As we close the door on another year, we start a new blank slate - anything is possible. I have always looked at a new year with eyes wide open to new possibilities and a hopeful heart.

One reason I love spending time with young children is I find it joyful to revel in their wide-eyed wonder at the world.

My daughter and I made plans to go see the new Charlotte's Web movie just the minute it was released in our area after having seen the initial previews.

Sometimes there is no accounting for our fears. Now, I am not talking about the rational, based-in-logic fears.

I am always on the look-out for new books on Lyme disease. Most are scientifically-based and might offer a glimmer of hope through new treatment options within the medical world.

Driving in to town one day late this summer, a warning light came on in my little yellow VW Beetle. I knew just where to go to have it checked out.

Ever since the summer day that Channing arrived on our farm, things have seemed a little brighter around here.

The final round of hay has been put up, and the colorful leaves have blown free from our majestic old trees.

Baseball, to me, is still the great American pastime. So many of my memories from childhood revolve around playing baseball in the side yard with my sisters and brother or fielding a team with lots of cousins in the wide open grassy area near my Aunt Dee's pond.

The next afternoon after this tragedy, a beautiful autumn day, I was pleasantly surprised to come home and find our little Amish neighbor girls, Anna and Lizzie, here in our back yard, picking up walnuts as we had told them they were welcome to do.
