Happy Mother’s Day – 2018

When I was born, my mom was still in high school.  I can’t even imagine how hard that must have been for her.  I am sure she was scared and worried about the future.  However, she was determined and always did the best she could.

When I hear this song, I think about my mother.  I think about how hard those early years were for her.  I admire her for all she did and for always being there for me.

Prom Night – Not Right

It’s senior prom night, and I just dropped off Gwen.  This can’t be right.  It seems like only a couple of years ago, I was a high school senior.  I was the one running off to school events.

In reality, it’s been a couple of decades.  Where did all those years go, and how could they have disappeared in the blink of an eye?

I also wonder what is my mom thinking tonight?  Her daughter just drove her granddaughter to the senior prom.  That’s got to feel weird.


Busy Day for the Thaler Family

Gwen was chosen to represent Ardmore High School at the Limestone County Cookie Bake-Off today.  My mom and I were able to attend the event.  It was a lot of fun watching the kids working hard in the kitchen to get everything ready for the competition.

This quote is on the wall at Clements High School and I think it is something we should all remember.


This evening, I was in a Christmas program at The Brook Church.  Everything went well and the audience seemed to enjoy it.
