Three years ago I discovered I had breast cancer. While this does not define me, I mention it here because it has certainly transformed me. It was my wake up call. My second chance.
I call it my blessing in disguise because it was the nudge I actually needed to take stock of my life. To try to make each day a commitment to meaningful contribution. To be concerned with needs more pressing than myself. To translate ideals into everyday deeds. To put aside the puny vanities of life. Or at least try to!
This blog attempts to tackle big issues, world issues, life issues – all from the perspective of a housewife.
Mostly, this blog is my tribute to hope. All things beautiful. Values. Service for humanity. Laughter. The goodness in all of us. And thoughts hopefully worthy to touch one heart.
And finally, to a new race of men and women around the world who constantly raise the standard for what it means to be human.
Your new theme is ‘beautiful’!!! It also showcases your superb photography!
Today, I made some minor changes to my blog too… to my surprise, we picked the same color scheme! 😀
Your new theme looks great. Congratulations!
Sharon, your new theme is absolutely gorgeous. The words above come as a shock to me. I had no idea. What a great spirit you have and you are such an inspiration.
Love that thought, especially the last line. We all need to raise the standard of what it means to be human. Thanks Sharon.

a present for you:
Hi Sharon, your blog is such a place of hope. I am adopting your daily reminders. Thank you for your work.
When I am in my very best place, this, too, is why I started a blog. Working on the computer daily and in a field where this is so much sorrow, can sometimes take me away from the reasons why I started my blog. You have just reminded me – thanks for the inspiration and reminder. ~ Jeanne
I love the idea of raising the bar on being human-so much room for change and possibilities!
