My Recipe for Thanksgiving with Jeanne Hussin

A cup of imperfection, a tablespoon of laugher, and a pinch of debate – my family recipe for Thanksgiving

By Jeanne Hussin | November 23, 2020

While I won’t be celebrating Thanksgiving as I did in the past, I sure have a lot of material to pull out of my memory banks. The memories feed my soul and make me feel joyful even when they were well shall I admit, less than perfect. When I grew up, my mom, a young…

Ordinary becomes extraordinary in one small moment

By Jeanne Hussin | November 15, 2020

As I finished my autobiography last weekend and sent it off to my publisher, I’m struck how my ordinary life delivered such extraordinary moments. I don’t know whether it’s because I look for these moments and cling to them more vigilantly, or because extraordinary moments really happen to me. Either way, there’s nothing more glorious…

Music and its powerful magic

By Jeanne Hussin | October 7, 2020

Showing Up

By Jeanne Hussin | September 5, 2020

In my twenties, my cousin Paul had a nickname for me; Monitor Lady. As you might expect, it’s not a flattering nickname. He called me Monitor Lady because I wanted to control everything and everyone around me. It wasn’t until my later years that I let go of trying to control EVERYTHING. When I realized…

Someone needs you as much as you need them

By Jeanne Hussin | September 1, 2020

Sometimes listening to that inner voice is just the medicine we need. For example, last night, I knew I should return an overdue phone call to a childhood neighbor friend. Yet, a voice inside me said, “No, you should call Steve.” Steve is one of those longtime friends who answers the phone with a smile…
