My dear grandparents are on mind, even more today because it would have been their 69th anniversary.  So, I want to wish my beloved Gram and Pap Happy Anniversary.  I just know you’re celebrating in Heaven!

Our Deepest Fear

A friend posted the following quote on her Facebook page and I liked it so well that I decided to use it for this week’s blog.  It’s powerful beyond the words themselves.

Happy Mother’s Day!

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to SHINE, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

Unapolgetic Self Portraits

I wanted to this article with you all.  It again shows what a little (or a lot) of persistance can get you.  I’m truly amazed at these paintings and the artist behind them.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

A Powerful Reminder

I came upon this quote by Thomas Edison and thought it worthy for today’s blog.  These are words to remember when things do not go exactly our way.  

“The greatest weakness lies in giving up.  The most certain way to succeed is always to try one more time.”

~Thomas A. Edison

Again, thank you so much for following my blog.  I greatly appreciate it!

Birthday Blessings

I wanted to thank everyone who made my day so special last weekend.  As you may not know, I spent the weekend in upstate New York to celebrate my birthday.  I not only had a special day; my whole long weekend was perfect!  In fact, I think I’m still recovering from my experience.  However, someone gave me a card with a psalm, reminding me that I’m forever protected by His everlasting love.  When life gives me trials, I always think of this and it bolsters me to face challenges with resolve, yet I have the knowledge that I rest under His wing.  That’s the best gift, I think—to remember that.

Hide me
under the shadow
of thy wings.
            Psalm 17:8

Have a good weekend, everyone!

Maya Angelou

Below is one of my ultimate favorite quotes from Maya Angelou.  It’s a “call to action” trumpet of words that I’m so fond of posting.  So, here it is.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

“What is a fear of living? It's being preeminently afraid of dying. It is not doing what you came here to do, out of timidity and spinelessness. The antidote is to take full responsibility for yourself - for the time you take up and the space you occupy. If you don't know what you're here to do, then just do some good.”

Ocean Thoughts

Although it is snowing today, my thoughts seem to be drifting towards the warm, sunny sky and the crashing waves on the beach’s shore.  Wishful thinking, right?  However, as I thought of this, a familiar JFK quote popped into my brain and I knew it would make good blogging material.  And so, here it is…Wisdom from President Kennedy, so many years ago.

Enjoy the snow!

“We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came.”

John F. Kennedy
