Where I'm meant to be, right now....

  • May today there be peace within
  • May you trust your highest power that you are exactly where you are meant to be
  • May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith
  • May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you
  • May you be content knowing you are a child of God.

 When all things are done in Love, even the smallest and simplest actions become grand and profound


Although my life is quiet, simple, far from the madding crowd and the well worn path. I know that this is my path, the one meant for me to tread, right now.

I can't take every road on this life journey. Yet the one I take, I will take truly, madly, deeply.

I will believe in the path I walk and the words I speak, and make them both worth the believing...

...most of all I will try to Love well.
