My heart and prayers go out to those lost and loved ones left behind in the recent Florida school massacre. How could eighteen events such as this have occurred in the US just in these initial weeks of 2018? This has got to stop. And it may be due to various things, like guns too easily purchased, mental illness and/or unchecked mental illness, lack of metal detectors at our schools (which is such a sad statement right there). Disturbing statistics can be found that report more suicides are among our teens than other age groups. Does this link up here?

OR, like with the #MeToo campaign, where women have been coming forth and speaking up about sexual harassment, we need to do that BEFOREHAND to locate these disturbed individuals so they don't kill even one person.

AND, with all the social media fans out there, why aren't there enough eyes on these posts that foreshadow such atrocities?

MAYBE it's more about enough mouths to go with those eyes. We need more whistle-blowers.

Speak up. Save a life.

God bless us and protect us all.

    Only eight more days until March 20, 2018, the official first day of spring. I'm a Deep South gal, so I love my Texas springs and summers.

    Have a good week, everyone.

    Another week has gone by, with our Texas low temperatures at around thirty-four degrees several times (not all that odd for the first part of April), along with tornado sirens one day. We escaped that event thankfully.

    Looking forward to nicer spring weather in the coming days.

    Have a great one!

    Happy Monday, April 16, 2018, to everyone. Hopefully y'all living in the States have already filed your US tax returns and can breathe a sigh of relief now that that's done. If so, enjoy the rest of your week.

    Another week has come around. Did you get all you wanted accomplished last week? What goals have you set for this one?

    Regardless, here's my tip for you: choose based on your highest good.

    In other words, don't settle. Yes, that comes with many clarifications, like, ensure you are making an informed decision. Do the best with what you've got right now. Of course, do no harm. To yourself or to others.

    So choose based on your highest good. Have that option available in your mind-set at all times.

    Have a great one!

    Here's a thought for you to consider this week:

    Happy Monday to all. This week, why don't you question yourself when you tell yourself no. Try saying yes instead.

    Good luck!

    Happy Monday to all. My day started off with some rains and thunder, so Texas has cooled down considerably.

    Have a great week, everyone.

    Another "Good Monday morning" to all. I just realized we are more than halfway through 2018. Hard to imagine. Have you reached your goals so far this year? Time to focus on finishing the main ones in these remaining months. Best wishes to you.

    Per a quick internet search, this is the twenty-eighth week of the year, with only twenty-three more to go. Wow. Another perspective for us.

    Hope everyone has a great week. Now it's back to work for me.

    Greetings from Texas, where we are experiencing three-digit heat here. And August is usually the hottest summer month yet for us. We'll see ...

    Hope all is well with everyone as we start a new week.

    TIP: If the status bar at the bottom of your Word doc disappears, hit the View tab in the top menu bar, then choose Arrange All. It's magic. I've got my status bar back.

    The triple-digit heat here in the DFW area has broken, thank God. In fact, rain wasn't in our ten-day forecast, yet it is cloudy here. Have the windows open and a soft breeze blowing through my house. Almost as nice as working outside when it's in the seventies.

    Hope everyone has a great week.

    I'm doing a belated midyear review, assessing my goals (am I hitting my targets, making progress? Are these goals still valid? Would another goal work better instead of #3? Or #8?). I think these critiques of my weekly/monthly/quarterly/yearly actions (or inactions as the case may be) helps me to self-correct as soon as I have identified an area off target and keeps me more in alignment with what makes me tick, with what makes me happy, with what makes me feel like a successful individual in the pursuit of my purpose here on Earth.

    Sending prayers up for those in the Bali earthquake.

    Good morning, all! We have finally had some measurable rainfall here in Texas. Everything is greener and smells so fresh.

    Here's to a great week for everyone.
