Home Sweet Home

~After an emotional departure from New Castle on Saturday morning, I set out for that dreaded 11 hour trip back to Massachusetts. We didn't hit the road until 9:30a.m. This is later than usual but Big Daddy didn't get into New Castle from Virginia until 11:30p.m. Friday night.

~It was a beautiful day for traveling. The sun was shining and the roads were clear. We were all ready to get back to Littleton...back to our organized, peaceful and lonely lives.

Here are some highlights of our trip:

  • We spotted 54 deer along the way.
  • 6 of which were road kill
  • We spotted 14 hawks
  • 2 of which were eating the roadkilled deer
  • I thought a saw a moose in New York, only to have Big Daddy laugh the whole way to Connecticut because it was one of those wooden cut-outs.
  • We both had our eyes peeled all the way along I-84 because we actually thought we would see the same black bear in the same exact spot that we had seen a month ago on our way into New Castle. We are so optimistic like that!
  • We thanked God about 12 times for the invention of DVD Players for the car. We made it through the whole state of Pennsylvania without hearing a peep from the girls!
  • Big Daddy insisted that he could smell toast for about 3 hours straight.
  • Neither of the girls threw-up this time. Life just keeps getting better!
  • At a rest stop in New York, Isabella declared at the stop of her lungs that woman's shoes in the stall next to us looked like "boy's shoes, and they were ugly." We stood in the stall until I was sure that the lady with the ugly boy-like shoes was completely off the premises.
  • We stopped to eat at Cracker Barrel once we got into Massachusetts. Yey! Cracker Barrel is my second favorite place to eat!
  • We quickly realized we were in fact back in New England when we were dodging snow bullets off the "cahs" in front of us on 495.

~After we trucked our luggage through 18 inches of snow to get into the house...I threw myself on the ground (this really is quite normal behavior for me) and thanked God one last time for our safe arrival home. He was pleasantly surprised I was not talking about the DVD player again.

    How to Make Your Dreams Come True

    Of course not all dreams are pleasant and making them come true can be worse than being trapped inside a cosole horror game.

    But some dreams are produced by our deeper minds and are our inner-most desires, often disguised in some strange way.

    However, there is another kind of dream and that is the kind we are consciously aware of and we have them during the daylight hourse and are often just fleeting thoughts.

    You know the kind. "I wish I was on a world cruise enjoying myself rather than being stuck here in the factory or behind a desk." Yes, that's also a dream because it has it is a desire that has sirfaced into our conscious minds and is something we wish for at an unconscious level.

    Of course, making those kind of dreams come true is more than not virtually impossible. For example, to wish to win the lottery may never become reality in this lifetime.

    However, some dreams can become reality as so many graduates of my Hypnotherapy Course have discovered.

    I decided three years ago to give thousands of 'dreamers' the opportunity to fullfill their dreams and ebcome a therapist. So many people want to help other people overcome their illnesses and mental blockages to life that their only stumbling block was the cost of training. I know of hypnotherapy courses costing as much as £7,000 (more than $11,000) and training in other forms of Alternative Medicine costing as much. To become a Doctor (M.D.) can cost as much as the purchase of a house.

    So, with my teeth firmly gritted together, and a determination I have no known for years, I set the goal to help at least a thousand people make their dreams come true by reducing the cost of Hypnotherapy Training so it was within the reach of almost anyone in the World.

    I passed that goal having had more than 1,400 students enrol and over 800 graduate.

    So in helping others make their dreams come true, I made my own dream come true and at the age of sixty-nine years of age, I am proud of that.

    Thank you for reading this,
