Lunch & School Days! {Kitchen Coach}


Hello Ladies!

I’m so pleased to share a video with you featuring the beautiful Kitchen Coach, Jenny. She has put together healthy lunch ideas….with pictures! How awesome is that?

What a joy it is to be watching our children {in my case,grandchildren} embark on a new learning opportunity, whether at home or away. I hope this info is inspiring and helpful to you and that it will lighten your load in the coming days.

Declaring Peace


With the climate of “do more to have more” permeating every waking moment of our culture, here’s a declaration to try out:

“I am content.”

This little sentence is a treasure. I challenge you to try using it in your declarations night and morning for a week and see what changes come about in your mind and heart.

We already have so much. The feeling of contentment, while maybe foreign for most, is amazing! It nips every ad and billboard and popup commercial and sales pitch in the bud!

I don’t know what the stats are about how many millions of dollars are spent per person in the US to convince us that we need something more than what we already have. But I’m sure the number is staggering because there is never a moment without something being offered and something being sold.

“I am content” focuses on gratitude, on being enough and having enough.

Let me know what experience you have with this wonderful gem, will you?

Lots of love to you today!


A Word About Wealth


I was reminded again today of the affluent circumstances of many people I know. I refer to those who are able to look back over their lives and count

their many valuable human connections; relationships they have cultivated and honored; support they have given; celebratory moments they have created for others; causes and people they have championed.

How wonderful the harvest is when, over time, sweet relationships and deep connections are made.

As a parent, you’ll look back, if you haven’t already, and know that everything you have given to support and love and teach and train your children is more than worth what joy your relationships with them will return to you.

Be well. Be wealthy in your heart. That is the ultimate affluence!




All Is Well


Did you have a good day?
Did you feel energetic or a bit tired? Were you engaged and happy or did you have a lot on your mind?
Did you follow your plan or did you feel to put out a few fires?
Are you learning something new and dealing with growing pains or are you in a set routine and feeling confident about it?
Wherever and whatever you were today, no worries.
Tomorrow will have more blessings and challenges, and all you felt about yourself today will have opportunity to grow or to change.
You are doing just fine. And in most cases I’d guess you are doing far, far better than just fine!
Please go easy on yourself. Take a deep breath…..let it out.
Know that you are needed and valued, loved and appreciated.
Let today go, rest as much as you can and take on the day tomorrow with curiosity and strength.

Be well.
