Weekly Topic

A new blog will be posted weekly.  My intent is to offer you hope and encouragement in happiness and during life’s struggles.  Life is so short and so precious.  I wish you love, happiness and prosperity every moment of everyday.


Finding Resolution:

Answers will come streaming in when you try to resolve an easy issue.  The bigger the issue, the answer gets a little more complex.  Sure, if we’re trying to lose weight or quit smoking we have a lot of options at our finger tips.  But, if we’re trying to find an end to homelessness, fight hunger or help those in need with mental issues, it is not that easy.  There are too many factors, too many scenarios.  But the fact that there are basic needs that aren’t being met is very scary and inhumane.

We, as a society, love our fur babies.  I have two dogs which I love, but I would never place the importance of my dog’s life before another human beings life.  There are more humane shelters than there are Domestic Violence shelters.  This is so sad and something I would love to see changed during my lifetime.

Can these issues be resolved?  Yes, I do believe they can be. You see, most places that help those in need are the Salvation Army, Churches and Food Pantry’s.  Most people get upset when their taxes get raised, where does that money go?  One place I know they go is in our prison system.  It is sad at this day and age when a person who has committed no crime has to go without food, warmth and medications, yet those who have committed heinous crimes are able to sleep in warmth, get their medications and not go hungry.  This absolutely makes no sense to me.


The Verge

The verge is about the single deciding moment that may change your life forever.  The verge is about how strong you are to make it through that deciding moment.

We all have moments of weakness, we all have bursts of strength, we all have our own tests of endurance and we have all been pushed to the verge of change.  The verge is the edge, it is the deciding moment, it is the win or lose, it is strength or resolve and life or death.


A Blessing

Each time I sat down to write a new blog I was constantly interrupted.    It seemed like every 5 minutes my spoiled dogs wanted to go outside.  It also seemed like every time I sat down to relax I had to get up to pick up scattered clothes that my husband had left draped over the couches.  Or, I finally sit down to write and have lost all train of thought.  I had my title/subject that I wanted to write about but not enough hours in the day to make it happen.  It is often during the times when we are most busy that we lose track of how blessed we are.

So, as I sit here listening to my phone blowing up, I can clearly see how far we’ve been distancing ourselves from some things.  All the phone calls, text messages, email alerts, news notifications, Facebook posts and we certainly can’t forget about important Instagram pictures from friends and family, it is amazing that we can finish reading a book.



It seems like it has been ages since I sat down and wrote a blog.  There were many times that I started to write, but I felt that I didn’t have the energy to put into it to produce the quality that I wanted.

So, I sit here in utter amazement of how fast time has been able to escape me.  Let me give you a little more detail.  We purchased a small cottage on the river a few years back, it was a nice house but we had to keep our other house in case the river flooded.  So, we flooded two years ago, we moved back into our home, which we had rented out to my son.  We decided to demolish our home on the river as the damage was too extensive.  After the demolition was complete we jumped in and built our home.  My husband and I built our beautiful home.



History is a tool used to track success and failures. It is used as a tool to benchmark your future successes. You will never be able to erase history. Throughout history, Unspeakable tragedies have transpired all over the globe. Some of those things we have learned from and progressed, there are so many others that we are still learning from.

How can a runner beat his best time? He has to refer back to find out his fastest time and use that as his benchmark for future races.


Dimensions Apart

Only through love and compassion can we begin to see and understand the uniqueness in others, no matter how different they may seem or appear to be.  For everyone’s sake we need to try and understand how they think and feel, what their wants and needs are and how they express those things.

I always thought that those with special needs were so gifted.  I thought that they were not of this world but above us, closer to heaven and brought here to us for a reason.  The lesson is to teach us that there is a huge difference between the body, spirt and mind.  The lesson is to never judge.  The lesson is that love comes in many forms and many in ways.  That love doesn’t have to be spoken, and can be felt from such a long distance, but you know the love is there, you can feel it.
