This beautiful photo, was given to me last month. I was delighted to get an updated photo of my son and his family. That’s what one gets for being long distance.. The little miss on the right is 9 years old today. Happy Birthday Tula!
I am doing something new here, at Words Like Honey. My goal is too read more than I have been. I don’t know if I got book burn out from my last job, of working in a library. I would often check out stacks of books to one person and my desire to read seemed to dwindle. That was a long time ago, so enough of excuses. I am happy to say, that I completed this book by Rachel Simon. It was a random used book that I came across, at our local Senior center.
This book is a memoir. It kept my interest and it tugged at my heart strings and I was not surprised at the emotion I felt when I finished it. It’s not my goal to critque, just to share what I have read. I will hint that Rachel commits to a year long, of riding buses, that her sister rides daily. Beth knows the routes and the names of all the bus drivers. Rachel learns a lot about her sister’s life and learns a lot about herself. The individuals in this were everyday people, which entails some messy live’s and imperfect people, as we all are.
Be a bush, if you can’t be a tree. If you can’t be a highway, just be a trail. If you can’t be a sun, be a star. For it isn’t by size that you win or fail. Be the best of whatever you are.

On Saturday morning, we drove to the coast, knowing about the activity, that was to take place for a few days. For this moment, I am only posting this one photo. My heart is heavy, for those swept out to sea, on that day. Out of respect for them I am praying for those that have lost loved ones.
i think of you
what i know
you are loved
