Last week, I set this extreme goal of writing nine poems a day. It didn’t happen. I simply didn’t think it was possible. Then yesterday I participated in two 15-minute sprints.

At Christmas time, my mom asked my sister and me if we have any goals for 2018. This is a funny question for my mom to ask because, as she would say, her main goal is keeping up with the laundry. My sister chuckled. Like my mother, she isn’t apt to map out her goals […]

Sometimes it is blank and almost […]

Let’s just get this goal out of the way. It’s the one most people resolve to achieve in a new way at the start of every new year. Which is probably why I’ve decided to try something new. I’m going to take care of it now. Before New Year’s Day. On Thanksgiving Eve. I’m certain […]

“When caught in the pursuit of perfection, my focus is on the finished product, and I miss the daily fun….God doesn’t expect us to complete our entire life’s to-do list in one week!” from Joan C. Webb’s It’s a Wonderful Imperfect Life   Matthew 6:34 NIV Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will […]
