Responsibility is it Declining?

While writing a new chapter on my website called, “Next Stop is Okinawa”, many questions came to my mind as I was typing about a job which I had worked at prior to leaving Texas for Okinawa. While describing my job requirements and responsibilities while working as a  grocery cashier/checker at HEB in 1969, I realized that many young people in 2018 would find those job requirements and responsibilities quite challenging and maybe a little bit enslaving. Having these thoughts running through my mind,  led me to wonder about the changes that modern technology has made in the world,...

Talented, Beautiful, Successful

I believe God put a lot of thought into creating each of us while making us all unique, special and different. Also, I think that He gave us all a special purpose that is designed just for us to fulfill while we are living in the flesh. It is easy to look around and want to be that somebody else who we might think is more talented, more beautiful, or more successful. When we see the talents of others and compare them to our own, is it a fair comparison?  I remember as a young woman thinking how others around me seemed so much more talented in various ways than I was but some of them did not...

Cutting Your Hair, Widow’s Blog

While heading to the treadmill this morning, I decided to stop a minute, go into the bathroom, and just trim my bangs a little because I was tired of them tickling my eyebrows. Being fully dressed in my sports bra, shirt, shorts, socks, and tennis shoes was not a problem because it was just gonna be a quick trim of my bangs.  There was absolutely no reason to worry about getting hair on me. Of course, I also wore my “sweet” Artificial Intelligent Fitbit on my arm, so it could record my every move then give me those subliminal, encouraging messages it runs across its “sweet...

Read First Then Look at the Picture

Sometimes something happens that totally takes me backward a few steps just for a moment in the mystery of wonderment. This type of “thang” would instantly turn some peoples faces red, a fire would come from their eyes and they would get really upset.  Not me. When I am totally surprised by nonreality of something I look for the humor in it first.  After all some kinda way it has to be funny. Here’s the deal, this morning I got up early to post a chapter of my book on my Nancy Lou Henderson Facebook page titled   Apartment, Snoopy, Corncob Pipe.  The picture I chose for...
