A snowy start.

Well, I am up early, showered and ready to go. John just sent me a text that he made it to work, but that the words were getting bad. It is snowing. Schools are on a delay. I just checked the status of our flight and it is delayed. Ugh. Sadie and I are heading [...]

Signs from Joe.

I don’t usually watch Dr. Oz. A few days ago I was turning the television off when I heard him talking to a guest about her near death experience. My ears perked up and I watched her story. The woman mentioned that her heart had stopped for more than two minutes. During that time she [...]

George Washington

Today is President’s day. One of my favorite George Washington quotes is, “Let your heart feel for the afflictions and distress of everyone, and let your hand give in proportion to your purse.” It sounds like George was not only an honest man, but kind and generous as well. Enjoy your day.  

The Legends.

Last night John and I went out to dinner for Valentine’s day. John chose a place that we have been wanting to go to for a very long time. He chose The Legends Eatery of the North Shore. The Legends is owned by a lovely family from our neighborhood. When Joe started high school he [...]

Abe Lincoln

I missed Abe Lincoln’s birthday. Abraham Lincoln is my favorite president.  I love quotes.  Many of my favorites come from Abe Lincoln.  Here are a few: “People are as happy as they make their mind up to be.” “Whatever you are, be a good one.” “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we [...]

My Valentine.

  It has been 31 years since I first fell in love with Johnny. We have been through a lot together. Too much, actually. When I think of myself, I can’t even imagine life without him. I think that when God knew what His plan was for me, He put Johnny in my path. He [...]

Your family

I saw the following quote: I think we have a tendency to bring out the worst in ourselves with the ones we love the most. Think about that. Our temper is shortest and we are the easiest to anger with our families. Well, that needs to stop. Tomorrow is Valentine’s day. Show your family how [...]

The Four Agreements.

I am a huge fan of Don Miguel Ruiz and his book, The Four Agreements.  If you are only going to read one book this year, read this one.  If everyone lived their lives by implementing The Four Agreements, the world would be a much better place. More than a few people have mentioned to me lately [...]

Back to writing.

I have gotten lazy. For many years, each morning I got up, rolled out of bed, and wrote my first thoughts of the day down in my blog. Over the last few months it has not been a daily thing for me. Writing is good for me. Period. Honestly, over the last eight years I [...]

A wonderful day!

I went to bed last night at 10:00. I had a long day. I was up and out the door by 7:30. I spent my day with two of my youngest friends. I spent the day with my niece, Katie’s children. I played with cars, Shopkins and bingo. I watched the movie Cars 3 and [...]
