Hope: One of Life’s Little Necessities

Hope: One of Life’s Little Necessities

Hope is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately.  And I’ve come to a realization. Hope is a necessity for life. There’s a phrase that goes; “Where there’s life, there’s hope…” but I’d put it; “Where there’s hope, there’s life.” When I feel hopeless, it becomes...
From Death Springs Life

From Death Springs Life

Honoring By Connection

Honoring By Connection

When I began this blog, I titled it “My Morning Mimosa” because I wanted it to be lighthearted, fun, like sitting on a Sunday morning having brunch with your best friend talking about life. I also wanted it to be something insightful, but a bit tongue-in-cheek about...
