Popcorn and a movie
Shopping and lunch
Waking the dog and coffee

Please pray for two sweet girls and their moms
Ashby and Shay Shull
Charlotte and April Robsom

Cherish your health, the only wealth that matters.


Let me be kind
Even if
I'm full
Of rage
Let me be merciful
Even when
I see injustice
Let me be
The embodiment
Of grace
Even if
They don't deserve it

Last book you read?
Last thing you watched on TV?
Last song you sang?

Humbly, thank you

Some things about me
I hate asking for anything.  If you'd like to send me anything, I'm more than grateful and thrilled.
I love trying new restaurants.
I despise trying on clothes.
I love buying books.
I read the newspaper daily.

Thank you friends
for loving me
supporting me
and giving me
Hope that good
overcomes the pain
the self-induced disdain
for self
Thank you
for being the love
i couldn't give
i am grateful
and humbled
Thank you for
the gift that keeps
giving me a reason
to continue
in spite of disappointment

Last blog you read before mine?
Last thing you ate?
Last thing you drank?


The fresh air
Of a new day
A new reason
To give praise
I thank You
For my
Many blessings
Including you
Who read
My words

Tell me

Where you live?
Best part about living there?
If I went there, what would I find?
What souvenir or memory would I bring back?

Receiving snail mail and gifts I didn’t expect
Ice cream

What brings you joy?

God is here
Where I am
Loving myself
Is loving You
And others
The hardest thing
May also be its best reward

The words flow without regard
Without regret
Disabling pain is at ease
Knowing I am
Facing the pain
Not letting it reside
In the sacrosanct places

The greatest thought
Is I'm
My biggest roadblock


Bottled water or tap
Sore bought or Farm to table
Old School or New

Broken heart

I don't owe you those
I've given too much
Time to what others think
It got me nothing
But a broken heart


What are you eating today?
Last magazine you read?
Last blog you viewed before mine?

Hardest language to learn?
How many can you speak?
How many can you understand?

German or Russian

I'm starting this radical kindness challenge because I want to be the hands and feet of Jesus. I want to live out faith, not so much religion. Any suggestions?  I have to get back to simplicity

Kindness challenge

Radical kindness challenge
Who's in?

Last tv show you watched
Phone call made
Text received


Drifting off
As the ocean
Waves crash
Into each other
Violent and chaotic
Not knowing
What comes next

What are you reminiscing about?
What are you doing?
What are you thinking?

Enjoy the journey
The ride
Don't want to miss
The moments
I could've had
