Where The Rubber Hits The Road

30 Days of goodness: Day 5

Leave a comment

Today was a rough day in the Angelo house. My youngest is struggling with depression and the isolation is just intensifying her feelings. I feel useless in these times, knowing there’s little I can do to help. We press on. We continue to love and take care of each other the best we can. And continue to look for goodness.

On the home front

We’re about to start a Twilight marathon, which is always good for a laugh.

I had the foresight to buy chocolate ice cream and wine.

A trip to the grocery store was made safer by my friend who gave us some gloves, thank you Mindy!



The shirt I ordered finally came. A good reminder that being fragile doesn’t mean that you are weak!

Inspiration for the day


Troubled? Then stay with me, for I’m not.


A thousand naked amorous ones dwell in ancient caves

beneath my eyelids.


Here’s a pick,

My whole body is an emerald that begs,

“Take me”.

Write all that worries you on a piece of parchment;

offer it to God.

Even from the distance of a millennium

I can lean the flame in my heart

into your life

and turn all that frightens you

into holy





Remember that you are loved and you matter!
