A Special Gift

The other evening we dined at Sweetwater Marina and Riverdeck, which we used to own many years ago. The new owners bought Sweetwater Marina and Riverdeck from another group, so when we arrived we didn’t know them very well, although the few times we have crossed paths with them they have been incredibly warm to welcome us back, as well as genuinely excited …

Man in the Mirror

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY! Today I was doing my cardio workout and listening to music. What really helps me get through my exercises is some classic Motown. This morning I happened to be listening to the “Best of Michael Jackson.” Have you given MJ a good listen recently? This album, although I’ve heard it millions of times before, seemed to …

A Recent Fundraiser

A RECENT FUNDRAISER I have been executing fundraisers for as long as my husband and I have been together. The story I am about to tell is not about me, but about my son.

I do not always attend everything our small town does, since they do so much, but that evening I wandered in to say hello before …

Dr Martin Luther King

Just taking a few moments to salute someone I have always admired. Dr King led so many people to the right places in life with his powerful words. Although I was just a small child when he was killed, I remember having a photo of him on my mirror as a child. He preached equality, kindness and so much more …

Homelessness Awareness

My husband and I travel often. We have been quite a few places in this country and also out of the country. We experienced homelessness in almost every place we have been in some degree. Our visit to Denver has been more than staggering and has been irking me since our arrival. I cannot express the sadness I feel when …
