This morning, I was working in my office (OK, it’s a closet…but, whatever) when I began to hear the rain quietly patter against the windows. Praise be to God, rain! I exited my chair and walked out to the deck to move my almost lifeless flowers out into Mother Nature’s watering can. Out of the … More BE A SQUIRREL IN THE RAIN
The greatest gift she has ever given me is time. Our grandma turned 92 years young on Monday.

What do you buy a perfectly content woman who has everything … More 92 YEARS YOUNG
A few weeks ago, with some hesitation, I attended my 20-year class reunion. As I have aged, somehow, I have obtained a wee bit of social anxiety…. let me tell you….in the hours leading up to this event it was at an all-time high! As I was getting ready for the evening, a thousand thoughts … More TWENTY YEARS

I hear people say it all the time, including myself…tomorrow is a new day, another day, another chance. But what if it’s not? What if today was it?
