Family – how do you carry yours?

The greatest pleasures I have in life are summed up in my husband, children, in-law children and grandchildren.   I believe that I was born for the single purpose of loving them.   I often times wish that I could see into their hearts what I see in their eyes. As little children I could sense pretty…

Photos – A few of my favourites

I decided today to just share a few of my favourite photos I have taken over the last while. My husband laughs at me at times because I see the world through a lens.   I can be driving down the road and tell him…ohhh look…. that would be a beautiful photo.  The colors, shapes and…

Giants – Fear from a Mother’s Heart

Today was a day of facing a giant.   It is one that I thought I had put away for almost a year now.  If you have been following me for very long you know of our daughter’s health journey.  For 7 1/2 months she was hospitalized and suffered a great deal.  Then came time to…

2019 International Women’s Day

I am not sure why the distinction of celebrating women makes me stand a little taller, but truth be told, today it does.   I remember growing up thinking that my voice sounded like a boys voice and wanted it to sound like a girls voice.  Not sure what I was thinking, I was 6 years…

I am back, healing has begun

2019 Thankful List – Darwin

What sounds best Old or New Muscle cars?

2018 is gone and 2019 is here!   So, on this beautiful New Years Day 2019 what am I doing?   I am sitting in my chair looking at muscle car videos.   I have hidden my love for the “old” muscle cars for a lot of years, but since Facebook has so many that show up on…

Happy New Year wish from me to you!

I had written a New Years post about a week ago to go live at midnight and it disappeared, obviously human error…. mine. Thank you for taking time to read through my posts this last year.   I have always loved to write, because I have as many words floating around in my head and those…

Merry Christmas from Heartbeat’s House

I love being a Mom.   I remember the time I held my two children in my arms for the first time.  Those memories don’t fade.   Counting fingers and toes and touching their hair for the first time.. precious memories. I think of Mary, Jesus Mom.   She was a young woman, so much…

First

Christmas holds a variety of traditions and beliefs for everyone.   Lifestyle, upbringing, and personal choice is the path that leads to the traditions and beliefs that we hold to our hearts as precious and as truth. For me one of the traditions that is closer to my heart than I can say is, being…
