I am so so glad to be back in the swing of things this week.  Last week, I had a family emergency, that put my life as I knew it "on hold".  But now that I look back on it, life really was not "on hold" at all.  Life happens and that includes family emergencies. [...]

Closing my eyes I transport myself to the warm greens of Costa Rica, the morning sounds of macaws, parakeets and one crazy rooster, and the ultimate sunrise which unfolded before the world everyday.  I am so grateful for this trip and all that presented itself.One thing that presented itself was my impatience.
