1. feeling or expressing gratitude; appreciative.
Allow me to express myself by way of adverb, adjective and noun; I am superthankfully, thankful and consumed with thankfulness! For my faith, for my life, for my family, for YOU!
I am riding high on an attitude of gratitude and I hope you are as well. It’s been a remarkable year and I want to share something that recently happened to me that fills me with tremendous emotion.

Have you recently moved? Gotten married? Divorced? Had a new baby? Experienced a loss? Life is full of changes, some happy, some sad, some expected and most not.
We’ve been talking about the importance of traditions this month, and I want to remind you that a “tradition” can be started at any time, for any reason. This is especially important after a major life change.
I reached out to my listeners to hear what they had to say; they shared this:
“When my wife and I divorced, the parenting plan had us switching off Christmas Eve and Christmas Day every other year. I [More]

Although November brings a call to cherish our blessings, our loved one’s and spreading goodwill, we should do that every day. But it’s not always easy.
Having holidays to celebrate and remind us is so good. I’m so very blessed with family and friends. I am also very grateful for you my listeners and Facebook visitors. I asked for you to share your stories, memories and gratitude as we enter into this sacred time of year. And you did!

Welcome to November!
Welcome to… dum da da dum…. The Holiday Season!
They’re here folks! The days of planing and prepping, company parties, family gatherings, feasts and festivities! Stash those costumes, put away the fake spider webs, let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work!
Where do we start? Typically with traditions.
Traditions are those things that we do over and over again because they bring a sense of familiarity, of comfort, of BELONGING. Sometimes we know where, and why, and how they started, oftentimes not. But we continue with them because they brings us together and bind us in shawls of shared [More]

We’re wrapping up a stormy October, hurricanes in the east, tornadoes in the west, lots of rain and wind and fear, damage and destruction; amidst it all, song and dance, praise and joy.
Yes, joy – from where, you ask? Everywhere. Homes and schools, places of work and places of worship. But primarily, I think, in the hearts and minds of children.
Children do not have the burden we as adults carry. Worry is overshadowed by wonder. Days after Hurricane Matthew struck in the east I saw pictures of children frolicking in back yards that had been turned into pools. The joy [More]

Lots of talk about storms lately… Is there one brewing in your life?
We all must weather storms of living, but some are much more difficult than others. Losing a loved one, divorce, betrayal, career set-backs, physical injuries and illnesses, addictions… These are the storms that cause our psyche to run, to flee, to take cover.
Sometimes our instincts mislead us and tell us to shut EVERYTHING out, not just the danger but the help we need to get us through.
Are you experiencing a tumultuous time such as this? Take heart, you are not alone.
As my friend, Robin Roberts, says, “Everyone’s got [More]

Last week I talked with you about being a refuge from the bitter, angry, divisiveness that is permeating our media these days, and on the heels of that note, in stormed Hurricane Matthew.
Hurricanes are REAL physical danger, friends. We are very blessed to live in a country that has storm preparedness policies and practices. Warnings were issued, evacuations ordered, first responders placed on alert, utility crews poised for action… and still there were folks who scoffed, who refused to move. This inaction not only puts the individual at risk but also all those who are called to assist.
As Matthew approached [More]

Welcome to a safe place.
Safe from the bullying, harassment, and negativity that the media has accosted us with lately. Politics? I’m beat. How ’bout you?
After last Monday’s debate I had to take a break from social media for a while. Soooo much anger out there. Made me sad and anxious to see it all.
A few days later pictures of kids, and animals, and food started circulating again and I was able to log back in to my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts without holding my breath.
Are you experiencing this negativity overload? Is it like nails on a chalkboard to you [More]

I love fall! Perhaps even better than spring or summer… well, perhaps not better, but… Oh, who am I kidding? I love ALL the seasons!
September, after a very expectant spring and summer, brought me my first two children; Isaiah and Shaylah. I have to admit, I am partial to this month.
More aptly, what I love the most is the changing of the seasons. That certain something in the air that is signaling nature to be on alert, for heat, for cold, for rain, for long days or short ones; “prepare” that something says!
I enjoy watching our natural world make it’s [More]
