It’s Time

Happy New Year to you. I pray you have left the past in the past. We don’t need to take anger, resentment, grief, sadness, jealousy, and toxic folks into the new year. I pray that our vision boards are filled with words like compassion, love, forgiveness, gratitude, and joy, and that our goals are toContinue reading “It’s Time”

I opened a Christmas card today from one of my favorite social media influencers. I dedicate this to her today. Dearest Stephanie, I must admit I just now opened your beautiful Christmas card.

Not Tree Gifts but Need Gifts

It’s not the most wonderful time of the year for everyone. For many if not the majority it’s a time of pain due to grief.

Children cry and complain over the simplest things and as adults, we know a lot of times it’s not that serious and within minutes the child has forgotten about it by being distracted by something wonderful. Sometimes that inner child in usContinue reading “Something to Cry About”
