Happy Thanksgiving – Gratitude Now!“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”— Brian Tracy

Every year there are many things to be thankful for, but this year I am especially thankful for so many people and things.  I will try to list them out.

My book, Motivation Now!

Motivation Now! was released in September 2017 and I am grateful for all those that have bought a copy.  The book is available on Amazon (link here) in both kindle and paperback format.  I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the team that helped me put this all together: Dee – Graphics, Sandra/Liz – Editors, Sherry – PR, Ed/Robbie – Launch Experts, and the 60+ people that read, reviewed and helped me to promote the book!  Since the launch, three local papers featured me (two of those on the front page), and the Boston Globe even picked up the story (thanks Sherry!).  I have also been able to share my story with the Female Entrepreneurs Club and was interviewed by Radio Entrepreneurs (interview will be available shortly online at  If anyone is ever interested in writing their own book, I would be more than happy to share my experiences.  It was a long process, and I now know it takes a village to raise a child and write a book.

My family & friends,

My husband & I celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary in June, and this month we will join Cardinal O’Malley and other couples (celebrating their silver and golden anniversaries) at Liturgy for the Archdiocese of Boston.  John’s parents will celebrate their 53rd Anniversary.  Last year my parents attended the Archdiocese celebration for their Golden Anniversary with the Cardinal.

I am blessed with many close friends, especially those from my high school (Laura, Elizabeth, and Kathy) and college (Dawn, Roxanne, Julie, Susan and Nadine).  This year my high school class is celebrating their 30th reunion.  If you know anyone from the Arlington High Class of 1987, please have them get in contact with me!  We always have a fun time and it is a great opportunity to catch up with old friends.

My son & his caregivers,

November marks the 7-year anniversary since John Robert’s Open-Heart Surgery. He is medication free and his small heart monitor was removed in August.  We are ever thankful for those caregivers that continue to look after John Robert.  As his heart grows we expect he will need surgery again to address the leaflets that were created when he was just 3.5 years old.

My clients,

Finally, I want to say thank you to all my clients.  I am grateful for past, current and future clients.  My clients are important since without them I wouldn’t be able to share my skills and experiences.  This allows me to use my gifts to help others through life’s difficult challenges.


I always challenge those reading this blog to take a moment and create your own list of people and things for which you are thankful.  What are you going to do to express your gratitude?  How can you make sure you complete this important task not only now, but also throughout the year?

My thanks,
