I could blame not writing on the remodel of my house, or the busyness that seems always to be the month of May, or one of my kids, or the weather, but honestly, I’ve just not felt like it. I should clarify and say that I’ve had lots of thoughts that I would have liked… Read More New life….
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’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
Finding joy in the little things becomes easier the more you focus on one day at a time! We all need to remember that we have NO idea what others are going through unless we’ve walked in their shoes, and even then, everyone’s experience is unique. Hope is as necessary as air and water. A… Read More Random Thoughts from My Current Life
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
Anyone remember when most things were REAL? Before everything was made of plastic, laminate, particle board, or synthetic fibers? Before every ingredient in our food, body care, and cleaners ended in -phate, -kyl, or a long abbreviation or number? I know some of you will probably stop reading right now and blow my post off… Read More Is Everything Fake & Toxic?
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
Today hasn’t started off very well. Last night was of those hospital nights where sleep just wasn’t destined to happen. It wasn’t for lack of preparation. We knew we would be up early as B was supposed to be taken down for dialysis at 6am, so I got the diffuser going at 9 with sacred… Read More Ramblings & Gratitude
