  • The sounds of silence

    Do you remember silence? Those times when it would be so quiet that you could hear your own heart beating?  I remember as a little boy going out to my grandparents’ house in the country; it would be so quiet. Oh sure, there were the little sounds like the chirping of crickets or the creak of the house cooling in the evening, but they were such soft sounds.

  • It’s the little things

    Little things make a big difference.  We recently got a hummingbird feeder and my mom is thrilled when those little birds fly in. Just a little hummingbird and yet it brings a lot of joy.   

    In the same way, a simple word of kindness to someone who is having a bad day can be a gift beyond measure.  Sometimes a simple card can encourage and uplift the spirit.  Little things, but somehow they matter to us.

  • What does your face say?

    Do you notice the people in the other cars as you drive down the road? I mean sure, we watch for turn signals and to get hints of how that person is driving, but do you ever actually see that person?

    Sometimes on a highway you get a few seconds to really observe someone.  I’ve seen ladies putting on make-up, and I even remember one guy who was driving and reading the newspaper. Talk about distracted driving, and that was way before cell phones.

  • Two kinds of people

    A lot of jokes and stories start with, “There are two kinds of people in the world.”  Here is my contribution. There are two kinds of people, those that love to mow the lawn and those that don’t

    I fall in the latter category. I love the fall when the lawn stops growing.  I love it when I can stow the mower and the trimmer for the winter.  On the other hand, I like a well kept lawn, so I get out there every week and get it done.
