Cooler Weather, Courage, and Resilience

August 24, 2016 – Cooler Weather Here it is, just near the end of August and already leaves are falling from the trees. This has been a really weird summer. I don’t remember last summer being as odd as this one. We had about one week of Spring and then went right into the 90’s […]

Neighbors, Dolly, and No Pain

August 21, 2016 – Neighbors I’ve lived in many different neighborhoods in my life. In some areas, you didn’t dare walk out the door after the sun went down. In other areas, some neighbors were pretty nosy, always showing up at the door unannounced, looking around and asking multiple questions. I’ve lived in houses, high […]

Positive Conversations, Handling Pain, and Peace in My Soul

August 18, 2016 – Positive Conversations We have conversations with many different people. Sometimes we might speak with several individuals during our day.

Acceptance, Jesus, and Observations

August 5, 2016 – Acceptance We, as humans are inclined to find a solution by ourselves to every problem that presents itself. Whether it is in the work place, in the home, at our children’s school or even something in our adult children’s life. We are free with our advice without stopping to think about […]

Naps, My Rocking Chair, Fear and Smells

August 1, 2016 – Naps Did I mention this before? I might have. It seems that when I was younger, I was constantly on the go. I didn’t seem to need much sleep, or much food either. I was up at the crack of dawn, usually around 5 am and sometimes wouldn’t get to bed […]
