Clear The Clutter In Less than 5 Months…Are You In?

  Friends, a couple of weeks ago I wrote a blog about getting organized and getting rid of old stuff to make room for new stuff.  If you recall, that is my resolution for this year.  Here’s the catch though, we don’t want to get organized and then get disorganized all over again!  There are areas of our home (and as some …

Thanksgiving Thoughts

Thou hast given so much to me, Give one thing more, – a grateful heart; Not thankful when it pleaseth me, As if Thy blessings had spare days, But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise. ~George Herbert   I’m one of those people who likes to take regular time-outs to examine their lives before and after a major …

One sided Conversation

On my way to work every morning, I usually listen to podcasts or audio books on my iphone. On this particular morning, I left the house 45 minutes earlier than I usually do because I wanted to hit the gym and work out before going to the office.
