“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
Really. Twelve years you are gone, and I still miss talking to you. Happy Birthday Mom.
Procrastination is the thief of time.
This is posted at the Old School House in Fort Walton Beach that I toured yesterday.
I thought it was a good reminder for today.
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.
This past week was the anniversary of my Mom’s passing. It has been twelve years. I miss her.
I 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.
I also miss her with my children. I love this picture of them. Her chocolate cake, and snuggles, spoils —like every grandmother should.
This past weekend I got to spend with my girlfriends Beth and Julie. This was our fourth year getting together over the first weekend of December.
Last year, December 2016.
Lot of changes, love these women and the unconditional love they give. Love our time together as well.
Baby girl came home last night. So excited to have her home for the holiday. Missing this little one, but grateful I have the friend in the woman she has become.
Hoping to get some things decorated for Christmas while she is here. Not sure if we will get anything else accomplished -hopeful for some homework? Nah…but just being able to spend some time with her will be wonderful.

I have never been busier, much to my dismay–ha. I love that I have an opportunity to work with preschoolers and children. Loving on them is easy. Time management is harder. I have to be organized with daily activities, and events. Big events seem to come easier than the day to day tasks. I seem to lose the little things lately. Too many interruptions to maintain concentration and completion of the tasks.
Time. Hurdles. Joy.
It seems that finding joy brings many hurdles. I am trying to discern the hurdles, and joy always surprises me.
Find some joy today.
