You Get More Bees with Honey! Honey!

I look at my life in little moments and blocks of time rather than looking at the big picture. I look back at moments when I was growing and learning and it gives me a much more like-able view of who I am since I have gotten older! Now, those moments of growth have turned […]

How Many More?

It’s easy to get caught up in the news this morning; more devastating news about victims, families, more information about the shooters, more partisan politics, more rage, more hate, more sadness, more helpless feelings from ordinary people like me. I feel asleep listening to some of it last night and I had nightmares literally all […]

Dog Days of ….People

The dog days of summer haven’t gotten to me, but the dog days of the negative energy of people is wearing me out!! I think  that it is pretty sad when my son calls almost every morning to ask if I have been yelled at by a customer yet!?  Seriously!  It is a good day […]

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 […]

29 and Counting (and I don’t mean kids)

When I am working my ”real job” and the connection goes out, it gives me a chance to pester my readers with another blog!! Today began like most.  It’s a well known fact that I don’t sleep well, so I tend to sleep with my dad’s t shirt wrapped around my  head and eyes to […]

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.”
