Wicked, For Good and Joe.

Since Joe died, nearly seven (wow, hard too believe) years ago, people have told us that the song For Good from the Broadway show Wicked, reminded them of Joe. I first heard this at the funeral home. I looked up the lyrics and as Joe’s mama, I was proud. They are powerful words… I’ve heard [...]

Another day.

I woke up this morning. I am thankful. 89,000 people die in their sleep every night. If you are reading this, you, too, woke up this morning. Today is a gift to you. Make it a good one.  


Life is about balance. I have never been really good at managing balance. This past week I was very busy with work. I worked every day and for a long time. My job is very hard on my hands, so, by Friday they were swollen and my shoulders ached. Yesterday, I spent the day on [...]

Infrared Sauna.

Monday morning. This is a good day to spend and hour in an infrared sauna. I am blessed to have a wonderful friend who let’s me pop over to her house and enjoy the benefits of her sauna. Speaking of benefits, here are a few. If you have the opportunity to use an infrared sauna, [...]

Tea time.

I received this photo today. Sadie has always loved tea. When she found out she was going to London with her Aunt Kathi, having tea was on her to do list. I love that she is seeing and doing so many wonderful things. Nothing makes me happier than having a happy kid.
