“P” is for Patience

I’ve always been the one who says to others, “P is for Patience.”  It’s a subtle way of saying “chill out, relax, don’t get your knickers in a knot, etc.”  Well, today I had yet another opportunity to practice the “P” word.  I spent the afternoon with my 88-year old mother and stepfather.  Two walkers…

Coming Soon … A Photo a Day

WordPress just put out sort of a challenge to all of us who have our blogs hosted with them.  It’s all about blogging every day … the 365 project … which for me will mean that I plan to post a new photograph every day for 365 days of 2012. This means that I will…

Freedom from Fear?

We were meant to be in joy – not fear.  I mean really, what kind of God would want His creations to live in fear? What if you could go through just one day and not fear anything?  I think we don’t even realize sometimes the little fears, the tolerations, the nagging thoughts that take…

Merry Christmas to All

To all my family, friends and faithful followers –                   Merry Christmas!  Know that you are so loved.

Strange Experience

While on my trip to California, I experienced something very strange.  I received a call on my cell phone and as I looked at the display, it read “Witched.”  No name, no phone number, just that word.  And as it turned out, it was a woman calling to chew me out over something that she…

Outta Here!

Am I looking forward to my trip to California!  I won’t be posting until later next week.  I’ll be busy catching up with my daughter, who is turning 40, my grandkids, whom I haven’t seen in a year, and a dear friend whom I haven’t seen in longer than that. Have a great weekend and…

Stuff the Stagecoach

There are a lot of folks less fortunate than we are and we know that.  But at this time of year, many people in many communities pull together to get some great things done.  And even though there’s a lot of bad press these days about the “big banks” some of them are doing some…

Rain, Rain & Even More Rain

It just couldn’t get any wetter around here.  But who lives in the desert and doesn’t do the happy dance when it rains?  We knew this storm was coming in from the west and we’re all grateful, but the funny thing is that Tucsonans don’t really know how to drive in the rain. I went…

12-12-11

Wow! This has been quite a year for interesting combinations of numbers.  I woke up like any other morning today but as the day progressed I had a few extra opportunities to feel gratitude.  A phone call, an email, an encounter at the store with a woman that was very uplifting.  She explained to me…

He Gets It!

In my humble opinion, this man is the only GOP nominee candidate that actually “gets it.”  And he has gotten it for 30 years.  Everything he has said has happened in some form. Watch this video first  and then watch the one below it.  They are both real eye-openers! This next one is a real…

If Dr. Seuss Met Eckhart Tolle

My gratitude goes to Chris Cade, who sent me this today.  I don’t have much to say about it except that each day I learn something new about myself and the rest of us … we are all one but we seem to act otherwise.  I read Dr. Seuss to my kids many years ago…
