Love of Springers

springersThe love of a dog is a beautiful thing

I’ve had many and they are so special in their own way.

One never replaces the other, 

But fills the days with love and endless days of play

To say one is more special than the other

Would be an injustice to the ones that have passed.

Today we rejoice with our special Emma

And the days and time seems to go so fast.

We love this breed being a Springer Spaniel

springers

As they have such a sweet personality and love to hover

She is a sweetheart and constant companion

Never goes out of sight and is such a lover

To say she is our last would be predicting the future

I will always have a. dog and its name will be “Wover”!!!!

The Grass is Always Greener

When I was a kid,  I had so many opportunities for anticipation. I kind of look at it from the standpoint of “the grass is always greener”…You know,  I thought others seem to be in a better situation than me, although they may not be.

Lazy Summer Days

adulthoodI enjoyed being a kid.  I was adventurous and loved to explore new things.  One of my favorite things I remember as a kid was the lazy summer days.  In my day we didn’t have all the activities that kids today seem to be involved in.  My summers were my favorite time of the year.  It meant jumping out of bed, pulling on a pair of shorts and a t-shirt, grabbing a bowl of fresh raspberries from the garden, and on to my friend’s house.

Not Grown Up Yet

I remember bits and pieces of being a child and I often wanted more. I wanted to stay up late like the grown-ups. I wanted to decide what I would eat for dinner and what to buy at the grocery store.

It seemed like all the big decisions were made by the adults. Continue reading

Not Hard To Find

Home on MacArthur Drive

The first time I left home was the first and the last.  I graduated from high school in 1962, worked as a secretary for the Superintendent of Schools prior to graduation, and upon graduation, then in August of that year, I went to work for the next fifty-six years at the law office.  I got engaged while a senior in high school and waited one year to regroup and got married in the summer of 1963.   Continue reading

Freedom and Jesus

Freedom in Jesus

I always knew I would go to college. It was more than growing up, more than the next step…it was freedom!

Actually, I didn’t even know there was an option. It wasn’t until years later that I discovered that my dad didn’t really believe that I would go…and graduate. (I’m kinda glad that no one ever shared that little detail with me.) Continue reading
