Life is a Gift

Life is a Gift

On this date, thirty years ago, my family gathered to celebrate my dad’s upcoming 59th birthday.  It was a Sunday afternoon and it was the last time I saw my parents and my sister Marjorie, alive.  Two days later, they were gone.   I won’t go into the tragedy surrounding their deaths or the trauma […]

Work & Life

Work & Life

Are you too worried, overwhelmed or stuck, to do the things you really want to do? Do any of these statements describe you? Exhausted and stressed at the end of each workday. Desk/office looks like a hurricane passed through it. Know you should delegate more, but  just can’t seem to let go of certain tasks. Technology […]

Are You Really?

Are You Really?

Do you think of yourself as a kind and loving person?  Are you, really? If we squeeze an orange, the only thing that comes out of the orange, is orange juice.  There is no chance that we will get grape juice or anything else from the orange.  When someone “squeezes” you, what comes out?   When […]

You Can Be Happy… No Matter What

If You Could, What Would You Change About Your Life?

This is one of those questions that can strike fear in the heart of the most confident person.  Why?  Because everyone has done something in their life that they wish they had done differently or there is some circumstance they would like to change.  It may be something they don’t want to talk about because […]

Love and Forgiveness

Love and Forgiveness

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always […]
