Laughing with Mother

Originally posted on Long walks and dark chocolate:
Mom loved getting cards! With vivid clarity, I can remember her laughter coming from the other side of the Hallmark aisle, where she had found a card funnier than the one we had just shared a laugh over.   She would say, “We better stop laughing so…

New Orleans Facts and Monkey-business

As I relax for a while this afternoon and relive events from the past 24 hours, I am reminded of how quickly time passes and how seasons change when we aren’t looking.  We are continually depositing memories into our life account.  When we are older and have more time to ourselves, may we all have […]

Optic Flow

At lunch today, I enjoyed warm sun, a nice breeze and fresh air; an elixir guaranteed to induce tranquility and on occasion deeper than normal thought.

Slow and Sure or Fast and Faulty?

Like much of the time spent in my car, I had my music on low, enjoying my time alone with my Father.  Driving down one of the major roads in my area, I was again touched by the beauty that we pass every day, often taking for granted.  I thanked my Creator once more for […]

Daily Prompt: Heard

I heard the roar of the ocean’s waves as they chased me back towards the shore and the sounds of tiny hustling crab feet scurrying across the sand. The gulls were flapping their wings, crying out to tell the others their fish stories and the palm trees were gently swaying in the breeze. The crunch […]

Facing Fears

  I just wanted to have a little fun today so I tried a little different style than normal. She began to shake from her insides out, or so it felt.  She clasped her now sweaty palms together under her desk and felt as if she could squeeze the very blood out of them if […]
