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,...

Running into stumbling blocks?

Running into stumbling  blocks?

It seems that those always come in three‘s don’t they? Wonder why that is. Maybe we just start ‘noticing’ those stumbling blocks when one, then two hit you. Then by number three you’re like WHAT? What’s going on?? After three maybe one just starts over because one can only handle a few things at a time. So it seems that we are again hitting some stumbling blocks…or maybe I should just call them brick walls? Not sure. Sunday night my little sister spent the night with me sitting in an ER room for my husband. This has been the third time we’ve...

Father’s Day 2018

Posted by on Jun 17, 2018 | 0 comments

Father’s Day …. this one comes with bittersweet emotions, filled with sunshine and tears. The warmness of the early rays of the faithful sun peeking through a few feathery soft clouds on my cheek stir up memories of happy days with my own father in long-past days of childhood. And then just as immediately a sneaky teardrop escapes the unending well of more to come as thoughts rest on my youngest son not being here to celebrate his own special day with his two young girls. If I don’t check it quickly, the damn will break as my imagination overwhelms me ‘seeing’...

Spring…again

Posted by on Apr 10, 2018 | 0 comments

Yes…it is spring again. A renewal of life. It is just around the corner…. Well, if you feel like that proverbial corner is about a mile away – you’re not alone. Here in the middle of the country, the days are still topsy-turvey. One day 70, the next 30…..COME ON! I know they say it’s Missouri….but really??? I seriously need to see the SUN. Seriously. It seems as if the proverbial darkness outside is creeping underneath the door frames and silently swallowing up the light within. Yes, it has been a long winter….one that just doesn’t want...
