For Father’s Day

“There are times in our life where we received an unexpected gift – one that blesses us in ways it is hard to describe.  This has just happened to me. Bryan Williams, who is a wonderful member of our family and serves our country in the Army and a wonderful husband, father and friend has […]

TO LOVE SOMETHING IS TO GIVE IT ROOM ENOUGH TO GROW

I recently spent the morning working on my flower beds in the front and back of my home.  My mother taught me to love flowers and how to nourish them.  She is in heaven now.  She was in an orphanage as a small child. I think much of who I am today is because of […]

Bloom Where You Are Planted

May is a wonderful time of year.  As I drive around my neighborhood, people are out planting their flowers, mowers can be heard and mulch is going down in yards. It is spring. Years ago, when my father died, I was given a small plant in a small pot.  It was a gift from someone […]

Covered Bridges
