At church this past week, a woman (whom I haven't seen for many months) gave me a potroast and said "The store was having a sale on potroasts, I bought a few, and I want you to have one." Ladyhawk once told me about a toll road near where she used…Continue
'Little by little, the bird makes its nest.' 'If you don't like the path you're traveling, start paving another." We all need hope-almost crave it. It helps us in our everyday lives, in our mundane tasks or the big lifechanges. I wish to share these…Continue
I accumulated many quotes of hope while living in the shelter (from various sources) and I invite you to read them whenever you need a lift. Please add any of your own. "No one else can do what you have been created to do. You are unique, valuable…Continue
There are incalculable resources in the human spirit, once it has been set free.In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me lay an invincible summer.

If you know me, you know that's true. I LOVE to talk! And I love talking to other members or interacting with them in other ways, including reading blogs or viewing photos. So I invite you (I don't want to use the words 'I challenge you') to say 'hi' to someone new every day, read and like a blog,…Continue

I have included a website so we can see how various phases developed into the hugely international commemoration of Earth Day.…Continue
At Christmas time and during the holidays, there is a lot of talk about family. But what is family? This can be a sad time of year for some people and thinking outside the box may help. Do people need to be related by blood to be family? I have two 'daughters' not related by blood but they've been friends with my other daughters for 7 years or more. (I even gave a birthday present this year to one of these girls "from your other mom".) I also have a church family, some of whom have…Continue
