The Intention of My Blog

Welcome, my beloved readers!

In case you're wondering, it's not a typo up there for you see the definition of goodly is:

used as an adjective to describe something
1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I am a mother who home educates her children; I would be pleased if you'd look around. You never know if I might have something to your liking. I've blogged about different topics. I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Please remember to subscribe to my blog, using any variety of methods, which are below to the right, including Facebook.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

I'm Grieving Over My Mom-In-Law's Passing

Hi Everyone,

I am finding it hard not to write about my mother-in-law.  She was a special woman in so many ways.  She was a mother to many children, a grandmother to even more, and also a great grandmother.  She was a blessing to me, too, understanding what it was like to lose a mother to cancer.  

The Villanuevas, including my mother-in-law, have always had a knack for cracking cascarones (eggs with confetti in them) on each other's heads during Easter.  They often enjoyed pulling pranks and joked around with each other too, and that's how I choose to remember her.  I smile just thinking about how she'd chide her grown up children, like if they were little kids.

I am going to miss my mother-in-law, Ramona Villanueva.  May the wonderful memories we have of her live on in our hearts.  May we pass on the same spirit of love of life to our children and their children.

May God, in Jesus' name, give us all grieving family and friends a peace beyond our understanding and the strength to carry on.
With love,



  1. I'm sorry for your family's loss. Your family is in my prayers. - Angel

  2. Angel,

    Thanks, my friend. It's been a long road. We need all the prayers for strength to carry on.


  3. She sounds like a wonderful women! The egg tradition sounds wonderful.

  4. JDaniel4's Mom,

    Thanks for commenting. Yes, she was lots of fun and a good conversationalist. I enjoyed our time together. I still can't believe she's gone.
