About me...

Pop the lid on my Mason Jar and meet my family. Jim {Jimma} and I have four kids, Creston (Ashley), Jami (Matt), Brandon and Chance. Our grandkids, Cade, Kirby, Eisley, Beck and Reed bring us more joy than any Mason Jar could ever hold. I am counting my blessings over and over and thanking God for His amazing love and grace.

Buttons to Push

Sometimes a little mishap can turn an ordinary day into one that’s brimming with smiles.

Jim and I were chatting with Chance on the Internet yesterday. I heard what sounded like a phone ringing and received an error message on the chat window that the video had ended. Puzzled, I asked Chance if he had done anything different and he said maybe he hit the wrong button. I decided to start exploring the different buttons and hit one to see what would happen. Imagine my surprise when Chance typed, "I can see you!" At that point I was smiling so much you would have thought he was seeing us in person. Even though Chance wasn't on a computer with a camera, he could see us and get a little bit of home in Afghanistan. And that's almost as good as it gets.


  1. What a fantastic surprise!! Now, can you remember what you did so you can do it again?????? That's always my problem. Glad you, Jim and Chance had a special blessing today!

  2. I was so excited, I didn't think I'd be able to remember it, but managed to find the button again yesterday. Jami asked me how long that button had been there. LOL
