I Love Walking

My favorite time to walk is early in the morning, before the sun is up. We live very near a park so that is my destination each work day. The quiet is awesome. The sounds equally awesome... [more]

    Life can overwhelm can't it?  I should rephrase:  the devil sneaks in to overwhelm us but if we are still and listen in awareness for God's work and presence...the storm will calm. Assuredly it will calm.  I get myself so worried and worked up about my daughters that before I know it .... I am ineffective and paralized with the storm and lose sight of the calm. God is present in it all.  Last week I sat with a dear friend while they received chemo. Today I am reminded that in that quiet time God comforted my friend and I and we enjoyed 4 hours of just quiet talking...listening...praying about this journey. The same is true today...received a phone call from my daughter who is addicted to dru… [more]

  • Love, despair, healing and care...oh and weird EP stuff

    Posted on: June 8th, 2012 at 5:23PM

    So if I could turn back time (name the artist and the outfit she was wearing when she sang it- whoever answers gets a cookie) and re-do yesterday I would, without a doubt.  Yesterday, and today, for that matter, started out as any other normal great day but then.....well, I am sure the earth shifted on its axis or something.  Yesterday, my daughter who is struggling with addiction hit a hard patch and was asked to leave the place she was staying because she stole from them.  Her dad and I are trying to walk alongside her..doing the best we can to listen, support, but not enable.  I think she has hit her bottom....dad is not so sure.  The love I feel for her feels like a desperate love becaus… [more]

  • Life - embrace it...the good, the bad and the ugly

    Posted on: August 10th, 2012 at 11:27PM

    The last several weeks have had all of the above for me....for all of us I am sure!  But  I can only share what I feel about my experiences the last few weeks.  Many, many weeks ago I let my husband know about this website and the things I was sharing to try and just communicate, share and get to know folks.  He did not approve and still does not and I respect that.  No more sharing things of a personal nature about my marriage.  I am sharing on this blog today with his permission and just because I loved this part of EP --- the blogging.  iam sure I could find some other source for Blogging such as blog spot but strangely, I feel so comfortable here....any way...I digress.  Life is coming f… [more]

  • The Tuesday that wasn't.... TMI alert

    Posted on: June 13th, 2012 at 1:45PM

    So, yesterday was a total cluster -you-know-what.  I went from feeling great to falling into bed at 4:30 in the afternoon and sleeping through to the morning today with a bladder infection.  Hey girls- you know what I am talking about right?  Double Boo. I messed up a couple of client dealings yesterday because all I could think about was the burning in my nether regions....  I think stress manifests itself in very real ways in my body.  Actually, I know it does.  I am quite convinced my boob cooked up a case of cancer a few years back - it was a terribly stressful time for my family and for me professionally.  ANYWAY.....on to the glorious today I have decided to embrace and be grateful for… [more]
