CELEBRITY SPOTLIGHT

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Walter and Betty Roberts, a young couple in Atlanta, Georgia, gave drama lessons to the children of Coretta Scott and Martin Luther King Jr. in the 1960s. Even though the Robertses were white, they welcomed black children into their home during those racially charged times. In October 1967, upon hearing the news that Betty Roberts had to go to the hospital to deliver her third child, Mrs. King paid all of the family’s hospital bills as a gesture of thanks. That child: Julia Roberts.

MOVE FORWARD

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

You don't need a map or an itinerary for a personal journey, just a sense of adventure and maybe this reminder: That breathless, soul-quenching feeling of awe you get when you catch a water color sunset never comes during a commercial break. To grow, you have to get outside and go. Whether you want to walk farther, pedal harder or simply drink in the scenery more appreciatively, cross every bridge with a brave and open heart.

I feel so very fortunate to have married into this family. They truly have made me feel like I was born into the family!!

Brunch was some really yummy quiche & cinammon rolls & fruit salad-yum!!!
