Sick Days

It’s been a tough week. One day I woke up at about 4 in the morning, and nothing was wrong, but my throat didn’t feel right. It wasn’t...

Pottery Class

When Madi went off to college I don’t know how many times we told her to never go anywhere alone after dark. We explained in grisly...

Reality

I just had to do something that is absolutely ridiculous. I forwarded a blog to my daughter. Not one of mine, but one I had read...

In Control

I had my day planned. Breakfast, followed by devotions, paperwork and tying up loose ends for a company I’ve been hired to speak to, run...

Grace

This past Thursday morning Paul and I drove Madi to the airport and put her on a plane for the first leg of her journey to a semester...

Tribal

Many years ago Paul came home one day and told me he had signed our family up for a membership at the JCC. I asked what that was, and he...

Listen Up

I often try to stand near pregnant women in the hopes of looking thinner. That is probably something I should keep to myself, but since...

Flexibility

When the pandemic hit and the world closed down, I will admit that I enjoyed it for a while. No, not the fear, panic and suffering, but...

Surprise Joy

The days are swimming by so fast that I have a 5 minute conversation with myself each morning as I open my eyes. “Is it Friday or Monday?...

Letting Go

I think the biggest argument I ever got involved in was with a boyfriend in college who said I was irrationally stubborn. I know it...

In-dependence

Although it feels like the landscape of this country is changing and is certainly in turmoil, we are still a nation based on independence....

Pleasant Surprises

I’m typically a morning person. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to talk to anyone or have any interactions. I want to get up, have a...

Not It!

I know I’ve been writing a lot about smiling and light and positivity. As I’ve said before, I don’t advocate ignoring what’s really...

That Smile!

I don’t know a better way to say this. Sharing toothbrushes is gross. But the other day I heard that if a person has a cavity and...

Be The Light

It was a couple of weeks before Christmas, and Paul and I had been married a little over a year. One night we took Paul’s mom out to...

Kounter

The hostess looked down at the schematic diagram of the restaurant, and then she looked up and scanned the room. “I can go ahead and...

A Day at the Museum

Have you ever come across something so beautiful and unexpected that it stole your breath? I once walked into a hotel lobby and was...
