A change of address

"Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don't you believe  a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will have just changed my address. 
I have gone into the presence of God."

Billy Graham 
1918 - 2018

Tasty Tuesday

It was love at first sight! What am I talking about? Shopping at William and Sonoma. The store is gorgeous. Eye candy everywhere.   

My purchases from William -Sonoma have always been online. Shopping in the store is absolutely the best experience. You will find experienced personnel that will be excited to assist you.  Classes? Check them out when you visit. 

I appreciate this quote from Julia Child  "... no one is born a great cook, one learns by doing."

Monday Musing ... motherhood

"A mother's joy begins when a new life is stirring inside ... when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the very first time, and a playful kick reminds her that she is never alone. "

I image every mother may cherish specials memories of her pregnancy. Some of us remember praying, hoping and waiting in joyful anticipation of the baby's arrival.  One acquaintance is looking forward to the arrival of her baby this spring.

Do you enjoy listening to stories of expectant mothers? I do!  I tend to listen and not offer any unsolicited advice.  There is something about the bond of motherhood that brings women together.
"B" is expecting her second child this  spring.
I am a patron at the salon where she is a stylist.
Pretty Pregnancy.

Just saying ...


Do you have some theory about how your friendships have developed?

Well, Aristotle put friendships into categories.  Ruth Scurr shared that “Aristotle divided friendships into three types, according to whether it was motivated by utility, pleasure or virtue. In his, “ Theory of Moral Sentiments”. (1759) Adam Smith claimed that only the last of these three deserved “the sacred and venerable name of friendship.”

 We (my husband and I) include “Jo” is in the category of friends that are like family. Over the years, she helped at our anniversary party, attended countless dinners at our home, laughed over meals at restaurants, attended church together, luncheons, fashion shows, NSBE conventions, and so goes the list.

We have prayed for her and prayed with her.

Jo is more than a friend; she is like family to us.
Jo is such a cutie. Plus she is so intelligent. Here she is preparing
to teach Sunday School to 3 and 4 year old children.

... the power of connection

"Every child deserves a champion - an adult who will never give up  on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be."
Rita Pierson

Teachers are often have the power of connection to their students. In a teacher's classroom, they have the power and ability to instruct, inspire, direct, challenge and encourage.

My friend, Mrs. Young was that connection for her students. After a long career of teaching, she continued a difference in her retirement as  a tutor with Read to Succeed.
Mrs. Young was a loving mother, grandmother, great- grandmother, teacher and friend.

At her funeral, we celebrated her faith in Jesus. We will miss her presence at the 8:00 a.m. worship service.  Praying God will comfort her family.
