Aggression and Fear Vs Love and Peace

2019-04-01T15:36:25-06:00

Look at those huge rocks! It just amazes me how giant rocks like that end up where they do. I don’t know how it happened and the mystery is a big part of the awe and amazement I feel. I don’t need to know the answer, I’d actually rather not, I think. Do you ever [...]

Think About It…How Valuable is Your Health?

2019-04-01T15:32:23-06:00

Yesterday we bought these (in photo) at the store. Danny has been gobbling them up, he loves them. This was our first time trying them. They are pricey but filled with fabulous nutrition. I always say to myself, when buying more expensive vegetables, “it’s cheaper than doctors by far. I’d rather pay a little more [...]

It’s where the practice of mindfulness really helps guide your life in a positive and enriching way. The word mindfulness is a new buzz word thrown around but still largely not [...]

Practice The Pause

2018-11-28T10:02:05-06:00

Going from mindless to mindful   Last night I had a delightful dinner with a dear friend. It had been a while since we had gotten together, life happens and time passes. But we caught up and it felt so good to spend the time together.   One of the things we touched on is [...]

Staying in a mindful and spiritual state of being during the holidays can be challenging for many people. That was the topic this morning after our group morning Meditation With Dogs over at Foster's Healthy Pets in Grayslake. Summer (the bulldog mix in the photo) was one of the dogs who attended and she did [...]

How To Choose Happy Before my Doing Good Deeds Road Trip I discovered this mug on sale at Macy’s. I bought about ten of them. During the trip I left the mugs with notes at different random locations. I kept one for myself and love it. Today I remind myself that I choose to be [...]

Standing In The Rain

2018-08-29T11:08:26-06:00

What If... It was raining and thundering when I got up this morning. That’s never a good morning for having the dogs go potty outside. They never go by themselves anyway, without me there, so when it’s raining it takes a ton of coaxing to get them to join me. I was standing on the [...]

The Spark

Thursday August 23 at 6:40 p.m. I received this text on messenger: "I know we haven’t spoken in a while but I am heartbroken. My brother committed suicide this morning." It was from a woman named Julie who used to volunteer for me for my humane society. At one time Julie and I had developed [...]
