Top Ten

Top ten things about this week… 1.  My parents’ willingness to watch my children while I get away to scrapbook for three days. 2.  Skyping (well, just instant messaging) my man. 3.  An actual 14 minute conversation with the hubby via Skype yesterday.  14 minutes of hearing his voice!!! 4.  The happy attitudes of my […]

No direction

I lack direction of my writings this year. Know what that means? Randomness!!! I keep finding myself ending the day listing a few gifts in my mind. I guess that is a good thing!  That fact actually thrills me!  Sometimes I am naturally seeking and naming my gifts. JOY! I feel a list coming on, […]
