Just like the clouds roll by

so does life

some clouds cause storms

that we want to pass

some clouds produce

a much needed watering

this is how life is

we need to go through the storms

to know how to live in the light

to know how to drink in the refresher rain

feel the feeling

in order

to move forward

Try to count your blessings
the things you feel are good
try to live each day
as you wish you could
try to take a step
toward fulfilling
your dreams
this will help
take away how
depression makes
things seem
It is okay to take babysteps toward a positive life! Depression makes us think we can't but we can!! I understand well.....

Quote of the Day

Just create to create. Create to remind yourself you're still alive. Make stuff to inspire others to make something too. Create to learn a bit more about yourself.- Frederick Terral -

Mama and Tootsie

All of my life my mother has told stories about "Tootsie" her bestest friend when she was a teenager in Howenwald, TN. They did everything together and had so much fun.

Recently, I helped my mother set up a Facebook account. Through social media, she was able to find her old friend. Tootsie (who now goes by Janie) was so happy to find Mama!

Janie visited recently and took my mother to lunch.

It sure is cool how they were able to reconnect after 70 years!

Underlying Sadness

I know to be healthy it is best to find the thing that makes you feel sad and try to deal with it. I can't figure out what it is. I also tend to feel sadness for/from others as my own but I do not think this is the case. I feel sad and do not know why.

Life goes on...prayer works and will reveal in time.

It is not a huge sadness, just underlying.

I'm still so thankful for all of my blessings. :)

Being Real

Sometimes, I feel totally inadequate. I have been feeling that pit feeling a lot lately. I don't know why. I know what I am meant to do. I guess the time it takes to get there gives me too much time to think.

I love to paint. I feel like an inadequate artist. I've never had any "real" lessons, all I can do it paint from the heart.

These feelings will pass. They always do. It is hard to be in the middle of it, but I want to be real with everyone. Sometimes, emotions get the best of me, sometimes, I try so hard to be "happy" that I forget to feel the moment. That's when I stop listening. I need to listen.

God Bless the USA

We are blessed to have freedom!
Thanks to everyone in the armed forces for keeping us safe!


walk slowly, pay attention to the signs...everything has meaning, lessons are everywhere.

It is easy to miss something if we forget to look!

For me, I take in color...whatever I am praying for, whoever I meet, I see a color. In my mind, they are clear to me. I have to remember to see it,sometimes, if I am rushing. When I think back to it, it is there.

God speaks to us all in different ways, we just have to pay attention.

Cool Quotes

Being your own story means you can always choose the tone. It also means that you can invent the language to say who you are and what you mean.- Toni Morrison -
