You know you're in a good spot in life when you wake up in the morning thinking, 
"Oh, the possibilities".  I'm in my mid-forties and it took me my whole life to get here 
but I now truly feel that ANYTHING is possible.  

What are you supposed to be doing?  What were you designed to do?  
Think about it and go about the business of doing it. 
Life is short - walk your path, leave your print.
Get it done.

Sweet Life

Enjoy the days of good and the moments that are sweet.
Relish all that surrounds you and the people that you meet

Be grateful for calm waters and a sun that shines so bright
For ears to hear, a simple touch and the awsome gift of sight.

Take note the grass-all shades of green and the sky so perfectly blue.
Appreciate everyone in your life and the fact that they're here for you.

Fortify your constitution for the times when storms will hit
Build it strong with Faith, good friends and throw in a little wit.

Life is just too precious to go from day to night
without living it with purpose and being present with all of your might.

I've been thinking of a friend and her family a lot these days.  They are dealing with cancer and they will face a tremendous amount of stress, hardship, pain and uncertainty in the following few months.  My heart goes out to them because I know how awful this season can be. 

If you live long enough, everyone eventually faces the tough stuff.  Thankfully, the prognosis is very good. However, the journey through the storm will be a difficult one.  The ultimate good news is that these people have a strong faith and they will be comforted and strengthened along the way by Him and by those who help them through it.  

 Be grateful for your good health and the health of those you love. Hold up the ones who you know are suffering right now as well as their loved ones.  They will need the strength that comes from your thoughts and prayers.

Welcome to my new blog!  This is my first post.  I am excited to have a forum and outlet to express my thoughts and musings.  I hope you enjoy what I have to contribute to the universe. :)  The purpose for my blog is to share my life others and for others to share with me as well.  The hope is to learn from and be inspired by each other.

Sometimes, I'll post a thought, or a picture, a quote or maybe a poem.  Basically this will be a place for me to express myself creatively, therapeutically and so on.  I hope you enjoy it!

 On a separate note, I've just published my first book, "River Through My Heart: A Memoir" which is now available on  - My book.  I wrote it in order to share with others what I've been though in my life and what I've learned from those experiences.  We all have a story and each of our lives are significant.

I've always wanted to write but had held myself back.  One day, I decided to just go for it and it's been a wonderful journey ever since.  Tapping into your purpose/s - what you are ultimately here for, lights you up and those around you as well.

Have you given much thought lately to what you're supposed to be accomplishing while you're here?  Some of you are already doing this and you know how fulfilling it can be.  I challenge those of you who have not yet tapped into your purpose/s, to start stepping into those long-held longings and nudges.  When you do, blessings will abound.

That's enough for now...until next time.
