Promises To Myself – 2011 Wrap-Up

It’s that time of year again.  Each year right after Thanksgiving I set aside some time for self-reflection and goal setting until the end December.  I look at the things I’ve accomplished and what I can finish up before the end of the year.  It’s a rewarding time to look back and see how far… Read More ›

A Bit on Understanding the Law of Attraction

Have you ever stopped to think that God never intended for us to be satisfied? Think about it, if we ever got to the point of complete satisfaction, would we be happy? What more would there be to strive for, learn from, work on if we were completely satisfied?  Would you really even know what that… Read More ›

The Holidays are Here

Thanksgiving is over.   This year the kids, my mom and I, went to spend Thanksgiving with my brother, his wife and her family.  They did an excellent job cooking and pulling everything together and we got to see her side of the family which is always fun.  They are just good people to be around.  We did… Read More ›


10 Things I’m Thankful For

The year of 2011 has been a year filled with great change.  In January I was given a promotion at work and moved to an Underwriting position at the company I work for.  In February we prepared to move into the first rent house the kids and I have ever shared on our own.  It was a… Read More ›

This Journey is Not Easy

Love is not just seeing a person as they are and accepting them,  Love is seeing the potential of what they can be.  How many times have we seen celebrities in the news? The reporters frantically reporting their success and splashing their faces and lives across front pages and television screens over and over. Their… Read More ›

Rest Now, Stand Later

According to legend and the wisdom of farmers, cows will lie down or refuse to go out to pasture, before a storm. When cows are lying down in a field it’ll remain fine, once they stand up, rain is on its way.  There are so many lessons in nature, but often we are just too busy… Read More ›


Watch Your Step

Sometimes we have to be brought to our knees to be reminded to slow down. Every now and then I get in too much of a hurry.  I run along my way, rushing here and there trying to get things done.  Then, out of the blue I will step off a curb wrong, or stomp my… Read More ›

Thankful At Work Potluck

It’s here again, the Thanksgiving spread at the office.  Strangely no one really wants to sign the little posted sheets stating what they will bring this year.  It’s a secret, they say.  I have a suspicion they are all in the “I don’t wanna cook, I have to do that next week,” state of mind.  Yeah,… Read More ›

The Quilting Bee

Every childhood has ups and downs.  Too many times we remember the downs and let the good times just fade away.  Take time to walk down your own memory lane now and then and remember the good things that helped to shape who you are.   I can remember being about 4 years old and being… Read More ›

I Miss You

Today was November 11, 2011.  The moon was bright and full this morning. The air was a crisp 35 degrees, there’s a frost on the ground, and I’m missing you so bad it hurts. I miss your smile, the sound of your voice and laughter, the way your eyes lit up when you thought of… Read More ›
