Celebrate Everything You Have Done For You this Weekend! Love Yourself

 I was listening to one of my favorite Motivational authors/speakers , Lisa Nichols this morning and she was talking about the first love relationship is one that you have with yourself. Funny, how we are never taught that as we grow up and out into the world. It's always about finding love from some external source, our parents, our friends, boyfriends, husbands, wives. As I listened, Lisa said, this weekend, sit down and write all those things that you have done in your life that should be celebrated. I started to write and there are several things that I am [...]

Let this be our Prayer today

 Let this be our Prayer today...God, unite our country once again as we did that horrible day in our nation's history, 19 years ago today.As we all stood watching , all of us, no matter what we look like - we stood and watched. We all know where we were, where our loved ones were. We all , all of us stood watching , not just that morning, but throughout the day as men and women , policemen, firemen, clergy,  the average person wanting to help- fought the flames to save their fellow man.  We didn't care about politics, race, it didn't [...]

Just Show Up for Your Friends and Family

Today's blog post speaks deep into my heart. A very dear and close friend has died. I am somewhat speechless yet feel compelled to write this. Perhaps in dedication to him, to his family, to all of us on this planet who hold friends and family deep in our hearts.This friend , who name was David. No last name needs to be mentioned. He was a kind man who was very successful in life. Yes, in terms of wealth, but perhaps more importantly in terms of his success in raising wonderful children and being a loyal and dedicated friend, a [...]

Christmas 2019 from Hospice Care to Toddler Care

Christmas Tree 2019    This Christmas has been an interesting one. I found myself being a Hospice nurse to my sweet, beautiful cat Bella until the day she passed away on December 13th and then a new mom, to the cutest little baby boy, who I named Nicholas for St. Nick , a week afterwards. I had thought this year would be filled with days of cookie baking, my best year decorating yet and wrapping all the gifts with pretty ribbons and bows, handmade with each family member and friend in mind .It didn't quite go as I had planned and I really [...]

A Cat with Cancer, Hoping for my own “Mrs. Miracle” and a Miracle this Christmas

It's my favorite time of year , the time where we focus on giving to others, to adopting families, to buying gifts for our family friends, sharing food and decorating our Christmas trees, baking cookies. And endless Hallmark Holiday movies! I love everything about this Holiday , this year however, I have a wrinkle in my Holiday preparation days.Taking care of a cat with a cancer diagnosis. Some odd mass in the "mesentary", which is in the abdomen.  How could this have happened? My little girl, Bella, so sweet, so full of love. She and I lost her brother in [...]

There is No Tomorrow

It's Monday morning and I am proud to say that I am starting my second week of 5:45 am workouts! No, it isn't easy . It's dark outside and the weather isn't friendly. But, I am using my pent up energy and emotions to drive myself to do something positive. When I feel this way, workouts always fuel me back to center. I am determined to get my fitness life back on track and heal a wounded heart. So many of my life's dreams have been on hold for one reason or another. But no more. The rocky movies always [...]

Believe in Yourself, Listen to Your Own Truth

 These words came to mind this morning as I sat quietly preparing for my day.I have had a few sleepless nights and very early 5:45 am work outs.My body is tired and my heart is trying to heal..Yet, I listen to that still small voice inside of me that says..Believe in Yourself, Listen to Your Own Truth, ..not anyone elses..So many times in life we are presented bumps in the road that come unexpectedly..We doubt, we question, we get angry and we hurt..The tears come... for so many reasons..Disappointment , loss, dreams not yet realized..The tears dry at least for [...]

A letter to my Mother on Mother’s Day

Today is Mother's Day. Over the last few weeks, as I strolled through boutiques during my trip to Virginia, I stumbled upon Mothers day gifts and cards. I let my hand touch them, feel them, stopping  for only a few  seconds to think of you. I didn't dwell long as I knew the tears would come, like they are now. During this trip, I looked out my brothers kitchen window each morning and saw the many cardinals that flew in to feast on the bird seed my sister-in-law put out for them. And I thought of you.Emily Dickenson note cards spoke [...]

Authentic Happiness

 I reunited with a favorite book of mine this morning, Simple Abundance by Sara Ban Breathnach - a find from a friend long ago. It is a book of daily musings and inspirations . This book has been my companion for so many years giving me comfort and thoughts to ponder on my life's journey. In fact, this book has meant so much to me that I have given it as gifts to friends on so many special occasions.I flipped to a random page that happened to be in July. The subject was living a life of dreaming or expectations, [...]

A Friends Visit at 3am

I have been so touched by this since the day it happened that I truly needed to share it. You probably think that this would be a story of a friend who knocked on my door unexpectedly out of the clear blue.But no , that isn't what happened.A long lost lover ?No.Instead this is a story about true friendship, love , caring.Last weekend I came down with THE WORST stomach flu that I can remember. It came out of nowhere after having a wonderful evening with a dear friend of mine downtown.I literally threw up almost every hour starting at [...]
