Grieving, honor, and gardening

              I honored my mom. Over a year ago my mom left this earth to sit beside her best friend and gaze upon his eyes for the first time. Several months after that day my brothers, nephews, and husband helped my dad take care of some yard work. I put on gardening gloves and carried a bucket to the weed garden. My mom’s favorite place in the yard was her garden. For over 40 years this 10X20 patch of dirt grew the food that was on our table almost every night of the week....

Your Choice

             One day last week I went to a large craft/ hobby store for a specific item that I had seen there before. After wandering the entire store two times I saw an employee with a loaded cart of art supplies staring at the frame display. I slowly wheeled close to her and said, “Excuse me.” I’ve done this many times, and the employees always point me in the right direction. Without taking her eyes of the empty frames she said in a stern voice, “Mam?”  I honestly did not know if she had phone...

You're Beautiful

This blog is inspired by the song “You’re Beautiful” by Phil Wickham.             While I was getting ready to head to the office this morning, looking in the mirror at the blank slate in front of me, an amazing song came on Pandora that spoke thoughts out loud.

My Amaryllis have FINALLY bloomed, those of you that don’t know about this...

When you pull into the parking lot there is a space with your name on it. You have your own office with a downtown, ocean or mountain view, or all 3. Your employees actually smile while telling you good morning. The office is always tidy and clean, and the air smells like the great outdoors. It runs like...

Client Letter to Self: Lost Innocence

             Several months ago a new client walked into my office. He was in his 30’s and unemployed, an associate had worked with him several sessions regarding career goals and the issue of Pornography came up. He was referred to me because it was naturally affecting his marriage and other relationships. During the 3rd individual session I challenged him to write a letter to himself as a child attempting to change his perception. You see, he was only 10 when his curiosity took hold of him and he popped in a VHS tape he had...
