After a period of almost two years, I am once again working on my site. For a while, there will be broken links here and there, but eventually, the site will once again become what I planned it to be.  In the mean time, here are a few pages I can recommend.  There is a little something for everyone....

~New on the site~

It just so happens that our sister Leal writes poetry.  Recently she found a poem that she had written in 2002 that reminded her of when she and my husband John were kids so she sent us a copy.   I enjoyed it so much that I made her a page and asked if I could share it with my visitors.

"Reminiscing" ....by Leal Abbott, 2002

Fairies and elves have invaded the Abbott house.  And that's a really good thing!  Come visit the Fairy pages at my place.  There are FREE Background graphics, a game, an original poem and some beautiful Fairy images for you to enjoy.  Plus a few good links to finding out more about Fairies on the Web.

My Personal Journey of Faith is explored.   Unlike so much of my writing, this subject is difficult for me to open-up about.   I consider myself to be a rather private person, one who finds it hard to share inner-most feelings with others.  However, I realize that each of us is here on this Earth for only a finite time.  Because my Christian Faith is so fundamental in my life, I am compelled to share it with others.  Please, do not be offended by this.   If you (the reader) choose to listen, then listen with an open heart and mind.   If your beliefs lie elsewhere, then go in Peace to follow your own path.  Just do so with tolerance and true felt love and compassion for others who may be very different from you.  We all should long for Peace and Justice for all the Earth's creatures.  It is necessary for the survival of our world.....'Pray thee listen, Do not treat life with little regard'.

There is MY REMEMBRANCE of a very important Woman -- My Mother-In-Law.   I loved her dearly and hope you will come for a visit and hear a little about her life, before she succumbed to the terrible disease of Alzheimer's.
