• Early Thursday morning, my son and I took our dogs out for a walk even though it was very cold and the ground ice covered. At the end of our walk as we gingerly made our way up my driveway, he pushed the garage door code. It only opened about 3 inches. I suggested he try again and eventually with more effort in pushing in the numbers, he was able to see the door move properly. 

  • Can you figure out these riddles?  


    1. What am I?  I am not alive, but I grow; I don't have lungs, but I need air; I don't have a mouth, but water kills me. What am I?  


    2. Lighter than a feather, yet no one can hold it for long?

  • From the time my children were old enough to talk, when they told me, “I love you, Mama,” I would say, “I love you more.”  Sometimes they would respond with an amount. “I love you a million times more.” I would respond with a bigger amount. Usually I would win in the end, or someone would run out of bigger numbers.  Once, joking with my youngest, I said, “You love me that much, huh? Do you love me more than chocolate?” That stopped her in her tracks. She loved me a “million, billion, trillion more.” However, she really liked chocolate.  We laughed, and I promised I would never make her choose between me and chocolate.
