Time with mama.

It is early. Thankfully it did not snow last night. John will be taking me, my sister and my mama to the airport in an hour. We are heading south. We are fortunate. Spending a few weeks with my mama will be a blessing. If you still have your mama, give her a call today. [...]

May God bless and keep you always.

I just watched the last episode of Parenthood. After six seasons the show is ending. I have enjoyed this family, every week, as they came into my living room. Their stories always touched my heartstrings. The show was in it’s third season when I began watching it. I binge watched seasons one and two. It [...]

Why we are here.

I saw this quote yesterday. I love it and had to share. “We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to love….and then we return home.” – Austrailian Aboriginal Proverb. Live your purpose today.  

A great day.

The sky is blue and the sun is shining! Anything is possible today. If you are reading this you were given the gift of another day. How blessed! Isn’t that a great way to think? ¬†Ask for whatever you want. Then expect it. Every day is a miracle. What are you going to do with [...]

White memories.

I’m sitting at my dining room table with a view of the street and my neighbor’s house. Although I doubt we will see the sun, it is slowly becoming daylight. I can see that it is snowing because the flakes are illuminated by our lamp post. It is beautiful. This is our first big snowfall [...]

Spontaneous Joy.

I hope that these guys are on my flight this Saturday. I love spontaneous joy! Happy Monday!  

Thank you.

Yesterday was a good day. John and I went to Barnes & Noble, REI and the movies. We saw Birdman which was a great movie. Michael Keaton definitely deserves being an Academy Award contender. While in Barnes & Noble I received a few texts talking about my morning blog. Friends who were checking on me [...]

How is your son, Joe?

It is 3:00 a.m. I can’t sleep. Fortunately, I rarely have rough days anymore. I may have a difficult moment here and there, but overall, I am good.¬†Yesterday was a rough day for me. Although I have only had about 3.5 hours of sleep I am wide awake. It snowed since I went to bed. [...]

Mailbox surprise.

I received a text from a friend. She told me to look in my mailbox. This is what I found. Wow. So very nice of her. She said that she was in a store, saw this wallet and thought of me and my boy, Joe. A “Joe” wallet, and it was purple. Many people know [...]


Yesterday was National Hug Day. I can’t believe I missed that. I am a bigger hugger. I have found that most people like being hugged. Did you know that hugging is good for you? Hugging and laughing (also a big favorite of mine) are extremely effective at healing sickness, disease, loneliness, depression, anxiety and stress. [...]
