A Rain Has Come and Gone…


Daylight arrives. A rain has come and gone with a vague feeling seemingly without cause. And I find myself over thinking, once again… leaving a fuzzy disconnect.

As I looked through the pane of glass, my eyes were drawn to the lines in my parents old red swing. Retracing the lines of time, I was instantly drawn to the voice of my mother as she would sing church hymns. Or the sound of my father’s snore after a hard day’s work. Reading between the lines, the slats of that old swing tells a story like no other.

Amazing how the universe is always speaking to us, causing those serendipity moments and lapse in time.

As real as the red in the wood, so are the days of my youth. The best truths are rare when read between the lines and finding my purpose within the prolific lines of life is a rare and beautiful thing.

I once read a quote that said…”Rare is a union of beauty and purity.”

And so it is with my life.

A rare treasure I hold. Nothing elaborate. Just a line of generations to pass on the greatest wisdom of simplicity. Along the red swing slats are life learned lessons of love, respect, tolerance, sharing, honesty, and a family bond framed within hearts and souls to reach our greatest potential.

Something I Learned About Betrayal


Betrayal is something we all experience at one time or another. Sad to say, but being betrayed is just a fact of life. When this happens, we can either learn and grow from it or let it bring us down. It’s our choice. Starting with faith in others is a great beginning to trusting others again. Surround yourself with positive people who you can confide in who have been through the same hurt. Distance yourself from those who are not trustworthy. Maintain control of your emotions. It can be so easy to have the “eye-for-an-eye” mindset, but don’t go there. Your emotions can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Don’t be a betrayer. Pray about it. Give it to God. But most of all, forgive…forgive…forgive.

My Six Word Story


~Don’t micromanage me. It doesn’t work.~

In the words of Theodore Roosevelt,

“The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it.”
