    "Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory" ~ Dr. Suess
     
    Funny how a noise wedges into my thoughts like a vise and pries open a memory. Just the other day I heard a man whistling while walking outside, and almost reeled around to see my father. Then just as quickly, that flash of reality pulled me back knowing that sound had been silenced 20 years ago.

    "We won't be distracted by comparison if we are captivated by PURPOSE."  ~Bob Goff
    Every year I start in November looking at lists of words, in search of one. One little word that will help me define my year, with  reminders throughout the year of what I hope to achieve to keep me on track.
    Last year my word was LIGHT and it illuminated my life in many ways. I spent much of the year cleaning...

    To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist
    What are your plans for 2019? 
    Choosing a word to help define my year, creating a writing practice, mindfulness and of course running are just a few of the details I want to explore deeper. 2018 provided extraordinary growth with intentional living, and I love that feeling of accomplishment as I look back.

    "The tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal, the tragedy lies in no goals to reach."  ~Benjamin Mays
    What can you do in 100 days?
    Beginning my year with plenty of goals was powerful, and I would highly recommend its course. My goal list included, personal improvement goals, life goals and of course, writing. I was learning, getting stronger and following through for myself...

    It is impossible for you to go on as you were before, so you must go on as you never have.

    Grief...  (Guilt, Regret, Ignorance, Envy, Forgiveness)
    Since the loss of my mother I have been taken by grief. Captured as if a monster once lurking, returned. Grief pulls me under angrily and I wonder if it had ever left my side. All this loss in one lifetime, how can grief depart? Life...

    Today marks 5 years since Debbie had her brain surgery; Thursday is fifteen years since Joe had his brain aneurysm and one month since our mother passed away and on Friday, I will finally have that MRI doctors recommended years ago. My heart is heavy with all these emotions.
    Although I usually attempt to put an upbeat spin on the stories of our life, it’s too soon in this place where so much sadness...

    Tiny steps 
    As I examined my overflowing bookshelf a thought of dread washed over me. “ Will I ever get through all these books?”
    One book in particular constantly caught my eye. The Encyclopedia of Me, a guided journal I purchased after reading the popular ‘Encyclopedia of an ordinary life’, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. This blank journal taunted me with another reminder of my faltering...
