Joyful Journeys

I enjoy taking photographs; it is somewhat of a hobby of mine.  I have learned a great deal through my hobby.  Recently, I became aware that one of my greatest lessons was just to enjoy the moment and just to get out and about. You know, more into the world in which I live.  IContinue reading “Joyful Journeys”

Creating Lasting Childhood Memories

I love the memories we make with our children. I was just thinking the other day about all of the sweet memories my parents and family helped me create as a child.  What do you recall from yours?  I know we all have some memories of our childhood we would prefer to forget.  Sometimes lifeContinue reading “Creating Lasting Childhood Memories”

Waiting on Spring

Today, I noticed that the tulips near my mailbox have bloomed. I love it when the flowers emerge from the ground, bud, and then bloom as the petals open. There is such beauty in the refreshing spring growth. Things have been dormant and are now ready to begin anew again. I am always refreshed byContinue reading “Waiting on Spring”

Rest for the Weary, and for the Rest of Us Too

Rest, do you ever think about it? I mean seriously and intentionally plan rest into your day or week? Sometimes it seems we are going so fast we forget to stop. You know the old saying stop and take time to smell the flowers? While I think that’s a great idea, I am actually purposingContinue reading “Rest for the Weary, and for the Rest of Us Too”

Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone

I am trying something new this week.  Trying new things is not always something I do particularly well.  I like to try new things if it’s something that I wanted to try. Does that make sense? I like to do new things like a new hobby, going to a new movie or learning a newContinue reading “Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone”

I really don’t mind the age. Now, let’s be honest, I could do without all theContinue reading “I Shall Have Cheesecake”

My life as a Blogger

Such an interesting title for me. First off, blogging is not my life, but it sounded catchy so I went with it. Second off, if you know me, it is kind of amazing that I blog. Blogging became an ‘in’ thing and so many of my friends picked it up and ran with it. IContinue reading “My life as a Blogger”

Tired of Traveling?

I just don’t want to. I know I need to, but I don’t want to. Every. Single. Day. There is a new request, that usually feels more like a demand, for me. There are so many expectations that sometimes I find it beyond challenging to keep up with them. Have you ever felt like that?Continue reading “Tired of Traveling?”

Lonely, but not Alone

I see you sitting there. Reading this, alone, at the end of a day. I see you, and I understand you, because some times I am you. Sometimes, I think we all are. We live busy lives in a busy world, and yet sometimes we feel completely alone while surrounded by people. I am sorryContinue reading “Lonely, but not Alone”
