A Collection of Articles by Dayle

Dear friends,

If you are here on this page, thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you are well and enjoying God's blessings. I can hardly believe that it's been almost six years since I was an active blogger, and while I do miss blogging, and miss the blogging community, it was the right decision for me. 

I continue to be somewhat active on Facebook and invite you to find me there. As an update, life is full to the brim. Not perfect, not always terrific, but always big and beautiful. The Man and I just celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary, a number I find shocking. I am a grateful and busy Memaw, with my adorable grandchildren growing like weeds. My bonus grandson is now in college. My darling cupcake is now in 3rd-grade and my buckaroo boy will turn four in December. My, how time flies when you're having fun. In addition, my precious 91-year-old mother has lived with me since my dear father passed away in January of 2021. She is well and still enjoying quilting in her spare time. I consider it a joy and an honor to serve her during these sunset years of her life.

As for my writing, a steady flow of words is never far away from springing up inside of me, but I seldom write for publication anymore; the reasons are varied and many and I won't bore you with them all. Suffice it to say that I am happy with my current situation, enjoying this season of life. Should the right opportunity open up, I would jump in with both feet, but the writing market is much different now, and paying markets even fewer than ever for freelancers.

It's hard for me to believe that my writing career now spans a total of 35 years, with almost 250 articles published, which may not sound like many, but I am content knowing that, to the best of my ability, I have used the talents God entrusted me with, and attempted to give back in some small way.

Just for fun, I'm adding a sampling of my work over the last 35 years. I may change these as time goes by. 

Until next time, squeeze every ounce of goodness out of the life you have, and thanks again for stopping by.
