To Stay Stopped

I had a surprise visit from a neighbor. I was vacuuming up dog hair and didn’t hear the knock on the door at first. I opened it to find my friend and her young son standing on the porch. Her little boy was holding a giant chocolate bar. He raised it up toward me as… Continue reading To Stay Stopped

A Lazy Day

I believe sometimes we just need to admit to this. It is a lazy day, and that’s okay. I’m sitting in my room overlooking the lake. It’s windy, but sunny, and I love watching the wind blow across the water. It wouldn’t be fun in a boat, but it’s soothing from where I sit. I’m… Continue reading A Lazy Day

Find a Home

I didn’t really wanna write today. This is Day 20 of challenging myself to write everyday for 30 days. It comes very easily for me now, but as you can see, I waited all day to do it! I woke up this morning physically tired. It’s not unusual for a Friday because I just had… Continue reading Find a Home

I’m sure they mean well, but in today’s world, that could be considered ‘stalking.’ There is a man… Continue reading People Mean Well

This is really testing my character. Like so many things in life, I know patience and waiting will resolve… Continue reading Please Pay Attention

It Wasn’t Pretty

This is Day 6 of my 30 day Blogging Challenge. I didn’t join a group, or sign up for this. It’s something I want to do to challenge myself to become better. It’s cold here in Texas, and lastnight it got down below 20 degrees. Guess who forgot to leave a faucet dripping? Yes darling,… Continue reading It Wasn’t Pretty

Let It Flow

I wrote a Blog lastnight thinking I would publish it this morning. It was everything I wanted to say at the moment. When I pulled it up today, I thought it needed some help. Sometimes I make life more difficult than it should be.   I love being in a New Year. I look at… Continue reading Let It Flow
