LIFE is a precious gift...



Hello and how are you today?? i want to share an experience that myself and family had today- let me take you back to last spring when we purchased our very first home. we were like most new home buyers wondering about everything including, I WONDER who our new neighbors will be- would we get along- would they like us?

Well that led me to say, we are going to LOVE our new neighbors!! So of course that is exactly what happened... landed right in the middle of 2 great neighbors!! one of them was an 86yr. old widow named miss Ermine the cutest little thing you ever saw and she was ALWAYS smiling-

We often joined her on her front lawn sharing stories and shooting the breeze. I always laughed with her and loved hearing all about her younger days- we knew she was special but today we found out just how special she really was.

You see out of nowhere last month miss Ermine ended up in the hospital with intestinal issues and had to have an emergency surgery and while there they found she was at the final stages of cancer that no one including herself was aware of.

The news was devastating and left my family and i very heavy hearted for the holidays... We had hopes that she would recover from surgery and we could at least spend some time with her. It didn't happen that way- she passed on Dec. 28th

So today was her memorial service- IT was a packed house- this woman had affected so many people in so many ways... It really really humbles and reminds me that as i sat and listened to story after story of people referring to her as their angel THAT that is whats important!!!

We have so many opportunities to lift and encourage the people in our lives- LOVE them for who they are- and cherish the time we have with them. I also loved how she would remember to do for herself too!! She really embraced herself and lived life to the fullest-

I will miss seeing your adorable smile :) with your super cute earrings- YOU have touched even your new neighbors in the most positive way...

FOREVER GRATEFUL-

I AM published on elephant journal!!!

Life is truly amazing!! It wasn't always like that for me- like most everyone I was just existing to keep my head above water. I had to literally hit rock bottom for me to decide to do it differently- I am honored beyond words that my personal journey has been published twice in the last 6 months!!  My intention for sharing my story is to inspire others that no matter how bad it can be WE always have the choice to change it- thanks for stopping by and I look forward to hearing what you think

Nobody likes a bully...

My dailey truths... let’s face it ~ we can all agree it is a total drag hanging around someone who brings you down and tears you apart, right? So let me ask you this, “Are you bullying yourself?” Are you telling yourself things that feel negative and scary? Chances are that you are!! Learn to recognize when that bully voice chimes in and stand up to it. Yep that’s right you can do that by letting the side of you that loves and supports you takeover the conversation.

we are souls having a human experience...

My dailey truths... I AM a soul having a "human" experience 💗  at times it feels like us "humans" can become very wrapped up in the thought that this is who we really are. My thoughts around this topic is that WE are so much bigger than the human version of us and when we connect with the higher side of us the SOUL side we connect to everyone on such a deeper level. Life becomes so much lighter and so much more enjoyable.
