Embracing the future

As days pass & months turn into years, the forward movement of time seems to catch us all by surprise. Our once high energy toddlers are graduating high school, then college while weddings, babies & new homes are the norm. This new norm however, isn't for us, but it is for the 'younger' generation that…

Time

I have been told time heals all wounds, but does it?  Life is a series of experiences triumphs & tragedies that the passage of time can soften our memories of.  Time however, doesn't make those feelings go away.  As we grow older & have more memories in our memory bank we can be selective as…

Lies

Psalm 27 The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When the wicked advance against me to devour[a] me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. 3 Though an army besiege…

Inspire

To everyone out there who is feeling overwhelmed, you know who you are. You are mothers, sisters, grandmothers and friends. To anyone who ever said, 'I am done, I cannot do this anymore.' To those of us who have hit rock bottom emotionally, physically or financially, guess what? You are not alone! Having a bad…

Tim Tebow and the Broncos….

Tim Tebow and the Broncos season ended last night in Foxboro with a decisive loss.  Tom Brady and the Patriots were unstoppable and played flawlessly and with home field advantage they triumphed.  Congratulations to them and to the eventual Superbowl winners.  I am disappointed  the Broncos didn't go all the way, but so is every other fan whose team…

Thank you Tim Tebow

I love Tim Tebow.  From when he was a Gator and my daughter Lauren was a Gator too, Tim Tebow stands for so much that is good and is my definition of a hero.  I find it interesting however, how the media and most people bad mouth him.  John Elway had his own reservations about who Tim Tebow…

Yin and yang

Life is like a roller coaster.  The unpredictability of it is what makes it so interesting and just like when the roller coaster goes into the tunnel and makes a quick, sharp turn so it is in life.  We like to imagine what our future will be like.  We plan and try to control our destiny,…

I am who I am……

 I am a mother, a friend, a daughter, a neighbor, an advocate, an author.  I am a teacher, a cook, a housekeeper, a gardener, a Catholic and an American.    I laugh, I cry and I do the best I can do each and everyday. I am far from perfect, but I strive everyday to do something…
