random things i'm thankful for

In the past few weeks we've been doing a lot of yardwork, including trimming and pruning trees and bushes (including taking out a huge gnarled rosebush). That meant a TON of garbage (approximately 12 garbage bags ugh)....more

Need a Gratitude List? Simply Look Up

Stop, look up, above your busy little world; just look above your head.Why do kids plead to play outside?Why do we rush out of the door on Fridays to camp, fish, golf, play sports or simply lay in the sun?For me, just looking at my gardens,even more so working in the warm earth,lifts my spirits, nourishes something deep within me.It is like drinking in beauty through my eyes.Perhaps nature is another portal into heaven;Perhaps God is present is in every molecule of nature....more

Early Christmas Present - Self-Actualization

It took moving 6,000 miles away from home to find my domestic side... or any side actually, but for this post I'll stick with the domestic. It's one of the strangest discoveries that I didn't think existed, just like Santa Claus. Instead I found out it was simply dormant for the past thirty years, awakened only when the distractions of living in Los Angeles and America in general were taken away....more

Thursday Thankfulness: Thanksgiving

So I haven't blogged too much about our Thanksgiving, but we stayed in town (my parents and grandparents live here). It's a wonderful blessing to have everyone pretty close. Thanksgiving always makes me reflect on the previous year and all of the wonderful things that have happened. This past year, I'm thankful that E turned two and is so much fun to be around. I'm thankful that my brother had a cancer-free scan after two years post surgery. I'm thankful that my sister-in-law had a successful surgery and a tumor removed....more
