Here's Something New To Feel Good About Today!
"A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things - a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty." John Grogan, Marley and Me, 2005

I was raised in the Boston area and then lived in NYC for most of my life. My last residence was on Long Island, just 5 miles from the beach. So the impact of this storm and those I love living in NY, NJ and the Boston area has really touched me very deeply. Over the last few days, I called each of my friends and family members living along the hurricane path to let them know I am concerned and thinking of them. Everyone was very appreciative and promised to keep me posted on their welfare after the storm passes.
One friend living in lower Manhattan had to evacuate with her husband and young children, she is fortunate to be offered her friend's apartment to stay in. Another placed all her possessions in storage and she and her family will be staying with her sister's familyRead More »from Love People, Use Things
"There are moments in our lives that make all the difference,
but it's the people in our lives that change us forever.
Those who help us to transform for the better
leave their 'HandPrints' on our hearts."
Marlene Moore GordonImagine if over a four year period of time you lost 19 beloved people and pets?
How might you feel, if during this same time you suffered the demise of your once successful career, found your new husband laid off and having to undergo major back surgery, just as his two teenaged daughters arrived on your door step in need of a home?
How would you make sense of the haunting memories of the 9/11 tragedy forever etched in your mind, after you witnessed firsthand the burning of the Twin Towers, saw the countless photos plastered everywhere, and felt the pain of the masses searching frantically for lost loved ones?
Could you cope with moving four times during all this, due to major financial loss?
These were the traumaticRead More »from HandPrints On My Heart, Share Your Story!

Have some fun with a friend today! Dance, Sing, Laugh, just enjoy each other's company!
Some of my happiest memories are of hanging out with a friend. Telling jokes, freestyle dancing, forgetting lyrics to songs, being imperfect with each other and just getting silly.
