It’s the Little Things

I have to say that today is one of the best days I’ve had in weeks. I went grocery shopping this morning and one of my favorite cashiers was back to work after testing positive for COVID-19.  MILD case but still I saw her and felt good and had hope. Coming back from walking to […]

Happy New Year!

It has to be a better year than 2019! I’ve had so many challenges in 2019 I stopped counting. All I can do is keep trying to move forward. As I write that sentence I hear Yoda in my head saying, “do or do not, there is no try.” I’m somewhat in denial about my […]

Trusting is challenging for me. Once you’ve been really burned it becomes difficult to trust. Trusting God is much easier but still a challenge. I would love to be able to trust easily. Instead I question and shy away from folks until I really know them. Even then I hold back. I really love it […]

Eternal Now

There is only today Yesterday has dissolved into mist Tomorrow is not guaranteed We attempt to control time with clocks and calendars but it will not be contained It is only now. Ever. Memories remain and dance in your thoughts we cling to them like prized possessions Our hearts are full with what is no […]

Leisure Seeker

I stumbled on this movie gem and had to share. This is both comedic and tragic but well worth a watch. Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland play a married couple in their golden years. They take off in their ancient motorhome for a road adventure, much to the chagrin of their adult children. The movie […]

When You’re Out of Ideas

You can’t find the next steps Blurred are the lines in the road No one said to watch for this Too long has it been. In the blink of an eye yet forever And you turn around and that sign that says, “Chosen”, is broken in two Trust the voice, trust your faith, and don’t […]
