#Me Too Moments

He grabbed her. They were at the Mcdonald’s playground. She came up to the table. “I have something important to tell you.” “Wait a second until we are done talking.” Miranda continued her animated story.  Three minutes later, “Okay what is it?” “A boy grabbed me on the slide (she pointed at her tiny breast)…

I saw my Ex-Husband

I saw him yesterday. It has been six months. Fernando, the ex. I was speaking to a good friend about what the experience of seeing him might be like. She offered maybe I would think to myself, “I am so glad this didn’t work out.”  That wasn’t exactly what happened. I could feel him walking…

Dating, I think no.

“It’s been long enough, isn’t it time? How long is enough time? You will miss him when he comes. You can’t put time lines on things like this.” “Oh I can and I must.” “And God your list, who can live up to that?” “I won’t settle again. I can bend my list but most…

Cars are the Necessary Evil

Cars are one of those necessary evils! If only cars drove perfectly all the time! I used to change my own oil but I had a minivan then! That was also eight years or so ago! I could go right under the van. I have also forgotten how to do it. Regardless, there is no…

Sunday Night Summer Reflections

He said, “Part of the grace on your life is who you were not born as. No matter how bad it is, it could always be worse.” I watch people. I examine myself. How often does that haughtiness come out? You know the one. The one where you think to yourself, “I’d never do that.”…

Solo Driving across America

Jesus Lives?

I was on my way to Bethel church. I was driving through a forest and around mountains in the pouring rain! Sure glad my dad told me how to tap breaks before I left. I am definitely a tapper! It was all good until the sign read, “Rock slide area.” “Well great, Grace drives across…

Eleven Hours

I have friends who are real travelers.  They look at everything.  They savor it.  They take it in.  They meet the people and eat the food.  Not me.  At least not this round.  I’m on a mission.  That mission is to drive! I stopped at the International House of Prayer in Missouri.  I like to…

Mr. Weakshake

He was standing behind me in line.  He was attractive.  We were waiting to get into a store. A busy store. I had my shades on with a scarf that covered my face.  Its my way of saying, “Don’t talk to me!” without the use of headphones. A man walked up to speak to the…

#L.A. Dream Living

Sam: I wonder how long we can go without a fridge. Me: It depends on how the other two roommates are. What are those things called, they are square you can hold food in them? Sam: (laughs) A cooler? Me: YEAH! One of those we could get a cooler. Sam: #L.A. Dream Living! Me: I’d…
