Welcome to my new world! For weeks (or maybe months, I forget) we’ve been working on this web site to make it a lot more “homey” _ less like a “web site” and more like a kitchen table, a place where we can sit down together over coffee, you and I, and talk about whatever comes to mind. (Except, well, you’ll have to bring your own coffee. Sorry. Haven’t figured out how to do that yet, but we’re working on it.) Come in, kick your shoes off, make yourself at home. It’s as new to me as it is to you, so we’ll be finding our way around it together, working out the kinks as we go along. I’ll be “posting” on a regular basis (if I forget, I’ll count on you to remind me) and I’ll welcome your comments on every post. Let me know what you think. Drop in anytime. I’ll leave a light on for you.


  1. The one column I read in the Sunday paper if I don’t get time to read the rest. You speak to the ordinary folks as no other columnist. The down home heart felt emotions that are so real to us all, comes out in your writing. After you indulge in the grandbabies remember the great grandbabies are somehow just as wonderful. I know, I have 5 of each. Wishing you the same kind of pleasures you bring your readers. You are a unique lady and always so fun to read. May God Bless you and yours.

  2. Sharon,

    Is there a place where we can place a “GOLD STAR” for overflowing heart and soul? Your columns almost always touch both my heart and soul.

    Please keep beautifying our world.

    Thank you, Chet

      Chet, what a lovely thing to say, thank you so much! I’d give you a “gold star”, too, if I could 🙂 Best to you and your family!

    Just finished reading our Sunday newspaper, and my “every Sunday must read” i.e. your column, and had to check out your website! Looking forward to being able to watch for updates, photos, comments, etc…. You remind me of my friend Judy – warm, welcoming, makes everyone feel like they’ve known her forever. That’s how you and your columns are, and why I look forward to reading them every Sunday.

  4. I am so excited that you have this web site. I have been reading your columns for years and feel like I know you ! You have a true gift to reach people through your words. I look forward to having my coffee with you each Sunday, but now I can check out this site and also see you. God bless you for how you make your readers feel, like you are our friend and really care about us.
    Keep up the good work. You and your family are in my prayers.

      Thank you, Ruth, I so appreciate your prayers and encouragement. Here’s wishing all God’s best for you and your family!

    I have read your column ever since the passing of Erma Bombeck. You, like Erma, bring warm smiles and tears all in one column. That talent speaks to life itself. It is full of smiles and tears, all at the same time. Thank you for sharing what is common to us all.

    • Sharon Randall says

      Hey, Ruth, it’s an honor just to be in the same sentence with Erma Bombeck! Thank you so much for putting a smile on my face! 🙂

    When I read in your column today( in the Winston-Salem Journal) about your new website, I knew I’d want to drop by and say hey. My Saturdays are not complete without reading about your latest heart-touching moments. You have that rare God-given gift to make us feel, through your words, that we really are sharing that cup of coffee together. And until I am blessed with grandchildren, I’ll experience the joy and fierceness of being a Nana with my mug in hand. God Bless!

  7. Becky and Guy Odum says

    Hi Friend….Thanks for sharing your new website with us, it is very warm and welcoming. I will look forward to all the new things to come from you. As I browse, I am drinking my cup of coffee as if you and I are sitting across the table from each other. Love and Blessings! Becky

  8. I just read today that you are online. I’m so excited! I’ve read your column over the years although it only appears in my small town paper a few times a month. I have related to your many stories of losing your husband, raising your babies, and moving on in life. Our son was 9 when my husband died April, 2007 after battling cancer and related illnesses. Thank you for sharing the peaks and valleys of life.

    • Sharon Randall says

      Thank you, Donna, for your kind note. I am so sorry you lost your husband. I hope you and your son are doing well. Here’s wishing both of you God’s grace and peace!
