One Way to Cleanup Clutter

bar none ranctWe began moving into the ranch house in late August. One thing I love when I walk in the door is that there is little clutter. I plan to keep it that way and I also plan to cleanup the clutter in our home in town. It helps that I’m bringing those “extra” things that I didn’t want to part with ...

Cleanup the Clutter

buckWe just returned from a hike up the mountain on our ranch. In case someone doesn’t know, mule deer shed their antlers in the spring. I learned recently (since buying the ranch) that when you find one of the antlers it is called “finding a shed”. Last week my husband, Rich, found one… and this afternoon I found one. It seems to be ...

An Opportunity for a New Relationship

An Opportunity for a New Relationship

The media has recently carried several stories involving children being abused; it is regrettable. My youngest son and his wife had their first baby in September … what a wonderful bundle of joy. While I have two other grandchildren, the birth of the third was just as special as the first. Our first meeting was a reminder of the miracle that is birth and the innocence of this little bundle.

As I held little Connor, I could not help but wonder ...

Building Community

25-String on RollI am constantly amazed by how images “get people to the heart of the matter”. I am part of a new group forming to support philanthropic community organizations with donations. A group of 6 women who were new to each other or only knew each other minimally.

Everyone was excited when I invited them to use an image as part of introductions. ...

Asking vs. Telling

questionmarkSome of my work involves working with educators and students; it is quite rewarding. Teachers who utilize coaching skills as they work with students report increased success because they change the way they communicate.

Caring & Trust

Teddy RoosaveltTheodore Roosevelt is credited with saying that “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care” … this is particularly true when applied to kids. I believer “care” is directly related to trust.

Think how many relationships a teacher must build with students times during a single school year. In a high school on a “bloc’ schedule, teachers may teach as many as 350 students in ...

Fear Has a Message

37-mummyAnother message about fear came to me in a weekly video. It was that any fear that comes to me contains a message. If I ask, Fear will tell me. An old fear appeared to me this past weekend and then I dreamed about it. When I wake up I realize the fear is unsubstantiated, even not real for me. But what if ...

Find Courage & Trust in Your Heart

Heart sculptureI read a novel, usually a mystery, every night before I fall asleep. Last night the crazy poet in the story was speaking to the detective about the missing artist. “Ruth” said that fear lives in the head; courage lives in the heart. Our job is to get from one to the other knowing that between the two is the lump in ...
