Showing love is not just for Valentine’s Day

  Did you know Valentine’s Day is right around the corner?   Oh, right, you probably do, given the constant barrage of guilt-inducing, wallet-breaking, comparison making advertisements that are absolutely everywhere you turn. My hubbie knows too, but he won’t be getting me anything for this red letter holiday. I know it’s possible when you just […]

Patterns of Love in Your Marriage

  When colors, shapes, and sounds come together, delightful patterns can be formed. You encounter them everywhere: in the clothes you wear, the furnishings you buy, the music you hear. While some patterns are easy to spot, some are much more subtle. Patterns of love tend to be this less obvious type, since they develop […]

Valentine’s Day: 5 tips for a delightful celebration

    Jay Leno said, “Today is Valentine’s Day. Or, as men like to call it, Extortion day.” The best humor always has a smidge of truth in it, doesn’t it? Jay’s comment is no exception. There is an air of huge expectancy from the women for their men to perform above and beyond on […]

The circle of life brings big gifts in tiny packages

  I’ve updated this post from a year ago, in honor of our circle of life that will soon be expanding.   I look back over the rocky chasms and green fields of the past almost 30 years, and zoom in on those beginning months that were shaping me to be a parent. Yes, we […]

Miss Goody Two Shoes and Party Boy-30 years later

  I never should have been in the bar that night. It was like going into the grocery store when you haven’t eaten all day. Everything looks way better than it really is, and you gravitate towards the stuff that isn’t very good for you. And so it was the night I met my husband. […]

Five Minute Friday-Together

“Let’s have a monthly family dinner night gathering!” Ideas. I have so many. And typically they involve quite a few people. And a scope and size that doesn’t scale most of the time. But this one did. I think naming it as a goal and giving it a deadline certainly helped. So we made plans, […]

When the April Atlantic trumps the urgent

  Sometimes we get so busy we forget to take our own advice. We lose sight of the strong, silent important amidst the loud, clamoring urgent.   Take this past weekend, for example. I visited my dear hubbie at the modest apartment he’s renting while he’s away at his current work assignment. Like all of […]

A distance too far

  This April marks the 100th anniversary of the glory and wonder of the Titanic being launched, while it also marks the somber occasion of the sad and horrifying story of its tragic sinking.
