How To Help A Friend Who Is an Addict

One of the most devastating things that can happen to any family is substance abuse in any form. Anything in excess is never good for anyone. That could be anything from too much food, exercise, alcohol or even shopping. Addictive behaviors can turn relationships upside down for those who…

Interviewing My Three Guys

This was posted on Facebook. Interview your children with these questions, but don’t prompt them, correct them, or put words in their mouth. Write down their answers as they say them. These rules make the answers more interesting. I wrote down their original answers even though sometimes they (especially my first-born), wanted to change the answer. Also, it’s pretty cool to see yourself in the eyes of your loved ones. I couldn’t help myself & included my personal commentary in parenthesis.…See More

Showcase of Rose Parade Floats 2017

I've been watching the Tournament of Roses Parade on television for about 35 years now. It has always been a beautiful & traditional way to start off the new year. I've always wanted to see the floats up close & personal and this year, we did it! It was an awesome experience and I feel truly privileged to see these giant artwork pieces right in front of me.Click the link for…See More

Rise Up: A Music Spotlight

I can't listen to this song without feeling strong emotions--sometimes I have to choke back tears when I'm listening to it. Yeah, I'm a big sap. But I own it. LOL! I love songs that inspire & this song has that quality, in whatever way the listener wants to interpret it. Andra Day's voice is haunting & so pure. Please listen & enjoy this song. I hope it moves you in some way too.Please click…See More

My Pledge as a Woman and as a Mother

In light of an extremely volatile Presidential election that concluded unfavorably in alignment to my beliefs and ideologies, I must continue to march forward and contribute to my country and my world as best I know how--that is to continue to spread messages I believe are right and true to my morals. And I will continue to raise my boys to be the men who act & believe in ideals I can be proud of.…See More

Post Election Life Continues and Hope Endures

The election did not go the way that I had hoped. And I have to admit, it left me pretty shaken and continues to send me on occasional emotional lows. But as I always try to do, I choose to find the positive in everything. One of my favorite reactions was from Stephen Colbert.Click the link for more...See More

Don't Do Drugs...Hope They're Really Listening

Along with most schools nationwide, my boys' school participated in Red Ribbon Week at the end of October. The main message was YOLO (You only live once), Don't Use Drugs. Of course, I've always told my kids about the dangers of drugs, but as all involved parents can relate, I hope that they've been listening and follow through in the decisions they make. As they are now experiencing the jungle that is Middle School, I hope that the continuous conversations we've had and messages they receive…See More

The Countdown of the Longest Week Begins....

Today, I send my first-born off on a week long academic & spiritual retreat with his fellow 8th Grade graduating class, their teacher, and chaperones. He will be about 6 hours away driving distance, and about an hour away plane distance. He'll be off the grid--no communication via phone--for almost 6 whole days. What seemed like an abstract concept ("oh yeah, he's going on a retreat in the 8th Grade") is now my reality. Make no mistake about it, this is going to be the longest week of my…See More

Music Spotlight: Scars to Your Beautiful

There's so much tearing down out there. Women, men, older people, children--non of us are immune to hurtful and angry words. I'm craving something positive! So, naturally I turn to music to give me some solace. Here's a song that tells you to be proud of who you are. You are beautiful--just the way you are. Focus on being a good person. That's beauty--that's the light that shines within.Click…See More

It Can Wait!

Drivers, old and young, need to hear this message just one more time...always just one more time...put the cell phone down, wait to turn that radio station to another channel, keep your eyes on the road...pay attention when you're driving. Pay attention. It's a matter of life & death. Here is a powerful PSA with the very strong message: IT CAN WAIT. Let's put an end to distracted driving!Click the link for…See More

The song "Quiet" by MILCK

Posted on January 23, 2017 at 12:36pm 0 Comments

In what I feel was a very special moment at the historic "Women's March" after the Presidential Inauguration 2017, a group of women led by the song writer MILCK, started singing this beautiful song. Putting aside political differences, the song is hauntingly lovely & powerfully fierce.
