The Argument for the Oxford Comma

I’m in the middle of a freelance editing job and the argument for/against the Oxford comma rears its ugly head once again. The Oxford comma was first seen in England in 1905 and agreed to by Strunk’s edition of The Elements of Style in 1918. The Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) still recommends its use. Some grammarians, […]

Words of Wisdom from a Very Special Friend

I met Jean Tate Howard just as she turned a very young 84 years. She was one of my first Legacy writing students. She wrote and spoke much wisdom into my life and into the lives of the other students in my class. The ladies from that first class would not stop writing and after […]

Memories Triggered

The busyness of life has taken me away from my writing for a while. However, my ponderings never stop. The simple things of life bring so many opportunities to marvel at God’s creations and goodness. As I helped my 94-year old mom back into bed this morning, the workings of the human mind made me […]

Your Golden Years can Really be Golden

Have you considered what you want your golden years to look like? Will you move from your home of thirty or forty years to another state to enjoy grandchildren? Will you move in with your son or daughter’s family or will they move in with you to share expenses or for you to help with […]

New Year’s Resolutions–NOT ME

New Year’s resolutions are for the birds. No, birds don’t even make New Year’s resolutions. I guess they know how temporary this world is, or maybe they just live for the day. My only resolution I might make if I had one of those lists would be to teach more by teaching less. I have […]

What Advice Would You Give?

A dear friend and father of three children, who I had the privilege to teach, passed away yesterday morning. What a shock! It was quick and sudden. With no time to prepare for the sudden loss, the family and community will need to take time to process the fact that Mike’s jolly smile will never be […]

Who’s Your Hero? Happy Birthday, My sister–My Friend!

Today is my sister’s birthday. It’s a big one–a milestone. It’s more than 60 but less than 80—Pros and cons there. But it doesn’t matter that the calendar shows an advanced year, she’s still my precious protector and mentor. Oh, she sees my faults, but she doesn’t care. She chooses to overlook them and looks […]

Dates We Never Forget

Certain anniversaries we never forget. Sunday, October 5, 1982, Daddy died. And even though it has been 32 years, I remember that early morning, standing at his bedside at 3:00 a.m. and realizing he was gone. He fought a two-year battle with colon cancer but decided he would rather die than suffer the ravaging effects […]

Any Mismatched Problems in Your Legacy?

Strange how our senses can remind us of past events. The smell of hot apple pie brings back memories of Mom’s delectable offerings right out of the oven, the crust browned with sugar lightly sprinkled on top. Sometimes when I pass the bakery in the grocery store, my sense of smell takes me back to […]

The Beginning of a Legacy

Consider your life and all the people you have met along the way and the impact each one has had on your life. I guess we will never know the impact that WE have had on other people’s lives this side of heaven. It reminds me of the little book I read several years ago—The Five […]
