Here we are … the last week of May. Another snowstorm in my neck of the country … and we are all wondering—are the veggies going to grow this year? This weekend, I’m immersed with dear friends Ellen and Glenda in Arizona – my body is looking forward to some sun rays, cooking with friends … and planning the gear up for start the rollout of my new book, When God Says NO. It’s the ideal book to have, and to give, to anyone who is going through (or has been through) rough times. I’ve been there. Done that. And come out of it. Discover my journey to where I’m at today.
It’s Memorial Day weekend. My heart and thank-yous to the men and women who have served, have given and are serving in our military.
