The Summer of my Content

It’s been close to three months since I quit working and I feel really good about the successes I’ve achieved this summer. If these accomplishments are any indication of what the rest of my years will be like, then I can look forward to a very fulfilled and satisfied life. I watched the first four…

The Beginning of the End

There is one week of preschool left and two weeks of camp after that. Do you realize what this means? It means I only have three weeks of work left. Figuring in Memorial Day as a holiday that comes to 14 more work days. FOURTEEN! I am not panicked. (I am NOT panicked. I am…

On The Road To A Great 2015

2015 is a big year with some huge milestones for me. In May I will celebrate 10 years as a cancer survivor and in November I’ll be a half a century old. My 40’s have not been at all what I had planned them to be. I’m fairly certain that if I didn’t have a…

Happy 2010!

I hope you all had a good 2009 and may 2010 be even better! (I know. Very cliche’. But I do mean it.) I’m not one to make resolutions because they always go by the wayside about the second day of January. I could maybe resolve to not do anything different this year and then…

One Month To Live

The current series at our church is based on the book One Month to Live, Thirty Days to a No-Regrets Life written by Kerry & Chris Shook of Fellowship of The Woodlands near Houston, Texas. I confess I haven’t kept up with my reading, but the title resonates with me because, well, I’ve kind of…
