Is she your best friend?

Crossing out Lies and writing Truth on a blackboard.

There is a new question for the man cave. This one is for men in committed relationships. Men are you ready to enlighten us with your opinions and wisdom? It is said that you should marry your best friend. Women place a lot of importance on friendships. We designate who our best friends are. Do you think of the woman in your life as your best friend? Or do you separate your guy best friends and your girlfriend/ wife in different categories of best friends? Or, do you even think about … [Read more...]

Vacation Mode

The Dive group at Deep Blue in Cozumel

Many of you know I recently went on a much anticipated and greatly appreciated vacation. I feel so blessed to have been able to get away for 6 days. Vacation mode for me is super relaxed. I allowed myself to put away all the things I’m working on at home and just be. I slept, ate, went scuba diving, took in the beautiful scenery, ate and slept some more. Did I mention that I slept? I might have slept a lot. It was wonderful! I especially loved being under water again and seeing that … [Read more...]

This Man

Tattoo Ronald Wilsher Kathryn Wheat

When we first met, I didn't see this coming at all. How did we end up here? We started on this journey carrying a ton of baggage, broken, disillusioned, hardened, and with enormous walls guarding our hearts. Neither of us thought love was on our horizon or even remotely possible.  But here I sit writing about "this man" 3 years later.   Many have asked how we met so I will share the story:   Our initial meeting was at a networking event. We were introduced by a mutual … [Read more...]

Please Wait, Self-Adjustment in Operation!

Please wait

I recently attempted to make some copies on one of those large copy machines and it didn’t seem to be responding. As my patience was waning, I looked down and noticed the message it was showing me: Please wait, self-adjustment in operation. That simple, machine generated message struck me as very profound. There are times when we humans could use one of these messages displayed on our own foreheads.   There have been times in my life that I have become aware of the need to make … [Read more...]

I might not be rocking the boat but that doesn’t mean I’m ready to set sail!

We never lose friends.

  Don’t ever confuse politeness with agreement. Have you ever been pressured by a friend or an acquaintance to jump onboard with something that they are passionate about? I seem to get this a lot. While I am happy for others who have found something they absolutely love, I can’t possibly sail away on every ship in the sea! After all, I have my own ship to navigate! I would love to shore up everyone with encouragement but I’ve learned that seems to send conflicting … [Read more...]

I love you!

I-love-you

I was recently reminded how quickly life can change directions. In a split second everything that seems to matter so much becomes unimportant. The shopping list, the holiday project, having that cute handbag, decorating, school, disappointments, an argument, traffic, the gym, that mean person that you wish you could avoid…… all of these things that are in your head don’t mean anything at all when your life or the life of a loved one is in jeopardy.   Last weekend, as I was … [Read more...]

I don’t need any Neck Cream!

wrinkled neck

The other day I went into one of my favorite places to shop for cosmetics and got stalked by a lady hawking neck cream. No kidding! At least I hope you are laughing about this with me! As I walked into the store, she was standing next to a display with this new miracle product that promises to get your neck wrinkles under control. She greeted me and then declared that this miracle cream was on sale for $20 off! She seemed very excited about this fabulous sale. I kind of remember thinking if … [Read more...]

How do you meet women?

singles

  Ok guys, this question actually comes from me, Kathryn. I had a recent conversation with a gentleman that was asking when our next party would be. He had a friend that was newly divorced and was hoping that there might be some lovely single ladies at our next party. It seems like I know so many men and women that are looking for either that special someone or just simple companionship. This brings up the question, in what ways do you pursue meeting women? Is it through on-line … [Read more...]
