I have food in my belly, medications to keep me healthy. I have family around me, friends who love… Continue reading Understanding the Anger

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

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

Lessons Learned

Today my daughter - Adelynn Grace, 5 years old - graduated from Kindergarten. I helped her get dressed and brought her outside, tears in my eyes and took a beautiful photo of her standing with the sunshine illuminating her. It was beautiful. Normally, I'm pretty tough. I honestly haven't shed many tears in the past… Continue reading Lessons Learned

This is an intimate story... a personal experience that just struck me as a profound example that everything truly does happen for a reason. In 2003 I went to the local bridal gown shop with my mom in late February. I had been dating my high school sweetheart for almost 2 years and we were… Continue reading The Pink Gown

Determined to See

Several years ago, I remember having a conversation with a few of my friends about our personalities. It came up for me, that I am a very stubborn and determined person. Those who know me are free to snicker... because to this I am guilty. It turns out that astrologically speaking, I am a Capricorn… Continue reading Determined to See
