Separating Neighbours for Years!

Came across a beautiful new fence with this advertising sign nailed on the sidewalk side (obviously!). The quote at the bottom made me laugh. I don't know the contractor or the fence owner, so this isn't a recommendation (though the fence looked great) but I so appreciate the contractor's sense of humour.

"I heard a flock geese arrive last night!" we… Continue reading Sowing Seeds of Kindness

Prayers on the Run

Like so many these days, I have been struggling. People near and dear to me are struggling as well. When it's your own struggles it's hard. When it's someone you love who is struggling, well that's a whole other level of worry and helplessness. And when I feel helpless or worried, I walk. If I… Continue reading Prayers on the Run
