That’s My God

It’s the little things in life that never cease to amuse me. Standing at my kitchen window after an hour’s worth of steady rain, looking at the plants I just watered yesterday. A smile came to my lips as I chuckled at the conversation I was having with God in my heart. The weather forecast… Continue reading That’s My God

A Beautiful Morning

I’ve been thinking about this, and had a vision I’d like to share. It took some thought and planning ahead, but it’s well worth every effort. The first thing I saw to do was to scrub the beach rug clean. It’s odd, but in January hundreds of birds fly overhead all day long dropping red… Continue reading A Beautiful Morning

The Sunny Spot

When I first started this Blog, I could sit and write for hours and post daily. That has mellowed over time. I enjoy my pieces of life that don’t require Internet. The dogs know my favorite time to write is around 9:00 am, and they become very still and quiet. It’s like they are giving… Continue reading The Sunny Spot

I completed a ’30 Days to Better Sleep’ mediation, and it worked really well. I didn’t hear the end of several of the meditations, because I fell asleep. 😂 I enjoyed the voice and positive attitude of the man who narrated the meditation, so I looked him up. He was easy to find on social… Continue reading Download the App

The Draft Folder

I’m being drawn toward the draft folder, so I’ve dedicated the month of December to cleaning out drafts. If you see a random post that doesn’t quite go with the flow, you’ll know Barb finished a draft. 🙂 A full draft folder used to feel overwhelming. There are no stacks of paper piled up on… Continue reading The Draft Folder

Embrace the Unexpected

I cannot remember the last time I went Black Friday shopping, but I went this year. There was one store having a sale, and I wondered what it would be like to go shopping on Black Friday during a pandemic. It was nothing like I thought it would be. I made a deal with God… Continue reading Embrace the Unexpected

Be the Reason

A couple of weeks ago, I saw a pillow and wanted it, but didn’t buy it. I was shopping with a friend, and told myself I didn’t need one more pillow. It wasn’t a need, but a want from years ago, regarding a similar pillow. When I first saw the pillow it was sitting on… Continue reading Be the Reason

When Grey Turns to Blue

Refining what we have. Paying attention to what’s in front of us and making small adjustments toward better. I painted a wall, and it wasn’t even a large wall, but it is the first wall you see when you walk in the front door. The paint job has always bothered me. Before we moved in,… Continue reading When Grey Turns to Blue

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

The Wrong Screen

The main reason I joined the Fearless community was to confirm what’s meaningful and rediscover my meaningful work. I knew writing was meaningful, but it doesn’t feel like work, hence the confusion. I struggled for a while finding time to blog. It’s easy to get wrapped up in all the changes happening within my job,… Continue reading The Wrong Screen
