"Whatever you think you can do, or believe you can do, begin it, because action has magic, grace, and power in it." Goethe

Friday’s Five


Signs and secrets. I guess that’s my theme this week. It’s been a good week, friends. Every day…challenges to make me remember I’m alive. Every day…blessings to be on the watch for. They come every single time. Here are five from the past few days:

My son is getting married in July!
What a sweet secret to know about…his fiancé Daniela is beautiful and smart and she laughs…the loveliest laugh. May they always find laughter in life.

I mailed my retirement packet and took it into the post office to ceremoniously mail it. It was a moment of pure relief…a hard but right decision. The camera clicked that moment. Thirty years of work on its way to Austin for final approval…

As I pack and give away and sort items from my classroom, memories come visiting. It’s been therapeutic and healing. Class photos, love notes from children, letters of thanks from parents…a real gift. Supplies and materials are finding their perfect homes. My son left with a cookie tin full of glitter today. Kids of all ages need glitter…trust me.

Texarkana Parent wants my next article–this one on positivity. It’s the sweetest thing to know that all that daily writing last year turns into good opportunities like this…

Carolyn brings enchiladas and chocolate cake for my family as a last minute surprise to end the week. Marissa stops by. An art friend Jen does, too. Friends come through daily.Thank God for them. It is “moments in time” we will remember.
I had very good ones this week. Some, you know; others I hold close to my heart. I am so grateful for the goodness of people.

I write. Make art. And in between, I do the best I can. ✌🏼️

  1. Your “positiveness” blesses my life and reminds me to find the blessing in life each day! Your friendship is such a blessing to me. Your sweet family is continually in my prayers.

  2. Not only do you inspire me to look for the things to be grateful for but to be that person who inspires gratitude.
