Wishing You An Upside Down Kind of Advent

Welcome to the season of Advent. Traditionally,  the four Sundays leading up to Christmas. A time of waiting and anticipation. The word Advent comes from the Latin. It means coming.

Are You Stuck In Your Comfort Zone

We all have a comfort zone but the key is not to get stuck there. It happens every time I step into the shower. My three dogs, Miley, Sadie, and Zoe follow me into the bathroom and curl up on the bathroom rug in front of the shower. Stuck In Our Comfort Zone They don’t […]

Just A Saga of The Second Chance Mouse

Resolving Not To Make Resolutions In 2018

It’s hard to believe, but we have entered the last week of 2017. As we look forward to 2018, I thought this would be a good time to reshare the following post. It first appeared on January 3, 2017, but I think It’s a great reminder for 2018. It’s January so it must be time to […]

All The Hope And Anticipation Has Led Us To This Moment

Do you remember how you felt on Christmas morning when you were a child? All that anticipation leading up to Christmas; counting down the days, dreaming of what gifts you wanted to receive and then at last… Christmas morning, the excitement is so palpable you can’t sleep. You try getting your parents up at the […]

How To Kick Worry To the Curb Forever

Everybody worries. Some of us don’t just worry sometimes we have such a problem with worry that you might say we are addicted to it. If we find ourselves not worried, we get worried that there is something we should be worried about and we worry until we figure out what it is. Then we […]
