This is making the rounds on social media. This hits hard, for me anyway.

How will you finish this decade?

“It’s funny, isn’t it? when we think we have all the time in the world to live, we forget to indulge the experiences of living.  When that choice is yanked away from us, that’s when we scramble to feel.” – Fatima Ali

Live…every moment.

Love and blessings.

Sunday Thought

“If you would make a man happy, do not add to his possessions but subtract from the sum of his desires.” – unknown

My desires aren’t of stuff…it is of time.  Time spent with family and friends.  I want more time, but who doesn’t?

“Energy and time are precious, limited entities.  Therefore, you need to use them wisely, focusing on what is truly important.  As you walk close to Me, saturating your mind with Scripture, I will show you how to spend your time and energy.  My word is a lamp to your feet; My Presence is a Light for your Path.” Psalm 119:105–Jesus is Calling

Good friends are like stars…you don’t always see them, but you know they are always there.

Loved spending time with precious friends this past weekend.  I was tired, and didn’t really want to go.  It was so good just to spend time with no judgement, and some laughter.

Sunday Thought

This past week was the anniversary of my Mom’s passing.  It has been twelve years.  I miss her.

23744_10200223922311812_103019769_nI had a work trip in Tallahassee, and it went very well.  I so wanted to call her and tell her everything that happened.  Instead I rambled to Carmen and David, and they listened, laughed, and responded like I hope they would.  Mom would have done the same thing, but…

I miss her stroking my hair.  I would travel home for a visit, plop in front of her and her lazy-boy chair, and she would just begin stroking my hair.  It was relaxing, calming, and re-assuring.  Something so simple could mean so much.

Carmen, Oma, Stephen July 2002-1I also miss her with my children.  I love this picture of them.  Her chocolate cake, and snuggles, spoils —like every grandmother should.

Last year, December 2016.

Lot of changes, love these women and the unconditional love they give.  Love our time together as well.
