A Mother Like No Other…

Motherhood is by far the toughest job I have ever encountered, but has been equally rewarding. I have so much respect for the mothers, grandmothers, teachers out there. Their patience is a quality that is admirable, I definitely do not have the natural gift of patience. My own mother on the other hand is the most patient women I have ever met, she is honestly a godsend with my children … Continue ReadingA Mother Like No Other…

Live for the moments…

Ever wonder what the future has in store for you? I’ve pondered this question so many times I have lost count! My worrisome traits alongside my planning tendencies have come in handy with my retirement planning (I know very dull topic) but it is something that everyone should think and prepare for, and it is far less stressful if it is established early on in life. I remember being scolded … Continue ReadingLive for the moments…

Dancing in September…

Love is something we all strive to achieve, it is a universal emotion that we all collectively share. But, love for me is best described by David R Hawkins “Love is misunderstood to be an emotion; actually, it is a state of awareness, a way of being in the world, a way of seeing oneself and others.” As cliche as it sounds, I married my high school sweetheart. He appeared … Continue ReadingDancing in September…

Family Trailblazer…

One word; unwavering, is the best way I can describe him. Gentle and kind, his soul is pure. Mastering his true calling by following his passion, rising up to the occasion and never surrendering. His work ethic and methods are undeniable, and he has been granted a remarkable gift with artistic abilities that have touched so many lives in wonderful ways. Looking back, I was the overprotective, overbearing, controlling sister. … Continue ReadingFamily Trailblazer…

The Original Jack of All Trades…

Samson, an undeniable strength according to the old testament. But, goes by Sam to everyone he meets and is by far the best Dad. Quirky, yet very innovative, he has shown me how to truly blaze through life with nothing but sheer determination. His life was not easy, growing up in a big family, in poverty and suffering several medical and traumatic events have caused difficulties in his journey but … Continue ReadingThe Original Jack of All Trades…

Money woes…

I remember thinking to myself money would solve so many of my issues growing up. It’s funny, being told recently by a psychic (I know, I know) that I am a worrier and will always be a worrier. It got me thinking of every negative experience I associated with money, from being raised in poverty. My father who suffered with polio and bi-polar was receiving a disability pension that was … Continue ReadingMoney woes…
