Watching the Sunrise

My zen is waking up early, before the day begins. When it’s still dark outside, but to do that, I go to sleep early. That was the scenario lastnight. By 9:00 pm, my daughter and I were getting sleepy. She chuckled and asked, “Is it too early to go to bed?” By 9:30, we were… Continue reading Watching the Sunrise

Enjoy the Day

You can hear the natural flow of the day when there is no additional noise. The air conditioning is blowing steadily through the air vent above my head. Sitting in the middle of my bed while typing, the cool air is landing on the back of my neck, arms, and shoulders. There is a ceiling… Continue reading Enjoy the Day

Feel the Music

I haven’t driven my truck all week. That is why I haven’t posted a song, because I usually hear the right song while driving. Today? I had to run away from home. I didn’t go far, and wasn’t gone long, but that little drive refreshed me. The last time I drove my truck was four… Continue reading Feel the Music

Us and We

What happened today warmed my heart. It was the sweetest miracle to watch unfold. My daughter had two people interested in one of her kittens she had posted for sale. She was mainly a barn kitty, but it would be no problem finding her a good home. Being a Siamese mix, she was pretty, fluffy… Continue reading Us and We

Just Be Held

Sitting at my desk early this morning, I heard the chickens by my window. That would mean they were in the front yard, instead of the side. They had jumped the fence, looking for me because they had a need. I walked them back through the gate, gave them food and made a note to… Continue reading Just Be Held

No Matter What

There is something about the weekend, that gives me a deeper sense of pleasure. It’s when I take extra time, walking through my world and noticing every little thing. What needs some extra attention and what grabs mine. Then that ADD moment when one of my fave songs comes on,  Somebody Like You, by Keith… Continue reading No Matter What

They Just Did

I have a job assisting a friend in California three and a half days a week. It is done virtually, which gives me the flexibility in schedule and the joy of working from home. I get to write, encourage people and work. My first job, after I left the workforce, was to take care of… Continue reading They Just Did

Look For Signs

When I first moved to this little farm house on 40 acres, I had no clue what God had in store. I was hoping this was His will, but concerned that maybe this was my move and not His. There was nothing out here but grass, trees and a pond with a pier beside the… Continue reading Look For Signs

Meet Every Need

As I pressed down the handle of the Keurig this morning, for my sunshine in a cup, I glanced over at the K-cup supply. I have them in a red wire basket that I used to gather eggs in when I raised chickens. Raising chickens was a sweet time in my life, so I enjoy… Continue reading Meet Every Need
