Today let’s chat about alternatives… al·ter·na·tive ôlˈtərnədiv adjective 1. (of one or more things) available as another possibility. This morning, like every morning, I get to chose the way I begin the day. So this morning I woke up early (I’m semi-retired… why the heck would I do that?) to walk with a friend. As it turns out, after a recent doctors visit I was given news that I needed to make some changes for my health, so the decision was made to walk. Walking in an of itself is not horrible and couple that with being able to chat...Read More
No, no, no – not us!!! Last Saturday, a dear friend asked me to assist her with an engaged couples at our parish”building your marriage before it starts” retreat. No, not as a presenter, definitely not as an example, but instead as extra set of hands for setup and cleanup. The beauty of this is that I get to listen to a fantastic marriage retreat – for free!

While creating my post for the other ½ of my blog I came up with a challenge idea… (to see original post click here) So… here is the Challenge: Stop what you are doing, grab a sheet of paper (large or small) and a writing implement, think of someone you love, some one you like, someone who might be lonely, heck even that shop clerk who made you smile. Think about what you want to say and begin writing!!! Write you say??? Yep, using your very own handwriting (print or cursive) a simple note, a note of encouragement, a letter, or even...Read More
