Who is Driving Your Car?

My family recently completed some car shopping. Now, you probably need to know that I am not a fan of car shopping, and if ever there was a time not to car shop… well that would be now. Selections are almost non-existent as most car dealers have almost empty lots. But for some odd reasonContinue reading “Who is Driving Your Car?”

Turning the Kaleidoscope

Today’s blog is a slightly different perspective, stay with me though and hopefully you will glean something helpful in these words. A Kaleidoscope Life… the concept is that if you turn the kaleidoscope even slightly you change the picture. So, if we apply that concept to our lives… if you change something even slightly youContinue reading “Turning the Kaleidoscope”

Time, Where Did You Go?

Greetings Friends!  I hope you are well.  I have had a busy summer, and so, I wrote a little less.  But I have missed you and it is time to get back into a routine.  I work as a School Counselor, which means my summers are all my own. For the most part, I getContinue reading “Time, Where Did You Go?”

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 Shall Have Cheesecake

Happy Birthday to me…. Thank you for stopping by to share in my birthday party! I find the celebrations change as we get older, yet I continue to celebrate. You see, I am glad I am having a birthday. 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”
