At the end of my life, I want to be one of those cute little old ladies.  You know the ones, with joyfully bright eyes and deep wisdom.  To have lived present with love, adding to the happiness of others.  To have contributed to the health & healing of our families, our world. To still find joy in an ordinary day and delight in life. 

 Even in a wobbly world and on wobbly days - especially then. To pave forward well.

How about you?  

Welcome,  take off your shoes, have a cup of tea. Let's chat

Denise has a very warm and vibrant personality that resonates well with my support group and is always well received with her captivating and informative talks.  I highly recommend Denise as a speaker and plan to invite her back again to present to my support group on another enlightening topic that is beneficial to our oncology patients.
