    Happy Mother’s Day!

    My mother taught me everything I know about motherhood and one thing that stands out for me is her unrelenting dedication to me as her child, teen and adult.

  • Why are kids so mean?

    Why are kids so mean?

    I started to question why kids are so mean to one another after my daughter started high school and became a target of bullying and verbal attacks from her peers and classmates.

I know some and believe me, I never…

  • In retrospect, I could have been better

    As I look back on 2015, I realized that the year went rapidly fast for me while I struggled to play catch-up. My body, mind and spirit were disjointed throughout 2015 and when that happens, you are unable to achieve much. I experienced personal demons last year, got so muddled up in a fog of…
