Life is full of ordinary miracles. Sometimes we recognize them and sometimes we don’t even realize they have happened until much later. Back in July of 2011 my family was headed down to Lake Powell when we experienced some pretty cool ordinary miracles happened to us. I shared the experience in a blog I wrote […]

“Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.”

Victoria Quintanilla is an angel, serving other angels.  Let me explain why.

“How People Treat You is Their Karma, How You React is Yours”

What a great reminder and quote from Wayne Dyer (who I think is a fabulous motivational speaker btw).  So often in life we find ourselves in situations where someone does something that: hurts us, is unkind to us, treats us poorly, is unfair to us, is dishonest to us, is disloyal to us, is ungrateful […]
