Just returned home from 4.5 hours of cleaning the church so I am feeling achy and tired. Also feeling as if the gratitude bank might be a little low on 'funds' at the moment. Let's see what I can come up with. I find it especially hard not to re... Read more

Good morning on this cold, windy day. Still playing catch up so I might have to post two blogs today. For someone who was not comfortable blogging at all, this is a positive change. I am grateful for change. 1) We are taking a break from t... Read more

COUNTING MY BLESSINGS: DAY 3
Monday, March 13, 2017      9 comments

Hello again. I awoke today feeling tired. Knowing that I had a busy morning ahead of me I decided to forgo the shower until later. Not the best of ideas since that just adds one more level of yuckiness to a day that I was not exactly lookin... Read more

I have really been struggling these past few months. In November I finally gave up my flyer job of 22+ years. Our extremely cold temperatures, huge amounts of snow and increasingly problematic knees made it impossible for me to get the job done.... Read more
THANKSGIVING
Monday, October 10, 2016      12 comments

My Thanksgiving was truly a God-send. Yesterday I received an unexpected invite to join a new friends' extended family for Thanksgiving. She must have planned this ahead of time because she'd taken my phone number home from the office where I am... Read more
Just Feeling 'Off'
Saturday, August 27, 2016      11 comments

It's been a weird week for me. I can't say that I am sick, just feeling off or not quite myself. I can't put my finger on what might be the cause but it's not like me to have a lot of physical symptoms - bloating, muscle aches, headaches, feelin... Read more

REFLECTIONS ON CHRISTMAS DAY
Saturday, December 26, 2015      9 comments

Well, it's over now and I survived. I spent Christmas day alone. No phone calls, no visitors, no invites. I suppose I could have felt lonely and depressed, self pitying even. But it was not the first (or last) time I have been alone, and I was d... Read more
MOTHER'S DAY
Friday, May 08, 2015      14 comments

I am not a regular blogger but feel compelled to mention that Mother's Day is not always the happy occasion that most would make it out to be. At least not for everyone. Life with my mother was nothing short of a nightmare. I find myself just sh... Read more
30 Day Challenge: eliminate sugar from diet
Friday, February 20, 2015      2 comments

Yesterday was not a healthy eating day. I find myself sick again, the third time this winter, and that's a lot for someone who "never gets sick". Daughter decided to bake 3 things, 2 from a mix, and although I had no appetite for anything (sore ... Read more
