So, funny to me are the things from the past that in some ways have helped prepare me for this time in my life.Continue reading Implementing Life’s Lessons
I have been reading, talking through text (social distancing) and processing much of what is happening in the world lately with all its brought into our lives globally. Several conversations have been about different aspects of all that is going on worldwide. In the earlier days of things getting real in my world (Boquete, Panama,) I was thankful that no matter the inconvenience, the priority was keeping people safe and healthy. I still am very grateful for the measures to protect us here.Continue reading In Times Like These
Have you ever said or wrote something and it’s like a light bulb just came on in your head, and all a sudden, you see things just a little clearer? Or maybe all of a sudden, you understand the whole picture and not only the pieces you’ve been collecting in your thoughts and conversations.Continue reading Proactive Inconveniences Are Saving Lives
So for the last few months I’ve been doing some work online. Things I’m not super comfortable or familiar with doing, but doing well at them nonetheless, for the most part.Continue reading I am not a tech geek, or am I?
So today was Sunday, meaning Al and I enjoying a relaxing morning together. We both had chores to do before the day was done.

I remember when the first computer came into our home. Al and I were only married a couple of years, although we had already had two kids. My son was an infant, meaning this was about 24 years ago. When the first (to me) computer was in our home, I found it fascinating, although I had red flags and concerns from day one. I saw the amount of money and time it occupied in our young lives. I wasn’t comfortable with it, but there was no going back.Continue reading Let’s Talk Tech
After hanging with my sister to go see mom (we were trapped in the car for 3 hours) I picked up the granddaughters to come for a couple of overnights at the apartment we’re staying in. Well, they asked for a snack before we left the driveway.Continue reading Slow Your Roll, Baby!
Recently I had 2 different conversations that I’ve been thinking about for the last several days. The first one was about my use of the word home. I explained I was going home for the Christmas holidays. A friend said, “Interesting you call that home.” Well, I guess so if home is a location. To me home is where I feel comfortable, loved and safe. Home for me is with people I care about. Whether I’m in the USA with my blood family or in Boquete, Republic of Panama, with my friends that have become the family I chose, I feel at home.Continue reading My Heart is at Home
I’m taking some time to process and sort the feelings that can be overwhelming and the thoughts that can be heartbreaking when faced with a tragedy. I do that best through words, although not always spoken words for everyone to hear. But, written words that may never be read.Continue reading And Then There Was One
