Living the Sweet Life: Daily/Weekly/Monthly

Hey Sweet Lifers! Oh my it’s January again! How did that happen? Most of us, especially over the past few years, have been doing a scramble to try to find some normalcy in routines and goal setting just really well for me has not been top of mind. Getting things done and holding on to what feels right in...

Living the Sweet Life: The Spirit’s Song

Hey Sweet Lifers! Every now and then something happens that makes you stop and realize there’s always an angel on your shoulder. Always.

Living the Sweet Life: Stupid Strong

Living the Sweet Life: I Am The “Keeper”

Recently I received a call from my Aunt Carolyn who has decided to downsize her home and as a result, created for herself a forced purging of things.

Living the Sweet Life: Right Now, in My Sweet Life, Nothing is Missing

Hey there my sweet lifers! As we celebrate the month of May with flowers and showers of love towards our mothers, I must say that right now, in this moment, not one thing is missing. This has not been the case for most of my life as May brought a day that I could not celebrate and a sadness that I could not...

God Will Always See Things Through

Well, my Sweet Lifers, how are you? Do you feel like we are living in a vortex of surrealness?  Hopefully you are hibernating like the butterflies in my garden just waiting for Spring. It certainly has been interesting with the pandemic and the “Great Deep Freeze of Texas!” In times of uncertainty, I...
