Each weeknight Delilah takes your requests, dedications, your messages of love, inspiration, hardships, and a “Delilah’s Dilemma” or two, on the Lite At Nite, here in New York City. This is a safe place to land at the end of the day, where the music does the talking for you. Whether you're seeking friendship, love, forgiveness or just a place to relax and unwind, Delilah is here to smooth off the rough edges of your day, and add a note of peace and serenity to your evenings.
Tonight, please visit 1067litefm.com, keyword: ‘Delilah’ for more information, great photos, and e-mail our show with your stories of hope and inspiration, by contacting Delilah's producer David directly at David@delilah.com. He’ll be sure to get your messages to Delilah to share via the airwaves, all night long!
Last November I stopped by the big Macy's Parade Balloon Inflation on the Upper West Side, by the Museum of Natural History!
I got to share an intimate evening with some very sweet Lite FM Listeners.
We shared stories, shared some good food and got to know eachother.
I joined Helen Little at Wollman Rink for "Skating In Central Park."
What a great day, and such wonderful Winter Scene in NewYork!
Keep warm everyone!
Here’s what you do if you’re a mom, reading this today: After you read this delicious recipe, you forward it on to your husband, son, daughter…anyone who is supposed to be spoiling you on Sunday, and give them a not-so-subtle hint that you would not be disappointed if they offered to make you dinner…
6 boneless and skinless chicken thighs (or 3 chicken breasts)
1 green pepper, diced
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 of a bay leaf
3/4 cup corn or peas
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 small can tomato sauce
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
spices, to taste (such as sage and thyme)
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup flour
1/4 cup olive oil
Place oil in a skillet and turn to medium high heat. Roll chicken in flour until coated. Place in skillet and brown chicken. Add garlic and onion and sauté for two minutes. Add the broth and all other ingredients. Let everything simmer until chicken is cooked through and tomato sauce and onion is cooked down.
I think I’ll take my own advice and send this off to a couple of my older kids and see what happens. If you have a great recipe to share, send it to me! May really kicks off the season of barbecue favorites and seasonal salads and picnic potlucks – what are you planning on cooking up soon? E-mail us those tonight by sending your message to Producer David's e-mail: David@delilah.com.

My own mother passed away many years ago, but I am still very blessed to have a couple wonderful ‘mother figures’ in my life, some very special mentors who care about me deeply and have continued to teach me the wonderful lessons only a mother could. That’s why I can appreciate this next letter from Robin for her ‘second mom’ and the words she writes to honor her…
I wanted to share with you about my second mom. This Mother’s Day is going to be a bitter sweet day for me. It will be one year ago, on Mother’s Day, that my mom passed away. She was not just any ordinary mother though. This lady raised me from the time I was two until I was 15. She started out just
watching me for my single mother while she worked late nights in a bar. Over time, I moved in with her.
She treated me no different than her own two older daughters. Not only did she treat me like her own, but she taught me about Jesus through her everyday life. She was the one that made sure all my physical as well as emotional needs were met. She was the one who stayed up late holding me when I would cry myself to sleep because my biological mother did not show up like she
promised. I am who I am today because of her and her example. I thank God every day that He gave me my second mom.
I could go on and on about my second mom and the influence she had on not only my life but everyone that knew her. You would not meet a more kind hearted, caring, unselfish and loving woman. She was truly one of a kind and I still miss her every day. What she taught me has helped me be able to minister
to others in my position as a pastor’s wife for the last 22 years. My life is truly an example of God taking the bad situations and turning them around for good. Robin
I will be honoring mothers all week on the Delilah Show so please send in your requests and dedications. The number to call is 1-800-222-1067. You can also post your request on my Facebook Page . You can post pictures of that special lady too! I’d love to recognize your sweet mom for all she does in your life!

Today, I have a story from a woman who I can guess is going to soak in this next Mother’s Day for all it’s worth. Melina’s story gave me goose bumps, and since
it’s so timely to the holiday I’m really glad she sent it in so I could share it with you. It feels good to hear that someone succeeded in something they wanted so badly, and her story is certainly a feel-good story…
In May, five years ago, my husband and I were told that we were borderline infertile and would only have children by in-vitro fertilization. So
we gave up, knowing that we could never get the cost of IVF together, and no guarantees. So we stopped trying, but never stopped hoping.
A month and a half later, we found out that not only had we conceived naturally, but that we were having twins. It was truly a miracle. God not only saw fit to make my dreams come true of being a mommy, but to give me two precious angels at once. In February the following year, our beautiful twins were born. Their names are Brandon and Katelyn.
Being a wife, a daughter, a friend, a sister has always been who I am. Nothing in this world has been more special to me than being their
"Mama." They complete my heart and every bit of my soul. Even on the most challenging of days all I have to do is scoop those little babies up
(which, aren't really babies anymore, they grow so fast) and snuggle them until all the bad feelings go away. And it works...every time. Melina.
When miracles happen, please write to me! It’s what the world needs more of right now, stories like Melina’s that inspire and give hope for miracles. We could all stand to read a few more ‘good news’ stories instead of the discouraging stories we see in the headlines. What’s yours? Send me something heartwarming today, a story I can share with the masses. E-mail Producer David tonight, at: David@delilah.com... and he will share those with me, or call me up after 8pm... 1-800-222-1067! I'll be here in the studio taking all of your phone calls. If you can't get through on the phone lines, e-mailing is the next best thing!

I read something so perfect the other day. My friend Dee Dee sent this to me: Relationships are harder now because conversations become texts, arguments become phone calls and feelings become status updates.
When was the last time you actually sat down with a friend and had a face-to-face conversation? You can’t have a friendship over text. You can’t possibly know the quirks and unique qualities of a person over text. You can’t know their tone, their facial expressions. Half of a conversation with someone comes from
non-verbal cues – the facial expressions, the hand gestures, the posture. Volumes can be spoken just by looking into someone’s eyes. So really, when you’re mostly texting and liking status updates, you’re really not communicating very well are you?
Don’t get me wrong, I love to text; I love to post on Facebook. I have hundreds of thousands of followers on Facebook and I love having such an easy way to connect with people and take more stories. But you know what I appreciate so much more? When a good friend lets herself into my house, finds her way to one
of the stools at my kitchen counter, settles in and begins to tell me a story. When I’m having one of those moments, it feels like everything is good in my world. Even if there is a lot of chaos and turbulence in my life, it’s nice to have a friend I can talk with for a while.
If your heart is telling you to make some time to visit a particular
friend or invite a certain someone over for a good old-fashioned face-to-face conversation, pick up the phone and make that call. If you can’t be near someone, use technology to your advantage and set up a Skype chat over your computer. Follow your instinct to reach out and strengthen a relationship this weekend. Just a thought!
With Love ... Delilah <3
