#bethelight – Day 30

Yesterday was crazy busy!  I had no time to plan and prep healthy food.  Lucky for me the local restaurant I chose had a vegetarian meal.  All I had to do was replace the cheese.  It was tasty.   AND I helped out a family owned business! For today, I will help others find the positive.… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 30

Warrior Wednesday

A Warrior Never Looks Back

Everyone makes mistakes.  Life is all about choices… good, bad, and the ugly.  Right or wrong, your destiny will unfold according to the choices we make.  Why choose to live in the past where everything has already happened.  Why not embrace the current day?!  Today is a blessing, where everything is possible.  Trial and difficulties… Continue reading A Warrior Never Looks Back

#bethelight – Day 29

I tried very hard with the listening yesterday.  Some days are harder than others.  🙂 Today I will eat local.  Local families work hard to create a business and support their families.  Local restaurants are good too!  Today I will give the family owned restaurants a little business. #bethelight Join me!

Thought Tuesday

Adulting 101 –

Perhaps you have heard the saying, "measure twice, cut once."  This is a phrase I use all the time in a scene shop.  However, I am finding more and more students "come close" and yet, "close" is not really good enough.  It is just guessing.  The consequence of "guessing" is wasted material... and money...  You… Continue reading Adulting 101 –


#bethelight – Day 28

Yesterday I wrote a note to a student.  It was fun to see her face light up as she read it. Today is National Day of Listening. Be an active listener.  It is so easy to be distracted by your own thoughts and your environment when someone else is talking.  When you are distracted you… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 28

First Week of the Holiday Season – Success!

Last week was a crazy good week of eating!  I succeeded in staying away from unhealthy, inflammation causing foods.  Although I had a couple days of horrible leg cramps, I made it through Thanksgiving and actually LOST weight!  When does that happen? Monday looked like this: Jamba Juice for breakfast; a yummy salad with a… Continue reading First Week of the Holiday Season – Success!


#bethelight – Day 27

Yesterday I made a plan for following the #LIGHTtheWORLD. Today I will be looking for ways to #bethelight on my own.  It's a busy day... getting back into the groove of school, work, lessons, and the like.  It will be a long 13-14 hour day.  All the more reason to work on spreading kindness! I… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 27


28 Years and Counting

Still moving forward… 28 years is a while. 🙂

Resigning as the General Manager of the Universe

So… Today is my anniversary… married 28 years.

I’ve spent some time looking through old pictures.  Ah… memories!  We have had some eventful years!  So many lessons learned!  Some lessons tested our marriage.  All lessons add strength, personally and as a unit.  Some lessons brought great happiness and a few sadness in those 28 years.  All of our experiences together have taught me that I have found a person that makes me want to be a better person.

A Week of Thankful Boyacks

We’ve been busy! Check it out!

Resigning as the General Manager of the Universe

This is always a big week around our house.  First, there is my birthday… one year older, but not to sure about wiser.  My birthday was like any other day.  Later in the week I spoiled myself and got a hair cut.  Too bad I can never get my hair to look as nice as it does when I leave the hair stylist!  John took me to see a movie and out to dinner for my birthday too.


I’ve been working on my #bethelight efforts.  One of my favorites was when we went to Jamba Juice and left a big tip… read this to know more about that… #bethelight – Day 21

Resigning as the General Manager of the Universe

It is Thanksgiving Day at my house.  In between the making of all the “fixin’s” and the arrival of the guests, I decided to do a little research as to how this day came about and what might have really been served for dinner.


The “traditional” meal includes roasted turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie.  This holiday feast originated in November 1621.  The Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians gathered together to celebrate a bountiful harvest and new friends.  This gathering is regarded as our “first Thanksgiving.”  However, is wasn’t a national holiday until much later.  In 1846, Sarah Josepha Hale, an editor of the Godley’s Lady’s Book magazine, campaigned for an annual national holiday of thanksgiving after discovering some writing mentioned the gathering of 1621.  In 1863 President Abraham Lincoln declared two national Thanksgivings: one in August commemorated the Battle of Gettysburg, one in November to…
