I'm a mess...I really am!

And so is my plate of food. Just the other day, I shared with you about my terribly annoying habit of eating so slowly. And now, here’s a perspective from a dear friend who was, in fact, with hubby and me during a meal at a restaurant.…

"May I take that out of you way?"

I hate when the waitress asks that question. That means those with whom we’re having dinner have finished their meals, and it’s a sign for me to hurry. Tough to do because chances are I’m still munching away and have half plate-full in front of me.…

Guilty or not guilty?

As a court Spanish interpreter, I’ve interpreted that question countless times. But no matter how convincing the evidence echoes through the courtroom, or how stern the judge’s reading of the charges, you never know what the response will be.…

Sometimes, we just plain forget.

What happened to hubby’s cheery self? The songs he hums as he goes about doing tasks around the house? And his words of endearment toward me?

Hubby lost all that these last few days.…

Hit the road jack...

And don’t you come back no more, no more, no more, no more…hit the road…

Can anybody finish those lyrics?…

Blushing because I was caught...

Okay, some of you have friends like these: diligent like royal guards, detailed like FBI agents, and giving like Mother Theresa herself.

Well, it was some of these kinds of friends who look after me who pointed out something quite embarrassing. I had sent cards and the…

The Warm Fuzzy Feelings of Christmas

As I thought about Christmas recently, I realized all those warm fuzzy feelings we experience at this very special time of year come from BEFORE the big day.

It’s the hustle and bustle, it’s the sweet Merry Christmases said to you by complete…

Christmas gatherings, where do they go wrong?

Some are wonderful events with love floating in the air. Others are stuffy with tension. We all have those relatives that make the difference - some cranky, others crass, crude, and yet some cool with kind comments. And how about those with crafty loaded with crazy ideas?…

How does a blind person find things?

Simple. As part of my way of doing things, I’ve developed methods that work so well I don’t even notice them as being different from those days when I had sight.…

Sex, Gloom, and Hopelessness

And desperately needing the Christ in Christmas. I wanted to share this in case you know any “Phil’s” whom you might reach out to this Christmas.

Do what happens when hubby doesn't take the hint?

So what happens when hubby doesn’t take the hint?

Most of the time it’s my fault. And you’d think I’ve learned by now. Nope. My hubby has been doing so well in taking care of his health. He lost 55 lb. So proud of him!…

Some shades of green look hideous on me...

An honest friend told me that (maybe not exactly in those words) since I have an olive complexion, any shade of green with yellow in it looks, well, not so good on me. How can I argue? Without eyes, I take my friend’s advice.

But here’s another insight that could make my…

Company in my bathtub...

Not a pleasant one, I might add. Like most of you, Sundays are dedicated to the Lord, the family, and friends. Sometimes, I indulge in a spa treatment including a mint aroma detox bath.

I told hubby about my plan. Moments later he called out from the bathroom. “Don’t get…

SCUBA for the blind?

SCUBA for the blind?

Hmm…maybe not. A friend, with gusto and enthusiasm, invited my hubby and me to, of all things, a SCUBA experience. I chuckled. And he quickly realized that might not be a lot of fun for a blind person.…

Gag over sillyl stuff...

Gaga over silly stuff…

That’s me, the new grandmother going gaga over every little whimper our new granddaughter makes. As I shared with you, this new stage of life brings out the nutty reactions I’d apparently stored in my heart. Guess they were reserved just for such times as when I hold that warm little body in my arms. And she'll be at the top of my…

Friends can put you to shame...

Yes, they can, real shame, the dirt-eatin’ kind. But it’s not bad, in fact it’s good. When my dear friend, Cindi, sent me what she wrote, I made a screeching halt, shopping cart and all.

I stopped to re-think my values, re-organize my priorities, and re-evaluate my…

The freedom I found in the flu...

There I was, feeling sorry for myself. Tissue in hand, Niagara nostrils, aches and pain, chills. But the worse was the boo hoo feeling that hovered over me.

Then I opened an email…

Somewhere over the "lane-row"...

So what happens when you lose your car in a sea of vehicles spread over a parking lot? Let me tell you what a friend did this past weekend.

She exited the arena after attending the Women of Faith conference (18,000 women exiting at…
