Several years ago, I read a book, “One Thousand Gifts,” written by Ann Voskamp. What the author was essentially saying was to acknowledge and give thanks for whatever was going on in your life. Big or small. It blew me away, the simplicity of the meaning and why we should all be doing it. I […]

Is it just my marriage, or is it most marriages – that the wife arrives at a conclusion FAR faster than the husband? I have no idea why my husband gets to where I am, at LEAST a year later. Most times, it’s YEARS later. Am I right? Why is that? It’s not like I’m […]

Purely an opinion, my opinion, on what makes us happy. Us meaning GreyFeathers… Us who are around 40-60 years old. Obviously, I don’t live with any of you. I don’t know where your daily ‘happy meter’ is set. I’m sure it changes from day to day or week to week, dare I say year to […]

“The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again, but you will never be the same. Nor should you […]

I have one, do you? An ex-spouse. Married him when I was 23, like not even 23 an entire month yet. I was madly in love with him. He made me laugh, a lot. We did have some issues before we married. I was never under the impression that I could change him, or that […]

I AM very proud of my husband for being as successful as he is. Being focused, financially driven, goal oriented, super hard working, giving personal attention to his clients – going above what was expected of him, is what has gotten him to where he is today. If you have a successful spouse, you also […]

He’s known in Florence as “Gregorio” (Craig), but to me he is my best friend. Italy is his girlfriend. I am his wife (love). The wonderful thing about him is that he allows me to be me. Me in my post-menopausal, anxiety-ridden brain, cry at anything, trust no one, failure, realist, mushy heart baby that […]
