A Mother's Heart

Posted 02-26-2013 at 02:57 PM by Seawaters

I have shared this on MMC before, but I thought I would make it a part of my new "blog life."

A Mother’s Heart

Right now I am listening to merrychristmasradio.com which plays Christmas music all year long. I joined Live 365 so I could celebrate Christmas all the time, not just at Christmas. This was very special to me when I found it. You see, my son was diagnosed with leukemia on December 23, 2007; so my listening to Christmas music was curtailed somewhat. He had his bone marrow transplant in June, and I am living on a long in-drawn breath. In the meantime, I realize that there are few guarantees of happiness in life. Some would argue that there are NO guarantees at all. I say, "What about..." a jump into a pile of fall leaves, crisp October air, lengthening shadows on a late fall afternoon, a brilliant autumn in New England, soft autumn breeze, rain-washed sidewalks, children playing in the twilight, clapboard farmhouses, a starlit...

Kids and Writing

Posted 02-25-2013 at 11:24 AM by Seawaters

On the Countdown Forum and in some PMs, some of us have been discussing writing, or the fear thereof. If we adults have a fear of writing, can you imagine what little tykes feel? Since I was a third grade teacher, I thought I would share what I wrote in the process of obtaining my master’s degree. Maybe those of you who have a writing phobia may be helped in some small way. The way I discuss writing here is EXACTLY what I do—I use a writer’s notebook and I use magazines and other writings to glean ideas and word choices. Thanks for reading!
I remember sitting in school on several occasions when the teacher would announce an assignment of “a theme,” much in the same way as the teacher in A Christmas Story. I was a lot like Ralphie, the main character. Even though I loved writing, I hated the dreaded theme assignment in which the teacher chose what we were to write about. Unlike Ralphie, though, I did not consider using the theme to inform

Christmas Countdown - 2011

Posted 12-13-2011 at 07:42 PM by Seawaters

I am originally from the South, but NEVER heard of Wawa!!!

QUOTE=sugar142286;405823]Hi everyone! Hope you're having a great evening. DH, the kids, and myself had a great time at Holiday Lights on the Lake and then we went through the city looking at people's lights. We were out for about two hours.

We stopped at a Sheetz and got cappuccinos and homemade Christmas cookies. (It's a convience store - big up here in the North - kind of like a Wawa for you people down in the South.) They make their own food and such. Anyhow, we had a great time.

We're were watching, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas", the movie version, but EA has to watch Dora before bed. She will be heading there shortly, so I will be able catch the end. I am going to watch White Christmas here at 10:45 EST.

I hope you guys all have a great night. I am going to check out the rest of the boards and see what everyone has been up to lately! [/QUOTE]
