The Light Fantastic

Friday, September 9th, 2016

“Inside every sane person there’s a madman struggling to get out,” said the shopkeeper. “That’s what I’ve always thought. No one goes made quicker than a totally sane person.”

Terry Pratchett, The Light Fantastic

A Green Light

Friday, September 4th, 2015

You may not immediately recognize a green light.

Mostly because you aren’t ready to move forward.

The green light might be flashing in front of you for days months or even years

and it’s only because of the right timing and circumstances that you see

what has been there for quite some time.

That’s the beauty of a green light–it patiently gives you the go ahead

to proceed when you’re ready.

Green Lights

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Sometimes we don’t immediately recognize the green lights we get in life.

Mostly because we aren’t ready to move forward.

The green light might be flashing in front of us for days months or even years

and it’s only because of the right timing and circumstances that we see

what has been there for quite some time.

That’s the beauty of a green light–it patiently gives us the go ahead

ready when we are.

Try the Lighter Side

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

It’s difficult  to smile when you really just want to cry but it helps heal your heart and mind if you do. Turning a tear into a smile can lift you and keep your spirit from breaking.

As hard as it is, if you are blue and down, find something to do that brings you joy. Read a book, watch a tv show you know makes you smile, call a friend, go to a movie, or play with your pet.  Remember that your child who loves you can’t wait to see your smile.

After you have a setback, suffer a loss, or receive bad news, do your best to allow time to pull through to the lighter side; let it happen.

Being Thankful

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

For each new morning with its light,

For rest and shelter of the night,

For health and food, for love and friends,

For everything Thy goodness sends.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Turning Off Kitchen Lights

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Have you any idea how many kids it takes to turn off one light in the kitchen? Three. It takes one to say, “What light?” and two more to say, “I didn’t turn it on.”     Erma Bombeck
