What, No Pajama Day?

December 3, 2023

I was kind of hoping we would have a pajama day today…besides going to church, of course, and serving our Lord. 😉

We were finishing up both our jalapeño poppers and our game of Phase Ten when Ken declared, “I’m going out to fill up sandbags.” (As you know, we tend to flood hereabouts this time of year.)

I answered, “Uh…do you…well, um…I’m assuming you need some help.” 😂

About Marie de Haan

Marie is a gifted pianist, playing since the age of nine. As a teenager, she composed mainly instrumental piano music. She released her powerful debut single, “I Am Broken,” on October 22, 2020, a song whose creation drew heavily upon the trauma she endured as a victim of childhood sexual abuse. Marie held a benefit concert on September 10, 2021, in Skagit County. A portion of the proceeds went to CrossRoads Youth Ranch; this local organization—through equine therapy—empowers “at-risk and sexually exploited youth to heal, grow, and thrive.” She has continued to write music: Christian, folk, and country. Marie loves hiking, gardening, and photography. The Pacific Northwest—where she lives with her husband—is the backdrop for her favorite activities.
