A Pumpkin Spice Whiskey Sourpuss

I'm sharing Grandad's recipe for a zesty fall drink that he affectionately called a Pumpkin Spice Whiskey Sourpuss.  He added the "sourpuss" part because of the way it makes your lips pucker up after the first sip.  It's definitely got some tang to it!  Get your cocktail shaker and pour in a couple of ounces of some full-flavored bourbon, such...

A Prayer

Father GOD, I thank you for blessing me with another day.  I try not to take anything for granted.  I had a good visit with Joy and David this week, and I just ask that you watch over them as they make the journey back home to Utah.  I also pray that you'll bless Jordan and look after him as...

October Memories

Halloween is coming up.  It reminds me of all those years that Dad and I took Janie trick-or-treating. I remember well the time that Janie wanted to dress up as a nurse. Naturally, she needed some patients to look after, so she decided that Dad and I should wear some bandages and a hospital gown. Janie was none too happy...

Counting Sheep

I hate it when I'm going through a bad spell of insomnia.  The days and nights just sort of run together until I become a big blob of restless energy.  I say blob because I'm not fit for much without sleep, and the restless energy is what comes from lying in bed and trying to will my uncooperative body into ...

September 11

It's the day before the September 11th anniversary and the whole world seems to be holding their breath, fearing another attack.  The Taliban has stepped up their threats and violence, and the situation in Afghanistan seems tenuous at best.  The reality is that the scene is like a powder keg of tension just waiting to explode.  Too many Americans have...

To stay or come along?

I'm happy my family is asking me to stay with them temporarily during this pandemic since the setup is still work-from-home. However, I'm doubtful about whether I should go with them or continue living alone. The perks in living alone are being able to stay focus and being able to manage your own time and meals.  It's freedom, but indeed...

This time around

I was worried that my mood would continuously get affected if things get worse. During the first phase of the pandemic, I had a hard time because the news made me overthink to the point that I got unmotivated enough to neglect my responsibilities. I spent most of the time in my room scrolling through social media. I managed to...

A continuation

We don't really talk about our issues.  Well, I honestly didn't even realize that we had issues until he was gone.  And no one knew/knows except for my mother, sister, and you guys.  For some reason, telling strangers on the internet is easier than telling the people I know in real life.  It's allowed me to speak my truth without...

Keeping it simple

I feel carefree not going with the mainstream and focusing on the slower part of life. The isolation imposed by the pandemic made me want to spend more time on social media. Thankfully, I managed to divert myself to a better way of spending my time. At times, I'd feel intimidated about not knowing the trend because it makes me...

So many changes

I'm still with my husband now, but a few months ago he sat me down and said our marriage was over and that he wanted to start a new life with another woman.  It turns out that he had his head turned by a colleague.  My husband turned my world upside down that day and left me with an ache...

Getting something out of the rigor

Whenever I feel envy towards others, I would take a step back to think for myself. Somehow, what I have experienced concerning my illness is what created my character. However, this isn’t to say that you have to suffer physically to obtain wisdom. I’m also not fond of the thought of being grateful just because others have it worse. I...

Missing the Days

On some days, I found it inconvenient to care for my loved ones. My mom had diabetes, and it was frustrating that she wouldn't follow the doctor's advice. I'd remind her of the right amount of food to eat, but then she'd ignore me and continue with her business. Then there was my dad, who developed liver problems because of...
