Gayle Boles

I am a firm believer in the idea that life is an exciting adventure. It all depends on the attitude that I choose to have.

I have been a therapist for close to 30 years and was a school teacher for a while. I had the misfortune to have a stroke when I was 30 years old, which left me with a few limitations.

I think my mission in life is to personify the believe that life is an adventure. My imagination is my most valued gift. It has helped me keep life exciting. I love to absorb the atmosphere of the places I visit & visualize the historical events that have occurred. Please join me in my adventures.

Joy Unbound

It literally amazes me how we can be touched by grace at such unexpected times. Something happened a couple of months ago that is still warming my heart.

On the way to church, I drive through a lovely neighborhood with a park and pretty pond on the south side of the street. Well, the other day I came to the stop sign where the crosswalk leads into the park and there was this cute little girl, probably seven years old, waiting to cross the street. She had a really darling little black & white puppy with her. I smiled at them and motioned for them to go ahead and cross. She, with the puppy dancing along beside her on a leach, started the trek across the street.

Suddenly she stopped mid-stride and turned to me, with a big smile on her face, and threw me a kiss. They then continued on their merry way to their next adventure. That little gesture was so cute and sweet that it continues to bring me joy every time I stop at that sign. It was like a hug from God.
