If Jack Russells were humans, I would so be a terrier woman; jumpy, impetuous, apt to fly off after odd things, devoted to food, and deeply affectionate.

DAY 20: ANOTHER F...ING BLESSING!
I once knew a minister who spoke about the elderly ladies in his church who--when talking of a friend who had passed would exclaim, "Wasn't it a blessing?" --would greet another hard event in life with the ironic quip, "Another f...ing blessing!" So I am go...

MOTHER'S DAY And so much else
It is Mother's Day. And there is so much to say about this odd, hot holiday verging on summer but not quite yet, like the words of one theologian who said we live in the "now and the not yet" time of God's presence and absence. I have so much gratitude abou...
