Just a quick reminder … The updates are fantastic and by all means you can still do them. But your conversations will have more staying power in a forum conversation. Once these updates move off of this […] View

    Such a beautiful horse! What is the breed … Do you ride in the events? Sounds amazing … but dangerous. I had a compression fracture on the 3rd, 4th and 5th lumbar vertebra riding in Colorado. I am not that experienced and definitely no jumping …. just on a trip with friends after high school graduation and my foot went through the stirrup…[Read more]

    Sigh. I know. Kids are trying to figure out how all of this is going to affect their lives, too. What Grady’s Parenting Through Divorce program reinforced for me is that they want us to get healthy and get back to life again. Like Grady said, he and his siblings wanted me to be focused on anything other than the divorce. They wanted me to be…[Read more]

    • Thank you for the information that you have given to me that Grady’s Parenting Divorce program had given to you and what Queen Elizabeth had said to just Get on with it. That is so true.

    Beautiful picture … of you and love the backdrop, too! Eager to correspond in the community. Sorry you are facing this situation, but so glad you’re here.

  • That’s amazing SARA-A-B! All of these little “coincidences” that happen along this road …. God Winks, for sure! What kind did you get?! I think it’s interesting to hear about what everyone picked out!” This becomes something a lot of our members do for themselves now whenever they are ready for a new bar of soap. So simple, but so important…[Read more]

    Well, hmmmm, here’s to letting it all hang out here in this safe place where no one knows who we are or where we live and we can say EXACTLY what we think – cuss words and all. It always felt good while I was screaming or cussing or sobbing as I rode my bike out in the open country where no one but me and God (and the birds and the bugs) could…[Read more]

    What a beautiful horse! And the setting is amazing, too! Where are you?

    • I live in New York. That is a picture from a Hunter Pace in Dutchess County New York. The horse is my boy Bubba. He is handsome, doesn’t talk and much more Intelligent than most men. I’m just joking.

    I love these new profile pictures. Unique and sort of Artsy. Makes you stop and think… that sky is such a beautiful color! Was that taken in the morning or evening?

    • It was taken in the evening, while I sat outside with my dog Maggie (German Shepard) just thanking God for the beauty of the sky.

    I love your new picture! Such a beautiful picture of you! What is the background? Where are you?

    • Thank you so much. The profile pic was taken at the Chinese Botanical Gardens in Norfolk, Virginia and the cover photo was taken in Virginia Beach.

  • Dear RADiCAL women! I am so inspired by all of these commitments! It helps when we see in black and white where we are and what we are committed to doing. I think it’s also good to print these statements out or just write yours on a piece of paper on a card and reading it every morning and every night. When you keep those commitments front and…[Read more]

    Hey! Love the picture. Would love to know the story behind it! Is that a pet or a wild thing?! The eyes are amazing! What made you pick that photo? Love the rainbow in the sky, too!

    Dear Beauty, Love your new picture! And I love your RADiCAL name, too! I get a mental boost when I think about being Frisky Ridgewood. Hope you’re inspired, too, when you think of the name Beauty! Keep in touch. All of us encouraging and sharing with each other makes us all get better faster!

    Love this pic! I’m a biker, too, even though not like I used to be. Our family started biking across Kansas in the summers 30 years ago or so, and the younger generations have kept that tradition going. It’s a week long trip usually the first week in June (Always during my Dad’s June 4th birthday – he’s the one who started all this). I also rode…[Read more]

    • Hi,
      I’m just starting to get to this and am grateful you’re here.
      We just ‘celebrated’ (it was a nice dinner out- it was so recent it’s hard to say celebrate without a little qualifier) our 32nd anniversary this last March, preceded by my turning 70. It’s been bumpy since the pandemic started, but until a conversation that ended up revealing t…[Read more]
