Trying something different today, folks! It's a video of me speaking, mostly reading you something I've written. I guess this is my first Vlog! We'll see how it goes. If you all like it, I may do it once in a while. Thinking maybe I should find a place to sit and give myself a … Continue reading Mountain Top Moments
So, while I had no plan to do this (I rarely know what I'm going to write about until the inspiration 'hits me') today I am writing again about St. Maximilian Kolbe. And, again, this was not planned. The Mission of the Franciscans I am a 'fan' of St. Max. His intercessory prayers, I'm convinced, … Continue reading The Face His Mother Gave Him
Halloween always brings back wonderful memories of our kids getting ready for trick or treating and the happy chaos that ensued! We had many of our Halloweens in Germany since we spent 14 years of my husband's Army career over there. It was a lot of fun because we always lived on post so we … Continue reading Memories of Halloween from an Army Wife
I received this video from my dad in an email a couple of days ago. It's a beautiful little story about a humble, unassuming factory worker named Ben who pays his respects each day to the Lord. I don't want to spoil it if you haven't watched it yet. So go do that. I'll wait … Continue reading One, good friend
My latest entry is up on the Women in the New Evangelization website! WINE is a fabulous initiative to get Catholic Women together to learn and grow in their faith, and to evangelize to others who do not know God or the faith, even if they were raised in it! It happens, believe me! I … Continue reading “Jesus I trust in You”
I'm going back to graduate school next week. Yikes! I am almost positive that this is what I should be doing. In fact, the only trepidation is my own lack of confidence in my mental abilities at this point in life. I'll be 58 in a few weeks. What am I thinking? I started a … Continue reading How’d I end up here?
So, a couple of Sundays ago, another of my posts was first shared on the Women In the New Evangelization blog site. And, because I am such a dope sometimes, I forgot to post it here, too! Thankfully, they archive all their old bloggers' entries and I was able to capture the link to share … Continue reading Another WINE entry
I wrote this when I was still an Active Duty Army wife. I think, though I can't be sure, that I wrote it during one of my husband's many deployments to dangerous places. I think it's obvious when you read it why I wrote it. Sometimes you need to remind yourself of some basic truths. … Continue reading Thoughts on love from an old Army wife
I found a spot for my Army house and hearts. Wrote a big long meditation about it yesterday. Thought I posted it but I guess I didn’t. Oh well! 21 homes in 34 years of marriage/36 plus years in the Army for Sean. We met and married during that first assignment so our numbers are … Continue reading Home
For 33 years, since I married my husband, it has been a privilege to work with, support, advocate for, mentor, and encourage Soldiers and their families. Because of my love and concern for our Army families, over the past decade I have developed a real concern about behavioral health challenges in our Army families. What … Continue reading Attitude is Everything!
