Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different.

Here we are on Z in the A-Z Blog Hop. I’m sad it’s the last one. I’ve enjoyed each and every letter.

T is for Turkey’s

Welcome to this week’s A-Z blog hop. The letter of the week is T, and for me, T is for turkeys.

“Q” is Worth 10

It’s fun Friday! Welcome to the A-Z blog hop. This week’s letter is Q.

In Words With Friends the letter Q is coveted because it’s worth ten points, but it’s also dreaded because it’s very hard to use. Unless you know the words “qi” and “qat”, you have to have a “u” to use . . . → Read More: “Q” is Worth 10

N is for Needs

Welcome to the fun Friday A-Z blog hop. This weeks letter is N and “Needs” came to mind when thinking about being able to find and follow one’s passion.

Why Believe?

I was brought up a believer – in Jesus Christ, that is. There was never a doubt in my mind from the time I was seven years old in First Communion Class in the Catholic Church that Jesus Christ, and God, His father, made me.
