Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Let Them In

Recently I have gone through a hard time with my sister-in-law’s cancer. I’m so glad I have so much support from my friends here on the Cape. Many times I would hesitate to say what was wrong when asked. You know that feeling – everyone has their own bag of stuff and they don’t need me adding to it. Little did I know that I was actually being selfish by thinking that way. The day before her brain surgery I read a post by Lisa Jones on her blog “Just Here. Just Now”. It’s a great blog and Lisa is an insightful person as well as a great writer. The title of this particular post was: Cry It Out: Accept Compassion. Usually I read posts encouraging the giving of compassion and this one stood out because it was about accepting compassion. Lisa’s ideas were so well expressed that I won’t even try to paraphrase them. I’ll just provide the link below to her post.

Take note of the blog title and tagline. Just here. Just now. Celebrating the only moment we ever have. Isn’t that the truth?

And so, as another day goes by, thank you Lisa for your thoughts….thoughts I needed at an opportune time, thank you, all my friends, both near and far for your support and prayers, thank you God for the miracle of healing you performed, I will spend the weekend being “just here, just now”, and….I have written.
Just Here. Just Now.
