Beauty in Confusion

The weather here has been so warm for such a long time. We were surprised the other day when we saw that one of the irises had a long budding stem on it. However, it was supposed to freeze that night. So we decided to cut it off and bring it in the house. We […]

Pep Talk

My dad had an appointment with his neurologist today. The doctor talked with him, watched him walk, and asked me some questions. Even though my dad struggles with his short term memory, the doctor said that he looks really good. He said he understands that it is frustrating for my dad, but reassured him that […]

Yes He Cares

When I was out and about today, I passed a large wooden fence that faced the street. It had words written in different colors of chalk that read, “Yes, He Cares.” My heart welled up. Message received. I Found God today in a simple, profound message.

Mid Pandemic Quarantine Surprise

We got a “mid-pandemic-quarantine” surprise package from my brother yesterday. It was a blu-ray player and some movies. My dad and I worked on getting it set up today. When we came to the place where we weren’t sure what to do next, my dad called my brother on Facetime. He was able to walk […]

Girls Nail Party

Today was girls day. A few months ago, my daughter in law hosted a party where you could purchase Color Street press on nail polish. I bought a few sets and planned on getting together with my sisters to put them on. Since then, there has been a lot going on. One sister was getting […]

House Hunting

My sister came to visit for a couple days. She had an eye doctor appointment in this city today and thought it would be nice to enjoy some extra time here. It was perfect timing as my son has started to look for houses to buy. Because my sister was here, I was able to […]

Unexpected Compliment

Before I went out and about today, I decided to put on a little eyeliner and fix my hair up nice. I have several face masks that my friend has made and always like to wear things that match. Today it was the fall leaves look with my orange long sleeve t-shirt. I thought it […]

Purposeful Morning

I got up way too early this morning. But instead of trying to go back to sleep, I just started my day. I started with prayer. For almost an hour I prayed the rosary, the office, read today’s Mass readings and watched a meditation. I saw the glow of the sunrise through my window and […]

Infinity and Beyond

We flipped through tv channels tonight and came across the new Cosmos series. I was surprised that my dad had not seen any of the new program. We found that we could start watching series 1 episode 1, which we did. My dad remembered the original Cosmos series by Carl Sagan in 1980. He taught […]

Aware of Angels

In my Bible class tonight, we read the book of Tobit. It is a beautiful story of 2 people who were going through very difficult times. They remained faithful and both cried out to God in prayer at the same time. God heard them and sent Raphael the archangel who helped and healed them. After […]
