Love is patient

I have written about love in the past, but it has been heavy on my heart to write about it again. I do not know where I fall on the religious spectrum.  I was raised in a Christian household and primarily in the Southern Baptist Church.  There were many good years spent at this place… Continue reading Love is patient

In a continued effort to add some variety to this blog I have been reading a bit about ways to enhance the blogging experience.  While I was reading I came across a suggestion to share about the name of your blog.  This caught my interest, and I was like, “I can do this!” Not long… Continue reading History of Bella’s Babbles Name

Day 16: Bootstrap Belle

  I would like to share with you a short story character that I created.  She is a kick ass lil’ miss, never letting anything keep her down and always being victorious at the end of the day.  She has a sparkle in her eye that lets you know that she's got it and you… Continue reading Day 16: Bootstrap Belle

Manic Babbles

I have started three blogs so far today: One blog consisted of Kacey Musgrave lyrics, another one talked about snakes sloughing off their skin.  And the third talked about anxiety being a large dark monster that is engulfing me. As I keep writing, the words are going everywhere, this way and that way, all zig… Continue reading Manic Babbles

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

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

I Love Art

I love art.  To me art is an outlet of my creativity as well as my energy. When painting, each brush stroke allows me to take a deep breath and really feel what I am doing.  To slowly emerge into the artwork and feel it deep down inside of my body. Every time I hot… Continue reading I Love Art

When there are no babbles

The below was composed yesterday, but inadvertently not posted.  Babbles HAVE returned, but slowly and not so gracefully. Yesterday I was struggling to write.  I was overcome with emotions and thoughts.  However, when it came to placing them on paper, it just wasn’t working.  I was off, just not in the right place to write. … Continue reading When there are no babbles

Bella’s Big Adventure: Perspective

The days are passing quickly.  I suspect that it is due to being so busy.  However, I feel like I am barely keeping my head above water so to speak, only getting done the bare minimum and my head is swimming with what still needs to be done before I leave for my big adventure.… Continue reading Bella’s Big Adventure: Perspective
