Happy Friday!! Happy "NEW" You!! 12/30/2011 

By now you may have heard about the 18 year old young man who died on Christmas day.  Young Ben Breedlove had the same heart condition that my Grandmother carried her entire life.  A condition called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy.  He left behind a silent video speaking through flash cards about his near death experiences, seeing light, feeling love, joy...and peace.  There's a part in the video where the card says something to the nature of "I'm proud of how I lived my life"......and then…

Happy Friday 12/23/11 Tis the Season for ENLIGHTENMENT 

Tis’ the season for enlightenment……

Have you ever met or known somebody or a family and thought…WOW! They must have it all together...life must be peaches and banana pancakes for them.  Always smiling, happy to share an encouraging word, never an ounce of negativity seeping out of their mouth?  You have?

Me too, in the form of some of my regular guests down at the Bonefish Grill.  In fact, I saw them again just the other night, lighting up the restaurant with their brilliant spirit.  I had the privilege of…

Happy Friday - 5/20/2011 - "More than Coincidence?" 

Ever have one of those moments that simply sends chisels up your spine and makes every hair on your body stand up? Goosebumps clearly can't define what happened to me, or better yet, a few guests of mine last night. If you've ever wondered or questioned if we are a part of something so much greater than what we can see with our bare eyes in this beautiful universe......then I hope this story will be a magnificent testimony and reminder. Just last night, I met a MOTHER (in her 50's) and her…Read more

Happy Monday!! 2.28.2011 R.I.P. Grandpa Dale 

It is with mixed emotions that I write to you today to let you know the world lost an amazing man last night. You won't hear about it on the news ....nor will they put his picture on the screen at any of next years awards shows as they pay tribute to the great people we lost in 2011....and though it's deserved, a flag will not be lowered in his honor, to pay respects to him for serving our country.

 

And....you probably guessed, the President will not be interrupting your T.V. Program this evening…

Happy Friday!! 1.28.2011 "The Luckiest Man Alive..".... 

First off, I hope this message reaches you in blessed spirits filled with hope and inspiration.

 

Like most people, we have one of those lil' inspirational calendars laying around the house that is usually open to a date from a few months back....but, if read, can give ya a little pep talk.....a new vision for the day.  The Calendar we have is derived from the book, "Ask and it is given".

 

Yesterday, strolling by it, I decided that I need that lil' "booster shot in the soul".  So of course, I moved…

Happy Sunday!! 12.26.10 - Happy New You!! 

Well, a New Year is upon us.

 

It was only a short 11 years ago now that I was packing my pantry with water and food wondering if my lights were going to go out as the clock struck midnight.  Yes...it was 1999...soon to be 2000.  Seems like yesterday doesn't it?

 

11 Years ago.  4,015 Days Ago.  96,360 Hours Ago.  5,781,600 Minutes Ago.

 

A lot can happen in 11 years.....

 

In fact, starting in 2000, if you had.....

 

....a child in Kindergarden, they'd almost be graduating High School

 

....a mortgage…

Happy Friday - HISstory 

Well, I made it to Arizona safely and had a pleasant visit with my Grandpa yesterday. I hadn't seen him in about 2 years and wasn't prepared for what I saw. He lost over 30 lbs and gave several blank stares like he was searching for what to say At one point, he felt "ALL" his pockets like days of old in search of his cigarettes. When asked what he was doing, he said....."I just bought cigarettes yesterday down at the store and can't find them". He's in the special care area at a care facility and has…

She's here, it's official...Ava Faith Nicholson was born 7 lbs 8 oz & 20 1/4 inches long.  Oh, and blue eyes like her Mummy....looks like she'll be a smart one since she already knows her ABC's, we'll have to attribute that to her big sis' Madelyn Grace Nicholson who ran around for the last nine months singin' ABC's ;-) Madelyn is now a big 2 and 9 months.  Boy the time is a flyin', but life is good, all is well and happy.  I'm still writin' when I get time but puttin' Daddy and Husband first and…
