September 2 Remember—Part III

Two years ago, September 2016 was a difficult month for me. A string of disappointments, which I’ve alluded to, had already begun. This particular week was difficult because there was a mosquito in our house, and it kept biting me. In a week’s time, I’d gotten bit 15 times, then a couple days went by, and I got another bite or two. I think I totaled at 17 before I finally found the mosquito and killed it. What was going on? I was being tested again, and I didn’t like it. #tempertemper #refinersfire #September2Remember Click to Tweet

September 2 Remember — Part II Where Were You?

It was a beautiful, sunshine-y day, seventeen years ago. I’m not one to get up and turn on the news. My mother lived with us and she had an eye appointment with an optometrist in the late morning. #September2Remember @donnalhsmith @a3writers

September 2 Remember – Part I

Does it seem like time flies by? Well, it does me. The older I get, the faster it goes, too. I’d heard that when I was younger—especially when time seemed to be slow, and nothing was happening. Now that I’m “older,” it really does go by quick. Take the time to enjoy your life and remember what’s important. #September2Remember #donnalhsmith #timeflies Click to Tweet

The Augustness of August—Part III

Where I live in Pennsylvania, the weather in late August begins to cool and I spend time out on my back porch. It’s a large screened-in porch with both an eating and sitting area. I love those days when I can spend the whole day out there. There’s such peace. This photo was taken four years ago. The aftermath of a birthday party. Unlike the Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer. @donnalhsmith #AugustnessofAugust #NatKingCole #LazyHazyCrazyDaysofSummer

The Augustness of August—Part II

I just can’t help myself! A sweet little romantic song from my “era” of the 60s-70s was “Summer Song” by Chad and Jeremy. When I thought of different songs having to do with summer, of course this one crossed my mind. I’ll have Nat King Cole next week. #AugustnessofAugust #donnalhsmith

The Augustness of August—Part I

August. Hot, hazy, humid here in Pennsylvania. But it’s a great month. I was born in August. My birthday is this week. Here’s a hint as to how old I am… #AugustnessofAugust #donnalhsmith

Freedom’s Fireworks for July—Part V

Nike’s slogan “Just Do It.” But many of us may not know what we are to “do.” Do what? We live in an era of freedom to choose what we “do” with our lives? What job we do and where we work. Where we live. Although some may argue their options in life have been limited, I say, that’s happened to me, too. But I’m free to choose another direction. Another way. #FreedomsFireworks4July #donnalhsmith #IndependenceDayJuly4 #Free2DO
