I called and she picked up

I called and she picked up. I wasn’t sure if the number I had was her landline or her cell.  If it was her cell it was a gamble as she often lost it or it wasn’t charged so when she picked up I smiled. Several times I told her who I was but two […]

The Gift of Everyone’s Story

When my Dad was a boy he was rather introverted.  He much preferred to spend time with his dog and his duck. Yes a duck. My grandmother claimed this duck produced the tastiest eggs ever.  Never had a duck egg so guess I will take her word for it. In any case my father was […]

So I was just hanging there like a side of beef….

Yes I was just hanging there like a side of beef waiting to be rescued. Wait I am getting ahead of myself.  Have to give you a little background first. Of my many talents one of them seems to be hanging around by a tether from high places.  Once I did it upside down.  Well […]

She was being brave and I missed it….

I was drying my hair the other day and thought I saw my first gray hair.  Oh the horrors.  Actually I laughed because I am overdue for one to show up and  several of my friends upon reading this are hating on me right now.  In my defense I can’t take credit for still having […]

It’s Thoughtful Thursday! The Easy Way to Bring Joy to Yourself and Others

When was the last time you received a handwritten letter or note?  Bet it has been awhile. I love receiving unexpected notes or letters .  Even if I know everything that is going on in that persons life  it is always good to see familiar handwriting in my mailbox. You can bet it is the […]

Interruptions on the Run…

Someone very wise once told me that it is the spaces between the notes that truly makes the music.  I wonder if that holds true for interruptions on the run.  I don’t think so ..insert eye roll. Way back when in 2017 I was on a serious running kick.  I was starting out with a […]

It’s Thoughtful Thursday..Spread kindness like glitter

I lost a friend to cancer the morning of December 24th.  She did not want to leave her family, husband, kids, grandkids or friends.  She was not so much concerned for herself but for them. I have another friend who is awaiting test results.  She is hoping for good news.  Not so much for herself […]

It’s Thoughtful Thursday : I will always be up for you..even if it’s 3am

I have been kind of absent here.  I had good intentions to get posts written but real life got in the way and then there is my dedication to procrastination.  I have written dozens of posts in my head but somehow they never made it onto paper or on the computer. In a nutshell our […]

Letting go and finding kindness…It’s Thoughtful Thursday!

It’s been awhile since I have had the time to post on Thoughtful Thursdays.  Feels good to be back and I am grateful that I have lots to share. Ironically  I have been graced with many “thoughtful” moments from good friends, family and chance meetings with strangers who will never know how they touched my […]

It’s Thoughtful Thursday! What I learned from Betty’s weekly hair appointment!

One of my earliest memories is my Dad making dinner for us on Friday nights.  He only cooked on Fridays because that was when Mom was at the hairdresser for her weekly appointment.  I probably remember those dinners so well because Dad only cooked two things: Scrambled eggs or Tuna glop. I believe the ” […]
