And thank you for a house full of people I love.  Amen. 
 ~Terri Guillemets


Today, as I look into the faces of  the loved ones gathered at my home for Christmas dinner, I silently thank God for their presence.  As I do, it suddenly dawns on me that on this day of “extreme” gift giving, I have been blessed in abundance, but not in the conventional sense. No, these loved ones, by their presence, have given me the greatest gift–one beyond measure.  

May your holidays be filled with the gift of the love of family and friends, peace, joy and abundant blessings, Lydia

Merry Christmas, Peace and Joy, to you and your loveds. May you have a happy New Year filled with blessings, good fortune and good friends.


From my family to yours, Lydia

Stop Sweating the Small Stuff Lydia

Okay, I admit it. I don’t know what the heck a “jump break” is and my chosen blog page layout is quite whack, but I am beginning to sense a lesson here–NONE OF THIS CRAP MATTERS! This blog is intended to complement my inner journey towards “letting go of the small stuff.” A place to pose questions that have no answers, but also to laugh and have fun. It’s the journey not the outcome that I am most interested in.

All that matters to me is getting these words posted on this less than perfect blog.  I have a great deal to learn about the matters of blogging and I am confident that I will do so as time goes by. For now, I know that I can hunt and peck this my first ever real post. I realize now that I am not required to be an expert blogger to do that–just little ole me, and that is more than enough.  The rest is small stuff.  Blessings, Peace and Namaste.
