Four Meaningful Holiday Movies, Blogmas day 13

It’s Blogmas Day 13. Which means Christmas is 12 days away. Christmas and Blogmas is incomplete without noting heartwarming Holiday movies. Cozy up, turn on your device of choice, and feel the feels!

A (healthy) Christmas Cookie! blogmas, day 11

As part of blogmas I’m making healthy cookies. Being a sugar lover, I search for healthier treats. This cookie recipe belongs to Oprah & Deepak Chopra. As spiritually healthy people I decided the recommendation was worthy. While it’s not as adorable looking as traditional Christmas cookies, it tasted GOOD! The...

Writers Are Writing’s Steward!

Yes, writers are humans using words, punctuation, paper, pen, and laptops in private and in public to create a story. Be it a tale covering thousands of pages or a simple paragraph of a thoughtful awareness. While humans get credit for the creations, writing has an intelligence all its own....

Mining for the sacredness of Christmas, I turned...

Blogmas Shopping – day 4

Christmas Isn’t What You Think!!! Blogmas, Day 3
