Because it haunts me

It's all about gathering your courage to take that first step


The End

A year has gone by since I first started this endeavor. I know I had a few misses, and there were a few days where I didn’t even want to get out of bed let alone post.  But those days were fewer as the year went on. There is a more important point. Do I […]

Is it really the 30th

I know it’s a ridiculous question but it needed to be said. Oddly I’m sad to see this year come to a humble end instead of out with a bang. One more quote to share: “You create your opportunities by asking for them.”-Shakti Gawain


Even though I left iPhone, Apple refuses to let me leave. iMessage seems to be still intercepting text messages. I swear that company is like one of my ex stalking boyfriends. Now let me out aside this hiccup and share a quote that I like a lot: “In the depth of winter I finally learned […]

To relax or not

This was an odd day and not quite the type of holiday I’d expected. I was pleasantly surprised by several folks contacting me today-including all my kids. Ok, in truth I expected the kids, but it was nice to be remembered by others. I spent most of the day in the kitchen which wasn’t a […]

Christmas Eve

I love Christmas Eve. I mean I know it’s the eve before Christmas and all…but there are moments when the whole world feels connecting. It’s like for one night, no matter what happens, everything will be okay.

This is what was missing

I put off decorating for the holiday because it was going to be just the two of us. But then it hit me that was just another excuse to avoid getting involved in living life. This nativity is the real reason to celebrate the season. A reason for me to reach out to others. Though, […]

Seriously one of the best gifts

Rarely do I get a handmade gift, but this year instead of candy a friend made me a handblown ornament: “Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.”–Dale Evans
