Welcome Mat

It amazes me the way the Universe works. I have long believed that I needed to bust my butt for everything I have achieved. I thought I needed to persist and pursue, to constantly seed plant to assure a bountiful […]

Blessings On Their Way

How hard would it be to have faith that life was wonderful, even in the midst of challenges and those inevitable ‘dark nights of the soul’ if you knew that there were blessings and gifts with your name on them […]

The Magic of Believing

    A smile is a curve that sets everything straight. -Phyllis Diller   The end of an era, the passing of another comedic icon from my childhood. Phyllis Diller, she of the self deprecating humor and the raucous cackling […]
