Growing Up

A few years ago, my sister and her family got a new puppy. To get a sense of his size, she sent me photos with the tv remote next to him over the next few months.

This is for Becky’s January Squares. I’d actually made these squares at the time to show our Mom but rediscovered them as I was going through my archives. It’s too fun not to share.

Same remote, same dog. Just growing up!

Quiet reflection moments

Quiet reflection moments

Cemetery-1030302

When I need a quiet place just to think and reflect, I find myself drawn to the beauty and peace of a cemetery. Far from being spooky, I find them places of beautiful sculpture that I find calming. In our older cemeteries, they are filled with the names of people no one now remembers or even knew. But I know they too had their struggles, hope, dreams, and challenges. This is a reminder to me that whatever is bothering me will eventually pass. Life goes on for me, for now. And I must seize the moments I have.
