In LLH Talk Radio by Barbara Jacoby

One of the hardest thing that anyone might ever have to do is to hear that a family member or loved one or friend has cancer. It has happened to just about every single person that I know. I have been in the role of being the recipient of that news from my father and my brother among others and …

How Do You Tell Someone That You Have Cancer?

In LLH Talk Radio by Barbara Jacoby

One of the hardest things that anyone might ever have to do is to hear the words, “You have cancer”.  But, for me and I am sure for many others, that wasn’t nearly as difficult as having to tell loved ones about the cancer.  This week on Let Life Happen TALK, I would like to discuss this subject and would …

Let Life Happen TALK

In Creating Happiness, Recent Posts by Barbara Jacoby

In case you didn’t catch the messages last evening, Let Life Happen TALK launched its first internet broadcast at 8:00 p.m.  It was almost as much of a surprise to me as it is to you as Kirk did not tell me about it until late Friday afternoon after he had the whole thing all set.  However, I must say …

January 22nd has become a very special day to me.  Not only is it the 2nd anniversary of writing my weekly blog but also I walked out of the doctor’s office yesterday after my final follow up after my reconstructive surgery.  I feel so free.  But, the next thing that came into my mind is the thought that I could …

Happy Anniversary to Me

Next Friday, January 22nd, will mark the 2nd anniversary of my writing this weekly blog.  Now while to many this may not seem to be any big accomplishment, it truly is a major milestone for me.  The main reason for that is that I came to this task kicking and screaming, in my own way.  I really didn’t think that …

Happy Anniversary

In Creating Happiness by Barbara Jacoby

Today Kirk and I celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary.  It would have also been my parents’ 68th anniversary if they were still alive.  As I told Kirk at the time, I wanted to get married on that date because if our marriage was half as successful as theirs was, I would really be very happy.  Well, all I can say …

MySpace Friends

In Creating Happiness, Domestic Abuse News by Barbara Jacoby

I had an entirely different subject picked out for my musings today but having just completed a number of interactions with some of MySpace “friends”, I have decided to go in a different direction.  I have made a connection with so many wonderful, strong, caring and sharing new people there that I just have to share.  The last place that …
