Bella Grace


My new copy of Bella Grace arrived in the mail today. It is such a special magazine and always brings me joy when I read contributions of poetry, stories, photography and snippets of wisdom.

And what better place to sit and read it on a great day than my very favorite place...my porch swing. As I sit listening to the chimes and feeling the gentle breeze blowing I first turn through all the pages reading the quotes and looking at the great pictures. Then I go back and randomly pick parts to read....81 ways to feel like a kid again, summer troubles we secretly love, 75 touchstones of happiness.

Each article provokes thought. Such as...what are you doing now that you loved to do as a kid? Do you indulge in kids play? How could you find more childhood joy?

As older adults it is sometimes hard to let yourself go without restraint. I intend to do more fun things but don't always follow through. Each year I swear that I will go on more picnics and slow down and relax.

This summer I am making a vow to do some of the things on my bucket list. How about you? What is on your list?

  1. Right now my bucket list is just to be at home and relax a little. After a year of almost nonstop travel, I really appreciate being home. I'm just a couple of weeks short of being retired five years ~ and I still haven't slowed down much. I'm beginning to think it is not in my nature. Love those gorgeous bird pillows on your swing! Have a lovely day!
