Giving and receiving…and asking for what we want

Giving-and-Receiving

I’ve had two conversations in the last week that have got me thinking about what it means to give and receive, and also how important it is to ask for what we want.

I have a friend who is preparing to make a big move.  She’s been in the same Arizona-desert city for a long …

The gentle giant

When I was a girl, there were a lot of people who stayed in our home.  After all, we owned an inn! 

While most of the people were guests, there was also a steady flow of my parents’ friends who would visit the Horse & Hound Inn during their weekends and vacations.

Larry and …

Old friends are the best friends

josh and his girls

This weekend I got to spend time with two very old friends, Josh and Jen.  We met in 7th grade, and for a year and a half, we were inseparable.  Then life happened – Jen moved out of the area.  I moved to a different school.  By the beginning of ninth grade, our little band …

Finding the core

Recently I found this in a bag of baby carrots:

As I’ve mentioned a few times in the last month or so, I’m going through a period of deep introspection, processing and healing.

When I saw this carrot, it seemed like the perfect embodiment of what I’ve been doing: going straight the core and …

The Miracle Journal video project

Hey Miracle Watchers!

Today I set out on a new adventure. My dear friend Dan Mitchell (who you may remember from the post Momentary Times) agreed to help me out for the day to get it off the ground.

The concept is that I ask people to talk to me on camera about the things …

A weekend to relax

Relax

This weekend a friend who is very dear to my heart came into town to visit.  I know that she’s had a lot of stress and craziness in her life lately, as have I.  It was such a blessing to just sit down and relax for a day. We laughed, we cried, we ate, we …

Three perfect gifts

iyanla_vanzant

I have received three Perfect Gifts in my life.  No, not the type that come out of a genie lamp or are bestowed by fairies upon a child’s birth.  I’m talking honest-to-goodness gifts that I could hold in my hand and unwrap.

What made them perfect?  Each of them was so incredible because I felt …

The makeup guardian angel

nerma

A couple of weeks ago I sent my friend Nerma this message:

“Would you teach me about makeup? Apparently I missed that class in high school and you got an A+.”

You may remember Nerma from the day of trying on wedding dresses.  She’s fresh out of college and worked for a while as our …
