HOLLENBECK: Reaching out to touch someone in pain is priceless gift of love

May 29, 2012

Words are my life. This has been so for as long as I have memory. But there are times when words are inadequate to express what one feels.
I'm living in such a time.
As most people know, on May 4 I suffered the greatest loss I have known. This was the final day of life for my husband of 36, nearly 37, years.
Before this happened, I thought I understood grief. I've buried both my parents and other loved ones and said the final goodbyes to friends who were as close as family. But losing a spouse? It's an experience unlike any other.
Only those who have been there know what I mean.

HOLLENBECK: And the baby's name shall be Mary, John, Susan, Henry, Ralph, Helen...

The Social Security Administration recently announced that the most popular baby names for 2011 were Sophia and Jacob.
This is the 13th year in a row that Jacob topped the list for boys and the first year for Sophia, who knocked Isabella to No. 2 after a two-year stint at the top of the female list.
Only one new name made the top 10 on either list this year. Mason rocketed to No. 2 from outside the top 10 to replace Anthony on the boys’ side.
It was also reported that Elvis has returned to the top 1,000, coming in at No. 904 on the rankings. That's good. Elvis needs to be there.

HOLLENBECK: A letter here, a letter there, and therein the trouble you'll find

May 9, 2012

For many years my minister spouse has collected what is known among the church folk as bulletin bloopers.
These are basically mistakes — some caused by typos, some resulting from misplaced words, some stringing the wrong words together that change the meaning, often drastically and embarrassingly so — but basically they're little pieces of funny stuff that weren't intended to be so.
