Make Small Choices

“Maybe I’m too picky?”, was my thought. I debunked that thought quickly after taking a glance at the past and seeing where not being picky landed me. Quality of life reflects choices my darling, no matter how small. At 10:00 am I made my second Chemex. I’m not sitting here highly caffeinated because I poured […]

The Queen B

My daughter is still in England, but will be on her way to Paris to celebrate New Years. I’m home making changes to the house. I read a Blog where one Mom has a stack of shower curtains. She changes them out seasonally, which I thought was a sweet idea. My daughter and I don’t […]

Healing in Hugs

I saved the last cookie for my daughter. She broke it in half, and brought half over to me. This is how we live our life. We are sitting at the table together. She is doing school while I write. There is a difference between living together, and being present. When I stepped away from […]

May We All

Driving down the road the other day, I heard a song come on the radio. I recognized the voice, but not the song. It was that kind of song that you cannot sit still while listening to. Florida Georgia Line, has a new song out. I haven’t listened to these guys in a while. They […]

Light the Fuses

I woke up this morning pondering how different my life is today, compared to a few years ago. I believe we all have a beautiful life, filled with God’s goodness. Now, whether or not we can see it, is the question. I couldn’t see mine. The marriage I was in for 25 years, had taken […]

Stay the Path

I slept through the night. That in itself is a miracle. I woke up thinking about a Blog I wrote lastnight before bed entitled, How to Fly. I wanted to pull it up, and delete it because I wasn’t happy with it. Since when is this Blog about me? I just write what’s on my […]

Anti Social Media

I have met three people this week that live in the same town I live in. This came to my attention just by talking, and asking questions to people I’ve run into throughout the week. This small town, with one 4-way stop, has some darling people living in it. Recently, I have realized how much […]

A New Path

I backslid this morning and went down to the corner store for a cup of coffee. I’ve barely had any coffee with this round of Chemo. The trip to the store wasn’t about coffee after all. Three days ago, I wrote a Blog and mentioned a song by Phillips, Craig, and Dean. Randy Phillips have […]

You’re Not Alone

My daughter went to visit a girlfriend Friday evening, and she’s coming home today. I was all alone, but I wasn’t lonely. There is nothing wrong with alone time, and sometimes it’s much needed. We are the only person we actually have in this world, so we need to like us. I read a comment […]

Scoop and Skim

It took me 50 years to learn the art of napping. All I can say lovelies is, be a faster learner than me. We all have 24 hours in a day. It’s how we use them that brings quality to life. This is a photo of my backyard 10 years ago. When we bought this […]
