What are some ways you foster gratitude? Thanksgiving is here— the official kick-off of the holiday season. It’s now a race to the new year. Our wallets and waistlines are stretched as the season of feasting and giving begins. Schedules are as tight as our jeans, packed with to-do lists, holiday parties, and travel. In […]
Remember… We are told. Remember 9/11…Never Forget… Remember the sacrifice, the tragedy, the lives lost. Remember the moment when everything changed. Remember the heartache, the pain, the horror.

It wasn’t until I lived in the northeast that I began to really anticipate spring. My daily routine consists of checking the weather channel for the next burst of warmth and sunshine and planning my schedule accordingly. Let’s just say I was very spoiled living in Florida and took warmth for granted! And with the […]
Blustering 40-50 mph winter winds shook my window panes. I lay awake listening to the wind howl outside my window.
