Back Again

I cant believe I did not post for the entire month of August. 

That was not the plan. 

But it is what happened. 

First, I appologize. 

There were reasons beyond my control. Sort of. I got really sick while on vacation.

Gotta Laugh, Cry or Cuss

Today has been one of those days.


I haven't had one of these in a long time. But, here it was, just when I least expected it. 

We are currently in our motor home, on our way to visit family in Ohio. Yes, currently. At 10:35 PM. In the ptich black, with at least 1/2 hour left to go before we get to our campground. Because, it has been one of those days. In fact, although it has not seemed like it, as I think about it now, it has been one of those weeks. I should have expected it, but it hit me abruptly tonight as I cleaned up the entire bottle of wine that exploded onto the floor as we were surging forward through stop and go traffic, in the rain and construction in Charlotte, NC. Oh, and there was an accident. We were not involved. Except for the one that was happening INSIDE the moho (motorhome). 

Let me start at the beginning.

Nothing to Fear

This morning when I awoke, I went out on my balcony as is my custom to watch the sunrise.

I know. I am very blessed. I have a balcony over the pool. It is beautiful. And it is the perfect place to take in the sunrise. My little view of heaven.

As I was looking out today, a mockingbird was in the tree nearby just singing away. 

He (or she- I can't tell)  just sang and sang. 

I, as is also my custom, starting talking to God.

What's on your Nightstand? AKA Summer Reading List

I have often been asked, "what's on your nightstand?" 

At first, I didn't understand the question. 

"My vitamins, an alarm clock with an iphone dock, a basket to catch junk, my nose strips, a lamp...that pretty much sums it up."

But then I realized I was being asked, "What are you reading? and what is on the stack to read?"

Well, why didn't you just say so???

The Stuff of Happiness

To continue from the last post, which I know, I know- it was supposed to be the day after that, but hey, better late than never, right?

Seriously, though I am sorry. I want to do better, but I just get busy with my stuff, and then the day goes by, and another day, and here it is June 11 and I haven't posted in days and I feel like a terrible person.....not really, ok, maybe just a little. I really am sorry. I am trying to be consistant. But life is so daily and I am so tired!! 


So here I go. Happiness. Why I am not ever consistantly happy. And what is better. Remember?If not, go read this post first: Happiness Revisited   Then come back. I will be here when you get back.

My Garden

Hello! I am so glad you’ve stopped by. If you happened to stop by my house on any given day, I would insist you have a homemade goodie, let me fix you a cup of tea and join me in the garden for a chat. We would sit out in the sunshine and share our journey together. And we would pray. O how we would pray.
