New Life Progressing

Once again, nearly a week goes by and I am just coming back to write another blog.  I did say that this page would follow life, and so it is. Much has happened in the last few weeks.  Since I've starting listening to music again, everything has opened up and my creative passion has come … Continue reading New Life Progressing

The Power Of…

When I was a child, I used to tell my mother, "When I grow up, I am going to have...)", and I would list off all of the things I wanted for my life.  In true fashion for her, my mother would find ways to denigrate every thing I said, and tell me why I … Continue reading The Power Of…

Gratitude versus Demand

So my long work weekend is done, and my work week is almost over.  One of the things about my job is that I get to see a lot of people all the time.  Some are regulars, some just stop in, then leave and I never see them again.  But even in those 30 seconds, … Continue reading Gratitude versus Demand

What’s In A Marriage?

As often happens, today's post comes from lessons and experiences in my own life, and being a minister who performs weddings regularly, that means there's a lot of experience.  But today's lesson isn't just from performing weddings, it's also from my own personal life....and watching my successes and failures, learning from my mistakes.  But just … Continue reading What’s In A Marriage?

Right now it's still morning, for me.  While many of you are already in the process of getting ready to go out to a romantic dinner, or special date with your significant other, in my house, I'm still waking up, and my husband is still asleep. Valentine's Day for us is not a big deal.  … Continue reading Valentine’s Day

Requiem for the Friend I Will Never Know

Today I need to honor someone.  Someone I will never have the chance to meet, or to know.  But I honor her because I know all I need to know about her, to know that she is my friend. Many years ago, I had a friend in high school.  We weren't particularly close, but he … Continue reading Requiem for the Friend I Will Never Know

The Spirit of Christmas

Today I want to dedicate my post to those who cannot be with their families and loved ones today.  This post is for those working in medical facilities, emergency services, call centers, stores, military, etc.  But this post is also dedicated to those who may have the day off, but can't be with their loved … Continue reading The Spirit of Christmas

The Most Wonderful Gift

The last couple of days I've been feeling very retrospective, as I always am at this time of year.  I'm certain most of us go through the same thing.  Another year older, and what does it mean?  Also, because the holiday season is here, the new year is coming, and so has the greed. It … Continue reading The Most Wonderful Gift
