Book Club

I had a book club meeting last night. We gathered around drinks and dinner. We discussed the book, laughed and cried. It was a wonderful night!    

Four Agreements

One of my favorite books is The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. If we all lived by these four statements, daily, it would be a very different world. I read it at least once a year. I work hard to implement the agreements into my life. If you haven’t read it, do so. If [...]

Believe them.

I always liked Maya Angelou. This is one of my favorite quotes. Sometimes this is hard to do. We always want to see the best in people. Especially our friends and family. At one point or another in our lives someone shows us who they are.  Through their actions or even their words, they are [...]

A simple prayer.

This is a time of new beginnings for many people. This is also a time of uncertainty for others. I love this simple prayer. I think it is a good one for right now, for everyone. A Prayer by St. Teresa of Ávila Let nothing disturb you, Nothing frighten you; All things are passing; God [...]

A great afternoon.

John, Sadie and I spent yesterday afternoon in Highland Park. When we have the chance, we like to find a new neighborhood and enjoy lunch and the local stores. We had lunch at Park Bruge. It is a Belgian restaurant and we all loved our food. We then visited a little shop, Flatboat Fair Traders. [...]

Changing season.

While summer is my favorite season, I do love all that autumn brings. I love the changing leaves, cooler temperatures and pumpkins. I think I [...]

Everything is going to be okay.

I woke up this morning with peace in my heart. I am grateful. Yes, my hands are stiff and my whole body aches. That’s every morning. Today is different. Today I having a knowing that everything is going to be okay. I just love that sentence. Everything is going to be okay. Say that out [...]

Friends.

Over the weekend I saw my friend that I worked with in 1988. Yesterday I had lunch with my childhood friend that I do not get to see nearly enough. Wow. It has been a great couple of days! If you haven’t connected with your friends from the past, do it! I know we all [...]

Eclipse.

Yesterday 80% of the sun was blocked by the moon. I was fortunate enough to be able to watch it with my girl. John put me on the hunt for appropriate glasses. Two people came through for us and we ended up each having a pair. John sent me this. Sadie and I took this. [...]
