The Cloud Game

Have you ever played the “Cloud Game?”  It is where you lie down on the ground, look up at the sky and find shapes and objects in the clouds. You say your shape or object out loud and the person you are playing with has to find it in the sky.

A Rainy Night

The other evening, it was pouring rain outside. It was the kind of rain that overflows the gutters and floods roads. It was about 68 degrees with no wind. The kids desperately wanted to “just feel the heavy rain” so they were sticking their hands out the door.  Hands turned into legs and that eventually […]

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. Have a wonderful day!

Thank You for Your Service!

Do you take the time to thank the people who help you in some way?  I like to think I do, but I probably don’t do it as much as I would like. A simple thank you really can brighten someone’s day.

A friend of mine has a brother in law who has been oversees […]

The Grouchy Cashier

My daughter and I went grocery shopping this afternoon. The cashier who checked us out  was probably the grouchiest cashier I have ever had. When I said “Good afternoon,” her response was “No it isn’t.” I said “Tough Day?”  Her response was a three minute tirade on how awful her job is, how she […]

The temperatures have been warming up all week and most […]

So, I have hives….but no broken glasses!

A friend of mine posted the following on her Facebok page today. I just had to share it.  Once again, children truly have wonderful ‘spectives!

“Poor Jack not only had a little crash on his bike, but he as crashed he fell into a bush that he is allergic to.  Hives everywhere he touched the […]

One Person Can Make a Difference!

After reading the following article on CNN, I wondered to myself how I would handle the same situation. Would I be strong enough or have enough energy to take such a negative event and funnel my energy to something so positive? I don’t know Mrs. Butts, but I am so proud of her. Through […]

It’s a wonderful life!!

Thirty-years ago today, I arrived at Parris Island, SC to begin the journey of becoming a United States Marine. On this significant anniversary, I took time today to reflect on the last 30 years. While there have been ups and downs, I have to say that I am incredibly grateful for all of the […]

Today I am grateful for those who have served

I am grateful to the many men and women who serve and have served our country in uniform. The young Marines, soldiers, airmen, sailors, and guardsmen who keep us safe are to be commended for their dedication and commitment to duty. A new thought for everyone. Did you know that United States Marines are very involved […]
