  • The signs are all around us; we just have to open our eyes

    My son-in-law made his request months ago. He wanted to surprise my daughter, his wife, with a trip to Hawaii for their 20th wedding anniversary.

    Knowing I was planning to attend my 15th college reunion and would be in the Northeast in early June, he decided to organize their venture to coincide with mine.

    This gave all of us an opportunity to stretch our faith—theirs in relinquishing “control” of their children and mine in renewing my parenting skills, albeit from an older and wiser place!

    Thus began the long-range preparations.

  • Summer school for young team

    The weather is so hot that for a moment you hope you could hear these words over the public-address system at the West Brunswick High School baseball field: “Game canceled.”

    Instead, you pay two dollars for a drink and a Snickers candy bar (“Not going anywhere for a while?”) and get set to watch the Southwest Trojans play New Hanover in a Junior American League baseball game.
