Weekend Inspiration

Nothing like a bit of Mr. Darcy to start your weekend off right. I think I will always love these words… (Even though Lizzie wanted to punch him in the face when he was done saying them. I thought he was pretty hot about...

For the First Time

A few weeks ago I had the profound experience of witnessing the last days of my Grandma’s life. Talking to Grandpa I realize they met in a time when relationships were different…sometimes distant. On the drive home I cried for a long time…you can’t cry when you’re there to help people, to lift them up and bring a smile when there is very little to smile about. But alone, in the car with the radio on, the tears were free to come just as much as they liked. It felt good to sob and remember and sob some more in gratitude and mourning.

It’s a balm to my soul when I’m stressed over unchangeable things. It’s a vacation when money is tight. It’s a door to my imagination and a guide to my intelligence. I find it to be a pure pleasure. In the last week I’ve spent more than one night curled up with a book until the wee hours of the night.
