Happy Birthday to My Husband Rudy!


Happy Birthday to my best friend and hubby Rudy! I love you more today than the day we married. You love me just the way I am. Through my weirdness and flaws. You “get” me!

We have been through some fierce trials. Our Lord blessed us through them all.

Thanks sweetheart, love you! Hope you have a wonderful birthday!

Me & my hubby Rudy!



Happy 4th of July!

In the year of 1776

That paper was decreed –

They were tired of oppression

And wanted to be freed

They wrote a Declaration

So the whole world would see –

This was, “the home of the brave

And the land of the free”

They signed that piece of parchment

The leaders of this land –

Knowing, divided they would fall

But, together they could stand

A new world lay before them

Untamed from shore to shore –

They swore the would protect it

If it meant going to war

Battles have been fought –

And many lives have been lost –

So sad something so basic

Has such a high, high cost

‘Seems freedom is a luxury

There’s some would bind us all –

Like then, together, we can stand

But divided, we will fall

More than two hundred years

Have past by since that day

That each of us celebrate

In our own different way

We should be proud and thankful

Pay our share of the cost –

Not take freedom for granted

For it easily could be lost



Enjoy Your Freedom
and God Bless Our Troops


A very special thanks to my dear husband Rudy for his service in the Navy, my uncles Joe, Hubert, Arnold, Curtis and Estes (whom I never met because he gave his life on Tuesday, July 25, 1944. Buried during WWII in Normandy American Cemetery; Colleville-sur-Mer, France). Special thanks also to my brother-in-law Jeffrey, my nephew Keith, and to all my cousins who have served.

A special thanks to every man and woman who has ever put on a uniform to protect our freedom and our wonderful nation


In God We Trust
Pray for America!

To My Daddy and My Daughters Daddy!


What Makes a Dad 
God took the strength of a mountain, 
The majesty of a tree, 
The warmth of a summer sun, 
The calm of a quiet sea, 
The generous soul of nature, 
The comforting arm of night, 
The wisdom of the ages, 
The power of the eagle’s flight, 
The joy of a morning in spring, 
The faith of a mustard seed, 
The patience of eternity, 
The depth of a family need, 
Then God combined these qualities, 
When there was nothing more to add, 
He knew His masterpiece was complete, 
And so, He called it … Dad
