Do you look for magic? I used to never think that magic would find its way to my doorstep. Wasn’t going to happen. Wasn’t meant to be. Not for this girl. Then, something happened and I cannot fully explain or understand it myself. Magic entered my life in many different
Well? Do you have an answer? Maybe you should ask yourself this question every morning, but maybe it is not just a question for you. Maybe I need to ask myself this question every morning also. Since I love surprises, that word alone makes it just more exciting to see
Isn’t it funny how things happen? Things that don’t really seem that significant but then set off a chain of events that become so eerily connected that you cannot ignore them? It would be impossible to do so. I think events that happened one day to KR has her attention.
My own little world used to consist of a few people. My immediate family, my not so immediate family, some co-workers, maybe an acquaintance here and there, a neighbor, etc. Not any more. My little world does not seem so little anymore. It is bigger than I can even imagine.
Many times, I do not realize or really comprehend the effects of something I say or do and how those good things can positively impact others. In fact, I probably dismiss it more than I should. I am getting better, though. I was visiting with someone Friday and although the
Yesterday, I was driving to one of my son’s football games and in the car next to me was this cute boxer sitting in the passenger seat. As I smiled repeatedly to myself, as innocent and carefree this act was, it grew into something that I needed to post here. Here
Do you sometimes feel like you are that little hamster running around inside your cage on your little plastic wheel and wondering why you are never getting anywhere? Those hamsters run around for maybe a variety of reasons: they like exercise, they like not going anywhere, their brains are not big
…is going to be difficult.” This is something from a movie that always reminds me of how things SHOULD be, not necessarily the way things ARE. This movie is centered around a character who does not like following the rules. He is surrounded by people telling him, “That is the way
I was thinking about an incident that occurred about 5 months ago that I had to learn something that someone could not teach me. I had to learn it in my own way, in my own time, and on my own. Someone forced me to do that and look deep
People always say, “Your compass points north.” I have never really understood that phrase. Why north? What is wrong with pointing east, west, or south? All of the directions are equally important, don’t you think? Sometimes, the quickest way to get to the Far East would be to head west,
Life happens so fast. I remember one of my sons saying that his present life is like a video or DVD – happening in real-time and his past are composed of snapshots of what his memory affords him. Some things we remember, others we do not because we were too young or

Sending a little card in the mail…supplying a friend with Fun Dip (it is Fun Dip Wednesday, after all)…texting a little note that says, “I am thinking about you.” I do not like being surprised…but take it all in stride when it comes my way. Don’t you have to just
Some routines are good. Other routines, not so much. My morning routine is pretty consistent…get up at 4:30am, run/walk with Rock, shower, eat breakfast, go to work, get to boys’ stuff in the evening. But we can also use those routines as a reason as to why we shouldn’t change
How many times have you done that? Stumbled your clumsy way through something, hoping and praying it would be over and your biggest worry is that you hope no one sees you? Here is the little secret…we all stumble. We all lose our balance and are just doing everything we
Seriously? Yes, it is early and I am on a roll already. Although this comment was made to me in a different context this morning, it sent me here. Again. I pose these questions not just for my benefit but really to get you think…to ignite the light…to really question
New doors keep opening and showing themselves to me. Doors I wasn’t looking for anyway. But new ideas and perspectives are showing themselves in places I have never looked and from people I never expected. Sometimes, I seriously need to just take a look around because I feel like I
