I don’t know where to begin! I have so much bubbling inside me that I am not sure where to start!! First, I am so full of absolute gratitude for this journey of life. I have rounded the bend and have turned on a light that I refuse to shut off. I have worked on … Continue reading Like Nothing Else
This may read a bit jangly or jankie! I apologize to the English majors… I are one of those too!! I got so many thoughts that I’m not making great sentences!! Don’t feel like editing and I’m on my phone! Lol. Hard to type! A few years ago when my kids fell in love and … Continue reading Last One
Remind Me, It’s Christmas…
I have been yelled at twice today. I am overly cautious about the way I talk to vendors and customers on the phone. My gravelly voice is often misinterpreted for being "short or cross" so I intentionally try to corral that impression! (insert eye roll) Today I was yelled at for no reason and still … Continue reading Remind Me, It’s Christmas…
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 … Continue reading Joy Comes in the Morning
Thank you Rusty Peter
I've Lost my dog. He wasn't just any dog you see, he was beautiful, smart, and perfect for us! We have all said that he saved us, each one in their own way, he saved us. We uprooted our family in 2005; uprooted everything at 5, 11, and 15. It was a hot day in … Continue reading Thank you Rusty Peter

I think about seeing … Continue reading Can you hear me?
What Could I Have Said?
Yesterday was the first day of Spring and the light half of the year is finally upon us. For many of us it is like our life's blood finally starts to flow and warm from the depression and weight of winter's toll. My heart is broken for there are some who didn't make it. My … Continue reading What Could I Have Said?
Joy? or no?
I am stubborn! This may come as a shock to you, but I am!! I am also a slow learner!! Some lessons have taken me over 40 years to sink into my thick skull!! For instance, I need to apologize to Mike when I do something that he doesn't appreciate. I don't like to tell … Continue reading Joy? or no?
Heart Repair at Christmas
Recently I have had many friends that have required heart surgery to repair various issues. It rattled some thoughts in my head and I realized that I never seem to think of all of the mechanisms at work that keep my heart pumping. Beside the obvious and magnificent elements that created such a perfect organ … Continue reading Heart Repair at Christmas
Life in the Heartland….
I have lived in the Heartland most of my life. I was born in the desert of Western Kansas and later moved to the Oklahoma/Kansas border. After I got married I moved to South Central Nebraska for 15 years and in 2005, back to the center of Kansas. While you will hear me often complain … Continue reading Life in the Heartland….
