Well, it was easy to name this post. I truly wanted to do a Thanksgiving Day post, but I couldn’t seem to get the words onto the page. So, here I am at the end of a long Black Friday that went pretty well (or so I thought) writing about my insanity. I hope that… Read More Black Friday
Every day Max and I take a walk. Sometimes we walk 30 minutes, sometimes an hour, but we always take a morning walk around the block. First, we check the bushes of my parent’s house for the cat that seems to always be lurking there. Max would love to play, but kitty doesn’t want any… Read More My life in a small town
Here I am. That’s about sums it up. I have SO much to say, but none of it seems to matter. I’m not unhappy. That doesn’t describe how I feel at all. Out of place, confused, upside down, surreal, weird, lost. None of those work either. Wrong. That’s the best way to describe how I… Read More Well, here I am.
I haven’t posted because it seems I can’t capture my thoughts. They are as difficult to catch as fireflies on a summer night. I meander through my day feeling normal (ish) until I don’t. I feel as if I’m standing on solid ground until suddenly, I’m not. It happens just that fast. I feel okay,… Read More Just keep breathing.
There have been so many topics that I’ve wanted to write about over the past 2 months, but I really haven’t. I’ve started and stopped. I’ve deleted drafts, and I’ve saved a few. I have at least 3 different notebooks and the notes section of my phone filled with random ideas. It just seems that… Read More Mourning Day 3
I want to share this article on the Houston flooding from Harvey because I have never experienced anything like this in MY life, and I’m a lucky one. I can’t even explain how I feel when I go by our old house to pick up the mail or check on my neighbors. The best emotions I… Read More Normal was flooded out too
I’ve always been an optimistic, glass half full, gonna be ok kind of girl. Even when things are at their worst, something inside me always thinks that some how, some way things will turn out for the best. Call it faith, call it hope, call it unrealistic; I call it ME. I’m not really into… Read More Reality is too real for me
Early this morning Max (our 4-year-old border collie/golden retriever rescue baby) and I went on a walk. As is often the case, a simple one hour walk relieved some stress and allowed me to sort out my often jumbled thoughts. As usual, the beauty of our Houston neighborhood soothes me. This may be hard… Read More Thank my lucky stars
You know how the saying goes about what to do when life gives you lemons…but what about when the lemons are being hurled at you at major league pitcher speed, and you have no bat or glove? When you are already so bruised and battered that you just don’t think you can take. One. More.… Read More Lemons
There was a time in my life not so long ago ‘though it seems like decades, that I didn’t think about cancer or hospitals or caregivers and patients daily. In fact, I think I probably went several days or possibly weeks in a row without thinking about these subjects. Why wasn’t I more aware?? I… Read More Birthday wishes
