  1. Bow — “less”

    Currently, I experience a resistance to join the blog community without a neat bow to provide a thoughtful message.  Many times a patient has attended a session believing there wasn't much to say or even offer to me.  Frankly, I empathize with this notion.  Then a thought occurred to me -- I would still prepare a delicious meal to enjoy by myself.  Why would I deprive myself the pleasure of jo…Read More

  2. Laughter Is the Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

    Face muscle soreness, shortness of breath, redden face, tears streaming out of the eyes, mucus running out of the nose, coughing, bladder threatening to release urine, and stomach muscle achiness.  Does this sound like fun to you?  When the traits of laughter are presented, it appears rather odd that I love to laugh.  Maybe the joy of laughter is generational. My grandmother would be scolded by…Read More

  3. The Deception of 6 Easy Steps

    The outdated, frayed loveseat appeared sadly out of place next to the new modern sofa set.  Rather than discard the old piece of furniture, I thought a slip cover would give a fresh facelift and still provide comfort for the dog to catch a snooze.  I read on-line reviews ranging from satisfaction to being a "pain in the ass" and I also watched a video for fit tips about slipcovers.  Eventually …Read More

  4. Wedding Gown and SUV

    I tossed and turned all night.  Nerves and excitement radiated through my body.  Would I find the right gown?  Will I have the teary experience as seen on TV when the bride just "knows" this is the ONE?  Since elementary school, I fantasized about wearing a long, dreamy wedding gown.  The bridal consultant greeted my mom, my maid-of-honor and me at the front store door.  The consultant asked…Read More

  5. Fun for All Ages

    The main artery roads are separated by bright orange barrels to direct traffic for the State Fair.  A brilliant colorful marquee announces it's soon arrival.  While local residents sleep, trucks and trailers appear during the night in the designated acreage.  The Farris wheel, tea cup, and haunted house rides are almost covertly erected with skill and efficiency before day breaks.  The empty b…Read More

  6. Vacation and Relaxation

    Last Thursday sitting on a sandy beach watching the waves crash, I felt the warm sun on my skin.  My dear friend, Jen, was beside me and we were catching up on events and laughing.  We see each other only once a year because we live in different states.  Jen and her family are wonderful hosts -- taking me to the best bar-be-cue joints in the south, watching funny movies, taking me for a ride on…Read More

  7. Lessons from the Knitting Circle

    My family and I surrounded my grandmother's hospice bed.  She appeared a stranger.  Her body was eaten by cancer, her face sunken with a yellow complexion, her breath rattled, and her bones protruded under the hospital blanket.  An exquisite maroon colored prayer shawl draped around her shoulders.  As her last breathes were fading, I recalled how the shawl provided comfort to my grandmother du…Read More

  8. Desire Honored

    "Hello," I answered the phone in a sing-song voice seeing  my friend's name on caller ID. On the other end of the line I heard a small soft hiccup sound.  "Wendy," (a pause filled with weeping) -- I gently responded, "I'm here." "Am I a bad mom?," barely audible asked my friend, Rachel. Immediately my mind raced -- Oh boy, she'd only been a mother for 2 weeks and haunted by a question many paren…Read More

  9. New Kid on the Block

    When I was in 4th grade, my parents transferred me mid-year into a new school.  The principal escorted us to the classroom.  I wore a fresh navy checkered-jumper uniform with a white blouse and navy tights with black loafers.  I felt terrified and awkward meeting students who already had established friendships.  Plus, I looked like something from a horror film with a brown grotesque scab on t…Read More

  10. Seven Year Itch

    Let’s say you are in the midst of the seventh year of your marriage. You are both kind of coasting through the relationship and it has been somewhat pushed to the side. You may or may not have tried counseling but with kids, social engagements, a mortgage and all of the other stuff that comes along with being a young married couple. You seem to fight more than you used to and about more and more…Read More
