The Fire Pit

To step outside and smell a fireplace going or a wood pile being burned. It’s a cozy smell this time of year. In the post, Be at Home it was mentioned our house doesn’t have a fireplace, so I bought an electric one. That’s a wonderful option for inside, but it doesn’t have that real… Continue reading The Fire Pit

Savor the Moments

The best email of the week. “Barbara…Your Holiday candle is here!” My daughter laughed as I put this reminder in my calendar. “Only my Mother schedules a candle pickup”, she quipped. Life is not all business. You have to schedule in goodness too. The lady who sent the email owns a local shoppe and we’ve… Continue reading Savor the Moments

It’s Only Pizza!

Everyday at the pizza place is different. It depends on who and how many walk in. When I leave to go home, God shows me a little snippet of why I’m there. Last night was no exception. I made mistakes. I work the front of the restaurant alone. Lastnight, several families came in at once.… Continue reading It’s Only Pizza!

Wait… — Storyshucker

I’m watching from my window today. For a few minutes more, at least. Saturday errands call, but right now the view into the garden has my willpower paralyzed. Soothed by the peaceful nothingness happening out there, I stare blissfully through the glass a little longer. Oh well. I need to start those errands. Yawn, stretch, […]… Continue reading Wait… — Storyshucker

“Relax. You’re on a journey of discovery. Let life reveal itself to you.” Melody Beattie My daughter was packing to go to her Dad’s and asked, “What are you doing this weekend?” I replied, “I’m going to not think so much.” I’ve just been enjoying the journey. I once told my daughter, “I don’t have… Continue reading Enjoy the Journey

Be the Mama

I try not to rush anymore, but recently I found myself getting sucked into life’s frenzy. This morning it was time to stop. I’ve been watching my daughter. At 19 years old she has wisdom and discernment, and makes sound decisions. I’ve stepped back to let her practice running her own life. Watching how she… Continue reading Be the Mama

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 a similar answer. Their kids were grown, had left the nest,… Continue reading Find Your Dosha

A Lazy Day

I believe sometimes we just need to admit to this. It is a lazy day, and that’s okay. I’m sitting in my room overlooking the lake. It’s windy, but sunny, and I love watching the wind blow across the water. It wouldn’t be fun in a boat, but it’s soothing from where I sit. I’m… Continue reading A Lazy Day

Find a Home

I didn’t really wanna write today. This is Day 20 of challenging myself to write everyday for 30 days. It comes very easily for me now, but as you can see, I waited all day to do it! I woke up this morning physically tired. It’s not unusual for a Friday because I just had… Continue reading Find a Home
