Looking for the Good - A Week-long Recap
There was a lot of good for me this past week.   So much so, that my inauspicious start to this month's challenge... well, became even more inauspicious. And though there's a part of me that feels guilt over focusing on what around me is blessed while the w...

Looking for the Good - Reminders
Sometimes the good in my day is found reading scripture or devotionals... Other days I simply see a lovely quote with a lovely picture. Then I inhale the good... and exhale the stress... Just going to leave this here for all of you to breathe in. {Pray you'...

Looking for the Good - The Water, Part 1
There are days that I quite literally go out "looking for the good." For me, that's the ocean... Or bay... Or river... Really any body of water will do. I'll sigh in contentment over a puddle if that's all there is around. Being in Huntington Beach for at l...

A Final Act
I hate feet.  Have I ever mentioned that here? I have a number of idiosyncrasies but feet may top the list.  I've never liked them.  I had a real aversion in high school.  Couldn't even look at them.  I had a friend, Kerri, who had the only feet I actually ...

30 Days of Loving Well - Each Other
I got distracted this morning while preparing to write.  I started looking down my right column of stats about my posts...when they were published, how many people read them...that type of thing.  I NEVER do this anymore; not since my first five months with...

30 Days of Loving Well - Daughters
Today I have only one teenager. But two children. Can you guess why? (This scenario is not quite as complicated as the riddle,  as told by our friend David, that  Colleen loved solving years ago at a camping trip up in Yosemite:  A teenage boy is in an acci...

30 Days of Loving Well - Sons
Seventeen years ago, I didn't have much of a frame of reference for raising a boy. I am one of five sisters - no brothers! - so girls were my wheelhouse. (Not that I raised me and my sisters...but at least I knew what we liked, what made us mad and what clo...

30 Days of Loving Well - Marriage
I've written here about my marriage... my husband... what we do well and what we will forever need to work on. I don't know much about marriage and would never presume to advise anyone on the correct way to maneuver in one. In fact, I'm so woefully not-know...
