If you’ve seen any news lately, you might have noticed stirrings and unrest in the United States. It gives a whole new meaning to the term, “ugly American”. Perhaps, it’s not new for generations past, but for those of us alive today, I feel we’re on uncharted territory. It’s not apocalyptic ― but this type of collective unrest is a new unknown ― a wake-up call.

A New Year – Poems, Prayers and Promises

It’s almost a New Year and I can sense so many changes on the horizon not only in our world but in me, my home and my family.

Life gets crazy sometimes and it’s hard to make sense of what’s up or down. There are so many distractions, news stories and bits of information coming at me from all sides, I hardly know what to place my attention on or believe. But then, I remember a song and it settles me and puts everything back on track.

Life is what I make it and it starts from the inside and flows out. If I can remember that in this New Year, it will be okay.

God bless you and . . .

Happy New Year!

There’s so much I’ve learned in the journey. I could write a book, I suppose. But words only seem to lock in the experiences and end. I want them to continue to live and change like what I feel I’m doing, as long as I can. Continue reading
