Alphabet Soup – B


May you have a Bold, Brave, Beautiful, Bountiful, Blessed (*Birth) Day.

May your enemies be Benign.

*Birth is in parenthesis because only those who are like me will be having a birthday today. How clever that my day falls on the letter B.



This is for the A to Z Challenge I am offering words of encouragement.

The idea stems from a tradition I have with my youngest offspring.  We tell each other such things as “Have a…. Magnificent Monday, Terrific Tuesday, Wonderful Wednesday, Thoughtful Thursday, and Fantastic Friday. I will be using the alphabet to encourage you to have positive days.

I decided to add another element to this when I reflected on my last moments with my father before he passed away. Though he was not able to communicate with me, I knew he could hear me speak. I was at a loss for words, so I read psalms from his Bible. In each psalm there was a statement about God defeating our enemies. I was struck by the thought that my father didn’t have any enemies, as far as I knew.

Now, many years later, I have come to understand our enemy is anything we let hold us back from where we wish to be. Our enemy is fear among other things. With that in mind, I am going to add a word, or two, to help us shut down our enemies.


I am a dreamer who loves to explore the world through words. I hope to inspire others to live in peace and be their best selves. I also have an affinity for flamingos, gnomes, and all things magical. They live happily in my gardens.
