Looking for Light

My heart felt heavy this morning. My heart felt broken open to all the pain that those around me are suffering. Her husband is dying and it may be time to stop treatment. Her step-sister died at a tragically young age. Her dog is dying and she doesn’t know how many snuggles and walks are … More Looking for Light

She’s 10!

My Facebook memories for today are full of Denali birthday posts (Andrew too, but I guess Denali is more photogenic lol). I can hardly believe she’s ten. We’ve been together since she was 9 weeks old. As I’ve been thinking about her birthday, I’ve come up with a few lists about my baby dog. What … More She’s 10!


A few months ago my friend told me how her sister was having issues with infertility – issues that it sounded similar to my experience. Then, last week, she texted to tell me that her sister is pregnant. She wanted me to know in advance since I will see her soon – she didn’t want … More Hope

I Am Not

I’ve got quite a few things ruminating in my mind. In fact, after last Sunday I had a blog post in mind but didn’t make time to write it. Then, earlier this evening I listened to Rob Bell’s latest podcast, and knew what I would write about that. Little did I know what was in … More I Am Not

See the Love

Because of a conference I went to a few years ago I met Hilary. Because I met Hilary we are friends on Facebook. Because we are friends on Facebook I saw that she compiles an Advent playlist every year. Because I saw these lists were hosted on Spotify I converted them over to Apple music. … More See the Love


I don’t really know where to begin here. I went to my last (for now) breathwork class with Beth tonight. More powerful energies moving around. Then I pulled onto 62nd street driving west and I gasped at the sight of the moon. Yes, the eclipse on Monday was spectacular. Amazing, in fact. But, you know … More Holding

One Word Check-In

When I chose Gratitude to be my one word for this year, I really had no idea how appropriate it would be. I initially chose it because I wanted to be happier with my life and by focusing on gratitude I figured my attitude and perspective would change. I was right about that. Each morning … More One Word Check-In


One evening during our vacation I got teary about a situation and Brad said, with concern in his voice, “I think you feel too much.” He might be right. A couple evenings before that we were at dinner – oceanfront view, warm breeze. It was the perfect setting for our beach vacation. There were even … More Feelings


I’ve learned the gift of joy from my dog. She’s coming up on nine years. We’ve been together since with was nine weeks. Aside from my immediate family, we’ve been in the longest, consistent (daily) relationship I’ve ever had.  What I appreciate about her is the joy she experiences when she sees someone she knows … More Joy
