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. Raising Johnathan has been a wonderful experience and I would not change a thing if I had to do it over. All the ups and downs, …

Sweet Story

I recently went into my local health food store and while looking at the card rack, I saw an older couple struggling to get through the door. Instantly the manager of this store, who has been there as long as I can remember, ran over to hug and welcome them. He then helped them both shuffle into the store and …

Nourish

I am certain you might be questioning the title of my blog. A new friend, Krystle Bailey, who happens to live close by, did a book signing at the Casianos coffee shop in our area. 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 …

MOMMY BAGS

I met this amazing women back around my first fundraiser for my book, Everything’s Okay. Marie has been executing this act of kindness for a very …

Trying to Stay Healthy

  I’ve spent half of my life in and out of hospitals having surgery after surgery, and to this day, I still have health issues. Right now, the most important thought on my mind, is trying to stay as healthy as possible. I am reaching out to others, in hope inspiring more of us to appreciate all we have, both …

What We Believe In

Can we just believe in being a nation of good people? Can we believe that we will only treat others how we would like to be treated? Can we be a nation of polite words, smiles, courtesy? I know this post may stir up some emotions, but no matter how we pray, love, live, eat and so on, how difficult …

Diesel Our Dog Nephew

Diesel came into our nieces lives at about the age of 4 and was a rescue American Bull Dog. He has been abused, and although he could not speak, his scars told his story all the way down to his one eye missing. We would joke and call him a pirate.  We laughed when he was dressed as one on …
