Notice I did not say the fastest way to find Mr. Right, but the best way. Now, I have been divorced twice, so you may not want to take advice from me. I will say that I have learned a lot from the mistakes I’ve made. And I learned something very valuable after two failed … More The Best Way to Find Mr. Right
As Father’s Day comes to a close, I am thinking about all the fathers in my life. My son, who is celebrating his second Father’s Day, has a baby girl who simply adores him. I am proud of the dad he is, especially because he didn’t really have a role model. When I was a … More When You’re Right, You’re Right
I walk nearly every day. While I’m walking, I listen to personal growth mp3’s, webcasts, podcasts, or radio programs. As I walk and listen, I frequently begin composing my blog post for the day, often unintentionally. Tonight was no different. Today was my youngest son’s 12th birthday. Although all children go through things as they … More Thriving With Autism

I look in the mirror and see a few grey hairs, lines that weren’t there before, and the toll that gravity has taken. In my body, the aches and pains whisper. Sometimes they scream. Scars. Some on the inside… some without. And I’m here. I have breath and life and love. I am grateful.
Growing up in an alcoholic home, peace was something I didn’t get to experience much. Even if things were quiet, I perpetually anticipated a coming storm. I didn’t understand this about myself until I was in my early forties. I recreated this constant sense of dread by marrying an alcoholic… and this was the least … More Peace Along Your Path
Today’s Daily Prompt, “Happy Endings”, from The Daily Post asked that we reflect on a time when we tried to quit something. It brought to mind the struggle I faced a couple of years ago with trying to quit a job. I was extremely unhappy, as were many of the people with which I worked. … More Happy Ending
“You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t even matter.
