Coming Unglued

December 5, 2021 Coming Unglued.  I glued my mouth shut recently. Literally.  Before I get into that tale, you need to know three things about Joe.  He loved to pick on me about my age, he loved to get the “last laugh”, and because I always seemed to get myself in one fine mess or…

Noun: A Person, Place or Thing

Note: I’ve made a discovery since the last (so I thought) blog post. Joe Price may have left a limited number of sermons in that black leather notebook, but he left many more lessons written on my heart. Even now, as evidenced in this entry, Joe finds a way to bring me comfort and understanding…

The Time Has Come

September 5, 2021 One of my favorite lines in Joe’s obituary reads as follows: “Joe heard the call to ‘come home’, and as any gentleman does, he knew it was time to leave.” Joe Price was a gentleman through and through. It was one of his most endearing, and probably my most favorite quality about…

Just Your Average Joe

August 29, 2021 Joe thought of himself as pretty average. He was anything but. Joe could dress up in his finest and hob knob with the Rockefellers (and look mighty good doing it). He was equally as comfortable in overalls and work boots, stamping death dates onto tombstones, clearing debris from creek waters, or kicking…

Lord, It’s Hard to be Humble

August 22, 2021 There’s a hard-headed, stubborn human in this picture. Care to guess which one? Truthfully, it’s both of us. But Joe was worse. 😂 For example…several years ago, Joe had a little health scare. He endured several rounds of testing before it was determined that he simply needed to have his gallbladder removed.…

Risky Business

August 15, 2021 Mama, if you read this…I’m sorry. When we were teenagers, I snuck out of the house to meet Joe. More than once. He’d wait for me on Carmack Rd, a dirt road close to my house. I’d jump in his truck and we would ride at least half a mile with the…

You Missed Your Calling

August 8, 2021 Ronda to Joe: “Babe, you missed your calling.” {Spoken with true sincerity} Joe to Ronda: “Babe, you missed your calling.” {Spoken like a true smarty pants} Joe and I both had pretty clear callings in life. I was called to be a teacher. I love everything about school–the smell of books and…

Do It Now

August 1, 2021 Do I love the two old fellas in this picture with all my heart? Yes. Do they both have a stubborn streak as wide as Chief’s rear end? Also yes. 😂 The quickest way to get Joe to NOT do something was to tell him to do it. I can’t tell you…

Out of the Mouths of Babes

July 25, 2021 A few weeks ago, we gathered for supper to celebrate Sarah’s birthday. Jackie Beth said the blessing. She no longer repeats a memorized prayer, but delivers her own personal words of thanks. It is so precious! Anyway, as she drew her very sweet little prayer to a close, she said, “…and in…

Hurry Up and Wait

July 18, 2021 Joe was typically patient with me. And I was typically…well…let’s just say the man stored up treasures in Heaven during our marriage. 😜 HOWEVER…. There was one circumstance in which he expected something impossible of me and just could not be patient about it. It happened every time he put the dang…
