Christmas season has started at my house! Every Christmas is different for me since my home became an empty nest.  Last year because of house renovations, I didn't put up a Christmas tree for the first time EVER! This year though, I've already begun the festivities!...

Negativism has been a faithful partner for most of my life. I could always talk myself into a downward spiral so quickly, leaving myself very little room, if any, for hope.

We've all done it! 

We've all offended someone at one time or another. We've all experienced different responses as a result.

I live a simplistic life compared to many people. 

I am an empty nest parent, so no children or teens in my home. 

My plans usually only include my husband who happily defers to me when it comes to making plans for us.
