The Love Series part 2: Keeping it simple on Valentine’s Day

On special occasions my husband, Lonnie, and I usually don’t exchange big gifts. What we really enjoy is giving and receiving greeting cards from one another. Whether the occasion is a birthday, an anniversary or Valentine’s Day, we take pleasure in searching for just the right card that conveys our genuine sentiments.  Our simple, yet impactful tradition began many years ago. I remember receiving a special card from him.  Moved by the message, I turned to him and asked, “Do you really feel this way about me?”  He assured me that he did and then he explained that it took him a long time to pick out the card, because he had to find one that said exactly what he was feeling (I love that man, y’all!).  

Change your life in just 15 minutes

Change your life in just 15 minutesIf you are at all like me, you have probably said to yourself, “There is just not enough time in the day for me to accomplish all the things that I have to/need to accomplish.  All of the demands of life compete for my attention, my energy, and my money, so one of my goals in 2010 is to discover practical ways to continually simplify my life and redeem my time. Inspired by a website I introduced to you last week,, I have started using bite-sized chunks of time throughout the day to accomplish small, yet important goals.

Introducing Sheila Ford and her new book-love letters to him

Introducing Sheila Ford and her new book-love letters to himWhen I heard about the new book that Sheila Ford had written, Love Letters to Him, I knew that I had to share it with our readers.

Can positive affirmations change anything?

Question:  "Can positive affirmations change anything?"
Answer:  From the Buddhist perspective all we can work on is our own mind.  So, a positive attitude will definitely help us deal with the world in more effective and compassionate ways.  2,500 years ago the Buddha said, "The thought manifests as the word; the word manifests as the deed.  The deed develops into habit; and habit hardens into character.  So watch the thought and its ways with care, let it spring from love.  Born out of concern for all beings....The shadow follows the body and never leaves it.  In the same way, as we think, so we become."

Set goals to win in 2010

Set goals to win in 2010Recently while going through an old stack of papers, I came across a piece of paper whose heading read Humphrey Family Goals 2006.  As I looked over the list, a feeling of pride rose up inside of me.  Basically all of the goals had been met. The next feeling was one of disappointment for two reasons:  First, I don’t think we wrote down our family goals for 2009.  Secondly, I know there is at least one important goal leftover from 2008 (probably earlier than that) that remains unachieved.

(Style on a Dime) Looking holiday slim with glitz and glamIf you were to look in the furthest corner of my closet, you would discover where I store my festive attire; my gold metallic jacket, my sequined tank top, my gold shimmery blouse and a couple of other items.  While I really like these pieces, I only wear them during November, December, and January because they are my official holi-wear (holiday celebration wear-all of which can be worn with my favorite pair of black pants).
