So when my husband was going to be out of town on a weeknight when the Nats were playing at home, I decided to go to […]Read more "Stream of Consciousness Sunday – Take Me Out To The Ballgame"
I have made a career of being modestly successful of giving up things for Lent. And while much debate may rage, my mother is the finally authority on this matter – when you give up something for Lent, you GIVE IT UP.

Today I led a group discussion on the topic of risk taking. The only guidance I was given in leading the discussion was to ask each participant to tell me why she had chosen this particular topic (the attendees could choose from 7 different topics). As we went around the table, each woman talked about […]Read more "Risk Taking"
Doesn’t it make you feel special to be remembered? I know that each time it happens to me, whether in a restaurant or a coffee shop or a store I frequent, I’m always surprised and delighted. I never expect anyone to remember me. So it is even more special when it happens. One of the […]Read more "Being Remembered"
