Better Choices, or, Better to Have Choices

Today, I’m grateful for CHOICES. One of my blogging buddies, Deb, has a daily grateful post. It’s encouraging to read all she is grateful for, and while I don’t plan to copy her idea on a daily basis, today I’m saying, loud and clear, I’m grateful for all the choices I have in my life.

Everything in its Time…

…but I hope that time is soon. I’ve written about one of my best friends here in the past before.

That First Magic Step

I could use a little disruption in my life to change my focus, if only for a moment. Enough of a spark to take my mind off of that which usually occupies my thinking. It might open me up to a refreshing change in my life. It’s scary, and exciting, to think we could work to make our dreams come true. Scary, because we … Read More That First Magic Step

Facing the Fire

One of my best friends’ heart is breaking this week. Her younger brother is dying of cancer; he may be gone by the time you read this. He was diagnosed several years ago and immediately went in for surgery. After the surgery, he developed an infection, which prevented him from getting chemotherapy in a timely manner. Despite that, once he did receive that treatment … Read More Facing the Fire
