🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my love of the English language and how when I was a kid I would read a Thesaurus just for fun. Somehow in our attempt to “simplify” everything we have created an entire language with emojis and I doubt anyone under the age of 20 knows what a […]

Fourth of July 1945

My Dad loved the Fourth of July. The only person who might have loved it more would have been my Grandfather. He was wild about the chance to celebrate (he was wild Irish) and even more to light explosives. When Dad was a kid the Fourth meant that they were going to “the Farm” to […]

Give ‘Em a Break

Harvest might just be here!  Finally!  A hot summer breeze and muddy fields, but we are going to attempt to get the wheat out of the field.  I am anxious for my kids.  I worry about the trucks on the road and the slow moving vehicles.  I worry about them overheating and not drinking enough […]

Destination….Faith–don’t read if you don’t have Any!!

Last evening I had a Stephen’s Ministry board supervisory meeting.  During these meetings we spend the time listening to other *Stephen’s Ministers discuss their work with their care receivers and their progress.  In case you are wondering, none of us know “who” the others are caring for, we are sworn to absolute confidentiality, so details […]

Joy Comes in the Morning

“Joy comes in the morning” would you agree?  Do you think Joy comes because you simply can’t cry all night long and wake up and immediately cry again?  Does Joy come because a sunrise is a promise of a new day and yesterdays problems are just that….yesterday?  I think it is all of that.  I […]

Where is Your Faith?

God, Creator of the Universe, Higher Power, Divine, Source Energy, call it what you will, we are connected! We are never disconnected from this Love of God unless we choose to be in a living Hell. I believe this. I love this! But sometimes when life beats me up, I need a huge reminder. My reminders come from people who really do love me. Today’s blog brought to you by my friend Mary. I thank her so very much for her wise words and her insight. Today she says, “It’s not about getting what you want, it’s about patience.”

Entitled and not so Elite

I have recently experienced a form of aggression that I have only experienced a handful of times in business, but now I’m going to spill it. I’ve said a hundred times that kindness and love matter and that they will change the world. Well, I’m not sure that it can overcome the blatant aggressive nature […]

Any Day Now…(insert the eye roll)

Rain is good for the soul, right? I thought so too until we have been under flood warnings again. I realize that there is nothing that I can do to stop the rain, believe me I would if I could, but enough is enough here in the Heartland. Nebraska is still in the recovery process […]
