How much is a Good Hair Day worth?

How much is a good hair day worth?  My new habits of thrift are refining (though doubtless will never catch up to my favorite DIL).  Clue: The granddaughter who is always warm doesn’t take off her hooded jacket.  (bad hair day) Clue: I spend…

Shopping without credit

Yep. I went shopping, had no credit card, and survived 🙂 That may sound so silly to someone who has never had the dependence or habit I had with shopping.  It used to ‘perk me up’ if I was down, to get a new…

More than I asked for…

I visited my Mom to day in the nursing home.  Got a lot of work done, replacing clothing, cleaning closet and drawers, etc. Brought her a few bits of bling for Valentine’s day including one fun piece of costume jewelry– a stretch ring with…

Antidote for shopping

I got an invitation in the mail today.  I was invited to audition for a play at Racine’s Theater Guild.  First thought:  how sweet of them to think of me… Second thought – wait a minute – this is a play about a handful…

Here I am Lord…

I first heard the song by this name half-a-dozen years ago in Michigan.  The first line in the chorus seemed based on the story of Samuel –Hannah’s child she had dedicated to the Lord’s service. (scripture below) I’d located a recording of the song…

Pressure Reliever

I am an achiever.  I like to accomplish things and get frustrated if my list is not complete, or if a goal gets interrupted.  I have lists of lists to check off so each day I can see what I have completed.  Achieving is…

Before you buy the ticket, know the ultimate destination.

Doesn’t that just describe to a “T” the spontaneous,  emotional decisions that got so much of the world in debt or overweight! I know I’ve been there. A couple of days ago I thought man, I’m halfway through the first month of living without…

Let Him Lead…

This might be the closest I’ve come to learning to let Ken lead…and come to think of it, Ken was learning to let me let him – lead I mean. He was only there – private dance lessons, due to a Christmas gift with…

Lifeline

A recent medical review required a stress lifeline.  This involved drawing a line representing my life, then marking  peaks and valleys of good and bad stress in my life.  Abuse, graduation, marriage, car accident, birth of children, miscarriage, etc.  It is amazing to then…
