Sunday Reflections: Community Strong

Like many of you, I feel at loose ends with this virus all around us, not knowing how long it will take for life to return to normal and it sounds like this may be our new normal for weeks to come. The worldwide coronavirus crisis is bringing out the best and sometimes worst in… Continue reading Sunday Reflections: Community Strong

Sunday Reflections: The Other Shoe Will Inevitably Drop, And It’s Ok.

This is a wonderful post with Julie writing about how to deal with life when obstacles keep getting in the way. There are always going to be situations and/or people disrupt our own little worlds, so we need to learn how to handle those disruptions in our day to day lives.

I love the analogy of waiting for the “other shoe to drop”, because it always does. I think if we acknowledge that up front, we are move equipped to roll with the punches.

Sunday Reflections: Straight Roads Can’t Make You a Better Driver

Living is not all about smooth straight roads. You may hit a bump on occasion, or possibly a deep pothole to knock you out of alignment. Sometimes, more often than not, you will come to curves or sharp turns. Maybe even a detour or two along the way, changing direction from your previous destination.
