A Simple Blessing for Your Body

(1) Comments | Posted August 12, 2013 | 12:45 PM

A few months ago, I purchased an activity tracker (or what I like to call my "fancy pedometer"). Before I started using this little contraption, I mistakenly believed that I was a reasonably active person. Unfortunately, as it began to track my every move, I had to face the fact...

Is there someone in your life whose mere presence drives you crazy?

(12) Comments | Posted May 20, 2011 | 8:34 AM

(9) Comments | Posted February 26, 2011 | 1:26 PM

A dear friend of mine cannot seem to let go of an old hurt. His marriage ended in the 1970s, and she passed away a few years ago, but thoughts of his ex-wife are still very fresh in his mind. We will be having a conversation, and something unrelated will...

Good Enough Just as We Are

(20) Comments | Posted December 1, 2010 | 3:02 PM

More than a year ago a good friend sent me an email that I've saved in my inbox. Every now and then I open it. It always makes me smile. She wrote: "Just a reminder, in case you forget: You are perfect in every way. Say it. Know it....
