We clap hands and welcome the Peace of Christmas. We beckon the good season to wait a while with us. We, Baptist and Buddhist, Methodist and Muslim, say come. Peace. Come and fill us and our world with your majesty. We, the Jew and the Jainist, the Catholic and the Confucian, implore you to stay … Continue reading Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
***Updated since yesterday's original post*** The weather has been a bit wonky here, and I spent much of yesterday fighting with my WiFi. I finally gave up and uploaded pics from the mobile WordPress app on my phone and called it a night. Now I'm having trouble editing (reducing the size) of the pictures. Anyway, … Continue reading A Snippet of Joy – #WGWW
What's going well for you today?
Seriously, you guys, I was excited to post this week since I missed last week, but I'm all mixed up (obviously!!!) and realized this morning that . . . today is actually Thursday. Here is my disclaimer: A LOT is going well, but other things not so much -- for instance, Wallace was the first … Continue reading What’s Going Well. . . Wait! What Day is It?!
Happy Wednesday, friends. It's good that I'm doing this because I sincerely need to focus on the positive... I'll leave it at that.

And sometimes I get a clear shot, but unfortunately not as often as I'd like. Gil takes great shots of objects -- buildings, architecture, … Continue reading Capturing Action
I take lots of pictures. Notice I did not say, I'm a photographer. When my oldest son was born, Gil and I had a decent digital camera. It was a Fuji, point and shoot, and it was fine for my limited technical knowledge. I found the baby phase a little tedious. Obviously I adored my … Continue reading I’m On a Mission

I took this photo over Easter weekend and it makes me smile every time I see it. I can't begin to describe the … Continue reading His Happy Place
It's been a rough few days, y'all. So today we did what we do when we're not sure how to make sense of this big, beautiful, tragic life. We went to the beach. It didn't make everything okay, but I feel like I can face the world now. I'm looking forward to summer and lots … Continue reading Happy Easter!
And....more about this later. Happy Monday!
