Fathers Day is tomorrow, it has been creeping up and almost catching me unawares. As I’m sitting here pondering my dad and the dads I know, I’m leaning toward writing about a dad and his girl/s. I wish you could see my son with his 3 girly girls. He’s a tough daddy, a busy guy, but not too busy to take his little ladies on a date. I’ve got a kind hearted nephew who patiently…Keep reading
The Children God Gave Us My last baby is 19 this week. I suppose he’s not a baby anymore. My thoughts about him have provoked me to write this post.

Although it was culturally shocking to all my senses, I was glad that my husband was so eager to share his life with me. Gracias a Dios que I spent my introduction to the Greene family with just my mother in law and Ben at first. The rest of the cousins I’d meet at the Manse.…Keep reading
I’m going to tell you about my New England connection, si pues, this Mexican-American has a few stories and an array of emotions as I discovered Bens gringo world. Nowadays it’s nothing new to find one of mi gente on the East Coast, but back in the mid 80s when I started the brown Mrs. Greene journey I really felt all alone. Mixing cultures and social economic lives did add to my conundrum. Hay si,…Keep reading
