What a Legend

Legends rising up amid the chaos.

A Blogger friend of mine was recently laid off from work. She’s in the cleaning industry, so I believe it’s wise for now. She announced being home-bound and what did she do? Made freakin’ bunnies!

I read her Blog this morning and it made me smile. I even giggled at the sight of the pom pom bunnies. She is legendary.

Hello Bunnies

This Blogger continually strives for well-being. She hasn’t had an easy life, but I haven’t seen an obstacle yet she hasn’t conquered. We may be on lock-down, but we can make some bunnies.

Reading her Blog out-loud, my daughter responded with, “What a Legend.”

That previous post was a pity party in disguise, but here’s what I love about it. My core group of followers ‘liked’ it. They just let Barb be Barb, but by clicking the ‘like’ button, and showed me they were there.

As writers we have a vast opportunity.

To encourage people more than ever!

You never know who is going to read your Blog. I emailed the man I work with, and my Blog address is in my signature. He clicked the link and read my Blog! He tried to compliment me, but was rendered speechless. I’m not sure that’s good, but I’m taking it as high praise from him. 🙂

“Wow, Barb!” Is that a compliment?

Today, I’m going to my local florist to buy flowers. They posted pictures last night of having fresh flowers by the buckets!

Follow that heart darling.

Hold firm to the promise of ‘this too shall pass.’ It always does, but be grateful for people who continue on with their business amid uncertainty. Local companies will deliver or offer curbside service. I will pick up flowers curbside any day of the week!

Much love to you. By the buckets! ❤

Become Connected

I spent time with my daughter this morning. She gets up early, and comes in late, to spend as much of the day as possible with her guy. I have barely seen her, but it’s all good. We live together.

I opened a Snapchat account, and we send snaps to one another throughout the day. The thing I love about Snapchat is, it can capture your facial expression, and even modify it. We send some hilarious pics to one another, and it’s one way to maintain our connection even when she’s not here. Come find me on Snapchat as Letitgocoach, and let’s connect!

Connection is the sweet spot of life. I was reading my devotional a little while ago, and thought of my new friend that I met here on WordPress. She Blogs here, and reads the same devotional, so we have that connection. As I was reading mine, I wondered if she was reading hers. The name of her Blog is what drew me in, and now we are friends. Her most recent Blog is entitled, “It’s Okay“. I wrote one very similar during my 30 Days of Writing.

Technology can be good, if we use it for good. As I was writing this, a notification from Facebook popped up on the screen. It was letting me know that a couple of my friends had birthdays today. I stopped typing, and went in search of something to post of their wall.

It doesn’t take the place of human to human contact, but it helps. I had brunch with my daughter’s boyfriend’s Mother yesterday. We had a wonderful time, sitting in a beautiful restaurant, just getting to know one another. We already have a connection, our kiddos, so it was our time to connect, and we did. Through technology we can remain connected.

It’s how we choose to view it that matters. I was not excited about making this trip to Missouri, but now I can say, it has been a good experience for me. I’ve enjoyed it.

It’s easy for me to get caught up in my virtual world. When my daughter asked me to take this trip with her, it felt like I was being ripped out of my comfort zone on so many levels.

It was time for me to step out of my world, and really become connected.
