Crazy Unsettled World

What is going on in this world? Every day I turn on the news and/or open my iPad, and something new is happening in the world that is so negative. Bombings, stabbings and uproars all over the world has left me and everyone else speechless and wondering why??? Why would people choose to want to die? Why would people choose to fight, …

Crying

Everyone needs a good cry once in a while. It makes us all feel a bit better to just “let it out.” When life seems to overwhelm us, whether it be from caring for an ill child or elderly relative, a death, or just a buildup of stress, a good cry can cleanse the soul. I honestly do not cry …

Summer Childhood Memories

Funny, while watering the flowers this early morning I was thinking of my childhood and how much I loved summer then- it was just as much as I do now. Everything about the breaking into spring followed by summer, is reflected in my thoughts today. The sound of the world coming back to life after a long winter, the smell, …

A Special Quote

When I was a teen, and I have shared this a little in my book, Everythings Okay, one of my closest friends, Sandra, was killed in a terrible car accident in Florida at the same time I was scheduled for surgery.

True friends are there through think and thin, don’t judge, and always, always try to be helpful when they can. Personally, I have been blessed …

Yet Another Storm

Recently, in Southern NJ, we experienced a terrible storm. I can tell you that it was not a long storm with lots of rain, but the winds left southern NJ in turmoil. No power for days on end, and to top it off, no cell service for about 20 hours or more. Our home looked as if it was hit …

FREEDOM

Seems appropriate enough to blog about this since Saturday is the big day: The 4th of July and what it means to me. With everything going on in this world, I often think about how lucky we all are to be here in the USA. I know that recently things have been creeping up on us in our country with …

Hug Your Loved One

I am declaring a national “Hug Your Loved One Day”. There may even be one already, but for now, any day you decide, is it! Wake up, take a moment to think about it and then hug someone. It can be anyone from your pet to your spouse, but I encourage you to just do it. Hugging people is something I …
