Welcome to my home =] I believe in a total hands on, learn as you go type of existance bcause you can't cultivate knowledge about new things without getting your hands dirty. So if you're willing to watch me stumble through the process then check back often. This site will always be a work in progress... sorta like me!

There’s always a back-story

Please enjoy this blessing—> Virtual Therapy for the Soul

There are those who would tell us
We will never fight enough wars to bring peace.
We will never feed enough hungry to end starvation.
We will never build enough living spaces to house the homeless.
We will never be outraged enough to end all atrocities.
We will never build enough jails to end crime.
And we will never make the earth green
enough to end global warming.

Maybe it’s time to choose another way……… WARNING!
By accepting the Blessing Way Challenge, you may never see things the same way again. Your life will become lighter, brighter, more peaceful and more loving. Those who fully commit to the challenge have reported that problems dissolve or resolve themselves and every seeming difficulty becomes the catalyst for a new and greater blessing.
Reflection on the 30 day challenge: “Looking for the GOOD in old age” One of the blessings of getting older is actually making it to one’s own future. In my case it all worked out and I’ve learned that worrying does nothing but make you sick. The term “Worrying yourself sick” makes perfect sense to me now. Worry ruins the present, which is all we truly have. Our past is there to learn from and if we don’t stop what doesn’t work we have truly wasted that time of our lives as well. No matter what we’ve done, good or bad, positive or negative, if we refuse to apply that precious knowledge those days (the past) are lost… not honored, not used, not valued- then we begin to not only NOT live in the present but regret the past and end up fearing the future.

“When I look back on all the worries I remember the story of the old man
Who said on his deathbed that he had a lot of trouble in his life,
Most of which never happened.” Sir Winston Churchill

August 2008… There was hardly a day this month that didn’t have some kind of note penciled in on my calendar. From birthday’s (congratz Debi and Kathleen) Olympics, doctor appointments, work, watching pets while family went to Mammoth, San Diego, Lake Arrowhead, The Yucatan Peninsula, etc. etc…. did a lot of grandkid babysitting… one of my favorite things to do =] Work, finally painted the office and worked in the yard… thanks Katy for all your help, the twins turned a month old on the 10th praise God, work, work, work, praise God =] more teeth for Stella and she hit the 15 pound mark just days before turning 10 months. Pop Pop and I attended an incredible “live” experience called “Walking with the Dinosaurs” with TC & Riley… FANTASTIC!!! and the month’s not even over yet… Labor Day weekend is coming up with final summer BBQ’s and the second anniversary of Tom’s passing on the 30th. Two years… hard to believe. Eight months since dad joined him… honestly, I still can’t believe my dad’s gone. I’ve been working hard to find the “good” in every thing. The only blessing I can see is they are both at peace and no longer suffering. Some times that’s enough… some times it’s not.

Exploring the links will tell you alot about what makes me purrrrr... I won't be putting up a BIO, you wouldn't believe me anyway. I will confess that words are a passion for me, thus the lyrics link, so I will be adding quotes or bits and pieces of songs that make my heart sing and you are welcome to take and use anything that moves you. I've probably swiped them from somewhere anyway... so enjoy.

Embrace this moment... Remember we are eternal... All this pain is an illusion.
