I am so blessed to have a sister whom I have adored since the minute she was born. Incredibly, at age two, I remember holding her on the way home from the hospital. (no car seats in those days) It's just a flash of an image -- a snapshot -- a rosebud pressed between the pages of my memories.

I'm doubly blessed to have two granddaughters, and I hope and pray that they will weather the inevitable childhood squabbles and grow up to be close friends and companions, talking about everything and nothing. Laughing about everything and nothing. Supporting one another, creating their own snapshots, pressing their own rosebuds between the pages of their lives.

So Long marmee's musings

It has been a while since I have blogged at either this site or marmee's musings.

I have dozens of topics spinning in my head, but other demands and obligations detain my putting words to paper (or screen).

Part of the problem is keeping two blogs. I began marmee's musings to write about my faith experiences and spiritual matters. I began this site to write about everything else. But the truth is, faith and spiritual matters are such an intregal part of my life that I can't separate the two.

So, I'm not going to try anymore. I am closing marmee's musings (though I will keep it up for a while) and writing exclusively at here at Marmee's Corner. I like this title best because it is most reflective of the book Little Women and the character of Marmee in that novel, which I discussed in my first blog here.

My next goal: start writing!
