Never Too Far Gone

We got a call from Carmella. She wanted to hear the thought from Mr. Rogers that was shared just a moment ago. In a trembling voice she shared that things were not going well and it felt hopeless between her and her husband. Read more...

Jumping in!

Sochi . . . They make it look so easy. I find myself watching the bobsledding thinking to myself. . .a few seconds of really hard running, then, you close your eyes for the rest of the event. I can do that. The ice skaters doing their “twizzles” look like so much fun. It looks like something I could do. Have you ever thought you could do something, then, quickly realized you were in over your head? Read more...

It's His Birthday

When I came home he looked ragged from the day. Caring for our two girls, Maggie and Della, can give you both life and suck it out of you all at once. When we met, he had just graduated from law school. He wore a bow tie on our first date. For most of our marriage... Read more...

The Wonder of Toys

The “Sit and Spin.”  It’s the one toy I remember most from my childhood. Oh, I remember others too, but the “Sit and Spin” was definitely a favorite around the age that my daughters are now.  I remember how the grip on the wheel felt, how the sticker on the seat was slightly peeling and the rumble on the seat as I began my quest for super speed.

Where's the Meat?

Do you remember the old Wendy’s Hamburgers commercial with the old woman looking disappointed at the “big fluffy bun” and cried, “Where’s the Beef?” Do you remember the look on that woman’s face? I do. I saw it on the faces of my children, my husband and our guests when we all sat down for dinner recently. Read more...
