Belly Laughs … and … Sacred Wisdom: Because “Sex is Tricky”

Source Unknown but greatly appreciated!

Oh my gosh!  I just had to share this …

I enjoyed one of the hardiest, belly laughs – the kind that tickles you clear down to your soul – when I came across this brilliant post by the incomparable ‘truth teller’ and ‘hope spreader’ who is Glennon Doyle Melton.  And … in the same sacred moment,  was reminded of the delicate balance we straddle when we try to talk with our delightful, precocious, brilliant, young children about how babies are created.

I hope you enjoy this hilarious and humbling and heart-warming essay as much as I did!

Still grinning,  Karen

[GUEST POST]: This blog is so filled with great ways to handle negative experiences, embarrassing moments … those times when we tend to beat ourselves up! It is both entertaining and enlightening! I just had to share it!

One Shrink's Perspective

I was riding my bike to a dentist appointment yesterday. I was taking my time. It was a nice, leisurely ride. Meditative. Enjoyable. That is, it was, until a woman rode up beside me and said, “Excuse me…I’m sorry to bother you but…I just wanted to let you know your pants are completely see-through.

Oh shit.

Maybe if my butt wasn’t so huge, my pants wouldn’t be see-through. How many times have I cycled in these pants? Do people know me as the see-through pants girl? Maybe they’ve done a story on me in the Metro. “They call her The Nude RiderUnbeknownst to her, she wears no pants. She cycles…once at dawn, once at dusk, ignorantly, her undergarments proudly modelling…

My Tributes: Better Because of You ...

Teresa – A Fond Tribute to your Spectacular Sparkle and Gregarious Grit!

The last time I saw her was a few years back.  We had been waiting in line for quite some time and were just being seated at our table at the IHOP that had recently opened in Lethbridge. Teresa had already eaten and was just leaving … but after enjoying one of her big warm […]

The Days are So Much Better when they Start With a Smile …

My husband has been working out of the town for the last couple of weeks. He is an oilfield consultant and heavy equipment operator.  He loves his job.  Sometimes I tease that he gets paid to play in the dirt! He doesn’t just move dirt … he creates works of art.   His approach to his construction […]

Dwayne and Cheryl … So Many Moments Were So Much Better Because of You!

You came to mind yesterday.  Again.  I can’t even begin to tell you how often I think of the times we shared in that little town.  I’ll never forget the day you moved in … across the street on the other corner … kitty corner to our house.  Your kids found our kids outside and […]

A Precious Penny …

You know the old saying … ‘a penny for your thoughts’?  Well, I’d like to switch it up  and offer my ‘thoughts about a penny’.  A very precious Penny.  I’m not even sure how many years we’ve been doing it, but it’s become a very important tradition for us to sit and sip a little coffee together before the hustle and bustle of our […]
