Journals noted simple joys: morning
woodstove fire-building fired me up.
Letters from Mom, Joyce, Ruthie and
Grandma Ribbens brought smiles.
University of Maryland classes in
Gerontology and Recreation renewed my
devotion to Seniors’ Ministry at DCCRC.
I rejoiced with Joyce welcoming baby Clara
and with Nancy for her Silver Spring B & B.
But grieved my failures as wife and mother.
Duff graduated from Takoma Academy;
sang “You Are the Light of the World”
in Godspell. How many dear words from this
my favorite DCCRC summer musical
still rev me up today!
