Happy FriYAY friends,


Shortly after our daughter Kaitlin died in 2014, a friend of hers and our son Troy started driving across town every Friday morning to have breakfast with me before she went to work.  These 6:30 a.m. breakfasts started out as a way for Ana to support me and gauge my emotional and mental health – lots of tears were shed.  6 years later, she now lives next door with her husband Jonathan and we continue to joyfully celebrate the end of each week with a FriYAY breakfast.


Many folks are experiencing loss of one kind or the other.  I share my slice of life to illustrate how in the midst of heartbreaking loss, a simple act of love and compassion can make a life changing difference.  I gained a dear friend and heart healing benefits from this amazing love in action.  People like Ana make me want to be a  better person.  In the past couple of months I’ve been witness to many acts of love and people stepping up to be lights of hope, positive energy and kindness during a time of much uncertainty.   I’m grateful for all who are being a light during this time.  Thank you for sharing your talents, time, money, and love with those who need it most.  You ROCK!


Again, I hope these pictures, shared by members of Chapel in the Pines, bring smiles to your hearts and faces. Please send any pictures you take as you shelter at home.  You can email them to me at


Please continue to keep sharing the love. May you be safe, may you feel loved, may you feel peace, may you continue to find ways to share your light…namaste.


Monster hugs,
Nana (office manager)
