1. Fun for All Ages

    The main artery roads are separated by bright orange barrels to direct traffic for the State Fair.  A brilliant colorful marquee announces it's soon arrival.  While local residents sleep, trucks and trailers appear during the night in the designated acreage.  The Farris wheel, tea cup, and haunted house rides are almost covertly erected with skill and efficiency before day breaks.  The empty b…Read More

  2. Battle of the Super Bug

    "Hi, Shannon.  It's Wendy again.  (deep sign) Reagan's sick again after a few good days of feeling better.  Not sure if I should bring her back in or if the doc wants to call me." "Oh, no.  Poor Reagan.  Let me take message.  Tell me what's going on."  (I'll spare you the gruesome gastro details.) The vet called me back within an hour sharing her disappointment about Reagan's relapse of sym…Read More

  3. Vacation and Relaxation

    Last Thursday sitting on a sandy beach watching the waves crash, I felt the warm sun on my skin.  My dear friend, Jen, was beside me and we were catching up on events and laughing.  We see each other only once a year because we live in different states.  Jen and her family are wonderful hosts -- taking me to the best bar-be-cue joints in the south, watching funny movies, taking me for a ride on…Read More

  4. Lessons from the Knitting Circle

    My family and I surrounded my grandmother's hospice bed.  She appeared a stranger.  Her body was eaten by cancer, her face sunken with a yellow complexion, her breath rattled, and her bones protruded under the hospital blanket.  An exquisite maroon colored prayer shawl draped around her shoulders.  As her last breathes were fading, I recalled how the shawl provided comfort to my grandmother du…Read More

  5. Desire Honored

    "Hello," I answered the phone in a sing-song voice seeing  my friend's name on caller ID. On the other end of the line I heard a small soft hiccup sound.  "Wendy," (a pause filled with weeping) -- I gently responded, "I'm here." "Am I a bad mom?," barely audible asked my friend, Rachel. Immediately my mind raced -- Oh boy, she'd only been a mother for 2 weeks and haunted by a question many paren…Read More

  6. New Kid on the Block

    When I was in 4th grade, my parents transferred me mid-year into a new school.  The principal escorted us to the classroom.  I wore a fresh navy checkered-jumper uniform with a white blouse and navy tights with black loafers.  I felt terrified and awkward meeting students who already had established friendships.  Plus, I looked like something from a horror film with a brown grotesque scab on t…Read More
