Blowing Bubbles

As I sat with my two-year-old Granddaughter outside, she wanted to play with bubbles. As I opened the bottle, I could see the gleam in her eye and the anticipation of what was to come.

As I started blowing the bubbles, she laughed and giggled, all while running after them to pop whatever she could. Shortly after that she turned to me and said, “I can do it”.

I gave her the bottle, she pulled out the stick and tried to blow on it. Tiny bubbles started to form and out they came. One by one, and two by two, off they went flying away.

To watch this child be some happy made me wonder, as adults when did we stop blowing bubbles?

The simple act of blowing a simple bubble even gave me a small bit of joy. When I asked her why she liked the bubbles so much, she replied “They’re fun”. That’s it| A simple answer.

Maybe as we grow into adults, we forget about the simple things in life that make us happy?

My Top 3 Father’s Day Gift Ideas For 2021

My father Rev. Frank R. Agnew passed away on August 27, 1993.

I used to love watching him play the piano, sing and preach. He was loving, giving and when I had my children he was an awesome Grandfather. With Father’s Day fast approaching I thought I would share my top three picks that I think are great gifts for great Dad’s.

Number 3

Root Beer Science Kit by DYI Brewery. I realize that not every man drinks beer or alcohol. Here’s an alternative to give the best man in your life.

At just $16.00 I think it’s a great deal and a way to make some memories with Dad.

Number 2

This Members Mark Sam’s Club 4 Burner Gas Grill is user friendly and priced at just $399.00 it’s a grill of a deal.

I will be getting this for my husband this year. His friend bought one and my husband really likes it.

Number 1

Any gift that’s Handmade By Kids are number one in my book. I found this great website πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†with affordable craft ideas and more for you to do with your child or children.

My wish for you is to celebrate the man in your life with love and happiness.

Happy Father’s Dad to all the Dad’s and Grandfather’s out there.

Stuck

Dear Readers;

I want to apologize for not writing in such a long time.

I guess one could say that I’m kind of stuck in a rutt.

With the past year’s events including life happenings, I guess I felt that I had no direction.

How can I write about things that are meaningful if I myself don’t believe in what I’m writing.

I feel that I’ve lost my real purpose in life. After twenty nine years in the medical field as a Respiratory Therapist and loosing yet another Job (just over broke) what does an over fifty year old person do?

My husband has had many health challenges these past six years so just juggling work and helping him has been challenging.

I know I will prevail and figure things out. Keep pushing forward that’s my motto.

5 Comfort Christmas Gifts For 2020

2020! I thought about what this year has been like for most of the world. A crazy pandemic kicked it off along with people being told to stay at home, work from home if they could. Our children were rooted up from their known comforts of school playgrounds, socializing with other children, and having their own time away from family.

2020 has brought a chance to look back at what brings us comfort in all the craziness. This year I decided to focus on my top 5 comfort picks for gifts. Not just to buy at the holidays but any day.
