    Not what it's cracked up to be. Well, there are cracks involved. Sand everywhere. ugh.

    It was yet another poignant trip as we were dropping off our son to go to New School University. It was hard to say good-bye and I cried all the way home. But NYC is amazing!

     This was a poignant trip for us as it was my son's Make-a-Wish trip. God bless all those who support this fine, life-affirming cause. My son had a once-in-a-lifetime trip and we still hold onto those memories now that he is gon...

    I wanted to write an inspirational story for Chicken Soup for the Soul books. I did it. Chicken Soup for the Soul Publishing will be printing my seventh story! My stories appear in the following titles: Chicken Soup for the Soul Family M...

    Perhaps I've been able to offer comfort to others already but I don't want to mark this item as 'completed' because I hope to continue to be a source of comfort and hope to more people as I travel along my life path. I su...

    We've actually adopted three dogs from a shelter. Two have passed on, but just about eight months ago, we found our precious little Suki. We never thought we'd fall in love with a chihuahua, but when we saw her shivering little f...

    I never believed in love at first sight. Lust, maybe. Infatuation, sure. But when the man I would marry walked into my life one day, we both felt as though all the stars aligned. When we were both very small children, we lived thousands ...

    It seems like an incredibly divine, magical act--to create another living human being from my own physical body. We humans take this miraculous ability for granted, but the reality is that a life forming out of cells dividing into more c...

    I have enjoyed seeing my stories appear in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.

    I was blessed to be born in Hawaii where I counted rainbows overlooking a green, misty valley.

    Did this as a child. There were so many that my mother made me dump my pockets. Too bad sellers and tourists took all the puka shells and now there are no more to be found. :(

    Sharing the knowledge you've gained spreads awareness and enlightenment. Education is light. I'm thankful that I've been able to share the knowledge that has been imparted to me throughout my years via writing articles, ebooks and teachi...

    I loved being a little child growing up in Hawaii where I played on white sandy beaches and in warm, crystal blue waters. There's nothing like the rush and power of the ocean!

    I am fortunate to be able to to this often. Just sit on the grassy knoll overlooking Laguna Beach, California and breathe in the ocean air. In a shady park next to a trickling creek. Along the Santa Ana River flanked by oaks, eucalyptus,...

    We did it! :)

    I didn't understand friendship when I was a small child because my family was closed and tight-knit by culture. Friends were casual outsiders who floated in and out of our lives, and while nice, they were never as close as family. But as...

    My sister gifted my little girl with Easter chicks and ducklings. My daughter dislikes birds so I ended up caring for them because I'd always wanted to have chickens. They were adorable. The ducks paddled around in my bathtub and the chi...

    It feels amazing to assist nature in bringing forth life! The power of nature humbles me, and I have always wanted to plant seeds to watch them grow, inhale the fragrance of blooms, harvest edibles... And I have! I have tilled the soil a...

    A deep, sustained belly laugh is good for the soul. I've been blessed to enjoy side-splitting laughter many times throughout my life. Laughter is healing--and just plain fun. :)

    My mother taught me how to make the juiciest, most tender roast turkey when I was still a child. Now, cooking a complete Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings (for 20+) is one of the easiest meals to prepare--and yes, with homemade ...

    Oh, to glide across the dance floor like those beautiful dance professionals! I always like to dance and watching dance movies like "Shall We Dance?" "Take the Lead" and "Dancing with the Stars" made me yearn to take a ballroom dance cla...
