Let me say, first off, that people mean well. But sometimes the response to a person’s concerns doesn’t sit well. I don’t think people have been taught how to handle talking to someone faced with a difficult situation. Or they feel uncomfortable when faced with something hard. I have just recently been scheduled for a …

Cats Are Easy, Right?

I have had cats all my life. I love their independence, their playfulness, their personalities and how easy they are to train. Ooops. Well, not really. Since moving to the States, I have kept my cats inside as indoor cats. I tended to live in countryside areas with pastures and bushes close by. Too many …

I Need a Shoulder…

Life is hard. Trying to live as a Christian is even harder. When life throws you challenges what do you do? Or is it God that throws the challenges at you, watching you to see what you’ll do, hoping that you will learn from the challenge? I think it’s God. I know it’s God. There …

I watch the news every night. Not for long. Just to get a sense of what is going on. It is pretty discouraging to see what is happening in America. The America that I adopted in 2016. The America that I have made my home. Watching the protests, the riots, the calls to defund the …
