On a Tangent

When my mom’s friend comes over, she is always prepared with news and topics for conversation. Usually we go off on tangents during our visits. I look things up on the internet and we confirm facts or learn new things. Today she talked about a book she was reading that was historical fiction. It included […]

Finally Shen Yun

Three years ago my sister and I purchased tickets for Shen Yun. It was cancelled due to COVID-19. For the past three years, we have been trying to reschedule the tickets to no avail. There was always something that would deter us from going. Earlier this week, my sister told me the show was coming […]

Dog Fun

Tonight we took care of my son’s dog for the evening while he went out and about. She’s so soft and furry to pet, which of course she loved. We had fun watching her antics as she pulled out the toys she wanted. She found a tennis ball and we tried to play catch. When […]


Since it was St Patrick’s Day today, after my mom got dressed in her green attire, she went through her song books and played Irish songs on the piano. I loved listening to her play. For my part, I spent the majority of the day in the kitchen. I made Guinness beef stew and two […]

Pulling Back the Curtain

It is easy for me to get caught up in the things that aren’t going well in my life and the lives of my loved ones. Not to mention the seemingly degradation of the world. In this morning’s meditation, Jeff Cavins said if we were to pull back the curtain between us and the spiritual […]

Importance of Prayer Time

I listened to a reflection this morning on the importance of prayer time. They said that the more we pray, the more we know God and His love for us. The more we know God, the less we are distracted by the happenings around us. We chase the things that we think will make us […]

Both the Birds

For the last couple of days, we have been watching one hawk bringing sticks into the nest. Today we saw both the birds together. They were very busy this morning and we watched them for about 2 hours before they left for the day. They took turns breaking sticks and twigs off the neighboring leafless […]

News of Healing

I talked with my friend yesterday whose tiny, elderly mother is going through cancer treatment. She is doing amazingly well. She can tell the treatments have been effective so far by how she’s feeling. My friend said she has even had more energy than she has had in months and doesn’t have to use the […]

Beautiful Gestures

A friend of mine told me about some ways she is honoring loved ones. A friend of her’s mother passed away. Several months later, her friend contacted her and asked if she would like some of the religious items that the mom had accumulated. She gratefully accepted. One of the items was a statue of […]

New Car

My mom and I have been talking about getting a new car for months. We have been looking for something that is easier for my mom to get in and out of, one that will hold wheelchair and walker, and would be good to take to the cabin. After much research and discussion, we decided […]
