My Sister

I was blessed to have a wonderful sister. We grow closer and closer over the years, and I want to share her with you. She is loving, hard working, kind, beautiful both inside and out, and lives life to the fullest. Of course as all siblings do, we both certainly drive each other crazy. Although we may have our differences, …

A Recent Book I Read

A gentlemen, who I’ve been recently working with writing my screenplay, sent me a book that he co-wrote. Jamarr’s Promise,  a true story of corruption, courage, and child welfare, was an amazing read. Both authors, Kristin Morris and my acquaintance, Joesph Zielinski, did an amazing job of giving us the day to day life of our welfare system and child …

Summer Has Arrived

As usual I am always in awe of the fact that the seasons change right on time. How does Mother Nature do it? Seems like a funny question but really, really put some thought in this. Like a clock, without anyone pushing a button, swiping or ringing any kind of a bell, here comes another season. It happens just about …

Ronald McDonald House

What a rewarding day to take family and some volunteers to cook dinner at the Ronald McDonald House in South Jersey. My granddaughters and their mom joined us this time and were a big hit! The guests of the house having treatments and their families loved them. They kept a smile on their faces from beginning to end. We served …

A Letter to Princess Diana

As I sit here and ponder about the amount of years you have been gone, I find it hard to believe. It is so many years, it is hard to comprehend. I wish you were here to read my words but deep down, I know that somewhere you are watching us all, especially your children. I have followed you since …

My Guest Speaker

Felicia was born with a rare problem. Digesting her food was nearly impossible. She spent a large portion of her life fighting and spending an unimaginable amount of time at CHOP. One of my volunteers went to school with Felicia and they recently graduated high school. We asked Felicia if she would like to share her story with us at the Evening …

An Evening of Inspiration 8

We just celebrated our 8th year of my book Everything’s Okay and along with that we had our Evening of Inspiration Fundraiser. It is our biggest event and shall I say… Oh what a night! The evening unfolded with happy faces and people mingling all there for the same purpose, to help raise money for my passion, my book, the …

Cold Weather and an ill Child

Seems like the entire USA is out of sorts with the weather. The entire east coast is under a chill that I cannot recover from. I am not sure how others can deal with the cold but for me I tuck in and hibernate, staying inside as much as I can and avoiding outside as much as I can. The …

Moving On

Tragedy after tragedy comes to us through social media, the news, and many other ways. There are so many terrible things happening in the world today? How do we manage to process them? How do we put our fears on hold to travel? How do we prepare ourselves mentally if we were subjected to something horrific? These questions and many …
