Thankful for Small Acts of Kindness

Today I am thankful for small acts of kindness.  Every act of kindness is like ripples on water, the effects are far reaching and potentially endless.  I am thankful I am healthy and can offer a helping hand to the elderly if they need it at times.  I am happy to open a door for… Read More ›

Be Thankful – Start With Today!

Today is the beginning of November.  The past few months have been a roller coaster of emotion, grief, odd events and illnesses, and a few bouts of chaos.  Enough already! I like to take the month of November to remember things to be thankful for.   It is the month to celebrate Thanksgiving and I can’t think… Read More ›

Just a Reminder

  Though the path seems dark, be sure that the sun will shine again. When things seem to be falling apart, realize that they are just falling into place. We don’t always get what we want, Yet we usually have what we need. Take a moment to be thankful for yet another day, another opportunity, another… Read More ›

Happy Mother’s Day

Mother’s day is a holiday that became official in 1914, and is not celebrated all over the world.  Why not, being a mother should be celebrated and enjoyed.  My mom was an older mother.  She wanted to be a mom all of her life, it was something she yearned for from the moment she got… Read More ›

Renewal, Reflection and A New Outlook

April seems to have become a time of reflection for me.  A time to look back and see where I’ve been, decisions I’ve made, the result of those decisions, and a time for renewal.  My parents were born in the 1920’s and as most from that generation were, they were very conservative and extremely overprotective… Read More ›

Easter Is Coming!!

People Watching

I occasionally work on the weekends doing demonstrations and handing out samples at Target.  I started working this job for several reasons: extra money, meeting new people, expanding my horizons by doing something different, and my favorite thing – people watching. Today I was handing out the Lindt Lindor milk chocolate bunny samples.  They were tiny… Read More ›

A Dark Christmas

There are times in this life when the path grows dark and uncertain and the only choice is to keep walking, keep going, suck up your courage and keep trudging through the darkness.  It’s not a fun time, in fact there are times when it’s gut wrenching, painful and the sadness and hurt will literally bring… Read More ›

Lindsey vs. Santa – Gotta Love Christmas!

This is a story about my lovely, youngest daughter Lindsey.   My sister-in-law – Jamie once said (of Lindsey) – “That kid just oozes personality.”  I don’t think I will ever hear of a better description of Lindsey.  She did then and she still does “ooze personality.”  She is, like her sister, a completely different individual, who has from… Read More ›

Promises To Myself – 2011 Wrap-Up

It’s that time of year again.  Each year right after Thanksgiving I set aside some time for self-reflection and goal setting until the end December.  I look at the things I’ve accomplished and what I can finish up before the end of the year.  It’s a rewarding time to look back and see how far… Read More ›
