Why Do We Give?

Does doing random (as in to a stranger) or personal (to someone you know) acts of kindness really accomplish anything? Could doing something as seemingly immaterial as paying $2.50 for a stranger’s cup of coffee possibly have a meaningful impact on their day? After paying it forward for now 50 consecutive days, I can tell you I honestly don’t know. […]

How To Love When You Don’t Agree…

My husband is a realist. I’m a dreamer. And somehow we meet in the middle and enjoy the journey together. It’s a logical question to ask. How do you knowingly, willingly choose to share your life with someone who doesn’t share the same belief system that guides you? How do you stay happily married if one partner’s perspective is that […]

Pre-Game 4 Pep Talk to the Washington Nationals

We just returned from spending spring break in Colorado where we rented a car and adventured far and wide. What an amazing state with beauties unparalleled! One of the places we landed was the Gateway Canyon in the Palisades of Western Colorado. It was unanimously decided that this was the highlight of our trip. The kids loved the freedom, the free […]
