The Universe Speaks

I belong to this site that delivers a message from the Universe everyday. I am amazed that some of the ones I receive, hit me exactly where I am at that moment. Here is one I will share:

Just curious, Cassandra, but when was the last time you relied
upon me?You know, consciously realized you weren't alone as
you went about your daily affairs, choosing a path, finding a
parking space, or a new friend, or a great idea... and expected,
at least, a little something?


Well, let's just say we do it more often.

Jackie Saburido

I just read about this girls story and it really touched me. We all take so much for granted, but our lives can be changed in an instant. I get concerned for my grandchildren, all my grandchildren, that they will be a victim of a drunk driver. I guess any of us can fall victims to that horrific experience. I think it would be incomprehensible to have a loved one's life be taken by the irresponsibility of someone who gets in their car drunk and also it would be just as devastating, to have a loved one be responsible for taking a life when intoxicated.

This is a sad story of a young woman whose life changed in an instant and also the young man who was full of promise, whose poor choice changed his life forever as well. A difficult lesson for one and a perseverance to keep going in life when she didn't think she could.

Jackie is an amazing young woman, who in spite of the hardships and pain, has remained a beautiful soul with strength and courage. Her story is one that will make you think about what really matters and will have you asking yourself many questions.

My little Sedona

Here is a little update on Sedona Marie Bode. She is starting to say more words and loves Elmo. She is so much fun and I adore her. Her favorite food is pasta. Can you tell? Lars just covers his eyes...it's too much mess. BUT mommy cleans her up and then Papi takes her and makes her laugh. They are a good team in raising Sedona. Sedona can say, "Bless you" if you sneeze and one has to be careful what you say around her, as she will most likely repeat it. She loves to dance and play. She is such a delight and a blessing to all of us.
