I love learning about who I am thru the eyes of another. I was recently interviewed for Thrive Global. The questions made me think and to deeply explore who I am. I had to ponder my choices, my obstacles, my foibles, my desires and the passions of my heart. It’s interesting to see it in print. Especially the questions about advice for young people and the forum of healthy living. Thank you thrive for the reflection of my life and thank you everyone for being part of this miraculous journey.
My clothes were tangled in the washing machine and I had to use all my strength to unsnarl them. Seems so funny when I watch how others use their dexterity and physical strength. Here’s a memory from my trip to Cuba. An enthusiastic acrobatic show that had me on the edge of my seat. Just phenomenal
What a great night. A Rose by any other name is still a Rose. A Girls Night and Bachelorette Viewing party was sparked by the question; What is love. Each answer was profound, deep, meaningful, enlightening, rich, inviting, heartfelt and truly inspirational. Laughter, joy, enthusiasm, and excitement filled the house organized by our sister, friend and super host the official and our one and only “Rose” https://youtu.be/fMEP27ULX1E
Another amazing year. Thank you Jim Thomas and the U.S.A. Martial Arts Hall of Fame for an enchanting evening and an incredible event.
Thru the years I have so many pictures with my Mom. Each photo is special and every moment and memory is precious and priceless in time. My Mom and I have such a remarkable relationship. She is my hero, my idol and my very best friend. We make each other laugh and we support each other thru life’s twists and turns. We are explorers, adventures, playmates and a united team. A mother and daughter team that is unstoppable, unbeatable and fueled with love. This Mother’s Day we celebrated by attending the Stars on Ice Show and our smiles beamed as the skaters danced before our eyes. Mother’s Day brunch with the family and a day filled with fun, joy, excitement and cheer. I looked for a photo to post and this picture has always touched my soul. I’m here inside her, helping my mom become a mother and my two grandmothers are beside her. Three generations on a lovely summer day at the beach and my very first 3 generational photo. I feel so blessed to be in this family and truly, I trust, I am the luckiest girl in the world to have you as my Mom. Wow. What a wonderful life. I love you Mom. Happy Mother’s Day. Happy every day with you.
