Lessons Learned from Little Due Amici

April 9, 2013


This is my Little Due Amici.  She is my furry companion on this journey called life who has unknowingly, or at least I think so,  taught me a few life lessons (some I knew, but simply needed a reminder).  Little Due had somehow gotten lost from her mom and family, and found herself on her […]

The Job I Wasn’t Made For…

March 30, 2013


A lunch discussion prompted this post.  The discussion was about jobs and revolved around a job each of us had which pretty much was the job you weren’t made to turn into a career.  Yep, I had one of those. The job?  Well, it was in sales.  The company?  A water softener company.  There was […]

Days go by and still I think of you

March 4, 2011


  Ahh, grief is an interesting creature isn’t it?  So interesting how one can go through the grief process watching life flowing by at such a different pace than you feel like your treadmill is moving.  I’m watching a friend dealing with the sudden loss of a close sister and feeling the moments of grief […]

Against All Odds

October 8, 2010


There are moments in life when I think we realize we are against all odds.  Life happens, and at times, well, not exactly what had been planned, and at times, well, painful at best.  At least, I know I’ve experienced those tides of life.  What is beautiful to me is that the human nature is […]
