Congestion

For several weeks I have been battling a cold that has manifested into a full blown sinus infection. Last week, over the phone, my mother advised that I should head to urgent care and request an antibiotic for this one. Moms know best and I took my sweet time listening to her advice. Then on… Continue reading Congestion

Understanding the Anger

On the surface, I look like a pretty happy person. I have a wonderful life, children and a husband that I love, and that love me unconditionally. I have happy animals, a sweet and comfortable home. I have food in my belly, medications to keep me healthy. I have family around me, friends who love… Continue reading Understanding the Anger

I Can Do This!

I started snowboarding when I was 16 years old. I had never skied or really did anything in the snow with the exception of some sledding in my younger years. I could tell you horror stories about my first year learning to ride a snowboard, but in time... I began to get more comfortable and… Continue reading I Can Do This!

Please Slow Down

Happy New Year friends! It's 2019... are you all still with me?? I don't know about you guys but the last few weeks of 2018 had my head spinning. In early December I was second guessing myself quite a bit because of a decision I had made in the early fall months. I had signed… Continue reading Please Slow Down

Deep Gratitude

As we move into the next few weeks, we are faced with a choice... we can focus on all that we have, or we can fall into the trap of accumulating. The Holidays are upon us, and many are torn as they look at the future and wonder how things will work out. Today I… Continue reading Deep Gratitude

Appreciation for the Sun

I picked my daughter up from school on Friday in a cold wintry mess. There was a cross between snow, slush and rain falling from the sky and it reminded me that winter is on its way in. Such is life in upstate New York! However cold and gross last week was though, the weekend… Continue reading Appreciation for the Sun

20 Minutes

Last week I walked into my house after a long day at school where I work as a 2nd grade Teacher Aide. I had both of my small children (2 and 6 years old) in tow and I was extremely close to exploding. I will be honest... as much as I enforce morning time for… Continue reading 20 Minutes

Through the Pain

Last week I sat with a good friend and read her Tarot cards. One of the cards she pulled was really tough. So many people are afraid of The Devil card, or the Death card... just not fully understanding the message that comes with them... the transition that Death brings, the empowerment that comes from… Continue reading Through the Pain

The Ride of Your Life

At 8:55 am last Wednesday, my husband Jeramie and I stood in a long line of excited thrill seekers waiting to get on a brand new roller coaster at Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky Ohio... a mecca for roller coaster enthusiasts. About 18 hours earlier, as we drove around the peninsula that the park… Continue reading The Ride of Your Life

6 Years Ago

My oldest daughter, Adelynn Grace, turns 6 tomorrow. As  I was sitting in my morning meditation I flashed back on my life 6 years ago and felt the urge to share. My family had rented a camp up on the lake we've been going to since I was a baby. It was the last day… Continue reading 6 Years Ago
