I am not ready…

I am not ready. Not ready for a slew of things. Whether it’s getting up, showered, and dressed (good ole depression) or heading into work sitting in traffic and actually working. I am not ready to get older or for my kids to grow up (more). Im not ready to have relationships change even for… Continue reading I am not ready…

The Little Things

This morning I sat quietly on the couch sipping coffee.  I sat next to my spouse and we didn’t say a word.  In place of our voices was the sound of birds chirping.  It was a beautiful, harmonious orchestra of sound.  I (for once) did not feel the need to talk, or chatter, babbling away… Continue reading The Little Things

It won’t always be like this

REPOST: With all that is happening in the word, in my life, within the four walls of my home, I felt the desire to repost this blog entry.  It has been on my mind a lot lately and I feel the need to put it back out there.   There is a newer song on… Continue reading It won’t always be like this

Face masks and more

Last night, I FaceTimed with my parents, which is great, but it’s not the same as being with them in person.  One may think our separation is due to COVID-19, and that has a part to do with it.  Another part is that we live on opposite coasts.  It’s been more than 3 years since… Continue reading Face masks and more

An Apple a Day…

There’s the old adage that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, and for the life of me I am not sure if eating an apple a day ACTUALLY keeps a doctor away.  I used to eat apples, but they never kept the doctor away, so I gave up because you know I am… Continue reading An Apple a Day…

The Gifts We Receive

The end of July signifies the ending of summer, although where I reside, I will have another two months of heat and summer like weather and temperatures.  The beginning of August is a wonderful transition to a new month, a step closer to the fall, and a break in the weather and cooler days.  August… Continue reading The Gifts We Receive

Bella’s Babbles Friday Edition 05/17/2019

It feels like it has been a journey this week to get to Friday.  Each day of the week, I have been in a different place mentally and emotionally leading to an extremely exhausting week.  I am beyond relieved that the week is at its closure so I can decompress and prepare for a new… Continue reading Bella’s Babbles Friday Edition 05/17/2019
