A Fresh Start

Well, 2021 came and went!  Another year is in the books.  I can’t believe it’s already 2022!  With a new year comes those “new goals” we call resolutions.  How many of you make New Year’s resolutions every year?  Most of us do.  You might make ones like:  eating healthier, exercising more, reading more, etc.  I...

Have you ever had a plan go awry from the first step? What did it teach you? Three days remained in a 31 day writing challenge. I was not where I wanted to be. I usually do not sign up for this sort of thing because I often take them too seriously, and if I...

The Tale of Two Trees

Unopened Gifts Under the Tree

Have you ever looked under the tree and wished for just one more gift?  Did you ever find one and reach for it only to find it wasn’t for you after all? Did you ever find a gift under the tree that wasn’t labeled and wonder who it was for? You pick it up…shake it…seeing if that...
