Love Thyself

I'm a pretty easy going lady and I truly appreciate thoughtful gestures. This year, for Valentines Day I asked my husband to create a playlist for me - something he used to do years ago and had a real talent for. As I was cooking dinner for the two of us on Valentines Day he… Continue reading Love Thyself

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

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

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.

We Have Everything, We Have Nothing

I  made a new friend this week. Pretty cool right? Several weeks ago, an existing friend handed me a business card that belonged to one of her colleagues. You need to contact her she told me. I was kind of surprised, but I took down the woman's email address and composed a draft email to… Continue reading We Have Everything, We Have Nothing

After 100 Days

In December, I wrote a blog about writing a letter to Santa Claus. Some people probably thought I was nuts, fair enough. However... I took that act pretty seriously, and more important was what I asked for for Christmas last year. There were 2 things. A new laptop... And a better relationship and understanding of… Continue reading After 100 Days

Happy Easter 🙂 I spent a lovely sunny Sunday with my family today enjoying all of the normal Easter traditions... eggs, chocolate, sweets and good company. As my husband and I drove down to my moms house today we began talking a bit about Easter and some of the pagan traditions and beliefs. I grew… Continue reading Rebirth
