When the Sunshine Awakens


I love when the sunshine awakens on my pillow,

nuzzling closer

whispering her dreams,

I hold on to each

sacred moment,

quietly thankful,

for my most sacred treasure

and the light

of her radiant smile.

Broken Light


I’m amazed at how we as broken people can carry

so much light within,

as if heaven pushed back

the grey clouds

destroying the hold,

the seduction of darkness

as if their healing

had already begun….

they become light bearing vessels.

Happy New Year!


Where ever you are around the world, may your dreams take shape, and take flight, this coming year!

May you be lifted higher than you ever could have imagined. May you be healthy and strong, with creativity flowing.

And may your spirit be filled with peace. Don’t forget….you are a blessing to others!

Happy New Year!

The True Strength of Leadership


Maybe God is preparing us for strong women leaders,

morally sound, committed

to our democracy

to our people

principles we all have

etched in our hearts,

especially when men fall

far, far astray,

following darkness

instead of the light….

Note: I’m not advocating for Elizabeth Warren. There are many women, that would make an excellent president. Amy Klobachar?
