A quiet journaling series. I'm taking inspiration from my summer journaling series on this autumn day. Because sometimes a tiny bit of quiet is just the ticket. Here's a quote + journaling prompts for you... We cling to our own point of view, as though everything depended on it. Yet our opinions have no [...]
Dear Thursday, Thank you for being quiet and not needing me to leave the house (except for the visit to the doctor for my sinus infection) (but thanks for that, too, because now I have medicine to knock it out of my system). Thank you for the comfortable sofa and the book I'd picked up [...]

The other day, I was working in the yard and I popped my phone in my vest pocket, thinking I might listen to music or a podcast. I never pulled it out of my pocket. I went for a walk yesterday and, again, thought about listening to music or a podcast. I left my phone [...]
On Wednesday, I shared this quote on Instagram… Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in the quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. ~Mary Jean Irion~ I thought a lot [...]
