A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

Compelling Blogging Stories

We often get so busy we don't have time to read--or blog for that matter. I just joined a wonderful blog where a woman told a hair-raising about her 24-yr-old son. I don't need to grab a book. I was actually reading a story that, had it been much longer, would have left me emotionally drained. Maybe it's my mood today. Maybe I'm feeling more sensitive than usual. I don't think so. It's just that some people need to reach out and touch someone--as the saying goes--or just need to be heard. Suffice it to say, there are some very special people out there with some very real hurts--and that could easily be most of us. That blogger hasn't posted since December 2010, and I'm a little on edge, wondering what's happened since.

My suggestion is that you choose a blog to follow and check in every once in awhile. Listen to someone else's story. You might feel a kinship with the writer as well as feel the need to start your own blog in order to relieve yourself of some of the stress in your own life. Please share it with someone.

Pleasant dreams of safe days and nights for our children, of finding online friends we can relate to, of today's trials bringing tomorrow's peace...

Happy that I'm a Blogger

I agree! Sometimes when some of my favorite bloggers don't post, I wonder how they are. It's been wonderful too kind of "meet" online. Hugs to you Therese!

Thanks so much, Dora. I enjoy hearing from you, too. I do love blogging--especially if I know someone's even remotely interested!
