Forgiveness

Parenthood

Parenthood

I love this picture of Frenchie (Papa) with 5 of the 7 grandchildren–the joy on his face was priceless.  Most of you have probably heard this “Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad.” I think this is a […]

Forgiveness

Forgiveness

I’ve been asked by several people “How did you learn to forgive?” This question has caused me to really think about the process of forgiveness. I’m not quite certain there is a ‘one size fits all’ answer to this question. When you are hurt by […]

Mother’s

Mother’s

  What is it about Mother’s that make us celebrate and dedicate an entire day to them?  I loved being pregnant, was sleep deprived when they were infants, frustrated when they were toddlers and spent a lot of time on my knees when they became teenagers. […]

Beauty

Beauty

Tale as old as time? Perhaps, with a few modern changes. I’ve always loved the original animated movie. Kaitlyn was obsessed with watching. She’d wake up every morning, I’d hear the pitter patter of her little feet running as fast as she could to ask […]

Today

Today

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 […]

Embrace

Embrace

My friend is dealing with some really hard things in her life right now. It’ amazing to me how much the human body and soul can endure.  For me, going through a divorce or losing a child would be really hard.  While enjoying lunch with […]

The skinny on skinny

The skinny on skinny

  Me and Taryn, dinner before the show. The truth is skinny does not equal happiness or health.  I am the thinest I’ve been since my twenties, I’m also the most unhealthy I have ever been.  I know friends who with age have gained weight–it […]

Imagine

Imagine

In my opinion one of the most powerful words in the English language is Imagine; this single word gives hope to a world that is in so much turmoil.  Of all the songs John Lennon wrote and performed, many of which have had tremendous impact on our […]

Surgery March 28th Dr. Lettieri

Surgery March 28th Dr. Lettieri

I had a hard time sleeping last nigh with only 3 hours before surgery I at least tried.  I’m not anxious about the surgery or Dr. Lettieri. Again this morning  doctors and nurses all had positive things to say about him. One nurse said  “Oh […]
