Angels, they do exist! I know I have one looking after me.

For as long as I can remember I loved angels. At Christmas when I was very young my mother bought me my own angel to decorated our Christmas tree which started my collection of angels that I put out every year for Christmas.  So it isn't strange for me that I believe in angels.  Always have and always will.  They do exist, I know this for sure.  I can't prove it nor do I want to!  I just know. I think that angels are all around us we just have to be open to feeling their presence....more

A Decent Day

What is it about sixty degree weather that makes you want to take care of yourself, or, at least that’s what I have experienced. I have suffered through the summer with no will to do anything, and now that the taste of sixty degrees has shown its face, I want to get my stuff back together and feel better, period, end of story.I am due to be encompassing on a new life’s journey and I’ll be damned if I want to feel like this all the time. ...more

Resolute to Change


Your Daily Reading: “Living Wide Awake” Careful of Getting in a Rut 5-4-12

It seems like an uneasy peace and the illusion of balance in a stagnant situation. While there may be conflict w/no solution in sight, it’s only because you’re lost in the context.If you’re feeling stubborn, obstinate, obsessed by problems, or of being victimized, these are all components of being lost in the illusion.Exercise caution with breaking promises and spending excesses.The reality is to change your concentration to material gain, rather than on lack.Efforts are paying off with hard work planned well in advance....more

Resolve is a Quiet Matter

It's day five of the New Year and I have yet to seriously list any resolutions.  Certainly there is my list of things I aspire to do - hope to do, but they are not really resolutions.A resolution is something that is resolute - that implies committment and focus and concentration and real change.  People turn to mantras and key words and themes for the year and I enviously want to do the same.  But it's already post-new year and I've had no brilliant epiphany....more

A Food Chain of Teachers

For days on end a little titmouse has flown against the vaulted window in our front room. Starting at daybreak and returning again and again until nightfall, it seems to want entrance or passage –persistently undaunted by the fact that neither is obtainable. Trying to see from its point of view, we removed an eye-level reproduction of a little red cardinal perched in a silk plant on top a bookcase. It made no difference whatsoever. Bonk, bonk, bonk, its little beak repeatedly sounds its single-minded, albeit questionable, undertaking. It’s getting a little on my nerves....more

Carpet Stains of Doom

I have a raging headache right now.  The cause?  The carpet cleaner I used this afternoon.  I can hardly focus - my head, it pounds.  You know what I am going to do in the next few days, though?I'm going to buy two more bottles of carpet cleaner and finish the job.  That's how good this stuff is.  See for yourself. ...more

Needing a Little New Years Resolve...

I'm not big on New Years resolutions... I never have been. I tried it last year, resolving to loose 20 pounds, and it worked... until I gained it all back again. That said, I feel the need for some personal resolve right now. Maybe it's just a coincidence that it comes at the new year but I'm feeling the need for a shift in my life. It has been a rough five years. We, my family and I, have seen more hospitals and doctors than anyone should have to. At times it has felt life our lives have been dominated by death, illness and fear....more
