Take Some Time

The watch went back into it’s original box. The ginormous clock was removed from the bedroom wall and moved to the breezeway. I can still see it from the bedroom, so it will continue to be enjoyed, but it’s out of my room, and… Continue Reading “Take Some Time”

Worth the Fight

A form of letting go is to ‘let it be.’ To breathe in the early morning was to sit on the front porch with coffee and watch the birds feed from the bird feeder. Now my yard is still and quiet. The bird feeder… Continue Reading “Worth the Fight”

God Has Better in Store

I love the way life is our teacher. We can learn so much by paying attention. I noticed the birds hadn’t used the bird feeder in a while. The feeder was introduced in the post It Took Years. It’s a beautiful feeder, but it’s… Continue Reading “God Has Better in Store”

Collect Beautiful Moments

This morning I changed my sheets. As I unfolded them to put them on the bed, they smelled like perfume. It took me back to the moment I first purchased perfume wash. I haven’t used those sheets since last summer, so I was delightfully… Continue Reading “Collect Beautiful Moments”

Find Your Dosha

I didn’t complete all four of the stained glass classes. During the first class, I was with a group of ladies more mature in years than me. The teacher asked us to take turns introducing ourselves, and say why we’re here. Each lady gave… Continue Reading “Find Your Dosha”

Before it Breaks

I enjoy fixing things, but have my limits. I’ll begin with the shower from our previous home as an example. The spout didn’t function to the best of its ability. This happened over time. When you turned the water on, it came out of… Continue Reading “Before it Breaks”

Listening for quiet

Making a coffee pour over has a calming effect over me. Once I go through all the steps of setting it up, I’m forced to slow down, and enjoy the process. Watching as the boiling hot water, slowly escapes from the spout of the… Continue Reading “Listening for quiet”
