5 Minute Stories

Dear Readers,

I’ve never mentioned in my blog that I’ve had many, many short stories published in both print and online. I’ve brought together a few of my previously published stories in a collection titled: 5 Minute Stories.

These are delicate stories of a young girl growing up on the Nebraska prairie. Take a break from this rush-rush world and enjoy visiting another place with a quieter pace.

Heartwarming 5 Minute Stories, with gentle family values, also makes a special gift when it appears on the eReader of someone you love.

I’d love to hear which of the Minute stories is your favorite – you can also go to Amazon and download the stories individually.

Thank you for stopping by!

The Promise of Spring

This morning I smelled spring in the air.

I know, it’s early – not even the Ides of January yet. But spring floated on the air, just the same. 6:45 a.m., 45 degrees F, the deck door slightly ajar. In stole the scent of spring on thin, delicate feet, tip-toeing through the forest high in the fir trees, pirouetting across the meadow, and slinking in through the narrow opening of my door.

Yes, winter could return. But the promise of the ages came into my room early this morning – the fresh, loamy aroma of LIFE waking up in the earth, of the long-dream hibernation coming to an end, of a hunger for new fruits.

Something new is afoot.

Wake Up!
