They are back.

So, two of my friends have returned. I just love mourning doves. The mourning dove is a symbol of life, hope, renewal and peace. They symbolize the Holy Spirit. They also represent those that we love who are now living in Spirit.  As we move through February and closely approach March, I am very happy [...]

Feeling better.

I am feeling a bit better today! I actually slept a total of almost seven hours! I am not going to do too much today, but I am SO hopeful that soon I will feel like my old self again soon. If you can, go outside today! Breathe some of that warm fresh air! Happy, [...]

A human being.

Today, I am a human being. I have been forced to do nothing. Having bronchitis has not slowed me down, it has stopped me. I could become frustrated or agitated as I sit and think about all of the things I need to do. I could let my mind race. I could let my thoughts [...]

Your soul and spirit.

It sure does look and feel like spring in Pittsburgh. I don’t know how long this is going to last, but I also know that just as we get used to it, it will snow. Speaking of snow, we certainly did not see much of it this year. I really love a good snow storm. [...]


I just loved this article… Consciously Reconnecting BY MADISYN TAYLOR If you feel abandoned or cut off from Spirit, know that it is always there for you waiting for you to plug back in.

Stay in the moment.

I can’t believe it is Friday. Tomorrow I will be home a week already. I have done nothing in the last week, including sleep. While I am beginning to feel a little better, my cough is out of control. I sit on the couch all day long. I have been doing a lot of praying [...]

Went to see the doctor yesterday. I have bronchitis. I was up coughing all night. I have a temperature of 102 and a splitting headache. If you can send me good juju and prayers today, I will accept them all.  

Off to the doctor.

I had a terrible night’s sleep last night. I travelled between my own bed, the guest bedroom and the couch. Nothing helped. I coughed most of the night.  At one point I woke up to this loud, weird noise. It was not too long before I realized that it was ME who was making the [...]

Under the weather.

I was coughing when I went to bed last night. Decided to get up and go sit in a comfy char until I was really tired. I had taken cold medicine, so I thought it won’t be long before I started to fall asleep. Seven hours later I woke up in the chair. My voice [...]
