My Morning Musings ☀️

Taking the time to sit in quietude helps bring things into perspective and gives me strength. Taking time from the busyness of living, even if it’s ten minutes to listen to the birds and slow lap of rippling waters while the sunlight dances is good for My Soul. ~mE_2019~




Happy New Years Eve..2018




Happy New Years Eve Everyone!! Hard to believe another year has come and gone. I have no complaints with my 2018. For all intent and purposes it was good to me. I will be spending today and tonight, home alone., reflecting, contemplating, and planning…….I have much to be Thankful for…..these beautiful humans, my children and grandchildren ❤️


this is what it’s all about ❤️


I miss my Pa bunch ❤️

I’m Thankful for ‘my tribe’….their friendship and understanding has been good Medicine this year.


Love these ladies ❤️

My Earth Angels… know who you are ❤️🙏 Your continued love, encouragement and support during this journey has also been good Medicine…I Love You 🙏❤️

New Year = what for me? I have no clue….but I’m open to whatever comes my way…while this has been my second full year of my widow’s journey, it is my Hope and Plan to go into 2019 with both feet on the ground (I need my grounding!) all the while still spreading my wings and riding my Winds Of Change. I do know I want and need to go into this New Year taking the emphasis off of widow and putting it back on Linda the Living. Being a widow is and always will be a part of who I am, but it’s not what defines me………..change also means figuring out the changes I need to make here with my blog. I’ve been floundering with it and it’s purpose……I’m up for the challenge though……….

So Maddox and I wish y’all a very Happy New Year 🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊


Happy New Year 🎉

Waterfall Dreams 

A cold December Day,

The air brisk and clear.

It’s filled with the melodious

euphony of the Falls,

Calling, beckoning.

Sitting, contemplating, breathing.

The pureness of the air

Clears the mind,

And soothes the Soul.


Thursday’s Pondering….

“Take a moment, find something to be genuinely happy about, and you can literally feel that positive energy flowing in you. Now step forward and put it to work.”

Embracing the beauty and gift of this new day ☀️ 

Stuff happens that we have no control over. We sit up in the wee hours of the morning, working on a plan for each scenario, not knowing which one is going to have to be the one we play out. But, as the sun comes up, we know in our hearts, that we will make it. No matter which way this thing goes, together we can handle anything that comes our way. 

And in the beauty of the early dawn, we’re grateful. New Day. New Beginning.
