I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. Ps. 37:25

Christmas letter 2013   4 comments

  "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6. A very blessed Christmas season to you all!  I am so sorry I […]

When you get that text or call…   Leave a comment

I was getting a hearing exam Thursday (yesterday) and was in the chair with the thick ear pieces in my ear, hearing the series of beeps to say yes or no to.  When I was all done (hearing hasn’t changed – my old hearing aid was cleaned and still good) I checked my phone.  It […]

Tomorrow you were due —   Leave a comment

19 years ago. I can’t believe how long ago it was!  I quit working around May 19 to prepare for your arrival. Colleen was our second child and we did not find out if we were finding a boy or girl – we didn’t find out with Chris, either.  (We did, with Ryan, for some […]

18 years ago —   Leave a comment

With Colleen’s birthday coming up on Tuesday I felt like posting some publishable parts of my old diary, from 5-12-94. Hard to believe it’s been 18 years. Work told me I’m definitely getting my three-week vacation pay, three-week sick leave, and they want me to do tapes at home. I also may be able to […]

Senior year for 3 of us!!   Leave a comment

RJ is in the 4th grade now and starts Wed. in his autism class, with a new teacher for the 4th and 5th grades.  Hard to believe I have an older elementary school student now!  Will get pictures of all three kids and post soon. Colleen is a senior!  All the festivities that go along […]

17 years ago – Colleen’s birth   Leave a comment

  Yes, another birthday today!  Amazing how fast it all goes.   Was just reviewing some entries from my journal from back then – actually 5-12-94:   “First things first, I’m 2 cm dilated (as of last Friday) and am working only one more week.  I’m ready to enjoy this summer off with my children.  […]

Transition to spring —   Leave a comment

  The Snowmen (NOT CHRISTMAS, MOM! lol – she put the Christmas bow with them – “that’s not right,” as Ryan would say).  They are ready to go to the attic, all condensed and ready for their box as soon as I get it packed (Monday?)  Still have two lone snowmen decs on the mantle […]

Seems fitting to attend a great barbecue the week before school!   Leave a comment

Sometimes it’s challenging to get through the summer easily trying to keep two rambunctious boys happy and safe in the heat.  But all in all I think we all accomplished this this summer.  We have worked as a team – Chris stays at his paternal grandparents’ still (while we await, seek, and research the appropriate […]

birthdays with business as usual.   Leave a comment

16th birthday party is all done and in the books.  I think Colleen and her friends had a good time.  I worked on and off the whole time, and we had a busy weekend with also taking Chris to the park with Ryan and Rog too.  Rog is feeling a lot better.  I actually still […]

Trivial and important often reside together   Leave a comment

As a person who has always been not so good at multi-tasking, I have had to learn to become quite good at it! The important things in my mind always are: Taking care of our children and the family’s basic needs. Roger and I getting our work done. Us getting our schoolwork done when we’re […]
