The Yellow Envelope

I’ll admit it, only to you, so please don’t tell anyone. I was feeling a little down in the dumps last week. This feeling is very unusual for me. Usually, I’m very upbeat, optimistic, and am cheering others on with Pom-Pom’s in both hands.  Some of you know that I’ve been having health challenges thatContinue reading “The Yellow Envelope”

What’s your final answer?

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire was a popular TV Game Show that attracted a huge audience back in the 1990’s and early 2000’s. The game show was played by contestants answering a series of multiple-choice questions that had a dollar value. For each question they got correct, that dollar value was added to theirContinue reading “What’s your final answer?”

The Lady in the Wheelchair

There was a story going around the internet several years ago that stirred my heart. One day, a little boy wanted to meet God. He packed his suitcase, brought a bag of some drinks and cookies then started his journey. He walked a long, long way until he began to get hungry and tired. HeContinue reading “The Lady in the Wheelchair”

Take the Wheel

Our most recent trip to Florida was 2 years ago. My husband John and I love the water, the sun, floating in an inner tube on a Lazy River. As we were disembarking the plane, we were excited about our future endeavor of relaxing before John’s retirement as a United Methodist Minister, and our plansContinue reading “Take the Wheel”

Don’t stick out your tongue!

Summer evenings at camp is always something I think back upon. The peacefulness of being out in nature, away from the city noises and lights. The stars seemed more plentiful and the lightning bugs were everywhere! One evening I remember very vividly. My Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, and I had just finished dinner. Summer dinnersContinue reading “Don’t stick out your tongue!”

Davey and the Mustard Seed

Saturday mornings were my favorite time of the week. I would awaken early, before my Mom and Dad, creep down the stairs, turn on the TV with the knob on the front, change the channel with a dial to one of the three channels that we had. Then I would turn down the volume onContinue reading “Davey and the Mustard Seed”

Red Light, Green Light, and the In-Between Time

Do you remember the Red Light Green Light Game? One person was designated as the police officer. The rest of those playing would be in a horizontal line yards apart, facing the officer. The police officer would shout ‘Green Light’, and everyone started to run toward him. He shouted ‘Red Light’, and all of thoseContinue reading “Red Light, Green Light, and the In-Between Time”

Looking Expectedly

Our granddaughter, Ava, and I were looking at a word search puzzle this morning that she got in her birthday bag from us. She and her sister Harlee are with us this week and Ava will be turning 8 next week. The word puzzle is one that has letters all over the page, and youContinue reading “Looking Expectedly”

Happy Father’s Day, Dad

As a small child, I would follow my Dad around the house or yard, marching to a sing-song cadence of left, right, left, right. My Dad was a Marine through and through, and as we marched he would say some words that rhymed, but I was concerned with getting the right and left thing workedContinue reading “Happy Father’s Day, Dad”

The Tilt-A-Whirl

My favorite thing occurred for a week at the beginning of June every year, as I was growing up. The Firemen’s Annual Carnival! Oh my, there was so many trucks that would pull into Leechburg, Pennsylvania hauling trailers with rides that had to be constructed, food vendors would come from all over, there were manyContinue reading “The Tilt-A-Whirl”
