Moments of Gratitude

There’s something about November that brings gratitude to the forefront. I saw a post written my Michelle GD and signed up for her Gratitude notes. This morning, I found myself looking forward to her email of ‘Day Two’. Michelle and I have similar philosophies. It’s the little things in life that I’m grateful for the… Continue reading Moments of Gratitude

In The Quiet

The stillness of the morning. The cat is curled up on an ottoman nearby and the dogs are lounging in the hallway. The quiet is my sweet spot. I was at the pizza place lastnight helping out during rush hour. Music was blaring through the speakers in the ceiling, and the guys in the kitchen… Continue reading In The Quiet

In An Instant

As I mentioned in a previous post, my daughter met up with a friend she doesn’t get to see very often. They met on the college campus last year, and the friend moved away to attend another campus. The best thing to come out of college, in my opinion, has been meeting this friend. They… Continue reading In An Instant

To Step Away

I had to step away from my work. We moved to a new online customer service platform last week, the second one since June, and there’s a lot to learn. I’ve also learned how and when to step away. I read Stephen King’s Memoir, ‘On Writing.” He talks about how he always had a nook… Continue reading To Step Away

Let It Bloom

It’s been a life-long love affair with the Hydrangea, but the seasons are changing and it’s going away until Spring. This morning I noticed myself having a bit of trouble letting it go. My daughter and I were out shopping this week. When I disappeared from view, she knew where to find me. We were… Continue reading Let It Bloom

Now and Next

I’m taking steps this year, toward where I want to be this time next year. It takes some planning, but I keep an open mind. One of my most used prayers is, “God, if this is not your will, stop me now!” I jotted down this note from 7/26 in the Jesus Calling book. “RELAX… Continue reading Now and Next

Leaving the Throne

It was one year ago I saw her post with a picture of the ragged bible and went looking for my Bible. It was sitting on a shelf of books collecting dust, but it had a cover on it which I wrote about here. This year, I took the protective cover off in hopes that… Continue reading Leaving the Throne

A Simple Habit

There’s a purple, leather notebook laying open all day. A silver and purple pen rests on top of the pages ready to write. The dark purple ribbon lays across the page marked with today’s date. This is where I write my tiny things attributing to the self-trust cultivator, or as you fondly call it, The… Continue reading A Simple Habit

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 Showing Up

The Done List is so much more than getting things done. It’s saying yes to your heart more. It’s when you hear that still small voice give a reminder of what’s good for you. I have access to a morning meditation via zoom, every morning at 9:00 am. I’ve attended before, and it was nice,… Continue reading Keep Showing Up
