Cheers and Goodbyes to 2013!

“Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting, ‘WOW . . . What a ride!” As 2013 comes to a close, and what a ride is truly was, now it is time to reflect on the year.  It is a time to reflect on the blessings of the year that have brought us […]

Moving Fast

2013 is quickly coming to a close.  It has been a year of highs and lows for us all.  We have seen things we hope we never see again.  We have also seen things for the first time and we hope to see more of. We are all in a place that we will never be in again.  Once 2013 is gone, it will be gone forever.  It will be […]

Take A Step

How many times have you said that you want to do one thing or another?  It starts out with ‘I would like to do this or that’.  Then it turns into, ‘someday I am going to do this or that’. Just talking about it will never get you anywhere. Just talking about it will never get you there!  You have to take that first step.  After that all you have […]

Take It Up A Level

For years I was stuck in a rut doing the same things over and over and receiving the same results over and over again.  I finally got to the point where I said, “enough is enough”.  I still do things and I don’t get the results that I want, however I have changed enough to where I don’t do it over and over again.  Now, if what I am doing […]

Give Thanks

Thanksgiving is this week and for most people their thoughts or on the delicious foods that they are going to be eating or the family members and friends that they are going to be spending the day with.  For some their thoughts are more on line of ‘how in the world am I going to get all of this food cooked in time’ or ‘what time does the big game […]

Step Out of the Forest

When I am working on a piece of art, I am usually sitting really close to it, and I get drawn into the drawing as I am working on tedious and tiny details that are only inches away from my eyes.  I love the feeling of being so drawn into a piece of art that I only see the tiny line that I am working on at the time.  However, when […]

A Real Dreamer

Dreams are the stuff that reality is made from.  Everything important in our lives has started with a dream.  At an early age we all instinctively dream of something, however, when we are little we don’t call it dreaming.  We call it make-believe.  As we grow into adults, we lose our great natural ability to play make-believe and we just “talk” about our dreams.  If you just talk about a […]

Welcome Home

When Tim and I lived in Las Vegas before, there was this little pizza restaurant that we loved, it is called Sunset Pizzeria.  It was a little restaurant in the middle of a strip mall with only about four or five tables inside and they were packed pretty close together.  About every week or two we would order a pizza, go pick it up, and then take it home to […]

The Journey

The past three years have been an incredible journey for my husband Tim and me.  We have gone from living the life of our dreams to being homeless and having nothing.  Many times Tim and I have asked ourselves “what happened”?  “Where did we go wrong?”  We couldn’t figure it out.  Last night with some alone time by myself I sat quietly to try to figure it out.  I thought […]
