A Lovely Lady From Jamaica

One of our church members is moving back home to Jamaica. At the grand age of 83 she has decided to live out the rest of her years back home with her sister, daughter, grandchildren and other family. What an incredible life she's led so far. She has traveled the world, lived in England, here in Florida, other parts of the US and her home country. She never shies away from speaking about being black (as she says - never African American), about her love of Jesus, , family, friends, and children and how important it is to have a church family. She is stunning...always dressed … [Read more...]

Flying Ace But I’ll Stick to the Beach

Navy Lieutenant Commander Kevin Davis of Pittsfield, Massachusetts, a pilot of the Blue Angels died on April 21 during an air show in Beufort, South Carolina. His nickname was Kojak and he loved flying. The closest I've been to seeing the Blue Angels was time spend at the Naval Air Station Navy Lodge in Pensacola, FL. There are some good things about being married to a military man. This was one of the best. We got to see the Blue Angels practice almost every day while we were there. Plus we were right on the beach, had a kitchen in our room and it was so cheap! I hope to visit there again … [Read more...]

Missed Church Today

I hate it when I miss church. I feel like I missed out on something really good like piece of chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream on the side and lots of toppings. Why do I always compare things to food? I tried to wake up this morning when the alarm went off. I hit the snooze like 10 times. My head was pounding, my stomach hurt. I felt like I couldn't move. Last night the headache began. I can always tell when it'll be a bad one. Just a dull ache at first, then pain over my eyes, then feeling like more of a ditz than I already am. So the Topamax didn't catch it this time. Most of the … [Read more...]

Life is Just a Dream

I had one of those dreams last night, actually early morning where I din't want to wake up. It was one of the best. I know hearing about other people's dreams can be like torture so I'll keep it short. I was walking on the beach, with the waves just touching my pedicured feet (hah!). I was tan (double hah!) and wearing one of those long flowing dresses that beautiful tan women with pedicures on the beach wear... I felt so alive, so happy, so carefreee. No worries about sunscreen, or getting weak in the heat. I was so into my dream that when Peanut came in my room I almost jumped out of my … [Read more...]

Ahhh The Weekend

This has been such a busy week. Not one day has gone by without something odd happening that messed up my plans. Oh well, to be expected. Tomorrow I and Peanut can sleep in until 9 or so. Then we're gonna have a big breakfast. Then we get to work. Yup, I'm putting Peanut to work, on a Saturday - gasp! Hubby and I got her a new Nintendo DS Lite. She has been saving her money, but only had $82. We found a great deal at AAFES so we decided to pick it up for her. We're worse than kids and couldn't wait to give it to her. So she has to "earn" the rest of the money. Tomorrow we'll be cleaning … [Read more...]
