    As I mentioned yesterday, I said I would be meeting with Horizons 4 Girls, a nonprofit group in our area mentoring young girls helping them with family life, peer pressure and education expectations, guiding them with personalized assistance in help with their studies and life decisions.

    We were an intimate group of three young ladies, as well as the staff of four. This time of year seems to be a challenge with the 14 girls in the group trying to keep up with studies and books needing to be...

    Silly Gidget seems to take her bed with her wherever she goes lately. This weekend she came walking into the kitchen, her bed attached to her bad end. Cracks me up every time and I call her The Queen when this happens.

    The Queen and I have a wonderful event this afternoon that Im looking forward to. When I had Joie, the Horizons 4 Girls non profit group in our area had approached me to bring Joie in and talk with the girls. We had set up a time, but then unfortunately, I had to cancel after...

    This was the view out my writing cottage window this morning. Yup, that is snow you see on the ground. I thought the tulip lamp against the snow background was an interesting photo. Im wishing we could actually see tulips blooming instead of another blanket of snow but it isnt expected to last long, and already starting to melt. Today we tough Wisconsin birds carry spring in our hearts once again.

    Yesterday afternoon John and I went to our local art theater where they performed a series of...

    Imagine how my heart gushed with love when I read this note today from a little boy named Nate:

    I know its late, but I want to tell you it was nice meeting you and Franky. I loved Franky, she was inspiring.

    I had my two-week tune up at my chiropractor this morning. It seems that young Nate is also a patient at Dr. Cindys office and he left me this note.

    Wow. Frankies spirit continues to amaze me at how alive and thriving it is in the hearts of many. This is such a gift to me so much so, I find...

  • Meditating with Buddha Dog – Set the Intention and Magic Happens

    from Joyful Paws

    Monday April 7th, 2014 at 01:16 PM


    Ever since I completed The Sacred Alone ecourse with Susannah Conway about two weeks ago, I set the intention to meditate more. Ive been wanting to add this practice to my life for a very long time.

    Well, how interesting when you set an intention and if you are open, signs will pop up here, there and everywhere to remind you.

    After I set the intention, a day or two later my friend Shannon sent me a 21-day free meditation happening with Deepak Chopra and Oprah. I signed up and it begins April...

  • Laundry Therapy with my Special Little Helper

    from Joyful Paws

    Sunday April 6th, 2014 at 02:14 PM


    It was a full day of spring here today and oh, how glorious it felt. I had to get in a little of what I call laundry therapy and hang some dog bedding and clothing outside on the line.

    It was made even more special by having my little helper, Gidget. It is the first time since I adopted her this past November that she has gotten to explore the whole yard, which we did twice today. This meant she also had to have half her dinner at lunch time because she was insistent that she was starving from...
