Tell them how you feel now

There are all kinds of reasons to remember that you never know how long anyone is going to be with us. The first one that comes to mind is all the horrific mass shootings that we have in this county. You send your kid to school one day, and they don’t come home because some . . . → Read More: Tell them how you feel now

Technology

Technology is great – except when it’s not. So I just discovered that I had posted a couple blogs, only they didn’t post. So much for maintaining a consistent schedule!

I started thinking about everything we rely on technology for these days. Now I will date myself by saying (like my grandparents used to say) . . . → Read More: Technology

Talk is cheap

When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. Words do matter, but if someone’s actions contradict their words, believe what they do, not what they say. Unfortunately, it is pretty easy to say nice things, all the while doing evil things. Or it may not even be evil things, it may . . . → Read More: Talk is cheap

Parenting

I think one of the nicest feelings I get is when I realize what a wonderful son that my husband and I raised. I am pretty sure that it is in spite of us, and not because of us, but I am also sure we must have had at least a small hand in it. . . . → Read More: Parenting

Beliefs

And some are apparently fine with cheating . . . → Read More: Cheating to get your kid into a good school

Gratitude

There is a lot going on right now, things important to the entire country and things important to just me: it’s tax time, oversight is finally happening in Congress, I need to clean my oven. A lot of the events of the day seem life changing, some just mundane. It is important to me to . . . → Read More: Gratitude

I don’t understand

This world is a scary place right now. There are so many things happening that I just don’t understand. I admit that I do not understand the “I got mine, screw you” mentality that some people seem to have these days. I don’t understand the people who feel like they have to have the most . . . → Read More: I don’t understand

Snow

Snow – I love it, and I can’t get around in it. Oh, I can drive in it just fine, but I can’t walk in it anymore. I am afraid of falling, so guess I will just have to stay in.

I do have to say that the snow outside my house is beautiful to . . . → Read More: Snow
