A Case For Sticking With It

Every day my gratitude grows and grows and grows, until it is squished so tightly in my heart that hardly any more gratitude can fit…….and what I am thankful for is that I did not give up. Because it was a close one. I almost did….lots of times…lots and lots and lots of times. And […]

We Must See Past What It Seems

After a dear friend telling me about a hurtful experience she’d had this week…..I began thinking again about a story I have told a few times….a story that my children will tell to their children, and maybe even beyond that… because it was such a learning experience in our family….maybe even a turning point…it’s a […]

Sacred Yes – Think Before You Say It

I like the whole “word of the year” thing that so many of us do at the beginning of each year.

Our Strengths Define Us

Before I get started….I am going to tell you some good things about me. I am fun….and I am funny. I am super creative and I love to be happy. I am a fiercely loyal and protective wife and mother and I would go to the ends of the earth to make sure that my […]

This is another one for all of you beautiful dreamers, creatives…makers, artists, visionaries…musicians…writers….mothers…gardeners…friends…lovers…..PEOPLE. It is in ALL of us.

God Bless You, Steve

Something happened tonight that showed me just how much of a shift in perception and heart I had while I was in Manila….something really happened to me there. A big cracking open and a huge healing up…..I am different. I feel whole….more whole….I feel expanded and smooshed all at the same time. Cracked and glued […]

I Am the Girl in the Red Boots

I want to talk about something that has long been on my heart. This has been burned so deeply in my heart in the last year, that every day I almost choke on it because it is right in my throat…trying so hard to get me to speak up about it. So…..I want to talk […]
