I am writing this for Auds’ beautiful daughter, Meg. For some reason, I never expected to have children, despite Kathy King’s mumbo-jumbo “yarn” trick sophomore year that told me I’d be a mother to 16. I didn’t think I’d be married, either. I will admit that for awhile there, I DID wonder if maybe [...]

Hi! It’s that special time of year! A happy month of merrymaking and holiday cheer. Of friends, family, and fruitcakes. Of gifts from the heart and trees from the forest.

This is part 3 from my Road to Oprah series. (I was inspired by my dream last night). This is part 1. And part 2. I’ve been avoiding this. There’s way more to work through than I originally thought. Because I started with my mom. And that’s the hardest person to forgive. [...]
AGENDA ITEM #1: FINALLY FORGIVE OLD SLIGHTS The set-up: I think I’ve moved on. But when the person’s name comes up or I’m reminded of how I’ve been hurt by anyone, in any way, at anytime, my anger flashes. What’s that Oprah says?

This is part 1. AGENDA ITEM #1: FORGIVE (UPDATE) Well, this first agenda item is going OK. I spent a lot of my Road to Oprah time working primarily on forgiveness for my mom. I think that one’s the jim dandy and if I can forgive that, then the rest will come [...]
