QOTW:  Do you have a Bucket List?

QOTW: Do you have a Bucket List?

Next week, I’m turning the Big 5-0.  My birthday is February 29th but since Leap Year didn’t see fit to make an appearance on such a milestone birthday, February 28th it is.  To be honest, I bob and weave between “I’m 50 and Fabulous, Phenomenal”, and a bunch of other over-the-top adjectives and “Oh Crap, there are pr
QOTW:  When you think of your home, what immediately comes to mind?

QOTW: When you think of your home, what immediately comes to mind?

For the last few months, my husband and I have been thinking about where we would like to go to celebrate my 50th birthday in 6 months.  Of course, where we go is important but how long we’re there is important, too.  See, for me, no matter where I am or what I’m doing, after a relatively short period of time, (no more than 4-5 days) I want to go home.  Now I’ve been to s
QOTW:  Have you read any good books lately?

QOTW: Have you read any good books lately?

Let’s cut to the chase: Here's why I think you should read my book, “ The Joy Journey.” Everybody has a story to tell and every life is filled with plot twists that not only shape the lives of the soul telling the story but can uplift, inspire and encourage those on similar paths or will travel the same road one day.  Have you ever gone through something and felt completel
QOTW:  What do you think is the greatest threat to society today?

QOTW: What do you think is the greatest threat to society today?

Last week, I was a woman in mourning.  I mean I was in utter shock at the level of evil surrounding me and those I love.  There are plenty of ills in our society, from dangers facing our environment, threats of financial ruin, to uncertainty with our healthcare system.  Our elderly citizens are neglected. Our veterans, who should be our heroes, are disrespected.  But of all these atrocities, f
QOTW:  Who’s more sensitive, men or women?

QOTW: Who’s more sensitive, men or women?

I feel like I need to preface this post by reminding my readers that there are no facts here, only opinions and that what I'm about to express are my general observations.  With that said, let’s pass the Kleenex to…. Men. Ok, the Kleenex is just a metaphor but I honestly do think men are more sensitive than women. Notice I didn't say emotional but sensitive. Us women have the emotional th
QOTW: In terms of value, how would you rank these three: Love, Health and Time?

QOTW: In terms of value, how would you rank these three: Love, Health and Time?

This week’s QOTW is really meant to be pondered rather than answered.  It’s impossible!  All three are such precious elements in our lives how can we rank one over the other?  While they may have equal value, they don’t offer the same amount of flexibility, for lack of a better word.  Let’s break this down, shall we? Love.  Love in our lives is as essential as the air we breathe. I thin
QOTW:  How well do you think you can ever really know someone?

QOTW: How well do you think you can ever really know someone?

For the last week or so, my youngest daughter has been living at home while she prepares to move into her new apartment. She left for college in 2015 and has been living either on campus or in her own place since then so this past week marks the first time we’ve lived together, day in and day out, for some time now.  Of course college broadens your horizons and introduces you to different people and
QOTW:  What’s your superpower?

QOTW: What’s your superpower?

Ok, before you tell me you can see through walls or transports yourself through time, may I respectfully direct you to the sci-fi blog I’m sure you can find somewhere out there on the world wide web. I’m not talking about anything as obvious as the graphic implies.  I’m talking about your thing, or "power" for lack of a better word, that stands out in your make-up. We all have something
QOTW:  Does your spouse have to be your best friend?

QOTW: Does your spouse have to be your best friend?

“On this day____ years ago, I married my best friend.” ….” Happiness is being married to my best friend” …” Happy anniversary to my soulmate, lover and best friend.”  Sound familiar?  How many times have you seen that posted on Facebook alone? I know I have.  Shoot, I’ve said it – many times.  Welllllll, I’d like to re-examine that one.  That’s what this blog is all about, r
QOTW:  Can a person really be too nice?

QOTW: Can a person really be too nice?

The seemingly obvious answer to this question is a resounding YES, but I’d like to use this week’s post to really dissect the word “nice” -  what it is and what it is not, (in my humble opinion, of course). This morning, I was watching “Super Soul Sunday”, one of my favorite thought-provoking shows.  I was watching it with my mom and the topic was compassion.  Every time I watch it, I ca
