Love Hopes All Things

It is a universal truth that grandchildren bring great joy.  I have seen friends make fools of themselves when their grands were near. I’ll admit, I could not wait for that experience. However, to repeat the words of my dear mother, “You don’t want to get the cart before the horse.” When the unexpected happens,…

Bridging the Gap

Growing up in Stewart County and learning to drive in the 70’s came with the fear of driving over the old Dover bridge.

Forget What Lies Behind

Have you ever been alone in the car listening to music when a song initiates a memory?  Without question, I laugh aloud when I hear “Help Me Rhonda.” Our oldest son, Austin at the age of eight, sang to me on a Disney Cruise during the family karaoke night. He decided to change the lyrics…
