A love letter to my mom

Every once in a while my mom will pick up the phone to find me on the other end saying, “I owe you an apology.”

Her response is usually a stammering, “Oh….uh….okay……..?”

One such conversation happened a couple years ago – it was in the early days of The Miracle Journal, and things were opening …

Will you love me even if I fail?

I had a big revelation last night.  Huge!

I have the opportunity to submit a Miracle Journal book proposal to Hay House Publishing – the biggest name in personal development books – that will be reviewed by the CEO of the company.  As a writer without an agent, that’s practically unheard of in the publishing …

A mystery wrapped in an enigma

I know this day will come once a year. No matter how I prepare myself, every year I feel like I’ve been sucker punched once again.

Each year, I think that surely by next year the hurt will have played itself out. 12 years later that hasn’t happened yet.

This morning when I awoke, it …

The Godfather’s Daughter

Sometimes healing finds you in the most unexpected places. For me, it was in the pages of a book about a mobster’s daughter.

I was excited to start reading it as soon as it arrived. I read the first three pages of the introduction…

And I had a total and complete meltdown.

I was completely …

Walking down the aisle

This weekend my predecessor at the newspaper came back to the area for a wedding.  Today she sent a really touching story about loyalty, commitment and focus.  She suggested that it might be good for The Journal.

I look up to Gail and respect her so much; I’m really honored to highlight her story and …

Sharp shooter

Over the weekend I did something brand new – I shot a gun for the first time!

In my continuing odyssey of super-cool things that the newspaper has sent me to do, I took a gun safety class that included a session at the firing range on Saturday.

Having never shot a gun before, I …

The miracle of a broken heart

Father and daughter hold hands

Not calling Mr. Blue Eyes over the last week has taken every bit of will power I’ve got.  I miss talking to him and I’m fairly certain he’d be happy to hear from me.

Here’s the problem – every time I think about talking to him, I go straight into victim mode.  “If I say …

Sweet memories from the Muppets

Today I went to see the new Muppet movie.  Oh, how joyful!!

It reminded me of some really sweet times with my dad.  On Sunday evenings we would sit together and watch The Muppet Show and 60 Minutes together. He enjoyed The Muppet Show as much as I did, and I got as engaged in …
