Digital Fatigue…

Everything that I must access is currently found on the Information Highway otherwise known as the Internet. Internet use to be... Continue Reading →

Lessons during Quarantine…

Letting go requires self-control. Read that again...slowly. By definition, self-control requires -restraint exercised over one's own impulses, emotions, or desires. When we let something go, when we release control of all things, self-control must take front and center.  In our human nature, when we let things go, we panic, fear sets in, and we immediately...

My words…have traveled​!

On May 8, 2017, I posted my very first blog.  Little did I know that those words would travel the world.  My intention for the blog is to inspire, educate, and entertain.  Have I achieved that these past two years, I would hope so?  I desire to always leave the reader with a new perspective....

My heart grew twice…

    Paul was barely a few days old.  Due to being a premie, he was not allowed to be out of the NICU for very long, and I wanted Rob to meet and hold his baby brother. As I gently placed Paul in Rob’s arms, I asked him, “how do you feel?” and immediately he said, “my... Continue Reading →

Take off the mask…

Depression: “feelings of severe despondency and dejection.” I was depressed, and I didn’t even know it.

Just write…

How do I inspire when it's me that needs to BE inspired. It’s hard to write when your life is experiencing chaos and turmoil. It’s hard to write when all you want to do is lay in bed and sleep until your trial is over. It’s hard to write when what you want to say... Continue Reading →
