Chester Blue's Cyber Monday Sale!

God Loves You.  -Chester Blue
Gift Set only on

 The most surprising comment I received in reviews of  Chester Blue were from readers who wanted their own Chester Blue bear to remind them that wherever you are...
 God Loves You! 
With that in mind, I put together this gift set. It includes a paperback copy of God Loves You. -Chester Blue with a fluffy 21 inch blue bear from Ty's "My First Teddy". The beautiful blue teddy bear is the perfect companion to snuggle with as you read through the adventures of Chester Blue, the special bear sent with a very special message:  God Loves You!

Here's What I'm Grateful for this Thanksgiving (tear-jerker alert)

This five minute video sums up what I am most grateful for this Thanksgiving.

My beautiful Mom, working her way toward 86 with grace and beauty and humor. 

She's never stopped learning... over the past two years she's embraced a new found love of cooking. And she's become passionate and prolific in her culinary endeavors.

Or giving of herself, whether serving lunch every Thursday at the Senior Center, or acting as a fashion consultant and clothes re-hanger at the thrift store 'boutique'.

Mom has taught me what it means to live each day to its fullest, with optimism, and perseverance.

She is my rock.

When I fall into despair, she always points to the silver lining.

(Maybe that's the secret to a long life.)

I am eternally grateful for her. Every. Day.

Wishing you all a blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends and lots of good food.

God bless us all.

Week-Ending: A Commonplace Book

“Promise me you will not spend so much time treading water and trying to keep your head above the waves, that you forget, truly much you have always loved to swim.” Tyler Knott Gregson -

This is today's quote from

Being a former competitive swimmer, this quote touched me deeply and woke a few dormant memories in my brain, and reminded me that rather than embrace worry and fear, it's best to stop treading water, wondering if I am going to drown.

And much more productive to start swimming and see where that takes me.

At the very least, I won't be in the same place.

Make Your Voice Heard. Vote!

On Tuesdaywe will choose the person who will lead our great country for the next four years.
And here's what we all need to remember...every vote is equal. 
No matter whether you are a billionaire or pensioner, each vote carries the same weight. 

When you step into the voting booth, no one will look over your shoulder to see who you chose. 
Not your boss, who might want you to vote his way. 
Or your friends and family, who encourage you to vote their way.
This is your opportunity to make your voice heard about the issues that are important to you.
In the privacy of the voting booth, you are as powerful as the richest person in the world. 
Because each vote counts the same.
So, exercise your power.

If you can take advantage of early voting between now and Tuesday, vote.
If you have to stand in a long line on Tuesday, vote.
Whatever it takes, make your voice heard. 
In an election this close, you are the most powerful person in America.
We all are.
