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-

Happiness is a choice...

My dailey truths... happiness is your birth right. You DO NOT need to work hard for it or be good enough to earn it, you have a choice to just simply choose it. I can already hear some of you say,” oh ok Danielle it’s that simple?” And I will answer you YES it really is. When you are finding your mind going to a dark scary place ask yourself does thinking about this make me feel happy? Let’s be honest the answer will be obvious- NO!! Ok great when you catch it simply turn your attention on something that brings you a smile and feels good to your heart ♥️

"practicing unconditional love"

My dailey truths... unconditional love is best described as a love for your child or your pet, what if you could experience that same love for yourself? No conditions "love no matter what" it is possible and I know first hand how it can change your entire life. The relationship within yourself is the one relationship that you are guaranteed to have for the rest of your existence on this planet. WHY NOT make it the most loving of your life??

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
