Bring on 2022 – we are resilient

Dear sis, My last blog subject was, “Let’s talk about Death baby.”    And now I am feeling, “Let’s talk about LIFE baby.” Over the last two years I have gotten to know my internal being.  And you know what?  I like her.  It’s not that I didn’t like her in the past.  I actually have never allowed myself to fully slow down and go within in order to get to know her.   Slowing down, spending alone time, simplifying…

Dear Sis, On Sunday January 24th, 2021, at 1:45am,  you transitioned to a place that is the unknown to us all.  But for you, this place is now your home.  A place where I believe you are loved by many and in no pain.  When our brother Brian called me on the Friday and said, “You need to get on the plane.  I need you here.”   There was not a doubt in my mind, I had to go.  Not just…

2020 – A year to remember or a year to forget ?

Dear Sis, I remember at the start of the year, so many people making big plans and predictions about the new year. “Wow, a new decade.  The power and energy that comes along with this.  Time to make big changes.  Time to take that leap of faith.”   But for me personally,  I was ready to go within.  To take care of my inner self. It was a year that definately rocked many peoples world.   It rocked me to…
