There is no magic to forgive and forget

I read another sad post the other day about relationships and the conundrum/riddle of forgive and forget.  I believe one can forgive someone for hurting us and continue life without resentment or hold a grudge toward that person. Without going to any textbook explanation, but rather based on pure personal observation, I believe that not … Continue reading There is no magic to forgive and forget

In Remembrance

I heard the broadcasts this morning, “It’s been seventeen years.”  Each year as September 11 approaches we are called to remember the day when the unthinkable happened.  We will remember exactly where we were and what we were doing the moment we first heard the news that our great and powerful nation was attacked on … Continue reading In Remembrance

Just Friends, For all Time

Alondra Elena Delopas sat on a swivel chair in her lanai listening to the rain as the winds picked up and thunder clapped in the distance.  Baby Girl lay with her legs sprawled but her nose pressed against the screen. She struggled to see what was moving in the conservation land that bordered the small … Continue reading Just Friends, For all Time

Oh coffee, dear coffee

Friday RDP: Coffee I like to say I’m a social drinker when it comes to coffee.  My favorite is espresso, and I have such weakness for its aroma. The taste must not be bitter or harsh as it goes down the throat and lands warm in one’s belly.  It's not unlike a fine brandy that … Continue reading Oh coffee, dear coffee

Dream Crazy.

Politics Anyone?

Primaries are done here in Florida, and my two favorite candidates did not move on to November’s general elections.  I suspected as much, but I was hoping that others would get on board after they got to know them and saw how hard they were working.  Don’t get me wrong, we had many qualified candidates … Continue reading Politics Anyone?

Happiness Is Like a Butterfly

After another WP workshop to improve my writing, I am going back to some of my favorite posts and reworking them a little. I don’t think this one is done yet. Any thoughts on the subject?

I have difficulty finding a favorite quote to share because I have many.  I store bits wisdom from a variety of people and sources.  First and foremost I often quote my parents and grandparents, especially to my younger generation. Its the Wisdom of the Elders.

Through the years I’ve memorized quotes from the Bible and preachers; from educators and authors – even quotes from “the mouth of babes.”  As we know kids say the truth no one else dares to. 

These quotes and special thoughts are put away in seemingly random places in my mind, but they are usually available when I need them. I often sprinkle them…
