Throwback Post: Painting Rocks While Going for Walks


September 16 2014:

Lillian’s 13th birthday party was a rock painting party! Thomas made this cool car for his friend Max who loves cars. We collected bunches of cool rocks at Boca Reservoir a few weeks ago. Can’t wait til I get to paint some! Fun stuff!

Damonte Ranch Spring 2014 .. wetland bird preserve … one of my favorite places to walk!

Sunset walk with Thomas last night … He left a “Happy Fall” message for some lucky person to discover! xoxo

Facilitated deep calm and relaxation for 2 Reiki clients today … I so much enjoy doing this! I swear the one hour sessions only feel like 10 minutes! xoxo


September 16 2010:

Just finished giving my presentation to Lillian’s 4th grade class about Lillian and her differences! They asked such good questions and even gave up a few minutes of their recess time to keep askin questions. One student thanked me after wards and told me how interesting it was to learn more about Lillian ~ MADE IT ALL WORTH IT ~ if I inspire at least one child!

September 17 2009:

Something is telling me I must share what is happening in my little corner of the world. Partly because I am so overwhelmed with all the greatness and good things that I must share it with others or I will explode! Partly to inspire & encourage others to Never Give Up massaging, working at and connecting the dots of your purpose AND sharing it with the world.

Since the eWomenNetwork Conference in Dallas in August (and it began on the last day of the conference), dots have been connected that needed to be connected and I have come into and accepted my Purpose, Message and what I have to share with the world.

Back in November 2007, something was tellin me that I needed to learn about this stuff called blogging. I dove right in and haven’t looked back. From blogging to Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter and all things Social Media. At the same time I knew that Lillian had something to do with all of this. Just didn’t know what.

I have finally figured it out and accepted it!! I am a voice for those that don’t have one. I will empower the speech impaired to the very best of my ability. I will be a thought leader and pioneer of how the speech impaired can use Social Media to have a real time voice for connecting with others, being a part of the conversation, working or being an entrepreneur in a way they have never been able to in the past. I will inspire parents and/or caregivers of speech impaired children to utilize Social Media. I will inspire speech impaired adults to utilize Social Media. I have just recently accepted this. I have stopped holding myself back because “no one cares about this message” or “how will this pay the rent & buy food” (things I told myself). And, oh my goodness, the things that happen when you accept and focus and make all of your decisions according to whether or not they further your purpose!

There’s a Blog World & New Media Expo in Las Vegas in October at which many well known Social Media “stars” will be speaking and mingling. I knew I needed to be at this event and just did not have the money to pay for it. I kept it in my daily folders to keep it on my mind. The cutoff for the reduced price was September 14th. On about the 11th, I entered a contest to win a pass to the Expo (by leaving a comment as to why I wanted to attend). On the evening of September 13th I received an email message that I had WON the pass to attend the Expo.

Next, at the eWomenNetwork event last tonight our speaker’s topic was “Power-Up Your Purpose!” She was fantastic and I felt as though she were talking directly to me. I WON an autographed copy of her book and a one hour coaching session with her. That’s not all!

Last Thursday at the Vino 100 wine tasting for the 3 Day Breast Cancer Fundraiser, I met & talked a great deal with a fabulous woman who owns some virtual office suites about 7 minutes from my house. I visited her website & thought, “Now, that’s what I need right now and how can I access that facility?” At the eWn event tonight as part of the raffle she was giving away a 1 year Corporate Prestige Virtual Office Package. I thought, oh my goodness, I’m going to win that. Bought me some raffle tickets and there ya go! I won it!

These are just 3 examples of the things & events that are happening for me on an almost daily basis!

I will absolutely continue to help business owners set-up, automate & be involved in Social Media as this goes hand in hand with my message above!

We shall see where this journey takes me . . . . The Things & Events That Happen When You Discover Your Purpose and Accept It . . . . . I’m just sayin’



Throwback Post: Are You Grateful


September 17 2013:

Overcooked chicken, almost burned fries and yummy pasta for dinner, some sort of racing/speed walking game with Thomas and Lillian, golf with a pinwheel and piece of chalk for the ball, being decorated with imaginary clothes, sparkles and tattoos by Lillian, shadows and streamers, reading a chapter of Heidi to Lillian, reading the story of “America the Beautiful” and about water bugs with Thomas, 20 minutes of goodnight rituals, one bowl of hot buttered popcorn for Mama …. and I’m going to bed overflowing with gratitude. Grateful we have food to cook, a back yard to play in, amazing imaginations, books to read, laughter and tickles and pillows and beds to sleep in …. and grateful for my little family! Sweet dreams y’all!
