I love my job. Really. I am privileged to work in a Christian environment with a group of wonderful people. But the best part of it is the kids. We have 17 kindergarteners. It is a delight to see their eyes light up when they get excited. They are always wanting hugs and saying they… Continue reading Let the Little Children
Often, I have heard my sister say when asked how she is doing, “Well, I’m on the top side of the flower bed!” I agree with her most days, although there are a lot of days when I know, I KNOW!, I’d be much better off in the flower bed because my soul will be… Continue reading Six Feet Under
There are many euphemisms used in the English language when we speak. Many we say and never know where they actually come from or who said them first. Yesterday listening to the sermon at worship, our minister used ‘cakewalk’ which put my mind to wondering where in the world that term originated. I always thought… Continue reading Cakewalk

So when in one episode, the wall looked like there was a person trying to get out, I was done. There are a lot of strange things and people in this world… Continue reading Stranger Things
It is said fear is a learned behavior and can be overcome. I think most of the time we don’t remember how or why we became fearful of something. It’s the time of year we see more scary things in stores. But one thing I see all year long is a skeleton head. What is… Continue reading Scary
There are a lot of things for which I’m thankful. So many things we take for granted everyday that we don’t even think about for which we are deep down thankful! Take toilet paper for instance. I am really thankful for toilet paper. That may sound weird, but if you stop and think about it,… Continue reading Wash Your Hands, Please!
Today is my birthday. I woke up 52 years old. When we are kids, we get so excited about birthdays. I guess it’s the presents and attention we hope to receive. At what age do we start not wanting to celebrate birthdays? Maybe it’s not that we don’t want to celebrate. Maybe it’s the ‘been… Continue reading Just Another Day
