Beautiful Sparkle

the ice on the trees is so beautiful

the sun shines on it and produces

more beautiful sparkles

nature has a way of teaching lessons

just by letting us observe

just look around and absorb

the beauty and take in

the lessons

Thanks Kadi

I was feeling like I needed a new start sort of. I don't feel like the same person as last week. I am not going to blindly trust people. I am not going to always assume people have my best interst at heart. They do not.

With that said, I am thinking I am so blessed to have so many friends. I have been in tears today from all of the sweet messages (and surprises) I have received. I am totally overwhelmed by it. I will always be there for everyone who has been there for me. Always.

The snow has been so pretty. It reminds me of God's grace and how his pure love covers us. He is constantly teaching me lessons. I don't always like them but I always come out a stronger person.

Always look for the lesson....sometimes, we have to look past the hurt but it is there.

Learning Lessons

Everything is a lesson

I will take it as such

life without lessons

wouldn't amount to


God teaches me daily and I am thankful for that. Grateful for people who love me and stand by me not matter what.

If I can share one thing with you this week.....ALWAYS listen to you intuition about people. It will not be wrong. It is the "God voice" in your head...

Just Thinking About Rainbows

Always a promise of hope! Thank you God!!!!

A Note From Me

Hi blog readers...

I am up too late posting.

I just had someone whom used to be a friend insult my integrity. I don't know if I have ever had that happen before. So, in thinking about it, I want everyone to know. I am real. I feel my path is to encourage others and help women, I have a few gifts that make this a bit easier for me, so I use them. IF I have ever given the impression that I think I am perfect, it is NOT true, if I ever made anyone think I don't get frustrated, hurt, angry, lonely and depressed, I am sorry. I have all of those feelings, I don't always make the right choices but I learn from my mistakes.

Just know, I write, I have a vision, I want to help...but I am just like you are and not perfect in any way.



written a few years ago....but I am reposting because it is how I feel.

I still try to figure things out
things that don't seem
to have a logical answer
things that makes some feel helpless
like a leaf being carried by a current
what can one grasp
what is real enough
to grab hold and hang on
I don't know

Really Cool Rainbow

It is like God read my last blog post!!! We had the most beautiful rainbow today!! I have never seen one so pretty and the colors so vivid.... a promise of hope.

The Reason I Take So Many Sky Pictures

The sky and the ocean
both calm me
I can take pictures of them
and feel peace
since there is no ocean in TN
I take a lot of sky pictures
but I can always hear the
ocean waves in my mind

A Little Love From a Child

Mornings can be hectic at our house. As I was rushing around getting everything together, Cara kept saying "Mommy, Mommy" in an excited voice....I turned around in a hurry and said "what Cara", she said "look, a heart". We had left a clothes hanger by the microwave while everyone was getting ready. Cara saw a heart in the "flection"...... She was so excited with a big smile on her face. It made my day! I'm glad I took the time to look instead of rushing her out the door.

Today From Me

Today I am ....

Praying for Haiti (my heart breaks for the people of Haiti)

Loving the Flylady- I have always loved the flylady, but never put my heart into trying to follow her routine. It is helping me organize my time and I LOVE it. I have been doing Flylady for 6 days in a row!! Ck her out

Learning and listening- lifelong process, learning to listen without doubting...

I am thanking God for his gifts to me and my family.

Excited to see my friend Leigh Ann's hospital unit on TLC tonight at 8 pm. She is a nurse in the burn unit. She is an angel. :)

How are you today?
