For some reason, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about grief. Some grief is acute, such as the devastating loss we feel during those first couple of years following the death of someone close to us, or after we’ve been abandoned by a spouse or lover.  But life is also full of grief over smaller losses,...

The Real America

The Real America….  What does that mean to you? For those of us who are Americans, and even for those who aren’t from the U.S., the phrase is filled with meaning. My father was a Texan, and my mother Canadian.  Both countries are in my heart, but I am an American. Here’s what “The Real...

A few years ago a nun living in Rome took my Grants Training Class. Her name is Sister Mary Elizabeth Lloyd, and one of her jobs is finding grants for the projects undertaken by her order, the Sisters of St. Filippini.

Christmas Trees Around the World

There is something mesmerizing about a Christmas tree. I love to just sit in the dark and enjoy the lights on our tree. It’s covered in memories, ornaments (many much the worse for wear) made over the years by my children and grandchildren, or chosen to remind us of special occasions or beloved pets....

Here in the U.S. it’s Thanksgiving, a national holiday dedicated to giving thanks. I don’t know about you, but lately I’ve been watching too much news, and worrying too much about the war, and the environment, and the Sudan. Don’t get me wrong.
