New Love

I can feel the excitement building – new love is coming into my life and I am thrilled.

For a long time I didn’t think that I wanted to be in a serious relationship but now my heart is open. I have had so many wonderful experiences that have taught me how fantastic it can be to share loving and joyful time with someone special.

Precious Life

Sometimes we get a not so subtle message to grasp every single moment of life and joy that we possibly can!

Today was one of those days for me... On a routine flight home from work our plane hit the jet stream of another aircraft and caused a very frightening tumble in the air that was surreal.

It was a very close call and immediately I flashed on those I love and how precious and fragile our lives truly are.

My lesson in this is to never, ever take anything for granted. Appreciate and honor everything you hold dear for you never know when it will end.

Wanted or Not Wanted

Sometimes it’s the smallest thing that can make the biggest difference. I've been reading a lot about the "Law of Attraction" and how in the universe there are 2 aspects to everything, wanted and not wanted.

The concept is to focus on more of what you do want to have in your experience and less on what you do not. It can be very difficult to remember to think this way because most of us were taught the opposite.

But if I want peace, joy and love in my life then that is what I must give my attention to. When I can do that, I see how beautifully it unfolds and becomes better than I ever could have imagined.

"More than the greatest love the world has known, this is the love I'll give to you alone..." by the wonderful Nat King Cole.

Every time I hear that song I feel a pull at my heartstrings and remember sitting with my mother on a Sunday afternoon. Sometimes it was while we were doing her hair, sometimes we were just talking.

Dear Mom - I miss you more than you'll ever know.....

There is something magical about stillness. To be so completely calm and aware of my physical being that I can feel the sensation of air touching my skin and hear my heart beating.

It draws me into a deeper state of appreciation for both the physical as well as spiritual aspects of life.

I treasure those lovely little moments of pure tranquility….

Flowering Trees

I had forgotten about the gorgeous flowering trees in California. It makes me very happy when I step outside and smell the lovely fragrance and see the beautiful colors. Just to take a few minutes to appreciate the beauty around me makes me smile and give thanks for the wonderful life I have!

Merging Worlds

As my life gets busier I need to remember to make time for those things that are most important to me. Talking to my daughters or just taking a peaceful walk. It is easy to let the dedication to work spill over into my personal time and space and before I know it I am tired and overwhelmed.

I want to stay aware of my needs and take care of them before they become critical issues. Very much the same approach I have at my job. If I merge all of my worlds and maintain a healthy balance I will have a joyful life experience!

Today is Mother’s Day and it always makes me so very grateful for my two precious daughters. I’ve told them many times but I don’t know if they really understand that having them didn’t just change my life – it gave me life.

As sure as if we were born to each other the three of us have been connected in such a special way all of our lives. Today I will honor and remember my own mother who is gone but be thankful for the tremendous joy I have in being a Mother!

In ancient Ireland the main Beltane fire was held on the central hill in 'the navel of Ireland', which is located in what is now County Westmeath.

It signaled the beginning of summer with great bonfires to mark a time of purification and transition, heralding in the season with hope of a good harvest later in the year.

I am always fascinated at how our modern day observances began. And I love celebrations of transition and May Day is one of the most jubilant!
