Advice

I don’t mind getting advice; in fact, I welcome it most of the time. But telling me that I “have to ” do something, or treating me like I am stupid because I am not doing the latest thing that you saw on the internet is not giving me advice. Honestly, when someone talks to . . . → Read More: Advice

My next big project

It seems that it may be time to start my next big project. I have been patiently (or not-so-patiently) waiting for it to be “ripe” so I can start. It has not been an easy wait for me, as I start to question if I should even be doing this, since I don’t seem to . . . → Read More: My next big project

We must remain hopeful

My heart hurts mightily. The country I have always been proud to be a part of is doing things in my name that I do not approve of. We are turning people away at the border – people who are coming here to ask for asylum because of horrific things that are happening in their . . . → Read More: We must remain hopeful

Asylum

I have mixed feelings about making this blog too political, but at this point that is what I am thinking about, so I guess I will go there.

I am having a hard time understanding that there are actually people in this country who think it is okay to separate children (even babes in arms) . . . → Read More: Asylum

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

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.

So yes, I occasionally go to . . . → Read More: Life is not fair

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

I am in charge of my own life

I am in charge of my own life. The choices are all mine to make. This is probably a good thing, although I must admit, there are times when I would like to turn over responsibility for my life to someone else. Sometimes there are just too many choices: too many food choices, too many . . . → Read More: I am in charge of my own life
