Surrender Don’t even try to get everything done that there is to do! Surrender! For your own mental health, admit it would take five lifetimes to do all that you would like to do, feel you need to do, promised someone you would do or, out of guilt, should do, even though you do not […]

It was a short romance, not even five months before he returned to the woman from whom he was separated, and I returned to thinking of him as the dear friend he was before the “romance.” I adore this man. He was always fun, always a good time, but in that short period of time, […]

Estate Planning Is More than Just a Will

| March 4, 2017 | 0 Comments

Not too long ago, I wrote about the most basic estate-planning tool: your will.

February, the love month, and just who do I love? Lately my six-year old granddaughter Mila is leading the pack. How can I not love her best when she answers questions like this: Me: “I have not seen you in a month, do you still remember me?” Her: “Of course I remember you, you’re my […]

| January 10, 2017 | 0 Comments

The practice of mindfulness encompasses the idea of living in the present moment and being acutely aware of your surroundings and focusing on things that matter. This involves taking control of how you view the world through observations of your surroundings and in turn how those observations create emotions that drive behaviors.

Extend Love Through a strange series of events, here were Adam and Eve live on the radio, 6 p.m. from the East Coast. The last caller had wondered why, when God said not to, Adam had taken a bite of the apple anyway. That act brought us choice and with that choice came sin and […]
