November 2012: It’s all good!

November snow on the ground in ColoradoYippee to one and all! It’s November and there are many things to be thankful for:


You see, since Colorado was a swing state we were inundated with ads. During commercial breaks we would see a minimum of ten political ads. That would be EACH commercial break. Crazy nuts, wasteful amount of money and painful to watch. 2012 Election Debate #3: Finally Over


A big thanks for our veterans. For those who stepped up and served. And special thanks to the military families who have their own world of issues and challenges to deal with. Veterans: May Peace Be With You Today


Two long time dear friends are arriving for a visit. One will leave just before Thanksgiving – the other will arrive just after. The sweet thing about long time friends is you don’t have to explain things. They know. They were there. And best of all, they still are. Our Time is Limited: Find Joy Bubbles


Yesterday was cold and snowy. The roads were icy. It was gloomy. Today — sunny, bright, blue skies, and dry roads for travel. Blue Skies and Unrest.


Thanksgiving Day (here in the US) is a holiday dedicated to spending time with family and friends and giving thanks for all our riches. What are you doing for Thanksgiving this year? Will you be with family or friends? Will you be traveling? Will you be hiking, skiing, hunting or something else? Some people have wonderful traditions and others are in limbo, longing to make good memories, wishing they could find that place to belong, hoping this will be the year when everything changes.  What will it look like for you?

The No Comfort Zone Weekly Challenge that I started in January 2012 (it seems like yesterday) is winding down and I continue to put myself out there and read different genre books, take classes, learn new job skills and each time I feel discomfort, I smile. The challenges keep coming my way and it’s all good. NO Comfort Zone 2012 Weekly Challenge.


There are so many wonderful blogs out there and I don’t get to them on a regular basis. Life keeps getting in the way!


Veterans: May Peace Be With You Today

I received this in my email from a dear friend this past week. The timing is perfect for  Veterans Day and for all those who have worried, wondered and prayed.

Veterans Day Parade- Longmont, CO 11-11-11The words are so soothing and calming. I thought you might enjoy reading them as well…

“May today there be peace within.
May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.
May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content with yourself just the way you are.

Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.”

All I can say is AMEN!

And thank you to all our veterans.
