I am trying to find meaning in my life. I am trying to be happy. This web page is a product of that. There is so much to see in the world, that I am trying to push hurt and anxiety away from myself to leave room for the hopefulness of those things. What makes you happy? What unburdens you and de-stresses your life?

This Too Shall Pass

It was one of those days.  Rainy, dreary, the works. But I could not help but think that this too serves it’s purpose. That the earth needs the rain, that we need cloudy days in order to really appreciate the sun filled ones. It was hard for me to concentrate today, yet I made it through the day. I remember being a small girl, loving to read on rainy days. I hope you too can find meaning and powerful, motivating memories in gloomy days. Because this too shall pass.

What thoughts help you get through the rain?

A Rose By Any Other Name Would Smell As Sweet….

Did you know that there are more than 15,000 rose species? That almonds, pears, apples, cherries, peaches, plums and apricots are in the rose family? That rose petals are edible and taste like strawberries and green apples? YES! It’s all true.  Roses are versatile and beautiful. Their fragrance is heavenly and they symbolize love, hope and nature’s perfection. What is your favorite rose and color? Did you ever try rose flavored ice cream? Do you use rose perfumes, lotions and/or aftershave? I love everything about them. Nothing could be so beautiful as  a rising orange sun on a hot summer day, amongst a garden of roses. What do you roses remind you of?
