What would YOU have done?

I did my weekly shopping at WalMart today. I used the self check out. While putting my bags in the car, I heard something slap down on the wires of the cart. Something was not in a bag. I had not noticed, not scanned, not paid for, and not bagged one item. To be totally […]

Facebook Fakers

You know the ones. They are the people who have a “perfect” life. They always look meticulous. Their kids are athletic, brilliant models. The house is decorated for even the most obscure holiday. Their marriage is great, their job is great, and they are philanthropists. NOT. I happen to know a few people who are […]

Teamwork can be tough

Isn’t it funny how just observing your surroundings can bring a life lesson to mind? I was at a park where I noticed a red convertible car balanced on a giant spring, a playground toy. In the car were two little girls, I’d say 4ish. One was rocking back and forth and the other was […]

Falling Stars

I was driving home from working Early Voting the other night when my passenger and I simultaneously said, “Did you see that? I think it was a falling star!” Then we laughed. Turns out it was the first time either one of us had ever seen one. When I told some co-workers about it the […]

Awaiting the Unknown

I write to encourage others to move positively forward. When I face my own challenges, I feel compelled to walk my talk. We have a health situation with a family member and indications have been that it may not be an easy go from here on out. BUT, we don’t know, yet, what they are […]

Hard to get up in the dark

Have you noticed it’s dark when you get up these days? I typically get up at 6AM. It’s dark now. During the summer it was easy. The bright sun shining through the curtains seemed to say, “Good Morning, Pam! It’s a wonderful new day! Let’s get this party started!” Last week, as I rolled over […]

Respecting Others

I was walking down an aisle in the grocery store recently and witnessed a group of young women walking and talking together as they slowly strolled along. An aisle or two away, an elderly man and his visually impaired wife turned the corner and came into the path of the ladies. As the man, pushed […]

Pickleball Analogies

Many of you know Jim and I enjoy the game of Pickleball. While playing recently, I got to pondering how the rules of Pickleball are like the rules of life. For instance, consider… Stay out of the kitchen This Pickleball rule is in place to prevent players from executing smashes from a position close to […]

Riding out Florence

I was having a conversation the other day with a friend who is frantic about the incoming hurricane. She was tracking it relentlessly and checking her phone for updates, constantly. She has family on the coast and was, understandably, concerned. However, her concern was stressing her out… big time. Her family had come to stay […]
