Those of you who know me, know that I am not a guru when
it comes to the Internet. However, I am blessed to have
some angels in my life who help me in this area. Heather
O’Hara is one of these beautiful souls, as is my
assistant, CoraLyn Hughes. Together, they enable me to
reach you, your friends and others everywhere who may be
interested in learning more about how extraordinary we
are and how we can better navigate the many challenges
the assistance of these two women, I have created a
and a special group named
Touched by the Extraordinary. This group is
meant to be a place where like-minded souls can come and
share stories of how they have been touched in ways that
enable them to feel and know they are not alone and that
there is reason to be hopeful.
You may wish to check
this out. It offers you the opportunity to not only
share your stories but to also engage in discussion with
others from all parts of the world. I have found this
experience to be especially meaningful and satisfying.
In the meantime, my
wish for each of you is to treasure this very
moment, this very day and those with whom you are
sharing your life. Take time to let others who are
important to you know just how much you care for them.
The quality of your life rests completely in the choices
you make. Choose wisely and choose what feels good.
Choose Hope and
“Love like hope heals. It is the very foundation of
prayer. If we allow hope to mingle with love, the
problem of false hope will evaporate.”
With Warmest Blessings of Love & Hope,

Thank you for taking the time to do this.
