Heart Full of Hope
- February 17
- I've never played by the rules. I was absent the day they handed those out. I believe in being kind, playing fair, laughing often, not judging others and drinking red wine. And I always kiss my Sweetie goodnight. It may lead to other fun stuff.
Life is short! Break the rules! Forgive quickly! Kiss slowly!
Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably...
And never regret anything that made you smile.
Always remember that stressed spelled backwards is desserts.
Part of the secret of a success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.
~ Mark Twain

Taking care of your home is not unlike taking care of the country you live in. Both are based on principles we were presumably taught at a very young age. I am reminded of the book by Robert Fulghum, “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in… Read full post »
It starts in early November, sometimes October or even sooner. The days grow gloomy, clocks get set back, darkness comes sooner. People get grumpy or depressed and can't figure out why. Then reality hits, like a cold winter blizzard. The holidays are coming! And it seems they do so sooner… Read full post »
My first husband, Bob, and I met in January, 1974, and were married by that April, a country wedding arranged by his favorite Aunt, complete with a pig roasted luau style. It was a great party,
It happens every year in October. I think of my sister, Frances. Of course I think of her more than during this month, but this was her favorite season of the year. The colors, scents and crisp fall air gave her an added spring to her step. Not that she… Read full post »
My first husband was extremely proud of his ancestry and relayed the following story on countless occasions. People were quite intrigued by it.
His Uncle Paul was a writer for The Desert Magazine for many years and he wrote this actual account… Read full post »
I remember when I was fifteen years old and being completely disgusted with myself. My physical self. Nothing seemed to go together. My eyebrows were turning into a uni-brow, my hair was unruly and the only hair product on the market was “dippity doo”, of which I always used too… Read full post »

The boy's school was across the street and the year we entered this institution, the teachers finally removed the rope which divided the boys from the girls during assemblies. What on… Read full post »
This is Phoebe, our little eight pound poodle we rescued in 2000. When my first husband and I had wandered the aisles of the shelter we had just about given up hope of finding what we wanted. Actually, it had been his idea to… Read full post »
I bought a frozen pie shell today at the supermarket. This may not seem too noteworthy to some people, but believe me, in my world this is momentous. In the family in which I was raised buying a frozen pie shell would be utterly unnatural, almost sacrilegious.… Read full post »
Many years ago my first husband and I owned Service Stations. They were not called gas stations because we provided full service care for your car. We hired top trained car mechanics and over the years some very colorful characters worked for us. One in particular had tattoos all over… Read full post »

We all have had our own personal journeys grieving. This is mine.
