HI! Welcome to my blog! This is a first for me. I have always loved writing! Started a family newspaper when I was only 8 years old, charged my siblings and parents a quarter for a copy 🙂 Started journaling at the age of 13, when my beloved brother passed away suddenly due to a heart attack.  I have tons of journals now ! Writing can be a private thing to deal with all kinds of emotions and it can be public, used  to reach out to others and touch their lives in ways that you may have never dreamed of. That is what I want my writings to be now, I want to touch others! I want to get more serious about writing and see where it will take me.  So come along on my journey , laugh and cry at my posts and feel free to leave feedback!  Thank you for your time and blessings as you read!


I am a Mother of 2 awesome kids, 12 and 15 years old.  They are always teaching me things! Married to a wonderful husband of 19 years! I am truly blessed!

  1. I agree with Max — you have a lovely blog, full of vividly described scenes and heartfelt emotions! And your header image is so bright and peaceful, it’s like taking a deep breath of serenity. Beautiful! This year I’ve been on a virtual quest to find and comment on a positive blog every day, seeking to improve my mindset and bring more joy to the world. I keep a list of my discoveries on my own blog, and have added yours as today’s entry. 🙂

  2. Thanks so much! I appreciate it! I had accepted the nomination and thought I tagged the people right that I nomiinated, but did you not get it?? Guess great minds think alike since we nominated each other 🙂


  3. Hi Meg, I love the name of your blog! I am so sorry for the loss of your brother! I have three sisters who are invaluable to me and I can’t imagine the sadness in losing them. I did lose my best friend suddenly last year but as you said, I found comfort in writing about it. My story is called “Amazing Grace” if you ever have time to visit my blog. You may enjoy my short tribute. Thank you for liking my scale photo! Yes, he is quite courageous. I have two sons, Different in every way. One likes spicy, the other plain. One is blonde, the other dark. The one in photo is the younger (13) and is fearless unlike his older brother who is more cautious by nature! Have great day!

    • HI! Thanks for your sympathy! Yes, losing a family member is a big chunk of your heart cut out! I just read about your best friend. I dread the day that happens, for Best Friends are priceless! Yes, writing is such a great outlet. I did write about my brother in a post called The Day the Birds Stopped Singing if you want to read it. It was for a writing course that WordPress had offered. Your sons sound like my daughters. They are as different as night and day!! Thanks for liking my orange photo challenge and glad I found your blog. I just started doing the photo challenges, they are fun. Enjoy the rest of your day!


      • I was dumbstruck when I rec’d your comment about “Amazing Grace” as I had just suggested moments before on your blog comment page you do so! I would love to read your post and will re-visit later today to do so. I love the photo challenges to! but the problem is they are my procrastination for writing which is my true love.

  8. I’m sure your childhood newspaper and adolescent journals are a treasure trove! I did similar scribblings when I was young, and now I am so thankful I did! I didn’t think about it at the time, but now I feel like I was preserving a part of my life that I can never get back.

    A day undocumented is a day lost!

    I look forward to more posts from you. Love your blog’s tagline!

    • Well Thank you 🙂 Yes it has exceeded my expectations, being that I really didn’t know what to expect. The biggest surprise may definitely be how blogging opened the door to meeting all kinds of interesting people! Who would have thought! One day I am blogging and the next I am addressing packages to Canada, that far off land where it always snows 🙂

  10. Fellow journal writer here, I bet your journals and newspapers are a great read for your family. I’ve thought about dumping mine, not sure I had anything interesting to say back then. It was more of an off loading exercise. Happy Easter weekend

    • Journals are so fun to go back and read. My kids have enjoyed parts of my journals that I have shared with them. Especially the parts of when they were really little.
      I do still have my family newspapers and yes they have been fun to read as well. Not that they had that much to say, but just fun to see what I thought was important back then. Don’t dump yours, I bet they will bring some smiles later on. They are a part of you.
      Glad you found my site, hope you enjoy it! My blog is quite the variety.
