National Beer day.

National Beer Day is observed annually on April 7th.  Celebrate with a pint of pale ale, lager, stout, wheat beer or pale ale. Beer is the world’s most widely consumed alcoholic beverage.  Following water and tea, it is the third most popular drink overall. This is what I have to say about that! All is [...]

Happy Birthday, Bob Tischler

Today is my brother’s birthday. Bob is a great guy. My siblings have always been important to me, but once you have no parents on the planet, that bond becomes even stronger. From the day I got home from the hospital, until now, thanks for being an awesome brother! Happy Birthday, Brubby! I love you! [...]

Maya Angelou

Today is Maya Angelou’s heavenly birthday.  Maya Angelou is my favorite female poet.  If you are not familiar with Maya’s work, here are a few of my favorite Maya quotes. “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” [...]

National Reconciliation day.

Today is National Reconciliation day. This is a day intended to patch up relationships.  Misunderstandings, unintended words or actions and simply an unforgiven mistake can tear apart relationships.  National Reconciliation Day is the time to take that step and make amends.  It’s not too late.  Reach out to that friend or loved one and make [...]

Happy Easter.

Happy Easter! Easter means many things to people.  As a child, it was a day that we sold flowers at “Tischler Flower Market” located on the corner at my grandmother’s house in Mt. Oliver.  I found a hidden basket, got a new dress and hat and went to Mass. In later years, with my own [...]

Seven years an angel.

Seven years ago today my son walked out the front door, smiling and laughing.  I don’t know why, but I turned around from where I was sitting to watch him.  My last words to him, “I love you, Jody.”  That was the last time I saw my boy alive. A part of my heart died [...]

My Birthday.

Today is my birthday. I am 58. While some may moan and groan about another year of aging, I embrace them.  They are a gift. We are blessed with each year.  Yes, I think my face tells a story, as the song goes, that life hasn’t always been easy.  Each line and wrinkle are distinctly [...]

Find your peace.

Life happens so quickly. One minute all is well, then next we are faced with a change or a challenge. A huge decision or a death. Slow down. Take a lot of deep breaths. Find time during the chaos to sit quietly. Ask for help and guidance. Find your peace.    

The 90 percent.

Yesterday I talked about my not so great experience with my doctors. I talked about my health. Today I want to talk about the other 90 percent of my life. It is said and proven that what we give our attention to, we attract more of. So, I don’t want to give my attention to [...]
