“You can trust me with that.” Emphasis on the word THAT when my husband said it. As in – – – I can trust him with my life – – – when I can’t decide for myself because of a potential health condition. Really? My health care proxy paperwork is needed by the cancer hospital because […]Read more "You Can Trust Me With THAT"
I’ve always known I was rare. I know my gifts and talents are precious treasures. My devotion and friendship are cherished by friends, of course not so by my husband, but that’s not the topic of today’s blog. I didn’t know, until my recent diagnosis, though, that I’m one in a million. Actually, 1.5 in […]Read more "One In a Million"

I was talking with her and […]Read more "Unexpected Gifts"

So, as often happens, the universe guides me. I listen. I happened to see a link to a video on Twitter about one of the “biggest intimacy killers” for couples who’ve been affected by infidelity. I don’t read or watch videos about betrayal daily anymore as I spend time on MY recovery – yoga, mindfulness, […]Read more "Resentment and Healing From Betrayal"
