sister pearson


abraham  maslow argued that instead of spending time investigating the behavior & treatment of dysfunctional people, psychologists should study the lives and habits of the self-actualized person.

here are just a few of the people which maslow believed were self-actualized: thomas jefferson,  abraham lincoln, albert einstein, jane addams, william james, albert schweitzer, aldous huxley and  elanor roosevelt

maslow said,  “The study of self-actualized people must be the source of a whole new universal science of psychology.”   i agree with abe,  and if he were alive today, i suspect maslow would definitely have added one more person to his list – and, today is her birthday!

meet beth:

Beth Pearson

for most of us,  making maslow’s list would be quite an accomplishment – for beth it would be just a start.  sister beth pearson is one of our planet’s finest people and there aren’t enough kind words in our vocabulary to properly describe her.  she has chosen to spend her life serving God and his people, and i can’t imagine there’s a person better suited for the job.  thank you, beth – you are so appreciated.  may this be a joyous year for you filled with peace, love and laughter.

happy birthday.

extra extraordinary

to most people, these may look like ordinary playing cards.

but they’re not  . . . 


and these things, they may not appear to be extraordinary either.  but they are.

all of these things are my treasures.  the cards belonged to my grandmother and she used them weekly for her bridge games.  she loved bridge.  she also loved to knit and sew.  the scissors were in her sewing kit.  you may be wondering about the white plastic item . . .  


it was gram’s rain bonnet!  

she always kept an emergency rain bonnet in her bag along with her wallet and a handkerchief.  although i don’t ever recall gram wearing perfume, her purse always  had a very distinct fragrance from the perfume she would dab onto the handkerchief inside her bag.  i loved that smell.  when gram died, i saved all of her purses and her wallet as well.  

i stored all of her purses inside of a suitcase that i would open on occasion just to smell the fragrance that reminded me of gram.  one day the fragrance was gone and  i was heartbroken.   but, as luck would have it, on the same day the fragrance disappeared, i was going through some of the things i had saved from her house and i found a fancy glass bottle.  it was wrapped up in newspaper, inside a box labeled “gram”.  i opened the bottle and smelled the inside. it was the fragrance she used on the hankies!  i only open it sparingly – maybe once a year or so.

in my treasure chest is this card which gram received from my grandfather exactly 78 years ago today on her 29th birthday.   september 29th, 1934.

on september 29th in 1905, the world became a better place.  i think of you & miss you every single day, gram – happy birthday.  i love you!


when you do so much for so many,  you will never be forgotten.



happy birthday, sis.  we miss you.

another year wiser

look at these amazing peeps! there must be something special in the air on may 13th . . . happy birthday, my friends.  i wish you love, health, wealth and happiness forever!

and as frank sinatra said, “may you live to be 100 and may the last voice you hear be mine.”  i love you both!

For as you were when first your eye I eye’d,
Such seems your beauty still.”
