Though cleanliness is next to godliness, I will probably leave her nose prints on the car window a wee bit longer.
The new year is a time for new beginnings. New goals. New starts. Think about starting the new year by making a commitment to support local events.
As always, the Tri-Cities area has a few opportunities to enjoy as we ease into another new year. Now that all the holiday frenzy is behind us, perhaps you may find time to relax and appreciate our local talent who work so hard to provide excellent productions.
This season of the year can become quite busy for most with holiday cheer, decorating, shopping and wrapping. Try to seek a moment for supporting the local community.
I love this time of year as we visit with cherished friends and family in the anticipation of celebrating the birth of a sweet baby king whose first few days were in a stable in Bethlehem surrounded by barn animals and a few curiosity seekers.
The holiday season is upon us and, with it, comes a flurry of activities to enjoy in our area.
Being on a college campus during the fall season is a joy. Being on a college campus for a football game is thrilling. Living on my alma mater’s college campus during the fall football season is priceless!
Magical ~ the word that comes to mind when thinking of all the festivities surrounding my goddaughter Lindsay and her now husband, Matt’s wedding. Fall is a magical season as well, chock full of wonderful local offerings.
Susan’s summer has been filled with new adventures ~ including a return to her college campus in a brand new role. This week, she talks about her adjustment, the Olympics and getting ready for fall and all of its festivities.
My latest visit to the Tri-Cities started with a (big) bump in the road. Fortunately, though, it didn’t hijack the entire weekend and we had the opportunity to enjoy some great local shows.
Life changes have been a theme for much of the past year and it looks like the summer might deliver one of the biggest ones yet.
New adventures just seem to abound during this transitional season in my life ~ and rites of passage are pretty plentiful too at this time of year.
Locally, Dobyns-Bennett recently had another band reunion for classes 1969-1973 to celebrate the 90th birthday of their band director Jewel Tilson. Joining the 25 or so present was Ernest Buchanan who was the band director of John Sevier Junior High during those same years.
OK, I’ll admit that I am apparently getting more mature ~ though being around college “kids” and being a little silly with my sister is giving me a more youthful perspective.
Terrorist attack hits close to home, reminding me how very fortunate we are and how important it is to be better stewards of the blessings, grace and mercies that we have so generously been given.
