We’re at the height of our powers, he said,

and we laughed,



we friends who’ve known each other for years,

friends who mostly know the truths.


Think about it, he said.



Our kids are grown. Our careers are built. We have money enough.

(He was being quite earnest.)

We’re healthy, functioning physically. We have our wits.



We can pretty much do what we want, and enjoy it.


Then this, which came at me like a ton of carefully fired bricks.


It’s not gonna always be like this, he said.



Now is the golden time. 


(Height of our powers.)



Let’s be grateful.

Hi. I’m Cathy.

This is a blog about writing, creative living, and grace in the everyday. It’s my hope this little spot on the internet will be for you a place of quiet and reflection, a source for inspiration, and a reminder there’s beauty all around—we simply need to keep our hearts open to see it. Thank you for being here with me.
