           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 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 […]

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 […]

My Kind of Romance

He starts my car to warm it up and then he shovels the snow off my windshield. He drives my car to the gas station to fill the tires with air. It took many years of marriage before I appreciated being loved in this way by my husband. I was the “chick flick” kind of […]

The Family Picture

“Don’t take my picture, I’m not dressed for it.” “I don’t like having my picture taken.” “My hair doesn’t look good.” “I don’t have makeup on.” These were my excuses throughout the years for not wanting to be in a picture. One of my daughters said, “Mom, you look better now than you will in […]

The Baby Monitor

Are they asleep yet? Are they still awake? When my children were babies and I would lay them down for a nap, I would keep the door ajar because if the door was closed, I never knew if the kids were asleep or awake until I actually heard them cry or talk. Most parents have […]
