Greetings All

Time sure does fly by and life can change in an instant. I remind myself everyday, life is a gift and I never take it for granted.

I love my daily walks.  When out in nature, I am totally in the NOW.  My mind is clear, sometimes I pray, sometimes I hum, sometimes I just listen. This is my living in the moment time.  Joy overwhelms me and I always return with a smile and feeling at peace.

It has been a number of years that since I wrote Tree Spirited Woman and writing this book changed my life.   I have met wonderful people from all over the world, had opportunities to present workshops, give talks at churches, schools, book clubs and retreats.  I have had the privilege of mentoring women authors through the process of publishing and marketing.   I am so Blessed.

I have you the readers to thank for purchasing Tree Spirited Woman and for leading me on new and wonderful paths.  I appreciate being invited into your lives and hearing your stories.  Every note,  e-mail I receive I have read and cherished.    Thank you.

Please share love and  kindness with everyone.

God’s Peace,
