Hey! Where’d my blog go? And more important matters.

While I’m sure no one really noticed, *ahem* it has been over TWO MONTHS since my last post! Ack! Hellooooo… anybody out there? You’ve all gone on to more important things than checking in to see if I’ve come back from the dead, I know. After my first successful year of regular (okay, somewhat regular) […]

Thankful for New Beginnings

Thanksgiving pilgrim hat

While we give thanks for what we have–family, friends, a roof over our heads and food in our bellies—in our house this year, we’re even more thankful for what we’re about to have. Because of what we’ve been given: a new lease on life. Not once. But twice. And when I say we, I mean […]

Weathering the Storms for 8 Years Now

Scan10001

Eight years ago today, Danny and I said “I do” under a hot desert sun and embarked upon a journey that had already been set off course by the events of 9/11 just two months earlier. Danny was immediately furloughed from his job as a pilot and called to active duty with his Air Force […]

What’s Next, God?

Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans. – John Lennon Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand. –Proverbs 19:21 Man plans, God laughs. – Yiddish Proverb We knew that it was too good to be true, but couldn’t […]

Life is a Roller-Coaster, Enjoy the Ride!

Yesterday was family picnic day at Elitch Gardens in Denver for Frontier Airline pilots and of course, their families! Courtesy of the Frontier Pilots Association (FAPA). Great food, music, balloon artists and face painting made for a great start to an afternoon that was all about the kid in all of us. But, first, many […]

Southwest and the Unknown Frontier

United Express pilot

Okay, I admit it. I was excited to marry a pilot. I know it shouldn’t matter, but, isn’t it true that marrying a pilot is equivalent to marrying your prince in most little girl’s (and big girl’s) fantasies? There’s something about a man in uniform commanding a mega-ton aircraft with hundreds of lives in his […]

Up, Up and Away!

Ang-n-Fia

People come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime it is often said. When I first met Angie, I had no idea the source of comfort she would become for me for the next year and a half. She would say, “God brought us here (to Denver) for a reason, and […]

Forget Plan B. What’s Your Plan C?

Was planning on posting something light-hearted before Danny got off the phone and told me of the latest dirt being sifted through the airline rumor-mill. For a short while there, I thought we were about to have to come up with a Plan C. We don’t have a Plan C. Do you? I have no […]
