This morning as Daisy and I walked along the path, much later than our usual walk time because Daisy's mom didn't even wake up until after 7:30 a.m. today, I thought to myself "I just want things to go back to normal". But the very next thought... Read more

First, I want to thank each and every one of my dear Spark friends for your kind words and encouragement. Yesterday was one of the most challenging days I've had. I've been in pain before (knee replacement surgery, or any surgery for that matt... Read more

Today I was more worried than I've been in a long time. I have been checking in with Lauriellen every day but today she called me - about 8:00 a.m. She still isn't feeling well. Did I tell you all that she had a C-section and last week had to... Read more

I had quite an interesting deja vu moment today that I thought I would share. First a little background information. My mom had one sister and they were very close, so our families grew up as one large family with 4 parents and 5 children. I ... Read more

The most wonderful thing to be grateful for is a new little person to love. Tom, Daisy and I just got back from a visit with my daughter and our perfect little grandson. She had just finished feeding him as we arrived, so I got to hold him for... Read more

Today I find myself so very grateful for a furnace that works and I turned it on today. I really wanted to wait at least until October but it's been so cold the last couple days. While I was out walking Daisy this morning, with a wind chill of... Read more

Well dear fellow Sparkers - I was hoping my gratitude for today would be the arrival of my new grandson because at 6 a.m. this morning I received a call from my daughter with what sounded like labor. She wanted to know if she should go to the h... Read more

I have to be honest with you all, it's becoming more and more challenging to think about all the things I am grateful for. There are so many that I probably just take them for granted. So I had to think awhile today. Last year my youngest... Read more

Today is a beautiful fall day - finally. A perfect day to get some of the end of season yard work done, which I just finished. Cell phones can be a blessing. Twice now I've gotten a call from my pregnant daughter while out walking with Da... Read more

In keeping with the family theme I would like to say how grateful I am for the parents I had. In talking with people over the years I realize that although my mother was a bit overbearing at times (which is actually an understatement), I always... Read more
