From Sandy Shores to City Sidewalks ~ Finding Peace in the Moments

Walking barefoot along the sandy shores of a beautiful ocean is one of my  favorite things in all the world to do.  This year I had an unusual gift of being able to do that for 14 plus days in a row.  Life-giving!

Longing for a Perfect World

I broke something the other night.  My peace shattered. You see, it seems I notice everything and with that, I'm laser-focused on anything that might be remotely harmful to anyone.  Our grands are coming in next week and a broken glass episode is one of my worst nightmares.  Well, actually, I have several but this… Continue reading Longing for a Perfect World
