I see a room with a painted blue floor in the picture. Freshly painted white bead boards hug the ceiling. White panel planks line the walls, and black metal hardware indicate where the closets are in the space. It’s a finished attic room. A bedroom for a soon to be sixteen year old, who has been sharing a small bedroom with her ten year old sister. It would be the perfect setup if only…. If only we knew how to make it look like the picture. If only we could get rid of all our attic stuff, likes clothing, books, furniture, keepsakes…. If only we had more money budgeted to make it all happen. How to get started. The picture is printed and posted. It stays there pinned to the board.

I've enjoyed writing since the first grade, since my aunt gave me a journal so long ago to write in. Now I write to enjoy the moments. I write to stretch and share my thoughts. I write to connect and find calm. Raising three kids, three rabbits and two cats, with a school social work career, I need the daily refuge writing offers. The simple reflections allow for an abundance of memories to the hurried pace of life. View more posts
