When I was called upon to write a blog, the subject matter was the most difficult chore. I would have no trouble giving my views on politics or the state of the environment or maybe even sports. To do any of these might be a good ego boost. After all, don’t most of us think our opinions are right on? […]

You are perfect just the way you are!

Mixed Marriage

July 10, 2011

Having a marriage where there are mixed beliefs makes things a little harder.

Merry Chanukah!

December 18, 2009

This time of year is always a bit of a let down for me. I love Christmas season – I love all the festivities, the good nature, the mall craziness…I love it all. I can’t help but feel that it is an American season that I am left out of though. The trees, the stockings, good ‘ole St. Nick are […]
