Purpose

Of Lemon Pledge And Little Things

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

During my studies at Phoenix Seminary I was a full-time graduate student, worked full-time on staff at a church and had a couple part-time jobs. It was a gloriously exhausting season of life. One of my part-time jobs was a cleaning business. A single newspaper ad stating that I had been “trained by meticulous Grandmothers” […]

Ghost Writer

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

The wall mounted mirror is behind the door so you don’t see it when you walk in. Only when you walk out. Even then, I never paid any attention to it. On this particular day life was pouring in more than usual. Like the way I used to feel shoveling through a giant drift after […]

When the sun began to slip behind the trees lining […]

Something To Look Forward To

Friday, February 8th, 2008

The rooms on the 2nd floor of the care center horseshoe around the dining area and nurses station. A broken hip is the admission ticket for most of the people here. Some are recovering from heart problems or surgery. Some are going through physical therapy, counting the days till they gain enough strength to return home and begin living independently. For others, afflicted with Alzheimer’s, […]
