           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!

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 […]

Here’s Your Second Chance

In 2010, my daughters and I had a movie night date about once a week. One particular night we watched a movie called “17 Again”. It was a movie that starred the actor, Zac Efron, and because one of my daughters had a crush on him, we had to watch every movie that he ever […]

How To Keep The Game Going

There was a story that I heard years ago about a golfer, Jimmy, who went golfing with his friend Ned. After the trip, a friend of his asked him how the golf trip was. Jimmy replied, “Well it was going great, but at the fourth hole, Ned stopped, grabbed his chest, dropped to the ground […]

Don’t Let Them Steal Your Joy!

Did she really just say that? What did I ever do to her? Was it something that I said or did? What just happened? These are some thoughts that have crossed my mind as I went through my grade school, high school, and college years and even now as an adult whenever someone tries to […]
