world domination
yesterday hubby stopped by Walmart to purchase the monopoly game
since we were going to be snowed in.
did i mention i hate playing games!
around 6:30pm the games began - son, fiancee, hubby and i.
did i mention she's good at her family's madeup rules.
did i mention i hate playing games!
right away we could see she was out to win and win big.
strategy was her strength and boy did she lineup with hubby.
me - i'm slow at figuring out things plus i was the banker.
end result - hurt feelings - mine of course.
i don't do well when hubby lines up against me even in a game.
isn't he suppose to defend me, protect me! lol even in a game.
End Result - hubby went bankrupt first, then son's fiancee
and well of course that left son and me.
He played pure - meaning by the rules and won
Hands Down!
i don't like that little top hat(e) dude!
no more playing the game - i'll stick to watching!

Merry Christmas

from our home to yours.
Tis the day of Christmas and i am only one stirring
my holey socks are thrown down on the floor under other clothing in fear
that someone might find them and fill them with beer.
dreaming of sugar plums, but realize someone switched them for prunes.
daddy in his ole t-shirt and i in my ratty robe
crawled out of bed with aches and pains to turn on the stove.
when we heard such a clatter looked to see what's the matter
Santa had landed on a lost needle flouncing around like Mad Hatter.
no goodies for us this day, he said as he jumped on his sleigh
and then he flew up up up and away coming back on another wintry day.
feeling in a jovial Christmasy mood. pray all your coming new days will be filled with
awe and wonder.

Happy 30th Anniversary

every day has been living in paradise for me
i married the most wonderful man
reared three beautiful sons
lived life beyond my
greatest expectations
with more to come
this evening we return to that quaint little village where we were married
his homeplace
to celebrate a quiet dinner and a long, cool, breezy winter walk
to reflect on what we've experienced together
and to dream about what is yet to come.
Happy 30th Anniversary my darling, my love.

Life - One Continuous Line Drawing

Dancing Strings
i could call it
Line Dancing
i began to doodle one non-stop line
thru this artists' eyes
it became
a tribute to how God has grown my son in his music this year
no hair for a reason
no hair for a season
i just like bald
Do you ever wonder what your life looks like?
how your line has affected others in this world?
its one continuous fantastic line
created by The Master Creator Himself
believe it or not but 'tis true forevermore.

Wonders never cease
the amazement of love

Open Broken Heart

While on my cruise i was reading a book that ask this question:
When do I experience an open heart?
this journal page is what came from
that question using watercolor pencils, typography and sketch pencil.

the love of God
that He would send His Only Son
a sacrifice for all man-kind
it seems so simple
i have sons and can't imagine
this i do know He has changed my life
thank you God for loving me that much

Motherhood and Passion

while on our cruise our oldest decided to bless us with a wonderful email. totally a surprise!
snippets of his email:
"I feel like God has been breathing so many creative business and music ideas inside of me,
i feel so alive. God is good. I know this because He gave me both of you to love, shape and help direct me.
Mom you taught me how to live a life of passion! Passionate about every aspect from school to business to family. I love you so very much! You're my hero, life coaches and the filter for the way I'm trying to live a big life that looks beyond just the now and myself and is always searching for how i can grow and help others."
wow!! now that snippet was a tearful, loving great awaking for his dad and i.
this is what a mom lives for!!
living passion
