  1. Hi Melissa. Hope you got a goodly dose of restorative rest and are up and about, standing strongly on terra firma somewhere in the misty healing rains of Britain. 🇬🇧 Sigh…. I appreciated this beautiful and melancholy post. We’ve all been in this place a time or two. You reminded me of a song I loved many decades ago. The lyrics are some of my favorites. (Reminiscent of something you may have penned.) Thought I might share it with you. You Tube.

    Please continue sharing your precious gift of writing.🌺

    1. Thank you Jane! I will definitely look at that video. Unfortunately, due to financial circumstances, I’m back in Utah for a long time to come. But it’s all good. I have family here and I’m bringing my England with me. 🙂 Thank you so much for your comment. I always think even if there’s just one person who likes to read my posts, that’s enough for me to keep writing. ❤


    It is never an option. And I would have to jump on a plane, put you over me knee, and give you the spanking of your life. LIfe doesn’t always go the way we hope, but it’s because he has a better plan for us. You have to have faith and trust in that.


    1. ROFL!! Oh thank you. I haven’t laughed that hard in a while sweet friend. I do trust Him. And the prayers of many have helped. Been a difficult few months nd financially things are bad. But I have family and friends so I’m doing ok. More to the point, how are you?!

        When I saw the title I was alarmed.

        It is a rough time for everyone, nearly impossible for what you were trying to accomplish. So, I imagine how down you are.
        But I always have this thing inside of me that reminds me everything happens for a reason. You just don’t know what that reason, someday you will look back and understand.

        Missed you

        I am well. Coming back to blogging slowly.
        Not going to get stressed with the ton of messages waiting. One day at a time.

        Hugs and kisses.
