Stealth Mode

I was in Wal-Mart last night picking up some groceries, when I suddenly spotted the turkeys.  They were there in the freezer just like they are every year, but this year is different.  A cold chill ran up my spine and into my heart as I stared at them.  This is the first Thanksgiving my… Read More ›

Just Being Me

Today I am thankful I am me. Saying I am thankful I am me sounds a bit conceited perhaps, but I am truly thankful that we are each of us wonderfully and individually made.  There’s not a single person that is identical to another person inside and out.  What a great gift to wake up in the morning and… Read More ›

Casey’s Comet

A little over a year ago we added a little fuzzball to our family.  My friend was looking to find the somewhat scrawny little thing a home.  We kind of debated on what to name him for a while, but when he runs he is fast and the person he runs after is Casey.  So we… Read More ›

People Watching

I occasionally work on the weekends doing demonstrations and handing out samples at Target.  I started working this job for several reasons: extra money, meeting new people, expanding my horizons by doing something different, and my favorite thing – people watching. Today I was handing out the Lindt Lindor milk chocolate bunny samples.  They were tiny… Read More ›
