Help needed

Posted by on Feb 15, 2017 in All Posts, Family Affair, Our Family | 5 comments

Jim & I find ourselves in the uncomfortable position of reaching out and asking for help. We prayed and sought our hearts and advise from friends and family on how to handle this – as we are of the ‘age’ and generation where you do it all yourself. However, we simply can’t and need to reach out. Jim and I bought this ‘last ever’ house three years ago and  were so blessed – we still believe that. It was a foreclosure and it was something we could financially afford as we both are retired and on...

Time to Give Thanks

Posted by on Nov 23, 2016 in All Posts, Family Affair, Our Family | 3 comments

Yes, the last of the beautiful tapestry of bronze and gold leaves have succumbed to the wintery blast after being treated to summertime temperatures just a week ago.  Winter is on the cusp of being here and I’m making plans to nest inside. Not much of a snow bunny here, I must admit. That being said, this time of the year always brings long-lost memories alive as they sneak out of their closets with every spicy smell and tattered photograph.  Each sensory prick stops me in my tracks as I relive a childhood past.  Good times, bad times...

Growing Up

My granddaughter Hannah is going on 19 and is growing up to be such a beauty! Not only on the outside, but starting from deep down inside. She is kind, and gentle and caring – although she is kind of a neat freak! She loves to lead Hebraic Dance and is looking ahead to the future when she can either instruct or help others in various locations learn how to worship the King with these ancient and beautiful...

Yes, it is almost July 4th and we are fast approaching a national holiday to remember what the founding fathers put in place for our beloved country. According to wikipedia: Independence Day of the United States, also referred to as the Fourth of July or July Fourth in the U.S., is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, by the Continental Congress declaring that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and no longer part of the...

What makes a family?

What makes a family?

Yes, what does make a family? Is it simply a group of parents and a one or more children? Is it a group of people that you feel ‘close’ to even if they are not related? What actually does constitute a ‘family’? Well, definitely, a family is parents and children – that’s a given.  You literally can not divorce your blood-related family – no matter what you think. Now that doesn’t mean you can’t distance yourself from someone in your family that is toxic to you – but you can never...

Dear friends and family. Today, my dear sister-in-law has passed from this realm to the next. Her courageous fight against this terrible disease was fought with strength, courage and a deep faith in the God she served. Her husband, Ron, and her went to the Cancer Center of America in Oklahoma last week, hoping that their involvement would turn the corner. Unfortunately, it did not. Her four children and daughter in law, along with her husband and her husband’s parents, along with many family and friends, said their goodbys and kissed...

Birthday ponderings….

Posted by on Feb 24, 2016 in All Posts, Our Family, Pams Ponderings | 0 comments

Yes…today I turn 64. That seems ludicrous…incredulous…unbelievable! But, it’s true. 64 today. So, as I sit here by myself, pondering that news, glancing out the patio door enjoying the comings and goings of the song birds….who patiently await spring as they dine on sunflower seed… an ocean of memories and thoughts flood my neutrons. Guess they are neutrons anyway. Doesn’t really matter I guess. Anyway – my feathered friends who are busily stocking up on suet and bird seed seem to glance my way,...
