As I write this post, my precious almost-two-year-old granddaughter is sleeping soundly in the room next door. I know without a doubt it's soundly because she fell asleep in my arms while I rocked her, while I carried her upstairs and lay her down, covering her with a soft blanket, and ten minutes later… Continue reading Oh So Grateful!
Happy Father's Day to all of the fathers out there, as well as to all of the uncles, step-dads, grandpas, friends, and anyone who is blessed to have the role of dad and make a difference in the life of a child. You Rock!
As far back as I can remember, I wanted to be a mother. Little did I know back then, that role would far surpass any joy I've ever experienced. And that it would rocket my capacity to worry past the moon. I'm pretty sure I can count on one hand the number of nights of uninterrupted sleep I've… Continue reading Women’s History Month Spotlight – Mary, Mother of Jesus
My book signing this past Saturday was better than I had even expected. The highlight, however, was not the books sold, but the 11-year old who visited my table. She loves to write and I could see the light dance in her eyes as she talked about it. I saw myself in that little girl and… Continue reading Book Signing a Success
There won't be any biking today as I traditionally do on Mother's Day, as the ground is coated with about 5" of white fluff and the trees are several feet shorter under the weight of the snow. It looks like we went from spring back to winter here in Colorado. But it's beautiful, I'll give… Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day
If there's one thing that can turn a bad day into a good one every single time it's connecting with my Compassion kiddos. I can be having a terrible day at work, but if at the end of that day I come home to find a letter from one of my three kids in… Continue reading Living With Compassion

"Being a father has been, without a doubt, my greatest source of achievement, pride and inspiration. Fatherhood has taught me about unconditional love, reinforced the importance of giving back and taught me… Continue reading Happy Father’s Day
Yesterday morning after I finished my run, I walked out on the pier that graces the park, as I usually do, to enjoy the view while I cooled down, stretched, and practiced some end-of-workout meditation. Usually, I'm alone on that pier because it's typically early in the morning. Yesterday morning was one of the rare occasions I wasn't alone out… Continue reading A Walk in the Park
I've been a lazy blogger the past week. That being said, I've been breathing new life into revising my novel, The Inheritance, and I'm seeing the final touches being completed in the very near future. Near, as in by mid-June. 🙂 My husband and I are taking a much needed vacation this next week--leaving in the morning--so… Continue reading A Mother’s Day Thanksgiving
Zoey and Zig Ziglar Yes, you read that correctly. My favorite "Z" word in the whole world is Zoey, my precious granddaughter. There is none so perfect as she. 🙂 Especially in her sassy little leopard print dress. And Zig Ziglar? I couldn't think of a better way to end this remarkable blog challenge than… Continue reading “Z” is for…
