Driving Ms. Daisy

"Driving Miss Daisy" was a popular movie about a woman and her chauffer. In life sometimes we are chauffer to someone who needs a ride as a small act of kindness.

Battling Discouragement

These past few months have been grueling. Emotionally I find myself somewhere between an ostrich and a lion.

The Key is Joy

Coronavirus has changed what's normal and has affected my mood. There have been so many changes in such a short amount of time. New restrictions weekly. Now I must wear a mask when I shop. I hate not seeing people's faces. Facial expressions are so key to communication. I haven't seen anyone all week except... Continue Reading →
