Patience Is Hard

Last Friday’s Six Word Friday used the word “patience”, something I struggle with: Patience is hard, but I’m trying. I am not by nature a very patient person.  Our media makes everything look so easy – in 30 minutes, you can learn to cook a gourmet meal!  In 60 minutes a crime can be solved!  Casual…

Making Each Day Count

Last Friday’s Six Word Friday used the word “count”, touching on a topic I’ve been thinking about lately: Making each day count is hard. So many of my days have a gray sameness to them.  The gray, rainy (and humid) weather isn’t helping, but it isn’t just that.  With much effort, the garden got cleaned out and planted,…

Hanging Onto Joy Is Hard Sometimes

Last week’s six word Friday used the word, “over”.  For me lately, it’s: Joy is overshadowed by sloppy workmanship. My favorite boy toy and myself have been getting things done the last few months that are needing to be done.  Each step of the way, it’s been a fight.  Things that should be really nice have to be…

A Walk In November (Autumn Sounds)

This week’s Six Word Friday uses the word “sound”, something I was thinking about after my walk last weekend at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens: Autumn has more sounds than expected. I don’t know why, but I was expecting a quiet, contemplative walk around the gardens, enjoying silence and beauty.  The beauty was there, but…

Contemplating The Holidays

This week’s Six Word Friday uses the word “escape” – Sighs escape when contemplating the holidays. The months continue to fly by.  Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only two weeks away?  And Christmas five weeks after? In July, I jotted down a few ideas of changes for the holidays after I’d read an article in the Wall…

Magic Shower Water

This week’s Six Word Friday uses the word “captive” and comes courtesy of the beagle, who wants to tell his side of what really happened when he yelled out: HELP!!!!!!  I’m captive in the shower!!!!!!!! Dear Kind and Gentle Readers – TELL MOM TO GET OFF MY CASE!  Sheesh.  You wouldn’t believe what she did…

Bring It On!

Thank you everyone for the kind comments from my post the other day.  I’m still digesting your advice and support.  Most likely I will post about it next week. This week’s theme for Six Word Friday is “bring”.  Oh yes, one of my favorite statements, but with a caveat: Bring it on – use with…

Sometimes The Grass Is Greener

Today’s theme for Six Word Friday is “over” and what popped into my head was: Sometimes grass IS greener over there. Now I’m not saying that I want to spend my time envying what others have or being ungrateful for what I have myself.  That is a surefire way to make myself miserable and reaching…

Gift in Wind, Water, White

Monday’s March Joy Dare was to find a gift in wind, in water and in white.  I have to be attentive to the present moment to find God’s presence in gifts as diverse as this.  And I did! Sunday, I took a long walk at the woods with dog #1.  It was cool and only a moderate…
