What’s one small improvement you can make in your life?

bees, butterflies,

Adjustments for my age and health now, and a slow pace. This is a good time in my life.

Thank you and blessings. Ellen

Hope to still be here with blogs

Daily writing prompt
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

When I was young, I had long-term goals, and so I understand this question. Health and family needs also changed my life, and I am grateful for all.

We plan for our older age, and see good places in our area, if we should feel the need to create a new home. I am very grateful that my blogs and work here are a home too.

There is a  WordPress Foundation – “Supporting the WordPress community since 2010.” Matt Mullenweg is the founder and director.

Grateful for how our work is supported here, and that I can create work that will last. We all can.

poem: sun rests

Daily writing prompt
Describe one positive change you have made in your life.

on a small plant
then an empty
wood chair

I read
library books
one page
at a time

A lot can be achieved at a slow pace. Consistent yet flexible. Health first. Yesterday, I reread from poetry books in my home library. I rested and also was grateful for education and friendship.

Easter Then and Now

Daily writing prompt
What makes you laugh?

Years ago, when I was recovering from illness and major surgery, and passings of loved ones, the Easter Story gave me hope.  And more so all the time. Simple meals and errands fill me with joy.

These thoughts are from a post on April 7, 2017. Major new challenges were in the future. Simple everyday life continues to be a blessing, with many moments of joy.
