I think I shared this video last year. I just love it. It is so magical to me. This video speaks of possibilities. Let’s us feel that anything is possible. Tell someone you love them. Reconnect to those you haven’t spoken with in a while. wuz2ILq4UeA Happy Thursday.

Sexual harassment.

I woke up this morning to the news that Matt Lauer has been fired from NBC for inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace. The network’s action has been swift. They didn’t waste any time. Terminated. It is a day of reckoning for those who thought it was okay to sexually harass. It is certainly a [...]

Day of possibilities.

The sunrise is beautiful today. I hear a bird chirping in the tree outside. I love the sound of birds chirping. It doesn’t happen often this time of year. It is a day of possibilities. Waking up this morning is a blessing we all take for granted. I am grateful for my life. Life is [...]

It begins.

The season has begun.  Busy schedules, kid’s home from school, decorating, cooking, spending time with family, etc. etc. etc. STOP!  Take a deep breath.  Find a quiet corner in your house.  Maybe it is during the pre-dawn hour or late at night, but find a little time each day.  Sit quietly.  It is during that [...]

In the moment.

Well, we are back in the 412 at the 407. It was such a nice Thanksgiving. I love spending time with my Kimutis family. Sadly, it does not happen often enough.

The holidays.

We are heading back to Pittsburgh this morning. It was so nice spending time with family. We came from Salt Lake City, Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Fayetteville, NC. It is not often that we can gather as a family. It is a blessing when we can. The Christmas holiday is quickly approaching. Another time for [...]

Family fun.

It is great being in Virginia. Yesterday was great. Thanksgiving with family is the best. We got up early and went to the World Market store. Love that place. I was in search of new curtains for the family room. The trip was successful. No crazy black Friday shopping for us. We have another full [...]


We are in Virginia with family for the holiday. We are giving thanks for these wonderful people. John and Sadie were up early and are out enjoying a run in our nation’s capital. I am blessed. I hope that wherever you are this day, that you, too, are feeling blessed and loved. I am thankful [...]

David Cassidy.

David Cassidy died yesterday. His photos covered my childhood bedroom walls. I loved the Partridge family. David Cassidy is a wide thread that is woven through my youth. He was my first crush. I even had my hair cut in the long shag style. When my children were small I would sing “I think I [...]

Blessed Mother.

Today is the feast day of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Some people say that it is the day that Mary passes in front. I prayed a lot to Mary right after Joe died. I prayed that somehow she could help me to survive. I know it may sound silly, but I knew [...]
