I Love Family!

Having received this in the mail today and perused it several times, prayed it, felt it touch my heart, I wanted to share it with all of you so you would feel it too. There is so much bad going on in our world, horrible things, that when something touches us for good, I think we should share... Sign in to see full entry.

Nothing New For Me

Junk Mail from the Postman Scam calls on the Phone M inbox is empty of anything unread No delivery of flowers No neighbors in for chat Words of sharing caring, baring of the soul Just left unsaid I guess it could be that I am not putting out either. "A man (or woman) that has friends must show... Sign in to see full entry.

So Says The Old Bat

When my Dad was about the age that I am now, I approached him when he was in the process of reading his Bible, which he did every day. He looked up and said to me: "You know, one day you are going to be old like me. It comes to everyone and sooner than one thinks it will. It describes it well here... Sign in to see full entry.

More Music Please

Music tends the heart when nothing else will sooth the pain caused by this world and all its woes... No, it will not cease nor go away but comes again when music's o'er. That's how it goes. A bit of respite though small it be floating, floating on music's airs, and peace one knows. Today, actually... Sign in to see full entry.

He Who He Who

I think our female maintenance man, our woman maintenance person, our fix-it lady, or whatever you would call her, must have quit. I haven't seen her around the complex for days and days. Actually, she was the maintenance supervisor with several maintenance men under her direction and tutelage. She... Sign in to see full entry.

The Cicadas Of August

I hadn't realized they were singing to me. Totally absorbed in the Friday evening episode of American Ninja Warrior, this time in Kansas City at an outside location set up in front of our famous Union Station and between it and our also famous World War I Museum, the noise of the cheering crowds on...

I Know You Better Than You May Think

"We don't see things as they are..." No, we only think we do. But in reality, "...we see things as we are." ~ Anaïs Nin Blogit is such a unique place. I knew the moment that I found it that I was destined to pore out my heart and soul in written words...not because my words, my opinions, my... Sign in to see full entry.

It Is Time For Something

The first day of August began twelve minutes ago. About that time in 1962 I welcomed our second child, a tiny baby boy. Now his hair is turning grey, he is expecting a grandchild, and he cradles a C-Pap at night so that he can sleep. Memories, how they linger--how they ever flood my soul....little...

Night Life

For very good reason indeed, a group of skunks is called a surfeit. The spray of one skunk has a range of up to 10 feet, and its odor can be detected up to 1.5 miles in any direction. It is not necessary to see a skunk to know it has been startled by something or someone. Our nights have been so... Sign in to see full entry.

A Woman's Journal Of The Latter Years (Page 2)

July 29, 2003 As usual, I am working on my birthday. In the nursing profession, one is always needed--the only days off one can count on are your scheduled days off, and even then they always try calling you to come in. Time and a half for overtime is not very appealing to one who has reached the... Sign in to see full entry.
