Thank Goodness for Pushy People/Good Friends


You know those friends that seem to get just a little pushy with your business on occasion? Well, I’ve got one of those.  He’s pushy.  Not so much like a direct push-you-down-the-stairs kind of way.  But a sort of nagging, poke-you-in-the-ribs, gently, nudging, kind of way.

I have been feeling less than inspired these days and this friend took notice.  We have become pen pals, of a sort.  Those of you too young to know what a Pen Pal is, look it up!  It’s fun!  I’ve found that he’s a terrific listener.  🙂  With everything that is going on in this world, it’s important that we stay connected in some way, even if it cannot be in a physical way.  Thank heavens for the internet, right?  So I now have this new “connection” with someone that I haven’t had before.  It’s been nice!

In a recent correspondence, my friend said to me,  “Just Write!  Don’t worry about what you do – Just Write and you can go back later and look at it again.
Not everything is a hit – Baseball players are stars with a batting average of .300 – only 3 out of 10 at bats with a hit.”

That is a terrific way to look at it, isn’t it?

I’m starting to get that itch again to write and have written a few things here and there.  That “spark” has begun again!

So, Thank You, Dear Friend, for nudging me, poking at me and most of all for being there for me.  ❤

Masks Part 2 – They’re not Political! — Trent’s World (the Blog)


WEAR A MASK, WEAR A MASK, WEAR A MASK!!! Please see my Friend, Trent’s post here. ❤

(See Part One) (Quick edit – Most of the Republicans I know wear a mask and most of the Democrats I know wear a mask for the right reason, but there are so many out there…) A couple of weeks ago I was in a team meeting. My manager was talking about new policy for […]

As Fleeting As Time




Just a hint
a small inkling

Like a whisper
not quite heard

Or a soft scent
on the breeze

I can’t hold
or touch it

But felt it
in my chest

A glimpse 
in the blue 
of your eyes

Elusive and
wild
as trust

As fleeting
as time

Love.

The Sound of Songbirds


To listen 
to my heartbeat 
and feel my lungs 
fill with air. 

To have nothing 
I have to do 
no place 
I'm expected 
to be. 

I want to listen 
to the 
quiet. 

The noise 
of this world 
has grown  

and I cannot endure 
much more. 

I wish to listen
as the stars 
find their path 
across the sky. 

I want to watch 
the morning dew 
dissipate 
with the rise 
of the sun. 

The sound 
of songbirds 
is enough 
for me.

A Lifetime Of Thank Yous


This is not a new post.  But felt it was appropriate, considering the hardship that my BFF is going through right now.  Please read and you’ll understand why this woman is so precious to me.

Penny Wilson Writes

friends 

How do you say thank you to someone who has always been there for me?  She has been my biggest supporter, my biggest cheerleader, no matter what I wanted to do.  She always had my back.

This little woman is a ball of dynamite.  She is a true lady in every sense of the word, but will cut you down to the stumps like a she-bear protecting her young if you dare hurt anyone she loves.

She is an enigma.  She has been ill off & on most of her life.  She’s been misdiagnosed and was supposed to die several times.  But you cannot keep her down.  She powers on and has proved the doctors wrong over and over again.

The doctors did finally come up with a diagnosis, but that hasn’t stopped her.  Although her condition is degenerative, she keeps on keeping on.

Despite her hardships, which have…
