Friends and Editors

Posted on

We all need friends and as we grow older we need them even more.  How do you choose friends?  The best friends are gentle editors.  They may lead by example and help you develop a draft.  They offer a suggestion and help you determine whether to put a comma or a period in a situation. Envy is not in their vocabulary.   When your life narrative is off course, they help you get back on track.  Still, we must take ultimate responsibility for our life decisions.

It takes time for some of us to become editor-in-chief of our own lives.  We are often thwarted when toxic grammar or false facts interrupt our flow.  It helps to remember our friends are there to guide us with God as publisher.

Peace

Posted on

There are some who seek drama and excitement at every turn.  Life for them is reality TV – anything but real – never peaceful.

The soul  needs the subtle nuturing  that only a moment of quiet  and peace can bring – ok maybe in Brookland DC birds are still  chirping.   Try a quiet prayer, look up, a yoga pose – but a moment

Regardless of religious belief or practice, there are ways to find a moment for soul renewal – even if it’s just to sit in one’s backyard with a good book for five minutes.image

Snowbound Gratitude

Posted on

Snow covers Washington DC  – the result of a record snowfall. Jean Claude, the black Bombay and Koko, the domestic shorthair are at CCL’s house relaxing and monitoring the weather to determine if they want to go in the snow.  They are patient and don’t feel trapped .   We should ‘t either.   Being snowbound presents opportunities – rest, reading, eating snack food, binge TV  and of course shoveling and limited snow sport.  Still, those of us blocked from our normal activities and travels from snow can still explore. It is a time to reflect, to remember the things and the amazing people in your life.  Gratitude
