Happy October 1st – About Words of Encouragement

Happy October 1st – About Words of Encouragement

Welcome to Words of Encouragement!   Happy October 1st to all! I must apologize for my absence since my last post on the first day of fall…other obligations of higher priorities kept me away from blogging, so now as I “fall” back into blogging 🙂  I thought I would re-introduce the back story and purpose of this blog (can also be found on my About page). ~~*~~ I decided to revise this blog, which was originally my very first blog…

What Would YOU Like to Learn About Here?

What Would YOU Like to Learn About Here?

I admit it: I’m a lifelong learner and an advocate of online learning, in particular. I don’t think anyone is ever too old to learn new things.  I mean, really, I earned my M.Ed. degree at the age of 50 – with a 4.0 GPA!

Relationship, not Religion

Relationship, not Religion

First of all, I apologize for my sporadic blogging over the past few months – as I summarized in my post last month, I’ve had a number of major life events take place. I’ve also discovered that grieving takes a lot out of you, in every way. Now I’m trying to get back on track, as I was really enjoying creating new blogs and blogging on a regular basis before things went a bit haywire around May.  It’s again a…
