• I Love You 99

    Please Share!I Love You “99” By Marci A. Schmitt (March 4, 2016) In 1980, there was a lamenting love song on the radio sung by the group Toto titled “99.”  I loved that song.  It was one of my favorite songs of that era.  (I know – I am telling my age again. It’s what I do best!)  (List of 1980 Singles) The rumor supposedly stated, “99” equaled the combined body measurements of the lyricist’s girlfriend (i.e. bust, waist, hips or 39-24-36.)  I wish I could say my measurements equal 99.  But, unfortunately, 99 would only represent a portion of

  • SUMMER REFLECTIONS

    Please Share!Summer Reflections By Marci A. Schmitt Have you ever sat on your porch and absorbed your surroundings? I have. Recently, I took the time to sit on the front porch one late afternoon. It was Friday. One could feel the growing anticipation for the weekend to begin. Sitting on the porch swing, I drank everything that nature’s menu offered. That day, each image before my eyes was clearer, sharper so to speak than at other times. It had been the hottest day of the year so far. Summer was just a couple weeks away. The day’s heat had reached

    Please Share!A SONG FOR YOU “I love you in a place where there’s no space or time; I love you for in my life you are a friend of mine” The other night I watched a movie on YouTube of all places.

  • PAY IT FORWARD – PLEASE DONATE

    Please Share!PAY IT FORWARD – Please Donate! No one wants to be a breast cancer statistic!  However, in January of 2009, I became one. When my mother fought breast cancer ten years prior to my diagnosis, I found in hindsight that I really didn’t understand the full journey she actually traveled – until I experienced breast cancer myself. To hear the words – “YOU HAVE BREAST CANCER!” – is simply mindboggling and shocking in of itself. It’s the beginning of an overwhelming and exhausting journey filled with mental and physical challenges that many of us have never experience in our lifetime.
