Trust and Respect Take Work

Trust and Respect Take Work

Lately I have been presented with trust issues; my “people” have been making choices that lead me to not trust them. This is NOT a comfortable place to be. Trust and respect are fundamental to the growth and maintenance of relationships. When we trust someone, we have confidence in their actions and can usually predict […]

New Chapter

New Chapter

Who is writing the story of your life? Is it your job, your kids, your spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend, or your finances? Maybe it’s your health or your parents? I would like to suggest that YOU write the new chapter in the story of your life. I have had thoughts such as, “I have to stay in this […]

Spring is Nature’s Way of Saying –  “Let’s Party!”

SPRING IS IN THE AIR! Spring has us thinking of fresh starts, vibrant colors, movement, and doing things differently from what we have been doing! Baby animals are born, little green or fuzzy buds show up on dead-looking branches, and tiny flowers pop up out of the ground. Neighbors come out of hibernation and talk […]

Compassion Matters

Compassion Matters

What is compassion? We use that word often… “Be compassionate – he lost his mother.” Or, “Have some compassion, she is sick.” But compassion is not about pity or simply being nice to someone.

A Horse and a Bridle with My Name on Them

A Horse and a Bridle with My Name on Them

I just got done reading a book I loved called, “Epic” by John Eldredge. Here is an excerpt from it describing memories of summers when the main character, as a youth, stayed with his grandpa on a huge farm. Every Sunday would be ‘visiting’ day. He and his grandpa would not work on the farm, […]

It’s NOW or Never

It’s NOW or Never

January is the time to get back into the routine of it all — the time to deal with frigid, and sometimes dangerous, weather for two-plus months. This doesn’t sound very appealing…unless you are willing to do it differently in 2017. They say you can teach an old dog new tricks; so I assume we […]
