My "Leo Outlook" for 2010

Year 2010 Overview
Oh, big playful Leo -- how the last couple of years have been dramatic (and often less than kind) for you! There's little doubt that whatever you've gone through in the last year, the uppers have fueled your inherent charm and lovability, and the downers have gotten a little ignored. That's one of the problems with being a Leo: you can be so sunny that no one notices the rainy days. Mars in your sign this spring is going to give you newfound energy and motivation to really get things done your way, and the summer will bring new opportunities to express yourself.

The challenges will be slowly changing from big drama to smaller, more manageable issues. You've probably been too busy taking care of others to really take care of yourself lately, but 2010 marks a new direction in taking yourself seriously, and taking care of yourself with the due diligence and concern you usually reserve for others. Don't think of it as becoming inwardly-focused; think of it as doing the necessary maintenance on yourself so you can do a better job of letting your light shine for others.

Life is going to be taking a turn for the philosophical in the next year. All of the noise and confusion of the last year may have made you neglect your Higher Self; that too should be a part of your personal care regimen. This year is going to provide ample opportunities for you to get caught up on your spiritual homework. And, unlike regular homework, you'll probably feel like there's a point to doing it!

Gearing up for Resolutions

It is that time of year again. And being that it is a well rounded number, 2010, I am really going to work hard at what I choose for myself. Let's go ponder......

Christmas Samisms

Sam jumps on our bed at 6 am Christmas morning. He says, " I just looked at the presents that Santa brought but I know the POORLY wrapped one is from you"


Me: Sam, Meme says that you were a very good boy at Ned's on Christmas.
Sam : Well, that's a first, Huh?

Quote of the day

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes Piglet?"
"Nothing" said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
A. A. Milne

a friend posted this on our "board" and I love it!!!!

A Tragic Loss......

A friend of mine died last night. I still can't figure this out. I awoke as usual and went to check my email and facebook, to see what my friends were up to for the day and I saw that one of them posted that she couldn't stop crying and she needed her Zen girls (that is what our group of friends is called) I thought, oh no! something happened to one of her boys! So I logged on to Zen to find out that "Shimmy" (Traci) was in an accident and was killed. It hurts to even write that out. She was hit by a train, meeting her fiance.........this hurts.....

I have known Shimmy for many years now. We belonged to a meessage board foe wayward "scrapbookers" and we have a tight knit group of girlfriends. We have had our ups and downs with all of us and when one of the boards broke up, she emailed me daily cause she did not want to lose our friendship. We laughed, shared stories of our kids, shared our favorite book and movies and she turned me on to some different music that she thought I would like. We shared pictures of our dogs, shared recipes and just truly liked each other. She called me "OtherBeth" cause there is another girl on the board named Beth and I always loved that nickname <3. Then she left this board for awhile, life gets in the way and other things but then we found her again on facebook. She always had an encouraging word for everyone and i found her to be a very strong and beautiful woman. The kicker......I have never met her in real life. We are an online community of friends who have been thru alot together. Some of us have met, ohters not. But if you ask anyone of us they will say we may even be closer that IRL friends. I love all my girls on Zen and I know we will get thru this. It is going to be so hard but the love we have for one another will get us thru it. Oh, and I never told Shimmy this but one time she called me and I wasn't home, she left me a message and she had the most adorable voice ever! Traci, I will say a prayer for your son and I know you will be looking out for him and helping him thru his pain. You were the best mom and a great friend. I will miss you dearly.
