Whatever happened to them?

Whatever happened to the ones I used to be so concerned about?  The ones who I tried so hard to please?  Whatever happened to that boy I paid such close attention to?  What every happened to those girls who made me feel less than...well, just less than?  What ever happened to those good ole buddies?  Where'd the girls go who pointed fingers at my life decisions?   Where are the ones that I cried over leaving?  Thirty years have passed and some of those folks just don't exist anymore.  Why is that?  Where are they?

Now there are new ones.  Ones that have taken place of the others.  Sometimes functioning in the same ways as before, some new and fresh- more life giving.  At least, I hope so.    Time passing does crazy things to relationships and life.

Good ole boys

I believe that hell involves being present at a good ole boys meeting.  Oh my! To top it off, they'll be wearing suits and ties and I'll be wearing blue jeans.


Someone just gave me a good hug. No one ever hugs me. I'm just not one to draw many hugs and usually I am ok with that. The hug today, though, was just what I needed. It was really nice. Thanks, Mandy.

Wishy washy

It is only Monday, but I already feel like the week is going to go by without notice. We'll spend minutes and hours and days with one another and yet we won't notice, won't remember anything significant or good. We'll go through the motions: welcome neighbors, write sermons, run errands and then the week will be over and we'll have wished we'd done things differently. We'll have wished for alone time, nap time, creative time, an inspiring experience, a good meal, something beautiful...and the week will have been over and the time is past. On to another week.

Get it together

I can't seem to get it together lately. I want it all, but instead have to make choices; choices I don't want to make.

Pick one, Helms:
Rest or exercise
Artistic expression or a clean house
Good food or cheap food
A well tended garden or time with the boys

The choices grow from there.
I wish I could have it all...lose weight, enjoy food, quiet time, good friends, good ideas, plan for the chaos...but it just isn't possible right now.
