Fearless

I don't suppose I can say I've ever been "fearless". Oh sure, I'm working on it, but it continues to elude me. Sometimes fear taunts me. Tempts me to engage with it. Cozy up to it. Reconcile with it so we can be "friends" again. But for today, I turn down the invitation and stay… Continue reading Fearless

Cry Me a River

Do you watch Netflix? What about Amazon Prime? Yeah, me too. The other night I stumbled upon a movie - "I'll See You in My Dreams". It was a decent movie and passed the 2 hrs that I was unable to sleep. The main character, Carol, (Blythe Danner), was a widower who had been unable… Continue reading Cry Me a River

It impacted almost every area of my life and… Continue reading Fear – Impact of It (Part 1)

Life Candy, My Faves

Life Candy – Laughter

"Life Candy" is a phrase that has become mainstream over the past several years. I remember when I first "heard it" (read it on a friends' social media post-Gena Hill), I LOVED it! It made me smile and immediately I thought of seeing a child's eyes light up (or my husband's eyes...he has a bigtime… Continue reading Life Candy – Laughter

Failure

Fallen flat on your face lately? Yes? How is that scraped nose doing? If you have kids older than 6 mths, I know you remember when your child first face planted. No, not on the carpet but when they met the sidewalk, face-to-face. It's one of the few unmistakeable injuries. When you see that scraped… Continue reading Failure
