We celebrated love this week with Valentine's Day. It's got me thinking more about all of the aspects of love.

Wow! What a week! I guess several 16 hour days in a row can do a person in. I just woke up. My body is fighting a cold. I may have slept in of the last 24 hours and I am ready to go back to bed. LOL. I guess my act of kindness today… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 108

I was sitting by some ladies this weekend who were chatting away about how they "eat out" 3-4 times a… Continue reading Adulting 101 – What’s Cooking?
Today I am going to brag about how others spread the light today. To be honest... I have no idea if I did something kind today. I did help at school. I did run a rehearsal. I did try to smile all day. I did try to listen with real intent to everyone who needed… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 104
Well... I am still doing what I can to eat healthy and to kick myself off this weight-loss Plateau. Everything remains the same. GAH! Oh well. It isn't really about the weight loss.
