Barbara Bush and her angel daughter.

Happy Birthday, Treenie!

Today is my sister, Kathi’s, birthday. I rarely call her Kathi, to me she is Treenie or Katrina. I am blessed and thankful to have her in my life.

National Sibling day was yesterday. Today, my sister, Kathi and I are going to Florida for a week. We will celebrate being siblings and her birthday. I’m excited. I am looking forward to the time in the sunshine. Enough of the snow already. Life is good.  

Calling all angels.

Angels are everywhere. Yep, I really believe that. Last week I was in the car driving. I had a lot on my mind. Generally when I feel that way I think about Joe and my parents. I always ask for a sign from them during those times. This song came on the radio. The words: [...]
