Create The Day – With Persistence

I was going to title this Create the Day With Endurance, but I decided that persistence was a better word because it involves the qualities of being determined and enduring. I believe one of humanity’s greatest qualities is the ability to persist in the face of incredible odds toward a goal, or an ideal. How fortunate we…

Create the Day – With a Surprise

Writing, phone calls, writing, cleaning, writing, cooking, writing, organizing, writing, reading, writing….”I NEED A BREAK!” Surprise – A Birthday card in the mail with a little money in it. “Oooohh…what shall I do with it?” Buy pizza out for dinner, that’s a break from cooking for me. Writing, phone calls, writing, eating, writing, children whispering,…

Create The Day – With Thoughts

When I was a child sometimes people would say, “you think too much”. Such a funny thing to tell a child, especially a child like me. I was very imaginative, but I was also very busy, always busy, creating something or going somewhere to do something. I always had an awareness that there was power…

Create The Day – With Organization

Yes, I’m trying to get organized, again. I find that organization is something ongoing and it is definitely a big part of being creative. Lack of organization can slow creativity down; it can even bring it to a grinding halt. There are two kinds of organization that I usually have to deal with, and if either area…

Create The Day – With Passion

This is the 6th week in my Create The Day series, and I totally forgot it was Tuesday today, all day. No I’m really not brainless, as a matter of fact I had my head stuck in bills, applications and filing all day, trying to inherit & reorganize the family bookkeeping system. This is not…

Mom

My mom is one of the most compassionate people I know, not in a gushy or weepy way, but in a very practical way. Right after high school she went to nursing school and became an RN. She took care of people her whole life. By the time I was 3 she decided she should stop working…

Kind Neighbors

I have 2 neighbors that will go out of their way to be kind. The old fashioned type of kind that we sometimes miss in this busy, hectic world. One neighbor will give me vegetables from her garden in the summer. If she has extra food or anything she will share it, and she’ll always…

Create The Day

With Gratitude I hope you will join me in sharing inspirations about “Gratitude” this week. I am grateful to be born in this century when life is so much easier than in the past. Although we may still struggle with many things, I’m grateful that I live in relative comfort. I’m grateful that my house…

The Lost Day

Yesterday I could not even enter my own linkey list, not surprised that no one else did either. That’s okay, I wasn’t expecting a big turn out right away, especially since I didn’t have much chance to promote it. However, I’m submitting my “Create The Day With Joy” post today. It won’t be what you…
