Finding Joy When You Least Expect It
Things are a bit nutty around here. Tomorrow I teach my yoga practicum, 25 minute class for the first time and Wednesday we sit for our final exam (three hour exam). Thursday we have graduation (assuming I pass) and Friday morning I fly to Colorado. (Excited). Saturday I am going to pick up my car from Winter Park and Sunday I move into my old/ new house. So ……… I may be a bit quiet on here……
For now I am soaking up my last few days in Costa RicaView full post »

Below are letters in my leaving… enjoyDear Saturday,You seemed so far away… almost as though you would never ever come but alas you are here. I cannotView full post »

Dear mating geckos/ lizards in our house,
Let me start by saying I am sorry. So sorry the flash scared you and interrupted your inappropriate behavior. Perhaps next time choose a more discreet location than the center of the wall in our kitchen to create baby geckos.

Letters to things…..Happy Friday to all of you….
So glad that making a funny face at you while I walk by your classroom and your supposed to be paying attention to the Spanish teacher, makes you giggle and laugh. Your fragile hearts and honest souls continue to remind me why God calls us all to have a childlike faith. Thank you for that reminder

Days ago I wrote a post here that consisted of Letters. Letters to things part 2…. happy day yallDear words,You have the power to mend, to break and to heal even the faintest of hearts. You offer comfort and with the same lips you can offer pain. Although today I am grateful that long ago someone used these words and said, “Wherever you are, Be all there”. I am certain God spoke these words to someone long ago…..now every day these words are a reminder to be presentView full post »
I have always been a big fan of written letters, hand written notes, cards, just simple things that tell someone how much they mean to you or wishing them well. So in light of this crazy week at school and our children who are so close to jumping of the roof top with excitement and the teachers who are begging for time to pass quickly I thought I would write a series of letters to things…. has helped me keep sane a bit.
