Today’s Generation

Many senior citizens are living in part on a pension which most of today’s generation will never have. I was fortunate enough to work for companies in which advancement was possible, that offered benefits packages, full-time, permanent employment, all kinds of fun perks, the whole whiz-bang. I never knew how good I had it. Why?…

Comfortable In Her Own Skin

I hope all the Moms out there had the kind of Mother’s Day that you will cherish forever. As I reflected on the day and what it really means, I thought of all the wonderful things my Mom taught me. And there are many. But the one thing I’ve learned through her and because of…

Throw Back Thursday – Blake

My grandson, Blake, is 18 today. It hardly seems possible. It’s been said that anyone who takes pictures stops time. That’s exactly what this image does for me. I shot it on his second birthday; a day filled with cake, ice cream, games, balloons and lots of toys from adoring family members. I remember it like it was yesterday….

My Christmas Card to You

I am so looking forward to Christmas this year because it will be the first time in many moons that I get to be with both of my children at the same time.  Yes, they’re grown adults now but the feeling is magical.  I am so blessed! And I am also blessed to have a…

A Simple Wish

This day 43 years ago, I gave birth to my beautiful redhead.  Her father and I raced through Christmas shopper traffic to make it to the hospital on time.  We only had about an hour to spare before she made her grand entrance.  We came home from the hospital on Christmas Eve with our new…

Little Buckaroo

Haven’t had much time to devote to blogging these days.  But I do miss all my blogger friends’ posts so I’m going to try and catch up in the near future 🙂 Today’s photo is one of my grandson when he was just a little guy.  His Mom sent this to me in one of…

Ride ‘Em Little Cowboy

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the cowboy figurine my BFF sent me.  So, one day as he was just lying on the counter next to my lucky bamboo plant, I thought he needed to have a coveted place. Hmmm … must have been mental telepathy because Ride ‘Em Little Cowboy…

It’s Good to Be Queen (well, sort of)

Do you ever wonder what your name means?  The energy behind it?  Do you wonder why your parents named you what they did?  Did you ever ask?  Well, now you can find out. Go do a Google search for “what your name means.”  You might just be amazed and delighted. When I asked my mom why…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Companionable

Since this week’s photo challenge is companionable,  I decided to post this image of hubby and his twin sister.  What better companion than a twin?  Of course I didn’t take this photo.  I wasn’t even on the planet yet – LOL! According to them, they’re about three years old here and I just think it’s…

Y-M-C-A

While cleaning out my cup cabinet this morning, I found one of my treasured possessions.  Why would an old YMCA cup be considered a treasure?  Maybe not to anyone else, but I spent some of my most wonderful life moments in the 70’s working at the YMCA in northern California.  I was the office manager…
