Holiday’s

Father’s Day (My Father, Mother, holding my sister Caroline, Joy and me) Regardless of pandemics, financial crises, or social unrest, we do not want to forget to honor our fathers; you still have time to buy a card! I lost my father more than thirty years ago, but it does not mean that I do…

The Dialogue

“Ye are the Light of the World” In 2001, Andrea Yates did the unthinkable, and murdered her children; sadly, it appears that another mother in Arizona has committed the same heinous act. Tonight I found a sermon my Mother wrote, in response to the events that occurred almost twenty years ago. Her first question was:…

The Dialogue

Merry Christmas to Kate, from Mother Mother sent this note to Kate in a Christmas card: “Maybe one of these will be valuable. Merry Christmas, Love, Stella “This one came from your grandmother. I found it when I was sweeping where her sewing machine was sitting.” It is no secret that my Mother lived her…

An Unexpected Gift Going through a stack of music books, in my office, I came across a book with my Father’s handwriting. It is an instructional book, teaching one how to be able to play popular Latin music, on the guitar. Though the copyright for the book is 1974, this edition was published in Puerto…

The Dialogue

“Here’s a little help with your deposit!”     I will admit that is the line that has kept me from previously sharing this letter. My Mother did not put an actual date on the letter, as so often was the case, and I foolishly, so often did not keep the envelopes letters were mailed…

The Dialogue

A Just Because Note “Your roses may have thorns but don’t forget, your thorns may have some roses too, the God of great compassion loves you yet, and he will never fail to see you through.” ~ Stella L. Mosqueda ~ This note so epitomizes my Mother. I have no idea what I was dealing…

The Dialogue

Los Dones Espirituales I have so little written by my Father, verses my Mother. On this little piece of paper, he wrote out the gifts of the Spirit. I so wish I had a tape of him preaching.

The Dialogue

One of Her Bible’s I have written, in the past, about how my Mother passed out her treasures, while her children could make use of them. The pieces that I own, which were my Mothers are honestly too treasured by me to be used, things like serving dishes and a cream and sugar set, which…
