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 been a battle with the squirrels. They could easily pop open […]

Trust the Wait

I didn’t do my Morning Pages this morning. I spent time with my daughter before she left for her college classes. Wednesday’s are like that. I’m still haunted by yesterday’s Morning Pages. It was basically three pages of questions. Then later in the day I saw these words, “Choose uncertainty over unhappiness.” That is what […]

The Bounce Box

My daughter and I have this thing going on with the box of Bounce dryer sheets. Every time I reach in the cabinet to retrieve the box, the lid of the box is mashed in. It makes me smile when I see it. It shows me my daughter has her own way of doing things. […]

Lesson One of Letting Go

I didn’t have plans of becoming a coach. In my mind, there are plenty of coaches already, but when I began Blogging, Letitgocoach was the domain name available, and it fit. At the time, I was going through a series of Letting Go lessons, and was approached about becoming certified. Once the lessons were complete, […]

The Broken Pieces

Last year, I let it all go, to see what stayed. I believe a lot of people are trying to decide what they want to do with their life. I asked a friend, “What were you doing, and at what point in your life were you doing it, that made your heart happy?” We can […]

Let Life Be

“Sometimes the picture isn’t finished yet.” “Ideas, possibilities, hopes, dreams float around, circling us like asteroids around a planet. We may think events in our lives are happening aimlessly, without purpose. All we see are disconnected, floating blobs.” “We reach for them, try to grab them in our hands so we can connect them, force […]

To Be Missed

My daughter’s boyfriend is from Missouri. They spent 7 days together over Christmas break. She drove him to the airport yesterday, and returned home with a tear stained face. They have maintained this long distance relationship for 15 months. He is 19, and she is 17, but they are mature for their ages. I’m encouraging […]

That Chemo Brain

Having thoughts, and getting them from my mind, to the page, is similar to herding cats. Being a writer, that’s frustrating. I’m learning to relax. It is safer for those I love. What used to flow from my heart through my hands, is now literally pecking one sentence, or thought, at a time. They call […]

Live and Learn

I’m learning so much, just by living this life God has given me. Seeing what each day brings, and instead of ignoring it, walking through it. It’s not easy, but well worth it. I found myself frustrated earlier in the week. Things were not going my way, and you would think, I’d be over that […]

Your Way Home

I have been pondering lately the feeling of home. Maybe you travel a lot, or work long days, and you pull into the driveway. Walking up to the door, and seeing it standing there waiting. Hearing the key slide into the lock, and then the click. The door swings open, but there’s that initial step […]
