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 […]

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.”

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 […]

❤️🤪❤️😍

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 […]

Can you hear me?

As I hold your hand I thought about how many times I studied them, the shape, your fingers, your rings, the softness. I think about the mornings over a cup of coffee and a cigarette and watching how you held your cards while we played our thousandth game of gin rummy. I think about seeing […]

Cha cha cha changes

Ask for a topic and I get several and really all of them give me ideas that give way to larger discussion! Choices, strength, friends, finding yourself, graduation, marrying into a family (of which I won’t touch!), even tick viruses, but I think the thing that is heavy on my mind is “finding myself and […]

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 […]

Wednesday Mornings

I go to a women’s Bible study at my church on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 a.m. I think that I have been going for almost five years, but knowing how time gets away from me, I am not sure. I love this group and I love each of the ladies in this group. When I […]

Dad…..peace

I took my Dad home to Kilspendie Kirk in Kilspendis Scotland on Sunday, September 30th, a journey that is now complete. It is no accident that everything that has happened up to this point, either in my life, or in my grief was bringing me full circle even if I didn’t know it at the […]

Life is poetry…

……There lies the port: the vessel puffs her sail: There gloom the dark broad seas. My mariners, Souls that have toiled, and wrought, and thought with me – That ever with a frolic welcome took The thunder and the sunshine, and opposed Free hearts, free foreheads – you and I are old; Old age hath […]
