In A Booth At Exit 188

I called a friend to tell them that I was pulling off the highway at Exit 188 and making a stop to get something to eat. I was coming back from visiting my mom who I had just moved to a rehab hospital about 90 miles away from me. My mom spent the past two weeks in the hospital, recovering from [...]

Unexpected Jungle Trail

2017 started off with a bang! A bang that I didn’t plan. Unanticipated. Quite frankly, if my life were a NASCAR race, a caution would be nice about now, with a yellow flag that means all cars hold up now and a restart follows. But a NASCAR race my life is not. The day after Christmas I was [...]

5 on Friday: Fun Stuff

What a busy week it was, I’m so glad it’s Friday, are you? This week was full of aha moments and even teachable moments from being on crutches. I felt the kindness of others this week in a big way as I hobbled around in week three of being on crutches. My 5 On Friday feature is a post [...]

With a few hours left in the year 2016, I find myself reflecting over the laughs and the tears of the year. 2016 was good in my opinion, even amidst struggle and a heartbreaking loss. In fact, I find that every year is pretty good, I just choose to see it that way. The trying moments that this [...]

Lessons Learned By 45

As I celebrate another birthday it occurs to me that I may just be half way through my life. I’ve learned so much through this wonderful life. As in any life there have been many mountain top views and valley lows. But it has been one big adventurous. I’ve learned so many life lessons [...]

Managing Christmas Expectations

Last weekend I found myself having a severe case of FOMO. You know, the fear of missing out. After perusing Facebook and seeing photo after photo of friends having Christmas fun, parties, recitals, decorative homes and friends and families being oh so merry, I found the old familiar party [...]
