This too shall pass.

The cool fall air is blowing in the sliding door that is behind me. Summer is over. Last night I sat around a campfire with friends. We were all wearing sweaters or sweatshirts. As I sat there, thankful for this great group of people that I have in my life, I thought about change. Given [...]

Make Lemonade.

This is a quote from the show, This Is Us, which John and I watched last night. This was the doctor talking to a father who just lost one of this triplets in childbirth. “I like to think that one day you’ll be an old man like me talkin’ a young man’s ear off explainin’ [...]

Key to happiness.

My key to happiness is surrounding myself with fun, uplifting, supportive and caring people. Today I am feeling very appreciative for the people in my life who are my keys to happiness. Thank you. Happy Friday!


Yesterday was the International Day of Peace. I turned on Good Morning America a few minutes ago and saw that people are rioting in Charlotte. Today, pray for peace. We can’t change the world, we can only change our world. Be peaceful. Teach your children to be peaceful.  

Pays to Discover.

I heard from the folks at Discover. Someone in the UK has gone on a shopping spree with my credit card. The woman I spoke with asked me if I made the $1,000 and nearly $4,000 charges. Nope. Can’t say as I did. Declined. I am glad that they are so on the ball. This [...]

Today’s thought.

It is a dark Sunday morning. Looks like it is going to rain today. It is currently 70 degrees. Fall is coming. I love fall. Life is good. Be patient and kind today. Smile. It is more than likely that at least one person you speak with today is concerned or worried about issues of [...]

A good place.

I had a dream last night that I was at my condo in Florida. I was with my parents. My dad was standing by the window and he said, “I like that when I stand here I can see our condo across the golf course. This condo is a good place for you.” My mom [...]

Felt Hat day.

I saw last night that yesterday was National Felt Hat day. Seeing that made me think of my mama. My mama could rock a felt hat. I took this photo one morning when I picked her up to go out to a doctor’s appointment. As we pulled into the parking lot there were no parking [...]
