What is love?  It's a simple yet profound question.  Ask any two people what love is and answers will vary.  For some, it's that intense feeling of falling, the thrill of excitement; of being with someone new.  For others, it's security in knowing they aren't alone in this great convoluted thing we...

What are you passionate about?  Have you ever had someone ask you that?  Sure you've probably had people ask you "how's your day going?" or "How's the weather;”  but what about your passion?  What makes you giddy with pleasure or want to whirl like a dervish at being able to do...

This past weekend, my daughter and I enjoyed a "girls only" float trip down the Illinois River with my sisters in law and their daughters.  It's picturesque where we went; tall pine trees, large green hills, blue sky..not what you normally expect for Oklahoma.  We wanted to get away from...

You open the door and hear the chime of the bell announcing your arrival.  They are all waiting for you; pining for your attention.  Will you look their way, or will you be dazzled by another?  Silent, they plead for you to "pick me, pick me."  You walk down the aisles looking left then...

It's that time of year again, when summer has come to an end.  Good times have been had and storms have been weathered and now it's time to get down to business.  The kids are in school and already asking when their next "break" is.  "Good grief," I tell them, "School just...

A few months ago, I took a trip to Rodanthe, NC, a.k.a. The Outer Banks.  It was my first time to see the ocean up close and it was absolutely breath-taking, awe-inspiring yet it made me feel rather insignificant.  My daughter, mother and I spent our days on the beach searching for shells, building...

I tend to be a night owl as it's the only "free" time I get away from husband and children.  So, one night, I was enjoying my quiet time and watching a bit of t.v. when I heard a faint sound. Curious, I hit the mute button on the remote, and listened more intently.  Sure enough, I heard...
