A Different kind of Mother’s Day!

No less important….actually, I think even more important…..but celebrated today in a very different way than we have been accustom to for generations. There is no special family gathering to celebrate Mom. There is no Sunday brunch at her favourite restaurant to celebrate Mom. Mother’s Day is a really important day at the best of […]

More Beautiful Than Before

I have some wonderful, caring, beautiful friends in my life.  I’m grateful for their love and support. Recently I was fortunate to spend some quality and fun time with a girlfriend who came to our winter oasis in California for a week. During her time with us, she presented me with a little book that […]

ADVERSITY…how I deal with it!
