Martin Luther King.

Today is the day that we celebrate Martin Luther King.  My favorite Martin Luther King quote is, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Love that. Have a great day.

My Girl.

  Well, it is time to take Sadie back to Seton Hill.  She has been home for more than forty days.  A nice winter break, for sure.  I certainly enjoyed my time with her.  We shopped, went to the movies, shared meals, relaxed on the couch, enjoyed Christmas and the spaghetti dinner and, we laughed a lot.  I [...]

National Popcorn Day.

Today is National Popcorn Day.  I just love popcorn.  I don’t know if it is because eating popcorn reminds me of being a child.  Or, because I love going to the movies.  I love sitting in a dark theater, watching a movie, eating popcorn. I know it isn’t good for you.  It is one of the [...]

Support from my mama.

The other day, I spent three hours in my attic.  I found this Ritz cracker can. I have saved this can for the last thirty years.  My mother gave me this can, full of crackers, and a jar of peanut butter, when I moved out of our family home and into my first apartment at [...]

Just Breathe.

I woke up this morning with the song, “Just Breathe” by Pearl Jam, stuck in my head.  Having a song stuck in my head is not unusual. That song always reminds me of Joe.  I have blogged about times when that song has come on the radio, just when I needed it.  The first time [...]

It’s a little bit of everything.

John is always putting songs on my iPod.  He is an avid listener and supporter of WYEP,  a local independent radio station.  Last year I found myself alone on a flight to Florida.  I sat in my window seat, looking out at the clouds and my country. I always feel so close to God while on a plane.  [...]

A treasured comment.

I love when I read comments that people post to me about Joe.  This comment was left on a blog the morning of the spaghetti dinner.  I wanted to share.  I awoke at 4:00 to the sound of the snow plows on our street.  And I thought of Joe. I think your friends all woke [...]

Joseph Joseph

On Saturday, John and I were in the Plow and Hearth store in Robinson.  I had never been there before, but have enjoyed the Plow and Hearth catalog when it arrives in my mailbox.  I walked around, looking at everything.  I purchased a few small sale items.  As I stood in the check out line [...]

Make your dreams come true day.

Today is the National Make Your Dreams Come True day.  I think, overall, many of us never think about our dreams.  Waking or asleep our dreams should be important to us.  Somewhere along the way I think many of us have forgotten our dreams. Make Your Dream Come True Day gives you the opportunity to [...]

Moving energy.

We have an unusual weather forecast for today.  I believe the temperature in Pittsburgh may get as high as 64 degrees by this afternoon. John and I are going to take advance of the weather.  We are going to clean our garage.  Yep.  Clean the garage.  It seems like the garage and the attic are the two places [...]
