A Disney Day

Every time I make it to Disney World I find new things, even this weekend, and other things I can appreciate.  I lost count of the number of times I have been lucky enough to visit, but there always seems to be something new and something traditional.  From new treats, to new shows, to new […]

Happily Every After

I’m a Disney fan, and I watch movies that generally have a happy ending.  My favorite Princess is Belle, from Beauty and the Beast.  I like her because she was able to look beyond what people see, to see the person inside.  I wish more people were able to do that.  I wish they could […]

Managing Disappointment

We all have dreams and goals.  We work hard to try to see those dreams come to life and try to believe in something we can’t see.  We plan, research, and hope, but sometimes dreams get interrupted.  That’s when we have to regroup and redefine our goals and dreams.  In working with people, I have […]

Something bigger than me

As I research topics to write about, things come up that help me better understand where I want to go.   As I reviewed the news and articles today, I found an article that talked about an understanding that we have a responsibility to the greater good.  As I continued reading other articles I started […]

Going to the gym

As much as I know, going to the gym is good for me, but that doesn’t make it any easier to get in the car.  I know that I am in good company, and there are a lot of people who agree that they know they should go but it’s hard to get out the […]

For My Mom

Posted on May 13, 2018 by in Family

Today is Mother’s Day, and for many it is a blessing, and a curse.  I’m am lucky to have my mother still with me.  She has been strong and supportive throughout my life, and I am so thankful for all the things that she taught me.  My mom wore many hats, just like I do […]

What do social workers do?

When I became a social worker, social work had a very bad reputation.  They were the people who took kids away, or didn’t do enough and people were hurt or died.  What I have come to understand is that social work includes so many things.  Social workers have their hands in so many areas, from […]

Surviving Infedelity

Surviving infidelity can be done, but it takes time, honesty, and patience.  For so many couples, infidelity can mean the end of relationships.  The pain associated with the loss can be devastating and change the course of the couple’s life, for better, or worse.  How the issue comes to light, the communication as a result, […]

Don’t be in a hurry!

So many times I hear people talking about being in a hurry.  I was lucky enough to spend this weekend at Disney.  I got to watch the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom and go for a walk at the Animal Kingdom this morning, and unfortunately, I was there in the rain.  Oddly enough I got […]

To marry or not to marry…

Today is a new day.  The past, where marriage was expected, is over.  Women are working and successful.  The age when people marry is later than it has ever been, and marriages still fall apart around half the time.  The idea of marriage is changing, so is marriage still important?  There are legal issues, married […]
