Acute Angle

We should have known it was a bad sign when Dalton’s kindergarten teacher at Lakeview, Mrs. Curtis, sat us down in those tiny little chairs and said that our son was having difficulty with his color words. I remember looking at her and saying, “But, his last name is a color word: Brown!” Yeah, he’s…

September has always been my favorite month.  It’s a great combination, like Marie Osmond, who was a little bit country, and Donny Osmond, who was a little bit rock and roll.  We get to enjoy warm days and cool nights; the perfect mix of summer and fall all rolled into one.  I love smelling a…

Big Rocks and Beer

Sooner or later everybody has a first job.  These days, it seems like the older you are the younger you were when you had your first money-making venture.  I was doing an icebreaker activity at church once when we all had to share what our first dip was in the career pool.  There were a…

Nasal Nostalgia

Some of my favorite authors have an impeccable ability to paint pictures with their words.  Roxanne Roberts is the author/artist who created this masterpiece, which actually involves paint, and I love it so much: “Think of your life as a can of white paint. Each significant experience adds a tiny drop of color: pink for…
