 How has your day been?

What are you eating?

What are you reading?

Saturday, April 29, 2023


 Why is so hard 

To trust the process 

For faith

To reign


You know 

It all

So help



The fear

Friday, April 28, 2023


 Sitting here

Listening to 

Fancy Like

Southern living

At its finest

Catchy tune

Making me happy

On a Friday afternoon

Where sun and clouds

Are fighting for dominance

Wishing some warm heat

Would win the battle

Raining cats 

And dogs 


On the couch

With a pooch

Who doesn’t 

Leave my side 

Wednesday, April 26, 2023


 It’s rainy here

The crops grow

And all I can

Think of 

The beautiful 

And bountiful harvest

That awaits. 

Love you

 Some of my favorites lately

Soup and grilled cheese

Pretty journals

Lip gloss

Good friends



What are grateful for today?

The attitude of children will put yours to shame. Children remind you that joy is something to actively seek, and maybe I haven’t done that. Life has become a chore, and it’s a blessing. In every appointment may I be thankful. Attitude of gratitude always. 

Dog wakes up early- I’m up to great them with love. 

Coffee too strong-  I’ll be fully awake

Cranky- put on music

Your turn

 PT today was more of a mental battle. Physically I was still put through it all, but my mind had battles. I’m having to wait and trust. I will say I’m amazed at what my body can do now. I’m not where I want to be, but I feel and see progress and I’m grateful. My routine is a few hours a day. I’m tired. It’s worth it to live a life no one expected. I don’t know if I expected it either. I’m grateful. The realization that PT and surgery may always be a possibility is known. I’m just trying to accept a reality I’ve always wanted to deny.   Love you all.

 Tell me something good. I spoke to my best friend and realized how strong and blessed I am. God’s got me and that’s what I need to remember. Love people and have them love you back.

Help me

To smile

And leave

It all in

The Hands

That can 

Take it all

Thank you

 Today’s one of those days. Trusting what I can’t know. Trusting what I don’t understand. My mind and I are in a battle. It’s in these times, I realized I’ve not come to full acceptance, full trust in who God has made me to be. You all tell me to give myself grace, so since you repeatedly give that sage advice, pray I can do just that. Thank you for coming back each day to hear me complain about the same darn thing again and again. Love you all.

 Lord, it’s me. Another eye appointment. Another question to contemplate. Right now, I’m at a crossroads. At this point, I don’t have an answer. Do I find one?  Is there a right one?  Life is in a gray zone. I’m muddled in puddles of puzzles. The solutions fix the surface, but leaves the roots exposed. Nothing is ever easy. Is the lesson that everything takes work. Soul searching, body breaking and mind blowing work.

 Human pretzel

Core is weak

I felt it

This is

A journey

Not a destination

I now know

Full well

Friday, April 14, 2023


 Friday gems

Another day

PT comes again

The human pretzel

Arrives once again

Thursday, April 13, 2023


 Spring days

Overcast skies

The wind is still

And maybe 

My mind

Will be too

How are you doing today?

Wednesday, April 12, 2023

Thank you


For your love

Fills this vessel

And leaves me awestruck

Thank you

Clocking in

 To say that in ten years of writing this blog, at this point in my life, I’m vulnerable. I’m fragile. I’m strong when needed. I don’t have a choice. You’re sustained on the knowledge that to survive and thrive, change will come. And my reactions have to be commensurate. I’m putting my body through the wringer, and my mind has yet to align. Every good thing takes time. Love you all


 Forty years of PT

Flip the script

Start at square one

What once served you

No longer does

God what are 


The same applies

For your house

I’ve changed

And that’s okay

I’m no longer

Who I once was

I’m learning who

I am 

Once again

Saturday, April 8, 2023



What are you teaching me

I’m angry 

I know where

It belongs 

And it’s not

To aired here

Friday, April 7, 2023


 It’s Good Friday

And in my humanity

I’m being selfish

Petulant and scared

All at the same 



Remind me

You hold it all

And gave it all

For sinners

Like me

 It’s in Your Presence 

I’m one with You

Whole and complete

Knowing you

Guard my heart

With Your own

Tuesday, April 4, 2023



Some days I feel like a human pretzel. How many ways can a body contort. How many ways can you stretch and strengthen. Discipline is still my biggest challenge. I have therabands, kinesiology tape and ankle sleeves. My body never knew hard work like this. The challenge to the body has awakened what the mind can do. It’s amazing. My body looks good, but the mind is shedding the shades.

 Last thing you bought?

Last thing you ate?

Best vacation you took?

 Smile wide

It’s springtime




Lead to sunshine
