Filled with peace

When I first started this Blog, I wanted to write like Melody Beattie. I’ve read her books more than once and she brings me peace. It was more than her words, maybe it was her vibe while writing, like she was filled with peace and laying it on the page to be shared. It took… Continue reading Filled with peace

Bowl of Scraps

There’s a lady who sells these handmade bowls at a farmer’s market I attend on the weekends. They are made from strips of fabric she refers to as scraps. Her display has so many colors and designs it’s difficult to choose, but if that’s my toughest decision of the day, life is good. She wraps… Continue reading Bowl of Scraps

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… Continue reading Love and Light

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… Continue reading Just Say Yes

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… Continue reading Keep Washing Mugs

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… Continue reading Worth the Wait

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… Continue reading Worth the Drive

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.… Continue reading Best Thing Ever

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… Continue reading My Front Yard

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.… Continue reading You Are Loved
