Decisions, Decisions

Last week the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision which legalized abortion in America. Friday’s ruling filled the news cycle immediately and continues to do so. The world is talking about it and everyone has an opinion.  While I anticipated a...

FIND YOUR VOICE

We love our pups.  We have two big, white, fluffy Great Pyrenees.  When we moved to the country in 2017, we felt our lives were complete – cows, a horse, and pups.  Then a stranger showed up. Buddy, a small pit/terrier mix, entered our lives three years ago. ...

Finish the Race

I’ve never been an athlete.  I figured there was a reason for scooters in stores and moving walkways in airports, and I could help them stay in business if I continued using them. Well, I was wrong. As I am now well past the age to know better, I realize the...

NO PAIN, NO GAIN

I’ve been on a health kick lately.  If you know me, I tend to be an “all or nothing” type of gal, so I’m moving away from eating anything and everything (in moderation, of course), to eating Mediterranean, gluten free, lactose free, sugar free. My friends say I’m...

A LASTING LEGACY

Last week, hubby called me sobbing.  In 34 years, he’s only cried three times, so I knew something was terribly wrong.  Our good friend of 20+ years had just died from a battle with leukemia.  At this point, hearing Cary, I started crying, too. I’ve...

The Journey to Health: The Long Road

My momma and daddy always told me, “Deborah Jan, nothing’s worth having unless you have to work hard for it.”  I always hated to hear them say that, but now I know how right they were.  Doubly so when you’re working toward a goal of good health. I received a great...

What’s Love Got To Do With It?

I look forward to time with my gal friends from the Big City.  A few weeks back I had lunch with my pal/gal (no, not “Sal”).  Always a hoot — always entertaining – almost like going to a movie (the only thing missing is the popcorn).  However, when her tone...

One Big Baby

As I detailed earlier in my post of May 9, 2019, I shared what happened to our neighbor’s cow whose birth was stillborn.  That turned into a traumatic event for the bovines, we humans and our canines.  Fortunately, our neighbor found a cute little bottle calf, whom he...

The Grass Is Always Greener

Since I was knee high to a grasshopper, my family would tell me, “Deborah Jan, just you wait, the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.”  Ever since then, I’ve looked on both sides of every fence wherever I go. Once we moved to the country, I found a...

Climb Every Mountain

I’ve seen a lot of mountains this year – Alaska, California, Colorado, New Mexico.  Breathtakingly beautiful all.  Whenever I experience a change from the East Texas piney woods and Texas heat, God’s creation is there to remind me what an outstanding artist He is. ...
