Peace and Quiet

Hard to do, huh? Finding that calm place when our minds churn out to-do lists is almost impossible. I wake up with plans in my head everyday. It might not be big plans, but I want to move forward. I don't like leaving things undone. But sometimes life dishes out a storm in our lives big enough that can't be cleaned up and put away in a few days.

If you are one of the lucky ones this morning, with a roof over your head and a cup of hot coffee in your hand... you can count yourself blessed beyond measure. Hug your kids, kiss your husband and plan something delicious for dessert tonight. This is that special day you've been waiting for...

  2. Life does indeed dish it out sometimes. Getting quiet and staying in the moment is so necessary...but sometimes so hard. Too bad we don't have a pause button for the racing mind, huh!
    Take care,

  4. I have that card!

    I know if must be difficult to be so close to that devastation. It hurts me and I'm oh, so many miles away. I'll keep them, and you, in my prayers.

  6. A great truth.
    We are blessed in so many ways that we don't think about until they're removed. I WANT to be thankful and present for each moment. Thanks for the reminder.
