It isn't often that we think of death as a miracle, but the impending transition from this life to another, hopefully better one at the Rainbow Bridge has been an odyssey my girl Lacey and I have shared together.  There are so many lessons in her last days on this earth.  She prepares to leave th...

For all the rest of the things in life, they are just that.  No more, no less.  The real gift and the real joy comes from the love you share with the special people in your world.  I'm blessed to have the sweetest boys look at me with a twinkle in their eyes (well, not so much the dad :)) and lo...

Fall reluctantly gives way to the rapidly approaching winter on Long Island's north shore.  I love to see the mix of colors interspersed with barren branches reaching for the sky as we look out at a perfect day.  There is a quiet beauty to all the seasons if we just look beyond our door.

Today is the last day to enter the contest asking the question, "What would you do with $220 in savings this year," referring to the savings in ink costs, using Kodak printer ink.  I could reach for the Miss America answer and say, "to promote world peace and end global hunger," but the truth is ...

We're on countdown now to Thanksgiving, probably my favorite holiday of the year. My early memories play like an 8 millimeter movie with my mother in the lead role as she valiantly carried the enormous turkey to an already overcrowded table. The cast remained the same over the years, revealing ch...

I didn't have to look up into the late afternoon sky to know there was a full moon today.  The minute I pulled out of my driveway this morning it was crystal clear something was amiss.  Though there was a red light at the corner and not a car in sight, by the time I backed up a few feet onto the...
