The Snowpocalypse of 2021 has been a challenge to all of us – some more than others. While many report spending days without heat and water, David and I experienced only two days of rolling blackouts, and we had no water outages. […]

Make it a great day!

Many opportunities to be grateful have presented themselves this week – a home that keeps us comfortable even in the worst weather, a full refrigerator and pantry so we don’t have to make a run to the store, and internet service so we can keep in touch when church is canceled, to name a few. […]

For the last few days, Facebook, email, texts and all other social media have been full of messages related to the beginning of another year. Although most are similar in content, there is a definite difference in attitude. […]
