You can't make everyone happy. You are not pizza. I learned this lesson in the early stages after opening my own business. Branching out on my own, clients were precious and I felt I could not lose any. There was a point one month were I wondered if I could afford to buy a tube … Continue reading Mmmm, Pizza

You can learn something new every day. My husband showed me this the other day. He asked, “Did you know VPL is a real problem? This commercial says so.” I said, “No, what's VPL?” Visible Panty Line. Wow, as a woman with a vast and extensive wardrobe, I never even considered it before that day. … Continue reading V.P.L. (Visible Panty Line)

I have to been alert to new possibilities and avenues to watch and assist people. I have always been a people watcher. No, … Continue reading I.C.U.
I have a lovely, creative friend who is a bit of a wordsmith. The way she plays with words astounds and amazes me, and always bring a smile to my face. We were discussing a situation last week and she emailed me her new, made up word: acquicceptance. At that moment it was like God … Continue reading Acquicceptance
Welcome to the one post that will change the way you look at your life forever! (I hope!) I recently finished a women's Bible study, with some beautiful sisters, entitled Exploring the Mystery Within. One of our first homework assignment was to make a list of five things we could declare about who we are. … Continue reading What’s in a name?
