The Golden Key

You’ve been given a key that can open one building, room, locker, or box to which you don’t normally have access. How do you use it, and why?(Participating in NaBloPoMo? Head to BlogHer’s NaBloPoMo Central for more!)...more

The Wanderer

My sister is a wanderer.  She’d really like to be able to stay in one place, but timing and circumstances seem to have conspired against her.I’ve never visited either of her houses, neither the one in Idaho nor the one in California’s Bay Area.  I have been to a number of her former homes, mind you, and there were a lot of them....more

Sophia Loren was one of my favorites.“Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.” – Sophia Loren...more

Usually I make my first layaway the day after Halloween starting with the three oldest. After that, I do the little ones so they have more time to think what they want. They loved to write a few letters one to Santa (the big letter) and the other to their grandparents (one gift). My last gift to buy it will be for my husband after 31 years of marriage it’s getting difficult to obtain something special for him....more

DAY 15: LIFE IN THE GAP

 I started this poem in 2009 and finished it in 2014. Funny how some things never change: Like our utter dependence on the Author of the story…to help us live out our particular chapter. ...more
