The Unwritten Story

“Sammy, I’m in love!” That’s what Harry told his friend after we met on August 4, 1978. I was with my family at a Lebanese convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. The annual convention was held to bring Lebanese families together to celebrate our culture, traditions, and our heritage. There were always keynote speakers, dinners, tours of […]

           Heaven, Husbands and Hormones                   I'm sharing my thoughts on these topics with you because I am still learning even after forty years of marriage and parenting. As I grow stronger in my faith, my marriage and in my roles as wife, mother and grandmother, I will share these little "pearls of wisdom" with you on the blog page.

hello + welcome!

Until Death Do Us Part

“Until death do us part.” My fingers slipped the wedding band onto Harry’s finger 41 1/2 years ago as I recited those five words to him. Whenever I attended weddings in the past, I never focused on those words that are recited as a part of the wedding vows. The words are a reminder of […]

Now It’s Their Turn

Life was certainly busy. And overwhelming. The cooking, cleaning, driving the kids to their sports practices, dance classes, gymnastics, music lessons, dental and medical appointments, birthday parties, and of course, daily Mass. I did not have time to stop and think about how tired I was. I made my list for the next day, went […]

The Gift of Treasured Memories

There was a prayer that the priest who presided over our wedding said when my husband and I were standing at the altar — May you live to see your children’s children. I hear that prayer at many of the weddings I attend, and I always pray that the newly married couple will have the […]

A Second Chance

“Please don’t let me die, let me raise my own children.” Why are my arms and legs shaking? Where’s my baby? What’s happening? I will never forget the words my nurse kept repeating as I asked those questions, “We’re doing everything we can for you.” It was 5 in the morning, and I had delivered […]

The Difference Between A King and A Dad

One was a great king, but not a great father. The other was a great father, and a king in the hearts of his children. David was a talented musician and songwriter and wrote many incredible Psalms in the Bible. He grew in courage and strength as he tended the sheep for his father. When […]

The Promise

“I, Georgette, take you Harry, to be my wedded husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.” “I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad. I will love you and […]

A Mother’s Blessing

I made homemade cards for her out of scraps of paper. I picked dandelions from our yard and gave them to her. I made toast and spread jelly on it for her so that she could have breakfast in bed. I am a gift giver and those were some of the ways that I showed […]

When You’re Smilin’

Last week, my daughter Christine called me on the phone. When I answered, I heard the sweet little voice of her two-year-old son, “Hiiiiiiiiii.” Whenever Christine calls, her son Will insists on being included in the conversation. He listens to what we are saying, and then it’s his turn to talk. He always tells me […]

Are You A Hero?

Like many kids growing up, I watched cartoons and read comic books which encouraged me to want to be a superhero when I grew up. Many young boys and girls have the desire to be a superhero after they watch a movie or read a book about one. When they are asked what they would […]
