Going into this holiday brings me memories of past years. The year my Dad gave me a tool kit that others didn't think I would like considering I am female. He always seemed to know me better than anyone else. My parents used to make this wonderful fruit cake. It wasn't like the kind sold in stores with the candied fruit. More of a spice cake with raisins, walnuts, coconut and oranges along with certain spices. Think I want to make one this year. Bringing some memories back help...Read Full Post »

This last year has been so hard that I feel like I got lost somewhere. This made my business suffer due to me not being able to focus. Now is the time to change ways of thinking and doing.
I will give you a rundown of what has been going on.
My Dad passed last year on August 4th. He was my best friend and mentor. I have felt lost without him to talk to at least once a week about everything. He was a wealth of information on almost any topic and knew me better than I knew myself m...Read Full Post »

We would like to share some joyful news with everyone. One February 14th we welcomed a new soul to the family. This is my first great grandchild. Seems like not too long ago my grandchild was just a baby and now she is beginning a family of her own. Guess we were busy living life instead of just watching the time pass.
As always, sharing the love.

I knew a woman who always found an excuse to love.
I met her working at the most difficult job of my life - as a helper in an after-school daycare center. I was completely unprepared for the work; I had no training and my temperament seemed to be particularly unsuited to the position.
I reminded myself that I was hired to watch the children, play with them and lead arts and crafts - not fix all of their problems, of which there we...Read Full Post »

As we move from 2015 to 2016 I stop to think about all the things that have happened. My Dad made the transition from this life to the next. A few people I knew and love went the same way. There have been good things during the year. No major car problems and finances are a little better.
I used to worry about so many things and I have decided to let life be and live it the best I can. Guess the best choice is to go with this:
As the original prayer: God grant me the serenity to a...Read Full Post »

Carefully examining a display in the drugstore, a man asked the pharmacist, "Do you really guarantee this hair-restorer?"
The pharmacist responded, "Better than that, sir. We give a comb with every bottle." Wouldn't you love to have that kind of confidence?
One man quipped, "When it comes to believing in myself, I'm an agnostic." One of the greatest problems many people experience is lack of confidence. Some don't believe ...Read Full Post »

This was shared on Facebook by a friend of mine. Very relavant to me right now. This too shall pass.
It's never easy saying Goodbye....
you find the strength and motivation to let go of the pain
that hurts you....
you let yourself go, you cry, you become stronger....
When we lose someone we truly love in this world,
we lose part of our heart but then it takes time to let it grow back.
We ALL have pain, we just let go wh...Read Full Post »

We all reach a time when we realized what truly matters in our life. It is the people and relationships we have. It is never about stuff, money, fame or anything else. I knew what mattered and tried to keep connected with family yet it kept seeming that things I thought needed to be done were just motions of going thru life. Granted some things such as laundry, dishes and the like are important but making sure we tell the people in our life that we care and do what we can for them are more im...Read Full Post »

“ At the end of the day, you are solely responsible for your success and your failure. And the sooner you realize that, you accept that, and integrate that into your work ethic, you will start being successful. As long as you blame others for the reason you aren't where you want to be, you will always be a failure. ”
― Erin Cummings
Often we make excuses for not accomplishing something. I have been guilty of...Read Full Post »
