I Wish You Beauty, Peace and Happiness


I know I’ve been quiet lately.  Life just seems to get in the way at times.  I’m good!  Things are going well for me.  I’m still going to work.  I’m blessed and grateful that I have a job when so many at this time do not.  I’m behaving myself and staying isolated.  I wear a mask, I social distance, I order my groceries online and have them delivered.

I stayed home on Thanksgiving.  I cooked a full meal; turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, gravy and rolls.  I even had brownies for dessert!  I haven’t cooked this much in ages!  I’ll have leftovers for a long time!  My little dog, Rocket, Loves turkey!  I am truly blessed to have the bounty of food that I have!

I’m an introvert and spend a great deal of time alone.  So I don’t think being isolated during COVID has effected me the way that it might others.  I do think that in some ways, being isolated has been a blessing.

This time has been a time of introspection for me.  It’s been a time to count my blessings.  There are times when we are our own worst enemy.   I don’t know if it’s human nature, but so many of us tend to see the negative during a time like we are going through right now.  I know it’s a hard time.  I really do.

I think that each of us needs to dig down deep within ourselves and see the good around us; to see the positive; to count our blessings.

I’m not saying that I’m immune to a case of the blues, or a case of “poor me”.  I do it too.  But staying in that state of mind does nothing for you except bring you down.  Let’s do our best to lift ourselves up and lift each other up!

Today is a gift!  That’s why it’s call the Present.  Let’s make the most of it!

I wish each and every one of you a day of beauty, peace and happiness.

This Moment


the stars provide
an endless canopy

a soft breeze 
floats 
through the fragrant grasses

cooling our fervor

your shoulder 
is my pillow 

your heartbeat 
my lullaby

we disclose our future 
to the moon 
and he shares his light with us

after 
we slumber 
wrapped in an embrace

tomorrow 
will bring the sunrise 
and with it 
a new beginning

but tonight 
we have this moment

Thank a Veteran


These men and women of yesterday and today, willingly gave up their comfortable beds, so that we may sleep safe and secure in ours tonight. They are out there in the rain and the mud or the cold or the terrible heat, to be sure that our families have the right and the freedom to enjoy this holiday.

There are men women that are doing what most of us don’t want to think about. Things that are necessary to insure your safety and mine.

So hug your family tight and say a prayer for all veterans that have done what was needed in order to defending our freedom.

Thank a vet.
