A Guided Drift

Have you ever been on a path – a road – a journey and you kept encountering road blocks? Or that path seemed to have lost its luster? The excitement was gone (or really… it never was there to begin with)?  You just may be on the wrong path – the...

St Patrick's Day

My Pot Of Gold

St Patrick’s Day is tomorrow.  A day of luck. A day of green. A day of leprechauns. It is also a special day in our household. It’s my husband’s birthday.  Our house has been blessed with a pot of gold – my husband.   You’re the pot of gold at the end of...

Look Up.. Way Up.

I remember as a child, being small and always having to physically look up to others.  I never thought I’d be big enough to look eye to eye someday. Now that I am, there are still those who I look up to (but not in the physical sense).  How about you?  Do you...

21 Years Ago….

Do you ever have a moment where you think it occurred just yesterday but in reality, it was two decades ago?  That is happening to me (and my husband) right now.  Our beautiful daughter is turning twenty-one.  On a snowy Monday morning in December, we made our way to the hospital.  Remembering back,...

My Birthday Boy

How do you celebrate birthdays? Do you do anything special for your family? Your loved ones?

Snow Much Fun!

Do you struggle with outdoor exercise in the winter months?  I know I do.  My husband and I do try to continue with our walks frequently, but I must say, when it is -10 degrees Celsius or colder… well, I like to stay indoors.  One activity that has us longing for each weekend...

Cupcake Moments

When Rachel turned one, I wanted to make cupcakes for her family birthday party that we were having.  Sean was outside working around the house and when he came inside, I was in tears.  I apparently did not let the cupcakes cool long enough so when I tried to decorate them, the...

Birthday In Toronto

Have you ever wanted to do something, but then the timing wasn’t quite right? Or, at least you ‘thought’ the timing wasn’t right?  I certainly have.  A mentor of mine is Rachel Hollis.  I’ve read her books and I had an opportunity to see her speak at a Power of Success seminar in...

Forget About Me – I Love You

I came across an acronym for FAMILY the other day.  Like many of you, I am sure…. the Covid-19 news has overloaded your social media platforms, your news feed, your emails, your tv and basically all general conversation.  It can create heaviness and worries on your heart and in your...
