Opportunities for Growth – bound half lotus tip-toe pose

When I used to take my golden retriever to our local nursing home I quickly noticed who the most popular residents were.  They were the people whom always had a smile on their face, were pleasant to talk to and who chatted about things other than their health or how horrible their room was.  These […]

From Me to You

Is it possible to be a great fan of someone’s work and not have any idea who they are? (A resounding YES echoes in my head). Sue, my yoga teacher, reads an uplifting passage right before class ends – one of the many reasons I love her to the moon and back. During Wednesday’s class […]

Pick Me Up

Its been a while since I’ve posted any photos of gratitude, so here is something that I hope will inspire you to find your own moment of gratefulness this week.  We are in for another frigid week with below zero temperatures here in Indiana.  Winter blues has set in for much of this part of […]

Beauty Underneath

Do women still lie about their age?  When I was small I was taught to never, EVER ask a woman’s age.  “That is rude and inconsiderate,’ my mother used to say.  A woman telling you her true age was about as likely as a woman telling you that she was wearing her natural hair color. […]

Hear her roar – she’s forty-four

Age is a funny thing.  Kids can’t wait to tell you how old they are, and they’ll even cheat a bit by rounding up to the next number. Teenagers can’t wait to be older.  I think one of the greatest compliments I ever received as a 16 year old was being told, ‘really?  You look […]

Life beyond the words: I Don’t Love You Anymore

In 2000 as few of you know, I was facing one of the worst periods of my life.  In less than two years I lost both my father and grandfather.  Thrown into that mix I was blindsided by the words, I don’t want to be married to you anymore followed by I’m seeing someone else all in […]

Gratitude Photos of the Week

I thought I’d check in one last time this week, as I likely won’t be posting again until after Craig’s surgery is over (look for me around Wednesday of next week). Things are status quo over here.  Craig is still making do with protein shakes and low-sodium, clear based soups.  He’s starting to have more […]

Gratefulness in Photos. Husband Update

Last night was a crazy night.  It all started around dusk.  I was looking out of my bedroom window down to the creek we have running in our back yard.  There they were – a mama duck and 11 ducklings that were each about the size of a golf ball swimming closely behind, peeping away.  […]

Photo of Gratitude Week 3

Monday night was all about the unknown.  I was sitting in the ER trying to keep my husband comfortable as we waited to see a doctor for what we thought was appendicitis.  While we waited the only images coming from the TV were those of the Boston bombings.  An already somber room filled with sick […]

Bird Signs and Progress!

Craig and I just finished our taxes this past weekend. Not fun.  Especially when I have to write out a check to the government.  It was nothing I didn’t expect, though.  I knew I’d owe – I just didn’t know how much.  Working as an independent contractor for Patty had minor drawbacks like that.  I […]
