  1. Amazing blog! Wisdom beyond your years! I love this, reblogging to Stone in the Road. This is a collection of stories that I put together to keep on this blog. I want to keep them alive and re-read by myself and anyone who wanders. Thank you for these words. ~Kim

  2. Knowing that you have the heart and brain to figure out where you are headed and how you will get there makes me happy. I’m so glad to know that your heart and spunk keep you moving ahead. The realization that a few toes and half a leg are just that. Half a leg and toes, not the heart of you. I think it’s wonderful that your socks will last twice as long.
    I don’t think any of us ever feel like we are adults who really know what the world is about. None of us can ever see around the corner. I would like to meet the one who can. I would like to meet The who is one so sure of themselves that there are never any questions. I like not knowing my road. Sometimes I have to turn quickly or jump. Sometimes I get my feet wet. I am not supposed to know it all. That’s what faith is what it is all about. Worry about myself or the small things in life? No. It’s more important to fire the pot. It will be beautiful cracked or not. Have your mom send you the picture of “our” pot. All faith and laughter!

    1. Oh, friend! I love you! I don’t know if I told you this but when I was in the hospital and physical therapy was making me wheel, walker, or crutch down the hallway and I was hating life I kept thinking of you and your dad’s mailboxes. I didn’t think I could make it to the nurse station or the other end of the hall, but I knew I could make it to the next doorway. I felt so overwhelmed and incapable when looking at the whole, but breaking it down kept me going because I knew I could make it one more doorway than I did yesterday. Eventually I could do everything they wanted but it was the mailboxes that kept me going until I could.


    1. I love you, Joan! You’re so unapologetically authentic and real. If only everyone knew how to be thus, the world would be a better place.

      You know, I was retreading the old ones, which is why I put them out again, because they were so very relevant to me too. It seems everything comes around in a circle.
