Sweet Surprise

When the doorbell rang this afternoon, I figured it was a delivery of some kind. But, as I walked to the door, I didn’t see a delivery person running away. I opened the door and there was, in fact, a real person there. It was one of our neighbors. She had in her hands a […]


It was a warmish sunny day today and I was happy to be able to get out. A friend of mine was suffering with shingles at the same time I had COVID. We both were feeling better, so I went to her house for lunch. It was wonderful to catch up. We shared our struggles […]

Hospital Blessings

A friend’s mother is in the hospital awaiting a biopsy on a mass the doctors found. Today a woman prayed over her mom. And when my friend arrived to see her today, a priest came in for a visit. He anointed her mom and they were both able to receive Holy Communion. It gave them […]

Paying Attention

A friend came over for a little while today. She talked about the blessings she has experienced lately and how overwhelming it can be if she thinks about them too much. We talked about how God is always present and active in our world, but specifically in our lives. The important thing is that we […]

Back At It

My mom’s friend came over today after weeks of not visiting. My mom wore the fancy music lounge pants that she got for Christmas. After a couple practice rounds, they played the Christmas songs. I loved it. It was so good to have a friend over and to hear them play together again. I Found […]

God Said Rest

It was a beautiful sunny day today, so mom and I sat outside for a while determined to get some of that healing vitamin D. After a few minutes, our neighbor came out to his porch too. He has a bad respiratory infection and had the same idea of getting good air and sunshine. We […]

Dog Hero

A couple of weeks ago, my friend’s mother had to be taken to the hospital. My friend lives with her mom and said she knew there was something the matter by the way her dog was behaving. He usually sleeps in my friend’s room in the lower level of the house, while her mother is […]

Checking Mail

Today I decided I had enough energy to start going through the mail. It had been at least 2 weeks since we had been through it and there was quite a pile. We took our time and handled each piece as needed. There were several Christmas cards and it was nice to read notes from […]

Angels Among Us

A friend of mine’s mother was taken to the Emergency Room last night with difficulty breathing. She asked everyone for prayers. Of course she was pretty scared. Later in the day, her mom was doing better as she responded to the treatment she was given. My friend was thanking God and everyone for their prayers. […]

Keeping Connections

Tonight I went to a friend’s house for dinner with people I have known for about 30 years. As usual there was catching up and a lot of laughter. One of the ladies contacted a couple of others who lived far away so we could all wish Merry Christmas. She is one who makes sure […]
