I am pulling for you

When it rains, it pours. I had almost finished my rant about my morning, and the site where I am typing this had a glitch and I lost everything. Guess that means that I should consider writing about something else this morning.

So I will take this opportunity to hope that everyone out there has . . . → Read More: I am pulling for you

Forgiveness

I have been thinking a lot about forgiveness lately. I feel like it is incumbent on me to forgive anyone who has done me wrong, and I think that is okay. And I also think it is okay to remember that forgiving someone doesn’t necessarily mean that they are welcome to remain an integral part . . . → Read More: Forgiveness

Happy Anniversary

Wow! I can hardly believe that we have been married for 35 years now; it seems like yesterday that I met this cute guitar player and fell in love. I know it is cliche – but time goes by fast, and the older you get, the faster it goes.

So Happy Anniversary a couple days . . . → Read More: Happy Anniversary

Life is not fair

Life is not fair, even though I want it to be. Bad things happen to good people; good things happen to bad people. Sometimes I don’t know which I am, but I do now that there are things happening to me that I would just as soon pass on.

Another school shooting

Oh man, another school shooting! When are we going to be able to fix this?

I saw the news this morning, and of course, I started to cry. So I immediately go into my “I am a filter, not a sponge” mantra, and I try to convince myself that this is not my pain I . . . → Read More: Another school shooting

Sometimes there are just too many choices: too many food choices, too many . . . → Read More: I am in charge of my own life

Tell people now that you love them

It happened again…another friend passed away. I guess I half-expected it, as I knew she had cancer, but it was still a shock, and it is still sad.

I do consider myself lucky enough to at least have known about the cancer. She told me about that herself, although not right away. But hey – . . . → Read More: Tell people now that you love them

Sleep

I have not been sleeping well for the last couple nights, and I am realizing what a difference that makes to my sense of well-being. Nothing else has changed, I just haven’t had a solid night’s sleep.

I am looking around wildly to try to figure out what is causing this. We just got back . . . → Read More: Sleep

Paleo, Vegan, Low Carb – Which Way do I go?

I keep thinking I am going to write some fiction here, and then I get sidetracked again by life.

So today I am dealing with that age old problem – who do you believe & how do you decide what is right?

I have been trying to decide what kind of a diet to follow . . . → Read More: Paleo, Vegan, Low Carb – Which Way do I go?
