Storms

A summer storm just darted through our area. It’s been a long while since I’ve heard the rolling thunder in the near distance. Clouds were somewhat dark, and the rain gently tapped the windows. I have to say, it was refreshing. There’s just something soothing about a summer storm. Although there’s absolutely nothing you can […]

No Title

I normally don’t share anything here unless I have come to a conclusion as to what the lesson is in my life experience. However, at this moment I’m not sure what that is. I only know that I am sad because I lost a dear friend today. You see, she’s been battling cancer. When I […]

Color

A couple weeks ago, friends from our church gave us a lovely house warming gift from their home – cone flowers. I watched as she carefully dug them up after a good rain. I couldn’t wait to plant them in our flower garden. They were special of course since they came from a friend, and […]

Know the Difference

You know, I think most of us try our best to be good humans. At the very least, people try to be good at something. What makes life frustrating, however, is when you experience something that just isn’t fair. For example, like when you are doing your best and it’s still not enough. You still […]

Do you see the good in life?

I know most of you don’t know me, and If I had to describe myself, I guess the positive side is that I normally try to find the good in life situations and in people. I really don’t think it’s that difficult, although there’s been a few situations when I struggled to see the purpose, […]

It’s the little things

We took a walk this afternoon on a new trail. I just happened to look up and saw the witch’s hat, sparkly red shoes, tin man and magic wand hanging from the trees. I LOVED The Wizard of OZ when I was a young girl. It’s obvious someone else out there does, too.
