It's been so long. I have been roaming through my mind trying to find solid ground and still seem to be floundering. I've gained back at least half of the weight that it took so long to get off, gave away about 70% of my clothes, have cleaned an... Read more

The begonias continue to flourish and bloom in the planter in my office. I will be a little sad and somewhat disappointed when and if they fade back. The dark pink blossoms have given me a bit of distraction from the mundane routines all during ... Read more

I have really been distracted by all the grief and turmoil of the last few months. I have, of course, continued to pray and take the one step at a time routine, but now it's becoming time to get up out of the dust and get going on life again. I'... Read more

I woke up this morning to a dusting of snow on the ground. There are times, especially when I don’t have to be anywhere at a specific time, when I don’t mind seeing weather like this slip in. I heard a weatherman refer to it as ‘sugar coating’. ... Read more

I have scattered memories of my childhood Christmases. Of course, that was long enough ago that dinosaurs still roamed the earth and we used giant ferns to decorate the halls. I can’t remember what age, what year, what the overall season was lik... Read more

There are many things about Honey’s life that he wasn’t proud of. He told me on many occasions that if I really knew him that I wouldn’t stay with him. I found it odd that a man who leaned so hard on the Lord and was confident that he was forgiv... Read more

As most of you know, especially my daughter, I don’t cook. I know how to to some degree or another, but I don’t like the process and the cleaning up. But, by the time January rolled around, like most women, I thought it would be romantic to coo... Read more
