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

In The Quiet

The stillness of the morning. The cat is curled up on an ottoman nearby and the dogs are lounging in the hallway. The quiet is my sweet spot. I was at the pizza place lastnight helping out during rush hour. Music was blaring through the speakers in the ceiling, and the guys in the kitchen… Continue reading In The Quiet

Let It Bloom

It’s been a life-long love affair with the Hydrangea, but the seasons are changing and it’s going away until Spring. This morning I noticed myself having a bit of trouble letting it go. My daughter and I were out shopping this week. When I disappeared from view, she knew where to find me. We were… Continue reading Let It Bloom

Them Three Days

This is the first time, in three days, I’ve turned on my laptop. I pulled back my bedroom drapes this morning, just to make sure there was still a world. I’ve been asleep for 3 days. Before Chemo, this would never have happened. Oh sure, I could take a nap every now and then, but… Continue reading Them Three Days

Stay the Path

Today is my last day on “the job.” I received a text lastnight saying they had hired someone to take my place. It’s a good thing I don’t get offended anymore. I knew it was only temporary. Stepping in when it was needed, and helping to hold together what was in place. My life is… Continue reading Stay the Path

This Ain’t Easy

If you had $20 to your name, how would you spend it? Years ago, I would spend that money on diapers. Today, I would spend $13 on my favorite candle, and the rest would be a toss up between a Pumpkin Spice Latte, or actual food. Does that sound silly? I try to be a… Continue reading This Ain’t Easy

Stealing My Joy

I had a revelation just now in the kitchen. Maybe my kitchen is the place to be because I seem to find revelation there daily. Yesterday, God showed me what my book is going to look like, just standing at the kitchen sink. Now it is clear. I have had a page pulled up since… Continue reading Stealing My Joy

Enjoy The Plan

I love how life flows. Sitting here at my desk, looking out the window, and seeing a beautiful day in store. Texas has had a lot of rain, so the sunshine feels good. The house was perfectly still a moment ago, until Gus, our Blue Heeler,  decided to jump up and start barking at something… Continue reading Enjoy The Plan

Bruised, not Broken

Almost a year ago I received my Letting Go Coaching Certification. This process can help anyone who desires quality of life. We start by adopting the perspective of our nervous system. You see, the body knows how to be healthy. If you spent time each day resting, remaining calm and you led a peaceful life,… Continue reading Bruised, not Broken

Find Your Voice

I’m sitting here before I retire for the evening and just wanted to write. People ask me what I do and I tell them about my jobs and then add, “I’m a writer.” They find my job status interesting enough, but they always look up at me with a smile when I add the ‘writer’… Continue reading Find Your Voice
