Any adult who spends even fifteen minutes outdoors
finds himself drawn back to his own childhood.
When I went out to spend my Tuesday evening with Leah, she and her Mommy had been out playing in the driveway with sidewalk chalk. Leah had left me a message there on the pavement.
It reminded me of when our family lived in Baumholder, Germany. I was in the 4th grade and the activities for children were of the 'make your own fun' kind. (Actually, that's the way things were back then.) I remember that my friends and I spent hours playing either Jacks or Hopscotch. I had my own set of Jacks that I kept in a little draw-string bag and my pieces of chalk (usually snatched from the black board at school) were wrapped up in a piece of paper.
Who knew then that what I was experiencing at the time would be brought back to me as a memory some 50 years later, initiated by something my granddaughter had done. How special is that?
I'm having a good day today. It's beautiful outside and the sun is shining brightly.

Welcome to Weezers Haven. Why 'Weezer'? It's what my grandbabies call me and that in itself is another story (ever see 'Steel Magnolias'?)
I am the mother of three daughters and the grandmother to four granddaughters. (Even the dog is a girl.) I am a retired pediatric nurse, a Christian of 'getting stronger' faith, and a reliable prayer warrior. I love to eat bacon cheeseburgers and drink too many diet cokes. Diet A&W is my biggest weakness.
I am not a person of great or many words. Here, you won't find long compositions. I am a visual person and often use my own photos to make a point or illustrate an idea.
I am devoted to my blogger friends. If you visit, please leave a greeting. I love to know who's stopped by.
When a daughter begins to ask about the past, she is beginning to spread her wings.
A woman needs to understand where she comes from so that she may better choose where she wants to go.

Parents rejoice in watching their daughter go about her life. Her confident stride tells of a woman comfortable with who she's become, and happy with where she's heading.
