A New Journey to Dementia

»Posted by on Oct 21, 2019 in Blog | 0 comments

It has been a rough couple of weeks. I’m sure you all can relate. Too much to do, too many places to go. For us, we moved ourselves and then a week later moved my elderly parents. Our whole family is now closer which is wonderful – but getting here was killer. We are beginning a new journey of dementia. I need peace. Driving down the road on a crisp, fall, sunny morning, I felt tired; emotionally and physically. I glanced at the craggy mountains that surround our little Central Washington valley. Sunlight glistened off a fresh new dusting of snow. Snow? In October? It was beautiful and took my breath away. Nature spoke. “I lift up my eyes to the hills– where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. indeed, he who...

Anniversary Time!

January 20th marked the three-year anniversary of Connie’s Corner.  If you’d like to read my very first post as I launched this website, here is the link. Just a little walk down memory lane. In that blog, I introduced myself and shared a little bit about my life and my purpose for having embarked on the whole website / blog journey. So much has changed in my life since then. My kids have both found their life loves and thus I now have three grandchildren and a soon to be daughter-in-law. I am no longer working as a museum director. That change came about a few months after I posted that first-ever blog.  While I miss my job, my friends and the challenges of running a thriving historical non-profit organization, I wake up every morning knowing that leaving was...

To Blog or Not To Blog! That is a question?

  Today is a special day. I am celebrating the two-year anniversary of Connie’s Corner. It pretty-much snuck up on me, and seeing this milestone date pop up on my calendar caused me to pause and take a moment from my busy schedule to reflect a bit. Why did I start my Connie’s Corner blog website? What was I hoping to accomplish? Have I reached any of the writing and speaking goals that I set for myself two years ago when I when I started down this pathway? Have I improved my quality life and affected the life of those around me in some positive manner? These were all questions that have been churning around in my head all week as the anniversary date crept closer and closer. The easiest question to answer, is the why. Why did I decide to start a blog page?...

Tuesday at Ten: Trust

»Posted by on Jan 18, 2016 in Heartfelt Treasures | 0 comments

In the words of Peter Pan, “All you need is Faith, Trust and a little Pixie Dust.” I would have to agree that statement. With these three most powerful words manifested in our life, we can conquer anything. Faith…for me personally, I can’t imagine my life without my faith. It’s what gets me up in the morning. It’s what sustains me through the good times, and the bad. It reminds me that I’m not alone in this crazy world, that there is someone who cares for me and loves me no matter what. Webster says that faith is complete trust and confidence in someone or something. It’s being willing to shout to the heavens, “I don’t know what’s happening or what will become of this situation, but I choose faith over fear. I choose!” I’ve had those kind of moments in my life...

Tuesday @ Ten: I Find Joy In…

Cue music: Julie Andrews sitting on the bed with the Van Trapp family kids…thunder claps can be heard outside. To ease their fears of the storm, she begins to sing, “These Are a Few of My Favorite Things” (written by Oscar Hammerstein) Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens Brown paper packages tied up with strings These are a few of my favorite things Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings These are a few of my favorite things. Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes Silver white winters that melt into springs These are a few of my favorite things When...
