I have to been alert to new possibilities and avenues to watch and assist people. I have always been a people watcher. No, … Continue reading I.C.U.
I have a lovely, creative friend who is a bit of a wordsmith. The way she plays with words astounds and amazes me, and always bring a smile to my face.

It was 6 degrees F (-14 C) outside, so I was savoring my warm bed while chatting with God. I asked Him what wonderful things He's going to share with me today. … Continue reading Smokin’ hot
Woo hoo! It is that time of year again. The table is laden with nachos, chicken wings, chips and dips. It is time to celebrate.
