His Grace

His Grace

  I remember taking this picture in 2015, just a year after being diagnosed with facial paralysis. Frenchie took me on a trip between surgeries; funny I can’t remember where we were. We’ve been on so many trips together trying hard to mark everything off […]

Dr. Lettieri Post Op

Dr. Lettieri Post Op

This is the REAL Dr. Lettieri–my Flip Phone Doctor is back-with his Converse, humor and beautiful blue eyes. After assessing my bruising and clotting, we have decided to wait a couple of weeks to see how it looks-we are not afraid of the blood clots […]

Today has so much going for it, it’s here, it’s now and it belongs to you. This moment, right now is the only time that comes with a guarantee. Learn today to be kind to everyone– I attended an event today hoping I would take […]

Make Time

Make Time

In my life I have spent way too much time worrying about what other people think. When I finally decided that was a waste of my time I realized ‘those’ people are no longer in my life anyway. Time changes all things, we think when […]

Like a Tree

Like a Tree

I love this tree-a fews years ago I made a trip to St. Louis and this is what I saw.  Coming from Arizona we don’t get the chance to see this type of beauty-very rarely.  It reminded me of a tree my great grandmother had, […]
