I read this posting on facebook this morning~~ “your beliefs don’t make you a better person~~your behavior does.”   Feeling in a rather Grinchy mood, I wanted to stand up and applaud my friend for posting this.   It ties right into my beliefs that “there is talk and then there is the behavior,”  and my ultimate favorite, “walk your talk.”  I am well aware that this is the twelfth month of the year, December, and that this is the proverbial time for “Peace on Earth, Goodwill toward Men.”   Oh, how I wish this could happen.  
So, once … (1 comments)

Many, many years ago I cracked open a Fortune Cookie and my fortune read, “The best things in life are not things.”   Now, I am a firm believer in these words and if you have read a Ramblings or two, you know this to be true.   On September 7th, these words became intensely  real as I was forced to put that statement into action.   Mother Nature was on a rampage.   The threat of a wild fire much too close to our … (1 comments)

Today is our 46th Wedding Anniversary.  Congratulations to both of us.  In today’s world, I would call us “survivors.”   Try as I might, I cannot fathom where all those days, weeks, months and years have gone.  As with all marriages, there have been many ups and downs along the bumpy path of 46 years.   We have experienced some incredible highs~~times filled with joy and happiness as we watched our family grow and mature.  But, the flip side of that coin is that we have suffered periods of excruciating lows~~points in time where our souls were dying and … (9 comments)

Entering the building which houses the offices of California Oncology in Fresno, California, one’s eye and soul is immediately treated to an artistic feast of the celebration of survival.   The walls are adorned with the creative talents of Breast Cancer Survivors who participated in California Oncology’s “The Art of Life Project.”   Each individual painting, collage or sculpture symbolizes the “Colors of Courage.”   
My husband and I were in this building to celebrate, yes, celebrate with our daughter.  It was her last  Chemo infusion and it was our honor and pleasure to be there … (0 comments)
