The above and below photos were taken Thanksgiving 2017. My sister and her family came to visit. As well as my neighbor and my neighbors parents. Talk about one of the best Thanksgivings I’ve ever had! When I was younger I moved around a lot. Nearly every five or six years we lived in a […]

May I see a show of hands, of those of you who think or believe (to be true) that you are the worst mother? Seriously, if I had a dime for every time I thought I was THE world’s worst mother – I could own Microsoft. Or be the female version of Bill Gates. I […]

Several years ago, I read a book, “One Thousand Gifts,” written by Ann Voskamp. What the author was essentially saying was to acknowledge and give thanks for whatever was going on in your life. Big or small. It blew me away, the simplicity of the meaning and why we should all be doing it. I […]

The other day I was cleaning out one of my junk drawers (I actually have several junk drawers in my bedroom closet – no lie!) and found a treasure. I found the journal that my mother had written for me. I had forgotten about it, so you could imagine my face when I saw it. […]

Purely an opinion, my opinion, on what makes us happy. Us meaning GreyFeathers… Us who are around 40-60 years old. Obviously, I don’t live with any of you. I don’t know where your daily ‘happy meter’ is set. I’m sure it changes from day to day or week to week, dare I say year to […]

Enzo was my German Shepherd. He was trained in Germany in a Schutzhund 3 program, graduated top of his class six months earlier than expected. We got him when he was 2 1/2  years old because that’s how long the training took. These dogs are trained for the police, or anyone that wants an attack […]

My oldest is a boy, 26, and in law school. He has Asperger’s Syndrome, which falls under the Autism Spectrum. He was 10 when he was first diagnosed, and yes, we knew something was a little off by the time he was two but no one knew anything back then about the Aspergers. What I […]

I have a 22 year old daughter who is soon graduating UF School of Nursing. She has been an old soul for as long as I remember. You can spot a nurse as soon as they are able to walk, at least that was my experience. She was a far better mother than I, always […]

My middle son is like no other child I’ve met. He’s “normal’ and normal and pretty normal. He was born cool, he remains cool, and was born in the wild… clearly his parents or family do not exist… because clearly, we are UNCOOL. He’s definitely his sign (Gemini, the twins) – one side of him […]

My 14 year old. He is one of my two book ends and clearly the baby. Adore and love him and love to cuddle him. He has a short fuse and full of fire, and also good at cooking. Been trying to push him in that direction, and some days he’s totally into it, and […]
