Happy 78th Birthday, Dad – I miss you!

Happy 78th Birthday, Dad – I miss you!

Today would have been my beloved Dad’s 78th birthday. I sure do miss him, especially his hugs and his soothing words of encouragement. No matter what endeavor I tackled, he was the first one to tell me I could do it. He prayed for me, shared words of wisdom, wrapped me up in his “big daddy” hugs (no matter how old I was), and told me how much he loved me, and how proud he was of me and my…

New Year, 2011

New Year, 2011

Well, it only took almost three years to get BACK here (from when I first started this blog) … way too many things have occurred to cover NOW, but suffice it to say, this new year of 2011 brings fresh opportunities to be more organized and manage my time more efficiently. Part of the changes include blogging more regularly.  I decided to participate in the Ultimate Blog Challenge using my newest freelance writing blog, Office Help 4 Hire, and I’m…

I have several writing jobs, as well as my quilting business, which is also growing in…

A New Season

A New Season

We are entering a new season – fall is my favorite time of the year! Living here in Maine, I love the fall foliage and the crisp air – a welcome break from the summer humidity! It’s a good time to snuggle under a quilt or afghan with that early morning cup of tea (or coffee). Cozy sweatshirts or sweaters with jeans become the normal clothing of preference. With this new season come new opportunities for growth, personally and professionally… new…

Reflections on 9-11 … and an Update on LIFE

Reflections on 9-11 … and an Update on LIFE

I couldn’t help but reflect on where I was on that fateful day, 7 years ago – can you believe it has been that long?  Do you remember where YOU were? I had the day off from work and went to a friend’s house for morning tea and chat. We were clueless about the events that morning until her mother called and told her to turn on the news – we were shocked, along with the rest of the world that day. I left her house to…
