a strange world. Like I woke up one day, and my whole world had changed. Our whole world had changed. I am so thankful that I am not sick. My husband is not sick. Neither are our children and grandchildren. I know it could all change in a moment…. Read More ›

It has taken me a long time to get back. To get back to me. My memory didn’t work right. I lost lots of weight and… Read More ›

O Happy Day!

Our new granddaughter arrived into this world early in the morning of August 24. She is beautiful. Of course.  She is our youngest son’s first child. I just burst with pride as I see him take on the role of new father so naturally. He is already in the protective mode. Right now he is… Read More ›

New Life

My husband and I lived in the same city for over 40 years. We met each other there. We got married there. We raised children there. To move to a new city at this time in our lives is not an easy thing. Not easy to leave old home or children or friends. Not easy… Read More ›

Grandpa

Update on the birds – They come everyday. All kinds of birds. Bluejays and cardinals and tiny little things I do not know the name of. Unfortunately, the squirrels come, too. Evidently, they like bird food. They really are pests. And they scare the birds, so I looked up ways of keeping squirrels away. I… Read More ›
