I follow the Dalai Lama on Twitter (@DalaiLama) and every once and awhile one of his tweets really hits home. These last few months have been challenging in so many ways. For me – it is a constant struggle between the known, the unknown and the interpretations of everything in between.

Staying Positive

This has been a rough month at my house, iPhone drop, car problem, death of our family pet, son with a broken arm, and last Thursday, my knee surgery.

A year ago today I felt like if I could just be with her – I could give her some of my strength and love – and that would be enough to get her through all of this…. Read More »
