  • That Famous Old Saying

    “Actions speak louder than words.” Many people use that famous old saying to see how someone feels about them. It is a policy that can help when dealing with love. I think it can only help if we truly see what another person does for us and what we do for them. This famous saying makes me think of love languages. How we show love and how we want to receive it differs per person. So yes, actions may speak louder than words, yet sometimes words have more meanings than actions.  I think it depends on the scenario. If you are a person who likes to see the actions of…

  •  Love and Fear

    “Give in to love, or live in fear.” – Rent Love is sometimes challenging. Because of our experiences, we can put up walls and fear being in a relationship with someone else. This encourages us to make more mistakes and tends to cause breakups. This often happens when a person suffers from a broken relationship and does not heal properly. Healing is needed when a person wants love in their life. Because without healing, love cannot thrive, which instead creates fear. I do believe in facing my fears and giving in to love. No matter how hard it can be. It will not always be easy to give in to…

  • Commitment and Fear

    Why is the word commitment a word that people fear? Why do we run? I have found that recently that people are often running from that word. They wish to dip their toes but not fully go head in. and why are they? Because fear is a huge factor in relationships. We all have them. We all fear something will happen. And these fears drive us either through something or away from something. And yes, sometimes our fears help us, but sometimes these fears hinder us. Fears can hold us back and make us lose. In many ways, I think this happens all too often. People allow their fears to…

  • Love is a Battlefield?

    Why is love so hard? As this iconic song suggests, love is hard. But is it really? I was recently asked if I got butterflies in my stomach or goosebumps when in love or around a specific person. I had to tell them no because that is not love, not to me. It is only what people suggest is love in movies and books. And yes, we can have these emotions before and fall in love with the person. But love is not a moment shared between two people. No, I believe love is moments [ plural ] shared between two people, which creates a stronger bond between the two…

  • It’s the New Year

    It is 2023 now, and we are off to a new year. Makes me wonder about our wishes and dreams for the following year. I have made some for this next year, as I am sure many of you have too. A new year can bring new beginnings and further the good things in life. Now how does this work with love and relationships? Well, a new year means you can start anew in a relationship or maybe even start going out and see what is out there for you. A new year can also mean making deeper connections with those you love. Finding a sweet spot in your relationship…

  • So this is Christmas

    Christmas has finally come and gone. I had a wonderful time with family and friends. I have come to think that this is what Christmas is all about. It is not about gifts or decorating. It is not about the food or goodies. It is all about our relationships and how we are with others. I love this time of year because it allows us to reflect and see who we are and what we want out of life. I like many things, but only two things I like most for the following year. I want success and love for me and everyone. As the song goes by John Lennon…

  • Need a Little of Christmas Cheer

    I need some Christmas cheer, how about you? This year it is a bit different. I feel different. Maybe it is because Christmas is on the weekend, and kids will not get out of school until Christmas eve, or maybe it is the fact that I am still waiting on the snow. Or maybe it is because I have not found that perfect new Christmas decoration? Whatever it is, I feel like I am behind, and Christmas is about two weeks away. Although I have done most of my Christmas shopping, I still do not feel like it is Christmas. I feel the Christmas magic and romance are missing this…

  • December Music

    As we enter December month, we start hearing Christmas music. How fun and joyful it can be when you are shopping or in the car and Christmas music starts to play that makes you wish to sing along. My favorite is when I am home and baking or cleaning. I will put the Christmas music on so I can sing and dance along with what I am doing. I find it puts more fun into what you are doing.  One thing I have seen in books but have never experienced is Christmas carolers. We often watch movies where Christmas carolers go to a home and sing. Now I have no…

  • My Newest Book

    My Noelle, my newest book, has come out for Christmas. It is a beautiful Christmas story. I will post a fireplace video each day on YouTube, each with the reading of part of my book. It is to give a little taste of my book during this Christmas season. You can buy my book on Amazon. I hope you enjoy it.

Noelle is confronted by this man who rubbed her the wrong way every time. How could a man be so cruel…

  • Being Sick

    One of the many things that come with this time of year is being sick. People will get colds and flues, and there is nothing we can do. This is not a fun part of this season, but a considerable part. We pray and hope that it all goes away before Christmas and all the activities of Christmas, but we do not know.  Being sick can be the worse, yet it can also show you what someone is like. Is your partner someone loving and wishing to take care of you or help you? Or is your partner fearful and wishing to stay away from you? And for those who…
