About Me

My photo


Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Scribbles and Scrambles ~ Can't Stop Christmas an Odd Ode


oh the snow we did get.

the powder did fly.

the icicles grew

and the cars they did try.


Christmas still came

with windy whispers,

snow plumes and

great gusty gasps

and a whole lot less folks

than we normally have.


the turkey fed fewer

and the pickings were slim.


the glittery snow blanket

cosseted the usual din,

the last-minute rushin, the one-more-thing trip to the mall,

and those problems didn't change

one thing at all.


Christmas, whether you know the real meaning of Christ and His gift,

is about loving, and giving and sharing yourself, as He did.


Traditional not,

skinnier and sparse

Christmas still happened and I consider myself blessed.
