My Marriage Vs. My Mom’s Marriage

Hubs and I went to spend some time with my momma this weekend. I felt bad having to leave her on Mother's Day morning. But we live about five hours away, and our son wanted to bring his family to visit us. So, off we drove. My main consoling thought was that my two youngest …

The Blue Screen of Death Experience

Late last month, my computer at work ended up with the dreaded Blue Screen of Death. Yes, that awful sideways unhappy face. I'm not sure what is worse, the unsmiling face or the blue screen. It occurred when a Microsoft update, already flagged for having issues, slipped through our IT safety measures and updated anyway. …

Acceptance of Life Situations

So often we spend our lives searching for something else, something better, than where we are at. We work our whole lives to get to that dream in the distant future. And then, before we know it, here it is. Life has time-warped ahead, and here we are right dab in the middle of making …

Marriage: Living La Vida Loca

Marriage Is An Adventure Living the married life, for me, is a true adventure and more so lately. Hubs and I are between homes, moving from one we've been at for over nineteen years and our soon-to-be place of retirement.

To Marry Or Not To Marry

In my last blog on marriage, you might have gotten the impression that I was obsessed with getting married way back when. Far from it. I had actually pretty much given up on meeting the man of my dreams, or someone who might hold my attention for the rest of my life, by the time …

Integrity & The Little White Lie

Do you know what happens when we tell a little white lie? That is, besides the rise in blood pressure and the "looking over your shoulder" part? Is telling a little white lie as harmless as it seems? And are little white lies okay some of the time or not at all? Or does it …

Acceptance Starts With Accepting Me

I've been thinking about acceptance a lot lately. Perhaps this is due to all the reports of bias and prejudice in the news or, simply, because I know this is the topic of my blog this weekend. Either way, I have decided that, if I'm going to speak and share about acceptance, I need to …
