A Little Personal History to Start!

Hi, my name is Charlene delaney.  I’m  a Tennessee girl that traveled the country and world my first 20 years with my father who was serving his country.  My life took me to a lot of our country and  some of the world.  Most of my teen years in Europe, but have to give a shout out to South Korea.  Forty-six years ago a guy I was dating brought me to dinner at the Surf in Magnolia and then took me for a ride around the back shore of Gloucester, what he called the most beautiful, peaceful place he knew, one he had come to for years, a truly happy place.  I think I fell in love with him and Gloucester that night.  He was a Marblehead guy that became my husband, but throughout the years Gloucester was always a happy place for us.  Seventeen years ago we moved here full time and without a doubt I love this beautiful city more than any other place I’ve lived.  It has changed over the years but has always gotten better.  The people and places of this city fill my heart with love!

 Hope my post will give you a new appreciation for the City where I  live, work and play.

    As April is the “Month of the Military Child” we thought we’d share this lovely poem to honor all of the military-connected kids out there . . . this one is for you!

    The Dandelion – The Flower of the Military Child

    “The official flower of the military child is the dandelion. Why? The plant puts down roots almost anywhere, and it’s almost impossible to destroy. It’s an unpretentious plant, yet good looking. It’s a survivor in a broad range of climates. Military children bloom everywhere the winds carry them. They are hardy and upright. Their roots are strong, cultivated deeply in the culture of the military, planted swiftly and surely. They’re ready to fly in the breezes that take them to new adventures, new lands, and new friends.

    Experts say that military children are well-rounded, culturally aware, tolerant, and extremely resilient. Military children have learned from an early age that home is where their hearts are, that a good friend can be found in every corner of the world, and that education doesn’t only come from school. They live history. They learn that to survive means to adapt, that the door that closes one chapter of their life opens up to a new and exciting adventure full of new friends and new experiences.”
