It was 1019 miles by car to Granddaddy's. Two really long days each way with few stretches of interstate highways, no air-conditioning, much less Sirius. Can we say "purgatory" for the three kids in the back seat?
There he was in the pouring rain, no umbrella, no helping hands in sight. Another break-in at work. He meticulously picked up the broken glass from the shattered car window.
I absolutely loved my father-in-law! Like Tom, I thought Dad could do or fix ANYTHING, from cars to roofs to growing beautiful roses.
One of the things I like most about our house is its dining room. Yeah, yeah, I know, open concept is what's currently trending in today's homes. But trust me, there are times when family and friends eat all over our four rooms of entertaining space. For me, though, there's something special about a dining room.
Don't you love a church potluck dinner? Nobody cooks like the "church ladies"! Long before I ever heard of Golden Corral, my preschool hand was sneaking up to grab a culinary treat from the long stone tables in our tiny churchyard.

Sometimes I think candy bars are an invention of Satan. I know they really aren’t, but there is probably no candy bar that I don’t really enjoy. Maybe enjoy isn’t quite the right words, perhaps savor is a better description.
Am I the only one who is amazed every day at the antics of some drivers during commutes? I'll confess to not being the best driver on the road. Like most others, though, I try to obey the rules of the road. Then there's the few who drive like they've been hit with a stupid stick.
Don't you love being able to take care of all kinds of business remotely? Bill paying, grocery shopping, checking your kids' grades. It's great!
But convenience comes with a cost, doesn't it? And that cost, the digital key helping us live more efficiently is a plethora of passwords.
Why me, Lord? Why on earth or in heaven have you called me to do this? Don't you think I know what people are saying about me? I'm not deaf you know.
