“June is busting out all over” and so is our life! Last week I mentioned time and trying to savor it, work it, and enjoy it: well, these last several days I have accomplished all of that with the time I was given! Before I write of our wonderful last five days let’s back up…

Time out. Oftentimes, I need a little time out to refresh my energy, emotion, or eagerness in getting through a task at hand.

Hello from just over the hilltop in Norwood where the “sun in the morning peeks over the hill and kisses the roses round my window sill; then my heart fills with gladness when I hear the trill of the birds in the treetops on Mockin’ Bird Hill.” That was one of my favorite songs as…

Hello to my dear family and friends from “just over the hilltop.” The other morning while washing dishes and listening to a playlist from the former Mom’s Schoolhouse Diner, the song “Forty Shades of Green” came on. I glanced out the window to see how our green measured up. I noticed we may not have…
