May Flowers

Posted by Karen Hessen on Friday, May 27, 2011, In : Spring 


Isn't this gorgeous? A field of red clover near our home.

I look forward to this every spring. The area we live in grows crops for seed. Red clover is one of those crops and undoubtedly the most gorgeous. 

The big May birthday event is over for our family. Doug is busy trying out all of his new gismos and gadgets. 

I have had a devotional published in the Secret Place, Summer, 2011 edition. You can pick up a Secret Place at any American Baptist or First Christian (Disciples of Christ) Church.

A Busy Week

This is a very dark picture of my sister, Amy, my aunt, Francie, and I enjoying lunch at Claim Jumpers a couple of weeks ago. My aunt was visiting her grandson and family in Portland.

Kurtis, Doug and I spent Mother's Day with Doug's mom, Louise. She will be 92 in a couple of weeks.

I think this picture of Kurtis is a good one. He is quite handsome, and that is not just a mom talking. For the first time, I am seeing Kurtis at his actual age, 35. I don't know why I have never seen him like that before. He has always been about 19 in my eyes.

The physiatrist thinks Kurtis may have a tiny amount of movement in his frozen left ankle now. Kurtis has been diligent about exercisin...

Mother's Day Wishes for Bio Moms

Posted by Karen Hessen on Friday, May 6, 2011, In : Adoption 


Isn't this flowering cherry tree in our yard beautiful? The tree is over 50 years old and never disappoints us with its beauty.

It is nearly Mother's Day. This is the time of year when I think the most about the biological mothers of my children. Tina's mother passed away a few years ago from breast cancer. Tina had spoken to her on the phone and has met some of her bio mom's siblings. Kurtis' mom still lives in Oklahoma to the best of my knowledge.

I can not help but wonder what goes through ...
