Perfect inspiration for me...

Dear Valuable Girl,

You have the right to choose the kind of friends who get to be close in your life. It is an honor to be in your inner circle. You have the right to be treated with kindness, respect, love and support. You have the right to feel safe in your relationships, free from harsh judgment and free from manipulative communication.

Please do not allow yourself, amazing girl, to be abused by anyone that you have the choice and power to free yourself from. No one has the right to point out your weaknesses, to abuse your weaknesses, to make you feel small or to continuously bring up a past that you are growing out of. No one has the right to manipulate you, to cruelly make fun of you or to cross your personal boundaries. No one.

You are worth what it takes to set boundaries with others. You are worth protecting. Just like you would never allow someone you love to be treated disrespectfully or with cruelty...please do not allow yourself to be treated in ways that minimize and devastate the incredible human being that you are.

Spend time with others who remind you of your potential, who help you to live your dreams and your values, who silently help you with your weaknesses and who lift you when you are down. None of us need any help aside from the help of our creator, knowing where we are weak. None of us need our mistakes and frailties constantly pointed out to us by someone who has no business pointing them out...we are well aware of them and work daily to overcome them. Choose to be with those who show you where you are strong.

Friendship should not hurt.
Protect your beautiful soul, dear is so precious and important.
Never let anyone blow out your beautiful light. You are LOVED.

Be driven

"Get going. Move forward. Aim High. Plan a takeoff. Don't just sit on the runway and hope someone will come along and push the airplane. It simply won't happen. Change your attitude and gain some altitude. Believe me, you'll love it up here."

- Donald J. Trump -

Dirty Dancing

First dance... first love... the time of your life!
DIRTY DANCING is the unprecedented classic love story about Baby and Johnny, two fiercely independent young spirits from different worlds, who come together in what will be the most challenging and triumphant summer of their lives.
The on-stage experience fuses heart-pounding music, passionate romance and sensationally sexy dancing to the hit songs of “Hungry Eyes”, “Hey Baby”, “Do You Love Me?” and the heart stopping “Time Of My Life.”
Dirty Dancing on stage is a re-imagining of the film, adapted for the stage by the same woman who brought it to the big screen in 1987, Eleanor Bergstein.

Last night we attended the show at the Teatro at Monte Casino with Aunts & Uncles - Brenda, Lawrence, Gertie and Brian.  This was really an excellent show and we had a lovely evening.

Sister's Dinner - November


We had our Sister's Dinner at Casa Rossi, an Italian Restaurant that has been revived to it's old self by its owners.  The food was absolutely delicious and I'm sure we will all be going back with our families to enjoy!
