It’s no secret that I like to do whatever I can to stay in shape.  I eat properly about 90% of the time.  I exercise 4-5 times per week, either strength training or long-distance running, and I drink plenty of water and get enough rest.  As I get older, I can appreciat...

It is March and I am slowly emerging from my mental hibernation.  That’s what I’m calling it “mental hibernation”.  For years I have expressed that I wished that I could literally hibernate during the winter months.  Just disappear and not see anyone, not go outside, j...

To say that 2019 was busy would be an understatement and it wasn’t until I looked back at my calendar that I realized just how busy.  So many things happened in 2019.  So many changes. So many ups and a few downs and tons of lessons along the way.  Here’s a quick look...

It is wonderful to be grateful and to sing your praises, Lord Most High! –Psalms 92:1

  3. A strong body

  4. Amazing ch...

We are just days away from my most favorite holiday of the year (besides my birthday – okay that’s not a holiday but you know what I mean!):  Thanksgiving!  I love love love Thanksgiving.  It’s something about the smells of Thanksgiving and the gathering of all my love...
