Eulogy to my Hero…

#HonoringHer As today's denotes the official day my mom passed last year I thought the best way to honor this sacred day would be to share the eulogy that I gave at her Celebration of Life with our friends and family.

Just show up…

Today I am reminded how important it is to simply show up in the lives of those your love. As I am sitting here at 1:38a which is officially one year from the last day I had with my Mom I am reminded of the kindness and selflessness of others. It was that selflessness that... Continue Reading →

Sometimes the phrase is... Continue Reading →

Wake Up Call…

...and just like that a blog is created! I am driving home from my litany of errands this morning and Scott Stapp's new song "Wake Up Call" comes on my radio and BOOM I am inspired. First of all, I have to give credit where credit is due. Scott Stapp's new album is SUPERB! I... Continue Reading →
