There Will Come a Day

"There will come a day when tomorrow will start without me. Without you. So each day we are afforded, should be relished like a treasured gift. A shiny new opportunity to celebrate…to hug a friend…to take a chance…to smile at a random stranger…to giggle…to fall…to soar…to forgive…to feel the warmth of someone’s hand in fall again…to dance…to look to the heavens in awe…to marvel at the wonder of our beating hearts…to pray…to LIVE fully and completely. Each day is a gift. Unwrap it. Experience it. Enjoy it."

It is Really Important to be Kind

"It is really important to be kind to others in thoughts and actions – but equally important to treat yourself with the same care. You are a work in progress and you are perfectly imperfect. Don’t be so hard on yourself. 

Look in the mirror. That majestic being looking back at you is one of a kind, worthy of love, affection and everything beautiful. So be your own cheerleader. Live joyfully. Enjoy the journey.

Happy Thursday Beautiful!"

After Completing the Marathon

I am not ashamed to admit that I cried when I crossed the finish line at today's NYC marathon (26.2 miles). This was my first full marathon and it was a very humbling, terrifying, exciting, grueling and incredibly gratifying experience -- and probably one of my most challenging endeavors!!!! It was an amazing adventure and I am so grateful to have experienced it all -- the good, the bad and the ugly. This 52 year old body is sore but my soul soars!!!

Congratulations to all the finishers! 

Just remember. You can do ANYTHING you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance and facing your fears. -- Gillian Anderson

Goodnight friends. Sweet dreams.
