Roller Coaster Rides…

Posted by on Sep 22, 2018 | 0 comments

Is that what Life is just all about? One roller coaster ride after another? It sure seems like it; now I know why I’ve never liked roller coasters! In order for it to be called a roller coaster ride, it has to be up and down, round and round – there are no straight paths, it’s all curves. Curves and dips that make your stomach drop right out and your screams of distress just seem to ride the wind with no response at hand. I hate roller coaster rides! While my entire married life has been a roller coaster ride, one with all the usual kiddie rides in the beginning of just...

Yom Kippur… At-One-Ment

Posted by on Sep 19, 2018 | 0 comments

Yes…today is the day of being AT ONE with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords… this is the day when heaven meets earth…the spark touches the source and your essence is one with the Flame. Are you asking why? Simply put, it is because the Holy One Himself told us to….no other reason than that. But I’m not a Jew! I’m not religious like that! Seriously, lady you don’t know what you’re talking about! Neither am I, nor am I religious and it’s not me talking….it’s the Great I AM. Leviticus 16:29 mandates establishment of this holy...

Children and Parental Love

  A very wise friend of mine, Bill Bullock, a teacher and respected leader wrote the following question on FB which I couldn’t help but replying to and speculating on. It came almost immediately after reading a message my son Jim wrote to his children and wife. Here are my thoughts and I pray they encourage you.     From Bill (Rabbi’s Son) How does a good parent or grandparent teach the children he/she loves to: [1] know, love, and trust God; [2] enjoy praying; [3] delight in the Sabbath and find meaning in the Holy Days; [4] recognize that the life instructions...

It’s a wonderful thing….

When you’re grand daughters follow Torah … not just in their words, but with their heart – and their hands, well you can imagine how blessed we all feel! Our grand daughter Sierra loves to make Tzitzits….and she is offering them for a donation of $20.00. That donation will help her cover some of the expenses for her chosen career. She has chosen to serve others as a  doula ~ childbirth coach. We are so proud of her! If you’re interested in purchasing your own Tzitzits, you can check out more info at Sierra’s Tzitzits! She’s just one of the eight...

A ‘new’ normal

A ‘new’ normal

Many of you may know what that means…and have had to rearrange your lives to adjust to a different lifestyle due to circumstances or new situations. So it is for us as well. Our lives have drastically changed in the last couple of years and this new normal is nothing either of us would have chosen, but … as my son Jay would have said if he were here … ‘it is what it is, mom’. Losing that boy almost a year ago now – September 24 – still throws my heart into a tailspin and I suspect it always will. They say time heals all wounds. Not true. The scar...

Time to focus…

Posted by on Aug 10, 2018 | 0 comments

Events of the past couple of years have seemed to follow me like a black cloud…and with the end of the year fast approaching, those black clouds burst into torrents of rain every once in awhile. But…. while my heart is heavy with the date of September 24th looming like a sledgehammer ready to fall, that is NOT what my ‘bluebird gone’ would want. He would chide me, I’m sure, for sinking into a pity party and would remind me to lift up my face to the heavens and remember just WHO he is hanging out with! Jason would remind me of the good times, the loving times,...
