Hello to All

It’s been awhile since I have written. Hopefully I will be here on a more regular basis.

Life has changed so very much. I have moved back to Texas and I did not bring my old life with me.

Job seeking is the primary goal at this point and has been for several months.

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer full of blessings, joy, and love.


Blessings to All

Today was a full day! So much to accomplish by 3 pm.

This was the magical time four of the kids plus two lovely ladies and one adopted Kid, were supposed to arrive.  I guess their watches were about a half an hour slow but it was well worth it!

There was so much love, laughter and magic in the air.  The magic?  The one day of year when politics are not allowed in conversation.  We laugh, we connect.  We often hear the phrase “the reason for the season”; the celebration of the birth of Christ.  What a beautiful season!

There is something magical that happens in our hearts.  We tend to forget the pain and problems of the past 12 months, focusing on love and joy. 

Tonight, my life has been blessed by the love of my children, family and friends.

No matter where you are or what you have been going through, remember the love and the joy.

Blessings to All today, tomorrow and forever!

Merry Christmas to All and a Sassy Good Night!

Memory Lane

The last few days have been interesting.  Though the days have been long, filled with little sleep, I have had an interesting journey.  Only a small portion of this tiresome move has traversed to a memory but my mind has been flooded with more than I could have ever anticipated.

As I have gone through the boxes of paperwork, photographs, and trinkets some unique memories have drifted across my mind.  Okay!  That’s not entirely true.  You know, there are the ones that pop in my head and make me laugh.  Others have jolted me out of my dreamy memories.  Some make me sad as I miss the people who are no longer with us.  I have been sad because my little babies have grown up.  I have been elated because my babies have grown up!  There are memories of camping trips, potty training puppies and house-breaking kids.  Ahhhhh…cars, they evoke memories of friends and the silly things we did.  Nothing special about any of this except they are special because they are mine.  Pictures of houses that I had long ago forgotten.  Have you ever noticed that when you see a picture of a home you once lived in, a movie of special scenes unfold before your eyes?  You feel as though you are in that very moment in time.

Gingerly, I have held some of the drawings that have hung on the refrigerator.  Some were drawn with Crayola’s and others were fit for framing.  Christmas ornaments made from tomato paste cans or popsicle stick stars with photos in the middle have created a cascade of joys in my mind.

My life has been so blessed by all those little hands, temper tantrums, tears, laughter, and an inconceivable amount of love.  I would not trade one minute of my life with my children and I thank the Lord above for all these beautiful hearts and souls He has entrusted in my care over the years.

Show Love & Support

Budweiser has some of the

most amazing commercials.

As a Mom, a friend and a wife, this has to be my favorite.

Stand behind those you love.

Remember to be Sassy and

show your unbridled support!

Why I Celebrate the 4th of July


  As a citizen of the United States of America, I feel blessed to live in a country where 56 men believed in freedom, the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness, the right to stand up to our government if the need arises as well as our other unalienable rights.  I feel gratitude and very humbled because of the heart, soul and tenacity these men showed.  It’s been said that these men literally shed tears, physically fought amongst themselves and sweat from the heat.  Every time I hear the term “blood, sweat and tears” I do think of our founding fathers.
