cff THE MOVING PARTS OF LIFE | Simple and Serene Living

Life is made up of so many moving parts. As we grow older and make our way through this life, we know that there will be good parts and bad parts and we learn to weave them together.

We are living through a time on our planet that will be studied for generations to come. A global pandemic is not something that every generation lives through, but it is something that affects us all not only physically, but mentally.

As we weave our way through this world wide phenomenon we are also dealing with all of the personal things in our lives. Those things don't go away.

There are births and deaths, weddings and divorces, good health news and bad health news, and these events are all colored by the greater phenomenon of a pandemic. 

Monday I had an appointment with an oral surgeon because my tooth had fractured under a crown. The next available appointment they have for the extraction is August 24. I was hoping for the next week or two, but because of the pandemic specialists are really backed up.

We are living in a new normal, finding our way.

I think back on all of the changes in my life and how I have adjusted to them. I keep moving forward, weaving in and out through those changes, because the parts of life will always be moving.


  1. The pandemic has put everything behind. Not to mention the price of goods like lumber. We'll just have to go with the flow until things hopefully even out.

  2. I'm so sorry for your tooth. I hope it's not bothering you too much while you wait. And yes, things are forever changing and we struggle to keep up! Enjoy your day sweet lady!

  3. Yikes. That's a long time to wait. I'm so sorry. Total aside, your photos are fabulous and made me smile on a low day.

  4. You are so right.. so many twists and turns in our lives and things we don't expect to run into. Sorry for your tooth problem.. I had a crown that came off and had to wait a MONTH to get in and have it reseated.. and by then, there was decay setting in so had to have it pulled. If I could have gotten in sooner, they could have just reset the crown and I could have kept the tooth. some things just can't wait and should not wait! Take care.. enjoyed all of your photos by the way too.... xoxo Marilyn

  5. Maybe you can claim a cancellation before that date. Long wait is not easy.
