  • He’s starting Middle school. This little thing I used to dress in overalls with little wee sized cowboy boots and sweet little John John’s with knee socks and little white soft bottomed shoes that were a gift from Great Aunt Marilyn. He’s my buddy. I see it beginning to happen. That thing older parents talk about –you know when our littles grow up and begin to lean away from us…

  • I’m not sure why we did this---but in passing the time we decided it would be a good idea to throw a few things down on a car below. We dug for whatever we could find in the kitchen that we didn’t want to eat, and had at it. After dropping the last sardine on the car below, a woman rounded the corner and yelled up at ..

  • Although we were politely keeping to ourselves at first---We bonded instantly as we both laughed at the guy on my other side. He was snoring so loudly that our seats were vibrating before the plane took off, poor guy. That’s all it took. She began to share her story. He cheated, lied...

  • Recently, a friend of mind had one of the most interesting flights. She sat next to a guy from West Virginia who had never been on a plane until that day. He had also never seen a building taller than two stories or seen the ocean. He hunts squirrels and

  • Have you gotten your Christmas tree up yet?

    We just did. And as I look at it today, I see the years like lines on my face. . .or the notches on the kids' growth chart in their room.

  • Things looked a lot different for my husband and I a year ago. You see those curves on the edges of our mouths there?... Well, they started curving downward when we were together. I let myself focus on everything that was lacking in our life. After eating a meal with a friend...

  • One of the kids at Quinn’s Football practice 'lost his lunch' only 20 minutes in to their 2 1/2 hour practice. He cleaned himself up, laughed out loud and ran back out onto the field. Wow. I’m not sure that I could have done that at 10 years old, or at 37!

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • Ashley had been listening to SPIRIT 105.3 for only a few weeks when she found out she and her husband were going to have a baby! He was born a beautiful healthy boy!

  • Make The Call

    “I need to call my friend and have lunch, it’s been way too long!” I think this and then forget. Does this ever happen to you? I regret this happening to me all too much in the past 7 years. Since I got married and had kids life is like one big tornado! My excuses are that I’m just too tired tonight, or I can’t because this week is crazy, my kids have too many activities, or my husband works a lot and I feel guilty taking the time, plus I just can’t spend the money. Any of these sound familiar? The thing is what if that person is no longer there to call? Read More
