Reorganized Lives

Hi Friends and Family,

I hope you are happy, healthy and hopeful.  

All three Triangle Park girls are living reorganized lives regarding Covid-19…as best we can.   I’m sharing mine in this blog and please check out:  to read what Savanna and Diana are doing in their reorganized lives, or click their respective links at the end of this post.  

Here’s what’s new in my humble bubble:

  1. EXTRA Prayer Time –  Before Covid-19 I prayed every day.  But, admittedly, the time I spent praying was never as much as I could have . Afterall, I’m always busy-busy like the rest of the world.  But nowadays, “busy” is a useless excuse.  Who doesn’t have time to pray [more] in our reorganized, new reality lives?

  2. Food Delivery to 90-year-old – I love to cook delicious, healthy food so life hasn’t changed much in this regard.  But I’m cooking more meals per week and delivering portions to my mom in Sandy Springs.  Mom cooks three meals a day but thoroughly enjoys when I bring her goodies.  

  3. Home Hair Cuts – I’ve cut my own hair for the past four months and, oh lawd, am I a happy camper doing so!  I’ve also given Diana a haircut and this past weekend coiffed Jeff’s hair on the back deck. The artist in me enjoys the process and, if I do say so myself, I’m pretty good at it.

  4. Scant – Zero Alcohol – Drinking alcohol isn’t a priority or big desire for me. But, knowing that a tip-top immune system will help ward off Covid, I’ve kissed alcohol goodbye.  I do, however, look forward to my favorite custom-made margarita at Taqueria Del Sol in the not-to-distant future.

  5. Learning to Make Videos – With extra idle time in my reorganized life, I’ve finally become motivated to enter the world of adding videos to my website.  Speaking to a camera is awkward but when you envision the friends and family you’re directing messages to it’s quite easy and fun. 

That’s it folks.  I recommend all five of my daily life adjustments.  You may not have an elderly mother to deliver food to, but cooking and eating healthy will help you get through this mess.  Let me know if you’d like hair cutting tips.  I have quite a salon set up at home, and I’d also love to share tips I’ve learned [the hard way] about making videos, even though I’m still not very good. 

Clearly, I’m still a work in progress with video production as you’ll see from the attached video.  In it, I share things I/we’re doing to reach out to others. If you’re interested in any of the above email me at:

You may or may not recall that I’m working on a portrait drawing.  Here it is thus far:

Prayer: Dear Lord, We come to you broken, helpless.  Have mercy on us. Forgive us our selfishness, ego-driven motivation, our navel-gazing.  Help us to listen and learn from your Word and omniscience. We don’t have you, Lord, you have us and for that we are thankful.

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” … “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.” Psalm 91
