Some Things That I Love

“A miracle is not defined by an event. A miracle is defined by gratitude.” (Here If You Need Me, p. 181)

Gratitude grows with mindful practice and patience to not sweat the small stuff. I’m dedicating this spot to share the events, people, places and things—big and small—that bring me peace, joy, and love. And yes, gratitude.

Welcome

The most powerful words in the English language are, ‘Me, too.’” – Anne Lamott

I have opinions about a whole bunch of stuff. I bet you do too. The problem is that sometimes I don’t know what my opinion is exactly; I just know I have one! When that happens, I turn to people close to me to figure it out. That’s what I’m hoping to build here—a community of people who are trying to figure themselves, and this crazy thing we call life, out.

I want to riff on all kinds of topics: being a wife, mother, friend, teacher. Some of our conversations will be easy and fun, others not so much. I learned a lot on my life journey over the last couple of years that I hope can bring people hope and inspiration. I’d like to share what I learned with you, here.

Please join me. Let’s be each other’s, Me too. We may not always understand or agree with different points of view, but we can always be each other’s support system.

New Book

"Your book is coming together in a great story that I believe will touch people wholeheartedly. You are taking what was, at times, a very sad and difficult journey, and creating a way to share it and encourage others to maintain the course, to hope, to keep moving forward towards a better life. That's an incredible thing. The path that led you to here, to writing this book, to morph it as you went along, is coming together beautifully. That path, like ourselves and our lives,hasn't been "perfect"... but the end product will be amazing and change lives for the better."

- Susan S.
