Random thoughts-

Hello again,
I am back to share a few thoughts and tidbits of humor. It has been a minty-eye kind of day for me. Thought I would share a couple of adventures with you. As many of you know, I only sleep about 4 hours a night and I am good with that, but this morning was a real eye-opener and stinger for me.

I got up and poured my first cup of coffee and sat down to put my eye drops in....mistake...big one. I put mint breath drops in my right eye. Talk about a wake up call. I will say this eye was cool and clear. That will NOT happen again. Carelessness on my part.

I have to tell you about something I did the other day. Now you know that I have thought sour cream was a napkin and I have mistaken a can of whole white potatoes for a can of pears in heavy syrup. For those of you who do not know, I am a media consultant and layout advertisements. Normally the only challenge is my artistic ability - but I carefully laid the ad out, colored it in with the colors I wanted and when I was done I went to pick up the paper to scan it to my graphics department. I was not able to though because I had drawn in out and colored it right on my desk...which is also white. For a couple of minutes frustration set in. I took a picture of the drawing and sent it to my graphics department. So I had to scrub my desk...not really a big deal in the scheme of things. Not necessarily funny at the moment but very funny to me now.

What is the point of this? My point is simple - we all have some bad or embarrassing moments in our lives and it is good to learn to laugh about them. 
I do all kinds of crazy things-I just rarely get caught in action. It is even more funny when I do.

I started writing again about 4 months ago and I have met some amazing and talented folks along the journey.

Today, I want to tell you about one of them his name is Jack Tomkovick.
Here is one of my all time favorite pens.

This is just one piece he share in his book  Volume I "You touched My Soul"

Here are some links to his books

and his newest book


I know so many people fighting cancer and other serious/life threatening diseases. Please take a moment today to think about those suffering and struggling with illnesses and life's obstacles. Uplift them in prayer.


  1. This post really made me laugh. I like how you hinted at what happened to your eye in the first paragraph but I only caught on when you explained it. I didn't know that you've mistaken those items but that made me laugh even more, I'm sorry. Aw, shame. It must have really sucked when you realised your mistake. It's good to see how you still laugh at yourself, though. Thank you for the links and for reminding us that there are always people going through what we are or who have it worse than we do.

    Thank you for this

  2. I have been blessed. I know some very amazing people. Glad that you are one of them. Who knows what will show up next? Life is about living, giving and laughing so I have the best of all worlds.
