Time to be honest. Who watched Sesame Street when they were young? Better yet, who watched it in the 70’s when I did? If so, then good chance you remember certain songs from back then about certain letters of the alphabet. If I heard any of them now I’d be able to sing them word for word. Occasionally, they had a well-known song altered just a hair to focus on a certain letter. You now get the chance to guess which letter this song was used for.

Looking at the Past Because of the Present – #2

I bet you’ve had something take place fairly recently that got you to think of a certain time period that took place in your past. 
A few weeks back I shared how that had happened to me when I had fallen during my routine run. Because of that fall, I now know that collarbone is one word. Also, if you fall just right, the collarbone can break up into two or, like in my case, more than two places. I bet you are like me, wishing you didn’t have to learn facts such as these the hard way.

Mom’s Best Gift

Quote - A Mother is she who can take the place of all the others

Happy Mother’s Day !

This Mother’s day is one of many that I pull out a certain photo album my mother gave me many years ago for Christmas. Being a mother of four myself, I was thankful my parents lived not even 8 minutes away. Seeing them often was a must, along with exchanging Christmas gifts. Continue reading “Mom’s Best Gift”

For instance, ‘E’ is the letter I type instead of encephalitis, the word used most often to describe the illness I had years ago. (*1) Continue reading “How Sadness Showed Me God’s Presence”

Unforgettable Forgettable Pictures

There is nothing new except what has been forgotten. —Marie Antoinette

Don't Forget to Remember written with Remember on top colored paper

Memories. Memories can be tough sometimes. Sure, everyone has things here and there they don’t remember. But for me, I only had things here and there I DID remember when I walked into that new hospital to help me recuperate after being hit with encephalitis.

Meet For The First Time . . . Again -part 2

door_edited-2

That same day I ‘woke-up,’ or the day after, in walked someone new.

“Marianne,” one of the doctors said, “someone’s here whom you knew before you got sick.”  In walked this man. 

Who is he? He’s not dressed like everyone else here. He . . . he sort of looks familiar, whoever he is.

“Marianne, this is your husband, Chris.” Continue reading “Meet For The First Time . . . Again -part 2”
