Crabs and Pearls

I will readily admit that I did not want to get up and walk this morning. I lie in bed for a while, thinking of all the reasons why I shouldn't go walking this morning, satisfied with my one - woman pity party...and having a great time lol...Well, I decided to go ahead and get…

Raising Moo Is Hard

This morning when Moo and I went outside to walk, I announced that we were starting today with our weights. Moo became excited and in true Moo fashion, grabbed the biggest sets of weights and took off. I asked him if he wanted the smaller weights and explained that he may need to start off…

Running After the Trashtruck

So, Team Pruden was up early this morning, going about our normal activities, when lo and behold, we heard the familiar "beep beep" of the "refuse collector" coming on our street! We had not put the trash out, so Aaron scrambled to get the trash out to the curb, while Moo was instructed to catch…

My Flowerbeds and The Unfinished House

This is another fb post from 2011...read and be blessed.... Recently, through email and facebook, I shared with people my process of a spiritual awakening and how I likened it to an unfinished house in my neighborhood and my flowerbeds....I would like to add to those analogies with more thoughts, so bear with me:- So,…

What My Flowerbeds Have Taught Me

This is a Facebook from 2011....So, I had not been able to tend to my flower beds this year due to being busy/being sick/being lazy, so about 3 weeks ago, I decided to start the process of cleaning them out......and boy, what a mess!!! As I was cleaning them out, the thought came to me…
