Homeward bound.

I am up early today. It is time to head back home to Pittsburgh. Nineteen days is too long of a time for me to be away from Johnny. I am missing him. This is also the longest amount of time that I have been away from Sadie. I will see her on Friday. I [...]

National Random Acts of Kindness day.

Today is National Random Acts of Kindness Day.  When my children where small, someone asked me to pick just one quality that I hoped I could see in my children. Without thinking I said kindness. I think if you are kind, everything else can fall into place. I was lucky. Joe was one of the [...]

George Washington.

Today is President’s day. One of my favorite George Washington quotes is, “Let your heart feel for the afflictions and distress of everyone, and let your hand give in proportion to your purse.” It sounds like George was not only an honest man, but kind and generous as well. Enjoy your day.  

A perfect combination.

I like the song, “Take me to Church” by Hozier. I enjoy watching just about any kind of dancing. I am moved by beautiful photography in both photos and videos. This is a perfect combination of all three. I hope you enjoy it. Stay warm today!    

My Valentine.

It has been 27 years since I first fell in love with Johnny. We have been through a lot together. Too much, actually. When I think of myself, I can’t even imagine life without him. I think that when God knew what His plan was for me, He put Johnny in my path. He knew [...]


Today is my last day in Florida with my mama. Tomorrow I will be taking her back to Orlando where she will join my sister, Kathi, for the flight home. I will be returning next Wednesday. Mama talked a lot about my dad while she was here. I told her that when she passes that [...]

Happy birthday, Abe.

Today is Abraham Lincoln’s birthday!  Abraham Lincoln is my favorite president.  I love quotes.  Many of my favorites come from Abe Lincoln.  Here are a few: “People are as happy as they make their mind up to be.” “Whatever you are, be a good one.” “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we [...]


We are all going to have times in our lives where we will need to take a moment and look at what is happening in a difference way. Get a new perspective. There are many ways to see something. Try this with me and imagine that you are walking on the green of a golf [...]

National Pizza Day.

Yesterday was National Pizza Day! I don’t know how I missed that! Pizza is my favorite food. I think it goes back to when I was a kid and my mama and I would make the Chef Boyardee pizza together. When I was in high school I had friends who worked at a pizza shop. [...]

Growth Opportunity.

Every one of us has sunshine and rain in our lives.  We all have good times and not so good times. We have laughter and tears. In my own life, I have gained the most knowledge during the days of rain and tears. With the start of each day we are given the opportunity to [...]
