Old Books

Where can you reduce clutter in your life?

Daily Prompt

I have old books from my mother’s home. More than I can read, and I hope to donate some to a thrift store for others to read, or perhaps use in collage projects.

Not now, in winter. Maybe they will be an Easter gift. They are not “clutter” but perhaps good to share.

In terms of reducing clutter, I have found it helpful to work a little at a time. This morning, after work in the kitchen, I thought:

morning work
for a few moments
everything in place

Think back on your most memorable road trip.

What is your mission?

Daily Prompt

My mission is hope. I write because I love language, enjoy designing blog posts, and to offer a few moments of beauty, encouragement, and hope.

For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD:
thou art my trust from my youth.

Psalm 71: 5 (KJV)
