Birthday Boy


Celebrated hubby’s birthday.

Cooked him a nice lasagna meal with the family.


Hard to believe that this good-looking boy

would waltz into my life one day.

As an added bonus, gave hubby a surprise party with friends the next day.


He completes me.

He had a rugged, but kind, short-bearded face

Happy Birthday, Mark.

Circle of Life

Once upon a time, there lived a lonely girl. Intimately acquainted with an empty stomach, she carried hunger in her heart, starving for love.pic

In spite of her destitute and inner turmoil, she grew up and broke away in search of love. Eventually, she’d marry and have a family of her own, never dreaming of how they’d fill the void in her heart.


In the circle of life, her little ones grew to have little ones of their own.


She felt young at heart again, and couldn’t imagine life without them.


And the not-so-little girl wasn’t lonely anymore.


The end.

Through the Eyes of a Child


I’m ready!

So for my post this week, I celebrate my granddaughter, Grace, turning seven years old. She is a miracle, a bundle of pure joy with a remarkable outlook on life. She can make my husband’s heart melt and she still makes mine skip. Her bubbling personality and radiant smile beam brightly. She teaches us about life, and we celebrate the beauty of living through her eyes.

My birthday gift for Grace was to take her to see the Nutcracker Ballet Show. Now, I’m not much for heights, but our seats were in the nosebleed section. As I white-knuckled the guardrails and gingerly walked down each narrow step, fighting vertigo, Grace didn’t have that problem as she bounced along ahead to our seats.

With every squeal, giggle, and clap, watching the show through the eyes of a child is magical in itself. But for those who don’t realize just how much of a magical moment spending time with Grace is, you will need to go here –  Amazing Grace

This was indeed a special time. And I wanted to share this moment with my readers.
