As I carried my granddaughter up the stairs of the old 1910 house, each step creaked loudly, echoing the sounds of yesteryears.  I imagined how many times the stairs were climbed as a little child was carried off for nap time.

Can You Live With Silence

Can You Live With Silence

The first thing I do after I open my eyes in the morning is talk to God.  Then, I talk to Farmer Dean.  Then, I turn the music on at my house. My brother calls it “grocery store music,” but I call it music from the 1940s and 50s.  It’s soothing to my soul.  As […]

I like to turn days like this around.  How, you ask?  Well, it usually means brewing a good pot of steaming coffee, baking some of Grandma Thelma’s gingersnaps, and […]

Waiting for the Rest

Waiting for the Rest

As a child, growing up in Southwest Iowa, I spent a lot of time outside amidst the beautiful butterflies, the fuzzy yellow jacket bees, and the bright dragon flies that hovered and buzzed over the lush green grass and flowers that grew outside the patio door.
