In 1979, the uplifting song, “We are Family,” became very popular. This song was performed by the four Sledge sisters’ group they called, Sister Sledge. They wanted the world to know they were proud of their family bond as they flew through life “like birds of a feather.” As I write this, the song makes rounds in my head.
I wasn’t a blogger at all when I began blogging, so naturally, I was quite nervous. I am supposed to put my private thoughts and experiences out there. What if I get ridiculed or criticized for putting my heart out there and bearing my soul? This thought resonated through me long after I pressed my first “publish” button.
Well, I am happy to say, I have not had that experience at all. If anything, I have found it to be a great joy. Through blogging at WordPress, I have found a family of friends. I have gotten to know them by reading their posts, and by the warm and loving comments they have left on mine. Some have even called me friend. And in many ways, we are family, we fly through the blogosphere like birds of a feather. I am especially touched because I have very little real family, and often feel cheated and left out of the community and togetherness of a family’s inner circle. Continue reading
There is one thing about life that never changes,
And that is that things are constantly changing.
Change is everywhere in our natural world. Each second of each minute of each hour of each day, nothing stays the same. Over the centuries, the ocean waves have never remained still. They repeat their rhythm with crashing roars on the coastline, evaporating to create rain clouds, providing varying degrees of tides, and sometimes a very dangerous temper. Even the stillest lake, has life moving within its serene waters. Continue reading

I became an unwed mom in the summer of 1980 at 23 years of age. Then my babysitter quit abruptly, leaving me stunned and stranded. I depended on the childcare in order to work my full time job, my only means of support. I drove to my mother’s house and asked if she’d watch my baby until I found another babysitter. Our relationship had been strained as far back in my early childhood as I could remember, but I really believed she’d help me out considering the urgency of the situation. Of all people, I felt sure she would understand. Her mother helped her care for me when I was a baby and she was an unwed mother.
