The Prayer of Saint Francis says it all, “It is in giving that we receive.”
One of our mom’s favourite thoughts
You’re closer to God’s heart…
Kiss of the sun for pardon.
Song of the birds for mirth.
You’re closer to God’s heart in a garden
Than any place on earth.
“God creates us with different gifts. Each one of us comes into the world with a different collection of life circumstances that often severely challenge us, things that give us joy and in expressing our talents allow us to bless the people, the world around us.”

“I wish you well on a rainy day
I wish you rainbows to brighten your day
To feel your quiet moments with a special kind of warmth
to remind you that happiness can happen
when you least expect it.
I wish you rainbows to make you laugh and smile
to show you the simple beauty of life
and to give you the magic of dreams come true.
I wish you rainbows
I wish you well.”
– Larry S. Chengges

Here are the stories that I have to share. They stem from my observations, my experiences, my joys, my anguish, and my pure love of writing. They describe, they explain, they argue, they laugh, they cry. They are for you.”
