A Movie Full of Sweetness

The boy, the mole, the fox and the horse.

Of course, I’m going to love a book that starts out with the main character being asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” and he answers “Kind.” It just gets better from there. The bestselling book, The Boy, The Mole, The Fox, And The Horse by Charlie Mackesy has been made into a short, animated film, and I encourage everyone to watch it. It’s a charming story with a universal message of love, friendship, and hope.

We get stressed over who to buy gifts for, worrying about forgetting someone, worrying about how much to spend and what gift to buy, and of course, worrying about spending money we can’t afford to please others.  Here’s your reminder that we show our love by giving our time and care, not by buying material goods.  Continue reading It’s that Time of Year . . . .

Pickleball is Therapy

Ocean Pines Pickleball Community
Ocean Pines, MD, Pink Ribbon Event

Pickleball has been all over the news for the last few years. It even made it to the front page of the Washington Post. It’s been called the fastest-growing sport in America and people of all ages, shapes, and sizes have been jumping in to play. I’ve been playing pickleball for 10 years but it wasn’t until Matt died that I appreciated the therapeutic effects of pickleball.

Imagine Life Without Your Computer

computer hug

Lucky me, I don’t have to imagine it, that was my life. When my laptop was on my lap it was getting super hot and the fan was running loudly. I took it to the Apple store and they told me I needed a new battery and it would have to be sent away for replacement. The thought of not having my computer made me anxious. My computer is a part of my everyday life, I couldn’t imagine going days, or god forbid weeks, without it.

My last post was about gratitude and since then, I stumbled upon a wonderful article called 7 Buddhist Lessons in Gratitude by Victor M Parachin, which I’m sharing with you but there’s a catch.  I’m only sharing 6 of the lessons because I strongly disagree with lesson number 4, so I’ve deleted it.  Yup.  If you can’t trust that I’m right and your curiosity is getting the better of you, you can always click on the link at the bottom of the post and read the original post.
