Love Your Talented, Beautiful, Successful Self

I believe God put a lot of thought into creating each of us when making us all unique, special and different. Also, I think that He gave us all a special purpose that is designed just for us to fulfill while we are living in the flesh. It is easy to look around and want to be that somebody else who we might think is more talented, more beautiful, or more successful. When we see the talents of others and compare them to our own, is it a fair comparison?  I remember as a young woman thinking how others around me seemed so much more talented in various ways than I was but some of them did not...

Read the Whole Thang, Then Look at the Picture

Sometimes something happens that totally takes me backward a few steps just for a moment in the mystery of wonderment.  This type of “thang” would instantly turn some peoples faces red, a fire would come from their eyes and they would get really upset.  Not me. When I am totally surprised by nonreality of something I look for the humor in it first.  After all some kinda way it has to be funny. Here’s the deal, this morning I got up early to post a new chapter of my book on my Nancy Lou Henderson Facebook page titled   Apartment, Snoopy, Corncob Pipe.  The picture I chose...

Apartment, Snoopy, Corncob Pipe

Frank had been searching for a new place for us to live in town but I was still surprised when he came home one afternoon saying he had found us a new home.

After entering the building through a big door in the middle of the building, a wide stairway led to the second-floor lobby which we walked through to get to another wide stairway that led to the third-floor landing where there were four...

Why Didn’t You Turn Off The Water?

Since we had moved to town, life had become less stressful for Frank and me. Our apartment rent was $25.00 cheaper which gave us more money to spend on food.  We still didn’t have a car, a phone, air-conditioning, washer, dryer, or a television but we thanked God every day for the extra food on our table and each other. When Frank got home in the evenings we had supper then we would take long walks on the sidewalks of downtown Ayer, looking in the windows of all the stores, or we would just sit on our fire escape balcony watching the stars come out at night. My days were full of...

Texas & The Plastic Fab. Co.

Frank and I were trying to save as much money as we could. Knowing in a couple of months when Frank’s school ended that it would be time for us to leave Ayer, Massachusetts meant that we would need extra money to ship our things home. Frank could fly Military Standby free but the extra money would be needed to buy my Student Standby airline ticket.  We were really hoping to get to fly together when we left for home. One Friday afternoon, my best friend came over to our house and told us that there was a job opening at the Union Products Inc. which was a Plastic Fabrication Company in...
