Childhood Memories

The days of childhood should be lived freely.

Do you have a favorite childhood memory that you would like to share?

Is there a family tradition that has remained with you into your adult life?

When it hurts to look back, and you're too scared to look ahead, just look up and that is where you will find what you are looking for.

Let's Talk About Love...

I'm in the mood to have a bit of conversation. Here are a few thoughts to ponder. I would love to hear your answers.

1) How do you define love?

2) Do you believe in love at first sight?

3) Is there a difference between loving somebody and being "in love"?

Please take a few moments to leave me a note and tell me what you think.

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then too the other, as just as fair ,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

~Robert Frost

Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain. ~Author Unknown


I love to play in the rain. I also love to see my children play in the rain.

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. ~John Ruskin

I'll be exploring the book of Proverbs over the next few weeks. I'm just feeling drawn to do this. I hope you enjoy my journey.

"My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary." ~ Martin Luther


Music is good medicine for most any sickness. Even the youngest child responds well to music.
