The Likelihood of a Cat’s Death. . .

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / April 26, 2019 /

Cat Got Your Tongue?  When I was a young woman, I rarely spoke my mind. And when I did, my words were so far from how I really felt that one might accuse me of insincerity – even hypocrisy. I definitely let the cat have my tongue. How did I handle pent-up feelings? I talked…

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / February 15, 2019 /

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / September 29, 2016 /

Moments ago, it occurred to me that the older I get the more I change! I’ve just read a post on my Facebook news feed with which I wholeheartedly agree. Another friend agrees as well. As I read her response I pondered how different we were in our life perspective years ago. Less serious perhaps,…

"I Hate Sales!" ~ Women in Micro-business

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / March 23, 2016 /

Yep, it’s the truth. I hate sales. The thought of being a “salesperson” has always rattled my cage. I recall a conversation when I was social service director at our local hospital about sales and I haughtily mentioned how fortunate I felt not being in “sales”.

"From the Silence!" A Woman's Wisdom from the Season

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 24, 2015 /

I’m quite certain it was anything but a quiet night in Bethlehem. Obviously the small town was overloaded with pilgrims returning to their home city to comply with Caesar Augustus’ demand for a census.

"What Am I Worth?" ~ Women and Micro-Business

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / September 3, 2015 /

If someone asked you what you’re worth – your talent, skills, abilities – knowledge, expertise and all else you bring to the world – what would you say? How would you answer? Would you ask whether the questioner is a “believer” or not? Or would that matter to you at all?  Over the past weekend,…

In Whose Image? Another Women's Sunday Series!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / July 5, 2015 /

Do you image PAPA God in your own image? Or are you able to image Him as He is? Today’s Sunday Series post was prompted by a Facebook conversation in which I was involved this past week. The comment that got my creative spiritual juices flowing stated that we image PAPA from our human perspective. And…
