A reader recently sent an email about finding my blogs through a Search Engine (probably Google or Yahoo). She said some nice things about the blogs and shared her
, and some other writing she’s done. blog She’s an author who’s self-published her first book!
Isn’t it amazing how the Internet connects people?
Joy of Living is one of the most elusive of all . endowments
Why? Just watch a child and you’ll find your answer. Having a child (9-year old boy) in our home is a daily reminder.
We all, at least I do, need daily reminders of this simple fact, don’t we? Why? Because life is hard, especially in today’s challenging and uncertain world.
Every day is an opportunity to count our blessings. Anyone need a calculator?
A lifetime of learned behaviors. Life is hard. And mostly difficult. And busy. And distracting.
Some days, maybe while watching a movie or TV show, we see a Family that seems to have it all together and wonder why we can’t live like that.
It’s a movie, okay? It’s not real. Yet perhaps there’s some compromise between what’s portrayed in books and movies, and what is our current reality.

Failing? Probably. It weighs heavy on my soul and heart. I’d really like to be a better:
Yet after decades of learned behavior, there’s a struggle deep down inside that seems overwhelming.
Overwhelming, yes. Impossible, no.
The people involved in this are going to have to want this too. It takes two. This is not a one-sided challenge, nor a one-sided opportunity. Is it me, or is that ticking sound the clock?
Stuck? Sort of. A lot has happened this past week. Some incredibly awesome stuff. Some horrific stuff.
I work hard to focus on the positive side, without sacrificing what the horrible stuff is telling me.

So what is surfacing as I type this (and I trusted something would), is that we all have a choice to make.
In fact we have lots of choices. Each day. All day. Everyday.
It takes practice and discipline to increase our “batting average”.
Make today a great day. Go in there swinging and keep your eye on the ball.
