The Kitchen Table

The Kitchen Table The kitchen table is covered well to protect its top from harm, the family, friends and food around are happy, safe and warm. Mom creates the odors there that draw us from our coves, to harbor in that happy place where laughter comes in droves. My children come, my brothers too, as noises reach a crest, and Dad repeats a blessing known to all who love it best. My hands and arms caress each one and pass…

Know you are all in my prayers.         May God continue to bless you…

Back in 1956, Pearline was a single mother with a boy (4) and a girl (5) and was living in Oakland, California.  She was offered a promotion but this position…

Years ago, I wrote those lines trying to describe “Friends.” Tell me:  what is your version? – “Your wisdom, never ends.” “A Friend in need, is a friend, indeed” – as the old “saying” goes – Friendship is much more than that – as anybody knows. – We have all kinds, so many Friends…

I Like To Be In The Middle

In tribute to our youngest daughter who left early (March 2019) to be in the middle of the Heavenlies. Hearing the patter of her small feet, I glanced at the glowing clock.  Five a.m. it read.  Instinctively I slid over to the center of the bed knowing that our little morning visitor was on her way.  She was too big for pajamas with feet in, so she claimed; and with lowered night temperatures and a nightly ritual of kicking off…
