Happy Father’s Day – June 20, 2010


Happy Father’s Day Pop.

I love you so very much.

There’s no way I can tell you,

How my life and heart you have touched.

I wish you had been,

My Pop all along.

Then things in my life,

Would not have gone wrong.

Nothing would make me happier,

Than what I’m about to say.

I wish that I lived closer,

So I could see you every day.

Fifty Years – July 26, 2018

Fifty Years

You’ve been married fifty years of your life.

It was then Sheila; you took Gary for your husband,
and Gary, you took Sheila for your wife.
Sometimes have been happy, and some have been sad.
Some times were good, and some times were bad.
But your love for each other made most of them glad.

Glad you met each other, and that together you stayed.
Glad that the decision to marry each other you made.
From then on, no decisions were made alone,
Whether to buy a house, have children, or what phone to own.

When traveling across the USA, away from work, going to “play.”
You and your children experienced different adventures every day.
If an adventure on the water, with your plans, was more in tune,
Then you used your houseboat you built on a pontoon.

While watching their Father, with the things he would make,
There were valuable life lessons the children would learn, and with them take.

Staying happily married for any number of years is tough enough,
But adding children to the mix can make it really rough.
Balancing Church, work, and home is a monumental task. Now for fifty years, with flying colors, this job you have superbly passed.

Mom, Dad, we love you both so very much, as
every minute and hour, since our birth, our hearts you continuously touch.

We Love You, Mom and Dad,

Your Children

Just knowing her uplifts you from within.                                                            Adored by her family and friends.                                                                      Caution in fun she throws to the winds.                                                              Queen Bee of her closest friends.                                                                          Unique in every imaginable way.                                                                          Inspires others in special waves.                                                                Enjoys life with surprising others on different days.

The Beatitudes – November 30, 2018


The Beatitudes


The Beatitudes were given to us during Jesus’ “Sermon On The Mount”.      They are blessings upon which all Christians can count.                                   They cover different aspects in each and every life.                                      Upon reading them, back to your memory they will come.                              For you will remember having heard them when you were young.                There are three elements of which the Beatitudes are comprised.                 When you think about it, these are facts you will realize.                                  The first element is the announcement of a blessing and why                                 we are considered blessed.                                                                           It starts out each Beatitude, as you see how we pass the tests.                      The second element describes the kind of person to whom Christ’s                         kingdom will go.                                                                                            When you read them, this fact too you will know.                                              Some aspect of the coming kingdom you will see,                                            When you become aware of element three.                                                        The Beatitudes are listed below,                                                                            So as you read them, all of the above they will show.

                                                     The Beatitudes                                                  

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.               Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.                            Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.                                      Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they                        shall be filled.                                                                                    Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.                                       Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.                                       Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.               Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,                                  for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.                                                         Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and they say all              kinds of evil against you falsely for my sake.                                          Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven,                          for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Now they’ve been refreshed in your mind.                                                          They’ll keep floating around for a time.                                                                The type of people the Beatitudes describe,                                                        Are the kind of people to which our actions should strive.                               If these Beatitudes from your memory seem to slip,                                         Just read this, and they should come back quick.

T E C H S – 6/3/18


Take patients vitals several times a day.

Ever ready to help patients in any way.

Cares about what the patients have to say.

Helps in even non medical ways.

Shares their knowledge every day.

Tech do what many people ask them to,

This goes for doctors, nurses, and patients too.

It seems they are always on the go,

Searching for things to and fro.

They start out searching on their wing,

But sometimes have to go on other wings for things.

They seldom come back empty handed,

Guess you could compare them to a bandit.

They check on patients night and day,

Ready to get whatever the patients say.

They come whenever you ring the bell,

Ready to clean up spills as well.

Working In A Nursing Home – 6/11/18

Working In A Nursing Home

Working in a nursing home isn’t very easy.

You have to have nerves of steel and be pleasing.

The short term patients are bad enough,

But the permanent residents are really tough.

Temporary patients will be gone soon.

Permanent ones are there for endless blue moons.

Temporary ones leave when therapy is done.

Permanent ones actions go on and on.

With both there are ones that only sleep.

With others their where a bouts are hard to keep.

Some will NEVER stop their chatter,

Others never show anything is the matter.

You always have to stay on your toes,

Because what’s going to happen next, no one knows.

M I G U E L – 6/12/18


Magnificent is this man.

Inspires in every way anyone can.

Giving comes naturally.

Uplifting when his face you see.

Energy seems never ending.

Love so easily he’s giving.

Put these together and Miguel appears.

A special person we’ve known and

worked with for 15 years.

He can also show a mischievous side.

Even when he tries to make it hide.

Whether at work or at play any day,

He gives over 100% in every way

To know him our lives are better by far.

To us he is a special star.

From Your Friends

Crossroads In Life – 6/14/18

Crossroads In Life

People are afraid of the crossroads in life.

For many can’t handle the turmoil and strife.

There’s one important thing they need to know,

It’s the turmoil and strife that helps them to grow.

There are certain things most people will automatically do.

These are the milestones all doctors watch babies and children go through.

Gain weight, correct motor skills like-turn over, sit up,

crawl, talk, walk and run.

For most parents, watching and waiting for these are a lot of fun.

School things are next- passing each grade, dating, dances and

Junior and Senior proms.

A big one is graduation, and then to college they go on.

Then come the biggest ones of your life,

Your career and whether or not you want a husband or wife.

Without even thinking about it, these crossroads came,

And for most people they were either easy or with a lot of pain.

Then you have to decide where to live and whether to buy or rent,

To have children or not, which way will make you content.

Some call these crossroads, and to others they are stages,

But it’s OK to need and get help and not go into rages.

It doesn’t mean you are crazy or weak,

If you can’t handle it and help you seek.
