The five things you wish you'd known about me BEFORE…

The five things you wish you’d known about me BEFORE you became friends with me… I have been neglectful in acknowledging a few blog awards that I have been given. Sorry guys! I appreciate your thoughtfulness.   In April, M.J. Kane awarded me the “Lucky Meme” award. Because I have no manuscript in which to skip to a certain page and give you a preview, I couldn’t accept it. I appreciate it anyway!  Thanks M.J.! She, by the…

Thursday – Where Truth is the Dare

It’s Thursday again – and we all know what that means! Here is this week’s question. Truth? or Dare? What are you hoping for? (Hoping, not trying to make happen.) I am hoping for my blood platelet count to stabilize and quit fluctuating and increasing. (I have Essential Thrombocythemia; my blood marrow makes too many platelets.) (Only God can make that happen.) Thank you all for participating. Shop Amazon – Best Selling Products – Updated…

All Things Southern – Blue Plate Mayonnaise

It seems like Blue Plate Mayonnaise is a Southern Thing. Who would have thunk it (is that actually a word)?  My youngest daughter, Katie-Beth, lives in New York City. She assures me that there is NO Blue Plate Mayonnaise in New York City. IF there were, she would find it. That, and Zatarain’s New Orleans Traditional Creole Seasoning; which is why she calls her mama when her cupboard is bare.  Mama, living in Southern Louisiana, has an abundant supply at hand,…

From the Heart – A Mother's Love

         Another year has gone by and it’s Mother’s Day again. I sit here in anticipation, hoping as I do each year that the phone will ring and when I say hello, this will be the year that my oldest daughter will be on the other end.          It has been sixteen years since she last wished me Happy Mother’s Day. The pain in my heart increases each year and my…

Thrusday – Where Truth is the Dare

It’s Thursday again – and we all know what that means! Here is this week’s question. Truth? or Dare? Who came through for you at a time when you really, really needed it? Ummm…thinking. Actually, it’s a no-brainer. First and foremost, my Hubby has been there for me in my darkest moments. Secondly, my best friend.   Thank you all for participating. I had a short story published in honor of Mother’s Day. One of my…

All Things Southern – The Cookie

With my impending trip to New York City, I’ve been thinking about how quickly I can sneak out to my favorite cookie shop, Levain Bakery. It is actually one of the first places to which I learned to navigate my way to in the city. It didn’t take me long to learn that I had to simply board the 1 Train and exit at the Columbus stop, and after departing the subway station in to…
