The past several years have been a time of transitions for me and I have been blessed with the opportunity to learn some very important life lessons. My dog Grace has been a true gift and she has taught me how to live in the moment and be grateful for what I have and where I am in my life. She has been a true companion and has inspired me to take this journey and write about the importance of surrendering to the present moment because it is the only way to truly LIVE. I have come to realize that it is the human experience that connects us to each other. What led to this journey and the journey itself is being documented and my intention is to publish this experience when I am done. It highlights my own spiritual process and my hope is that it will inspire others to accept and forgive their own human frailities in order to find a greater sense of peace and happiness.
