A year of changes….

on Jan 5th 2015

It’s hard to believe it’s the start of 2015. I heard somewhere recently that “the year 2030 is as near to us as the year 2000″. Wow, food for thought, huh? Remember all that crazy Y2K stuff that ran rampant at the end of 1999? I dreamed when I was a girl that I would […]

Jesus bracelet

on Feb 13th 2013

My little friend Jesus that I met 3 years ago in Panajachel, Guatemala is still around, selling his hand-embroidered postcards and assorted bracelets. I love seeing his sweet smile and hearing his stories of what he’s been doing. He works very hard each day to make enough money to go to school – and he […]

Walking Stick

on Jan 31st 2013

Last night I dreamed that I was riding in the back of a truck (something that is commonly done in Guatemala – where I was last week, although I sat INSIDE the truck) and on the side of the road I saw a walking stick insect that had a leash in it’s mouth. On the […]

Blue sky sadness

on Sep 14th 2012

I attended the funeral of an 18 year old this week. He was a local boy – a phenomenal baseball player who had just started college a few weeks ago on a baseball scholarship. He died in an automobile accident, on the way to a party with friends. As I stood outside the funeral home, […]

What was he thinking?

on Mar 5th 2012

In a rare moment of stupidity…. my husband did this: He meant to burn the overgrown brush at the side of our house. Not what I would have recommended but he meant to do that part…. seriously. But for the fire to flare up quickly and melt the vent to the crawl space under the […]

Sweet Santos

on Mar 4th 2012

I got this sweet picture from Santos  (the cutie pie boy I sponsor to attend school in Guatemala) and the words written on it are precious: Translates to say: Dear Godmother, I am very grateful with you for the gifts that you sent me.  I thank you with all my heart for being so special […]

Choose Kindness

on Feb 28th 2012

My best friend has a heart of gold. She really and truly does……. I am honored just to know her and call her “friend”. But then, to know she is my BEST friend – the one I can always count on, no matter what, is just nearly unbelievable. I am beyond blessed. Go here and […]

Madrina, part 2

on Feb 26th 2012

Santos and his teacher So after huffing and puffing up the hill to the home Santos lives in with his family, as I wrote about last week (or the week before!) – we finally arrived. Whew, not a moment too soon, lemme tell ya. I didn’t think I’d make it much further. In the small […]

*blah blah blah*

on Feb 20th 2012

**Sometimes coming up with a title is far too much work.** My poor little (and big) dogs had super long toenails because I seemed to have misplaced the toenail clippers and couldn’t remember to purchase new ones for the longest time. So one day last week, I was flipping channels on the tv and I […]
