Happy Mother’s Day

Being a mom is a lot of hard work and some efforts aren’t appreciated until 20 years later. There are days when it’s a thankless job, but those are far outnumbered by the days when a mom’s heart is so full, it leaks out her eyes. Those are the treasured

Many Thanks

The first warm days of spring have arrived, and it’s put me in a very thankful mood. Rather than keep them to myself, I’ll share what I’m thankful for in the hope that you can find things to be thankful for as well. First, I’m thankful to Hubby’s aunt and

Wonders from the Bubble

It’s been the Year of the Unprecedented. The pandemic changed or impacted everything we did. Hubby and I have lived in our bubble so long we’re almost beginning to prefer it. It’s been long enough that I wonder if things will ever be as they were before. Here are several
