Facing Relationships

Sunday, April 14, 2013 Time To Refuel

April 14, 2013

Running on empty today, that's not good.   Many, many good things the past several weeks but not enough time to just sit and recharge.   Last night I thought eating the bag of salt and vinegar kettle chips would help me feel better.... a bit of carbs stress eathing. .. umm nope, I don't feel any better.   So the plan for this gray Sunday is to sit and stare out at the newly thawed lake with its' loons, geese, and ducks bobbing up and down.




Writing versus Speaking... ugh 4/7/2013

April 7, 2013

Ok, so I have worked hard to finish my first book. I am relieved, happy, it does feel like a big accomplishment.  Interestingly enough, it has not been a deeply held goal to be a writer.  Some people are born with the beautiful gift of expressing themselves on the written page, my friends Sue Govier and Kristin Keir, they are natural born writers.   Their thoughts pour out, descriptive, lovely and deep in rich words.

We Say It More Often

March 24, 2013

The past few years have contained more than the usual amount of difficult moments for my family.  Think of a crisis and well... we probably faced it in the span of seven years. But one outcome of these difficulties is positive.  We say I love you more often.  Going through hardship and adversity can be exhausting, its' burdens can feel too heavy to bear.  I have lost count how many times I said, enough already!  I have also lost count how many times I have said, I love you.

I Have Hope

March 17, 2013

I have hope for the future!  I recently spent a weekend in Houston Tx. with some 20-somethings.  I was working on my book.  These individuals were kind, friendly, helpful and generous.  We had a lot of fun.  They offered their time and skills freely, without expectation of getting something in return.  They are so smart; they knew how to use the latest technology to solve problems. It took their great patience to explain it all to me. They collaborated with each other to offer other solutions.  They didn't seem to care who got the credit.
