For me, accepting ‘what is’ at this moment in my Now, was (is) when my True Growth began. Coming from a place of Gratitude, I am Grateful for how far I have come in my journey, for the Gifts and Blessings in my life, for my Memories. With a Grateful Heart, I continue to grow from a place deep within, where my deeply cultivated roots can continue to flourish and blossom into something more.
Trust had to occur in order for Transformation to happen. While consciously disentangling myself from my pre-conceived ideas of what my life is (was) supposed to look like, I put my Trust and opened my Heart to my Creator, and continue to do so, Trusting Him and my journey.
For me, Acceptance has brought its own form of Contentment. With a Grateful Heart, I will continue to ‘turn over’ tend’ and ‘fertilize’ the Garden of My Soul, with Love in my Heart…………
a new haircut and color thrown in for good measure keeps my transformation fresh 😊 (I’m channeling my inner JOY, from the Pixar movie Inside Out 😆)

This morning my world is a little less brighter…my Beautiful Claudia was called home yesterday.
She always called me her little ray of sunshine, but truth be told, the little sassy package that was Claudia was the true light. She lit up the lives of everyone she came in contact with, and those of us who had the privilege to know her, love her and be loved by her, well she had a way of lighting up our worlds in so many ways. She, along with her husband Harvey, helped me through the darkest days of my life, and in those dark times, her light shone brightly and kept my flame from burning out. With my heart filled with Love and Gratitude, I thank God for bringing you into my life, C.
While selfishly I can’t image this earth without you, I’m smiling through the tears thinking of your reunion with your boys ❤️
Rest Well My Little Ray Of Sunshine 💛☀️💛☀️ I Love You
You own a huge piece of my heart ❤️
Last week I was treated to a special day with a special friend. Tess, my Chincoteague neighbor, who happens to live here in NC, treated me to a visit to the North Carolina Museum Of Art to view the Georgia ÓKeeffe exhibit. Our last visit was 11 months ago, so spending the day with her was good for my Soul.
My Soul-Sistar 💫
It was my first visit to an art museum…can’t wait to go back. I was drawn to Georgia’s work, and the quote hound in me was drawn to her words as well.
I was also drawn to the works of another artist on display .. and I’m soooo mad at myself as I deleted the photo with her info 🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️
What she did was travel around the US, and every 25 miles stopped and took a photo and then painted it. Brilliant if you ask me!!!
My journey is a sacred one. A wild one. It’s one of self-exploration. My path at times will be blocked by obstacles, which will give me time to pause and reflect….. there will be detours that will alter the course I am taking, those changes in direction will allow me to see and feel things that I might not have….. I know, undoubtedly, as MY journey unfolds, I will continue to embrace my complex soul .. all of Her, and I will continue to ride my Winds Of Change…….
I AM IN CHARGE OF MY ATTITUDE TODAY! HAPPINESS IS MY CHOICE!!!
There Is Sacred In The Ordinary
If we just open our eyes..
It’s all right there in front of us..
There is no disguise.
Beauty is all around us
In every shape and size
But so many of us are blind to it
Which leads to our demise.
We’re unhappy and
We’re never satisfied…
There Is Sacred In The Ordinary
If we just open our eyes…
We also need to awaken
Our Hearts, Our Souls, Our Minds
To receive the gifts of The Sacred
The Ordinary and The Divine.
