Keeping Promises

Leaving home isn’t for the weak of heart. It doesn’t matter why you’re leaving. It will always be uncomfortable. When the reality of being away sets in. The new place, new people, unfamiliar surroundings will slam in on you. A real slap to the face. Maybe not all at once, which might actually be better. […]

Fresh Start

Starting over isn’t that hard. It’s all the stuff that usually calls for a “start over” that’s hard. It’s usually pretty easy to walk away. Cut ties. I’ve done it. Too many times to share… and in big ways and small. You don’t have to move, break up, cut your hair or change jobs to […]

Slivers of Light

Today TODAY! my lovely Emma will load up and head out for her 5th semester of college. This departure is especially daunting. I’m somewhat used to her leaving, after 2 years away, but this time she’s heading to Ireland. Yes, THAT IRELAND. The one 5000 miles away. You know the old adage…’you never know what […]

Join hands and hearts and voices…

(Anyone get the reference of the title?) Your Facebook shares and mine, aren’t changing anyone’s mind. Or heart. On Facebook I have 1049 “friends”. This is weird because often I feel very lonely in the way I think and feel about things. In this over 1000 people, there are some from the US, some from […]

Lent: Day 2 (I’m lagging)

Today is International Women’s Day. I’m thankful that I am a part of a chosen family that has depth of meaning, especially my Wine & Wisdom Girls. I was reluctant to join a women’s group, but now I don’t know what I would do without you. Ladies, I honor you and you are loved. Thank […]

Lent: Day 1

I thank myself for: Spending time with a friend who moved away, walking at the beach. Making room in my schedule for friends and those we care about enriches all of us. It’s never time wasted when we connect with one another in a simple, yet meaningful way. Thank you, Rene’ for hanging out with […]


I’m doing something for Lent. WHAT IS LENT: ‘Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. In the early church, Lent was a time to prepare new converts for baptism. Today, Christians focus on their relationship with God, often choosing to […]

stopping time.

You can’t ok. I just wish you could. When the kids were little and they wanted to take a break while playing or something they would yell “PAUSE” as if they were holding the remote to the universe. I agree, little ones! I call ‘PAUSE’. This year has been such a crazy roller coaster, eye […]
