Get It, Me!

A new PR – 10.09. Single digits, here I come!

Another Prayer Answered

“Home is where the heart is.”

My first born has come home, and for that I am grateful. This is my idea of heaven – having all my kids on the East Coast and easily accessible.

However, I don’t minimize that she has made a huge sacrifice by moving home and leaving behind her beloved life in California. She will miss her Beechwood School and her students, her Santa Clara Vanguard Drum & Bugle Corps, and her precious apartment in Sunnyvale.

But most of all, she will miss her dear friends who have been her family, her refuge and her strength for the past six years. And for all they have been and given to her – I will miss them and love them forever, too.

Good Friends, Good Times

“A friend is one who strengthens you with prayers, blesses you with love
and encourages you with hope.”

Another memorable girls’ weekend with a group of strong, intelligent, accomplished and loving friends. This annual weekend escape to Cindy’s Big Canoe retreat restores the mind, the soul and the heart. We hike, we eat, we talk and we disconnect from the demands of the real world. This time, we also attended a Banks & Shane concert which was great fun despite the unexpected rain showers!

Note to self: remember your blessings.
