One More Time

The most gratifying part of Blogging is the readers. You never know who you’re gong to reach, or who your words will touch. The phrase, “I’m just gonna write in hopes that someone needs to read it”, has served me well. The good night’s sleep series was fun to write, but my reward was you […]

Get to Growing

This meme resonated with me and has been sitting on my desktop all year. For months, it feels like there’s been more rain than sunshine in Texas.

Room for Improvement

I just can’t help myself. Sitting on the front porch in the early morning, with coffee, I look around for what can improve. This morning I saw a plant that wasn’t happy. It looked very sad sitting in the pot it was planted in. I thought about throwing it away, but instead plopped it in […]
