A crossroad.

I know so many people who are at a crossroad in their life, myself included. I have a few ideas when I think about what I want to do with the rest of my life. In the past I would walk through my days with clenched fists, thinking I had control over what is next [...]

A great day.

Yesterday was the first time I got in the pool this year. Often, I like floating in my pool alone. I pray and feel closest to God when I am on a raft and floating in the pool. John and I spent yesterday swimming in the pool with our neighbors. Few clouds and a lot of [...]

Your first day.

It is June 28th. We are closer to the end of the year than we are to the beginning. Do you remember all of the enthusiasm that you had back in January? Excitement for change. A clean slate. Do you still remember the dreams you had for this year? We all make resolutions. Most are [...]

Why me?

We all have a story. We all have an inner voice that asks questions. We can ask the question, “Why me?” The answer will be, “Why not?” I was talking with a friend who was asking the question, “Why me?” Sure, she has had hard times and obstacles. Life hasn’t always been easy for her. [...]

Make yourself happy.

I just love Trader Joe’s. I was so happy they opened a store closer to my home. Driving to Penn Avenue, 20 miles away, was a pain in the butt. I love all of the flowers that I see as soon as I walk through the door. Since I have no plans to leave town, I [...]

Five biggest regrets.

I read a very interesting article yesterday. It was written by a palliative nurse. Her job was to care for patients who were in their final stage of life. One thing that she noticed is that people grow a lot when faced with their own mortality. Some changes are phenomenal. Each experienced a variety of emotions, [...]

Home.

I’m home! It was so wonderful to sleep in my own bed last night. I love going to Florida and then I love to come home.  Doubly blessed. Over the last few years coming home was bittersweet. I would have a reentry adjustment. Coming home meant seeing everywhere that Joe was not. Seeing his empty room and empty [...]

Homeward bound.

Well, this is it, time to go home. Sadie and I began cleaning the condo last night and will leave for the Orlando Airport at eleven. It has been wonderful spending time with friends and with Sadie, but now it is time to get back to reality. I feel like it has been a year since [...]

Bright future.

It is only eight o’clock, but I have already been to the Palm Beach Airport and back.  Lisa and Elizabeth are on their flight and flying north. It was a wonderful few days. I loved spending time with these wonderful friends and my own girl. I was taught a lot while in the company of these young [...]

Summer Solstice.

Today is the first day of summer. We are completing the summer solstice. Summer Solstice is not just the longest day of the year, it is also a time to celebrate the light of consciousness within ourselves, and the people around us. As the earth allows us more sunlight in our days, it is time [...]
