Love and Light

Today is her birthday and she turned 21. She’s not here though. She’s in England. It’s an odd feeling for both of us. We were texting the other night about her turning 21, and she said, “I wish I were five.” Well, my darling. I remember five, and wondered if I’d do anything different? Then […]

Just Say Yes

I didn’t know she is an artist. It’s not surprising that she is, but she lives right behind me and I was clueless. She sent me a message via Instagram, and like any good neighbor, I stalked her page. Walking over for a visit, we sat down and talked about her art. She laid out […]

Keep Washing Mugs

It feels like I’ve been washing coffee mugs all week. Walking through the house, making my way to the kitchen and picking them up on the way there. I’m not complaining my darling. It’s actually a blessing. Used coffee mugs equal out to really good coffee consumed, and magical moments. When the tray that holds […]

Worth the Wait

The candle display looked sparse. My friend who owns the local Shoppe had placed an order for new ones, but they hadn’t come in yet. The display looked like it was in waiting. I went back to the Shoppe a few days later, but still no candles. There was a holdup in the shipment, but […]

Worth the Drive

My daughter said, “That was the most magical shower ever! Between the soap, the razor holder and the Waterpik…it was amazing!” Yes, I bought a Waterpik at my hygienists nudging. I’ve always put off buying one because they spray water everywhere, but she showed me a cordless one for the shower. In yesterday’s post, I […]

Best Thing Ever

Earlier today, my daughter and I were talking about our little book of ‘Never Agains‘. Then she flipped the conversation around and began talking about the best thing ever. Like, the ginormous bag of cotton balls we purchased, just because it’s the biggest bag we’ve ever seen. (pillow size) We can always use cotton balls. […]

My Front Yard

This is one of my favorite memes. Last year, I wrote about The Bird Feeder. I loved it, but spent a lot of time agonizing over the squirrels. They wouldn’t stay off the feeder and wound up destroying one of them. Fast forward to today, I feed the squirrels. I pour the feed right on […]

You Are Loved

Two days ago, I posted this meme on Letitgocoach Facebook page. I thought it’s sweet, but didn’t realize the impact it would have. People are drinking it up like water. I was thinking, to find our true selves, it really is in the unbecoming. To peel off the layers of what has adhered to us. […]

It Was Time

“Do you want a new Christmas stocking?”, she asked. I hadn’t thought about it till that moment. I haven’t had a new Christmas stocking since the divorce. The one I brought with me is laying in a box of unused Christmas items. These items that at one time, we enjoyed having, but they no longer […]

Just Be Sweet

There’s memes floating around this time of year about, ‘finishing the year strong.’ It’s tiresome being strong all the time and I want to finish the year more gently. I’m taking the rest of the year off from being strong. I’ve been told, “You come across a little strong.” Well, that’s what I’ve become, but […]
