YOU are beautiful!! ::hugs:: :-)

Tuesday, December 04, 2012



You are more than that number on the scale. Don't let that cause you to give up. The road is sometimes difficult, but the rewards are so great!! Hang in there! Let's do this together.



Challenge for today: Look in the mirror several times today & say "You are beautiful." (Thanks Kalantha -- we did this as a team challenge recently).

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

P.S. Looks like little Saige can go home TODAY!!! Yay!!!! Thanks so much for your prayers. Y'all are emoticon !!!!

    I love this. It's funny but I was listening to my ipod yesterday and the first four or five songs were about being beautiful and embracing your beauty. I thought it was pretty ironic because I had just been very critical and negative towards myself. I feel as though God wanted me to hear those songs, many of which I had never heard before. He wanted me to know that I "AM" beautiful.

And anytime I see myself in the mirror I am going to do this.
Thank you.

    That is great news about your niece. Just think about the wonderful example you will be setting for her as she grows up. Every little girl needs a healthy, strong woman for a role model!

Live for today!

Monday, December 03, 2012



I know I've blogged on this before, but I need to hear it again today. emoticon

Live for today. Let go of the past. Keep moving forward toward the future, but don't worry about the future.

Be here now, in this moment. If you worry about the past or the future, you might miss something awesome today.

Your hard work today will pay off in huge dividends tomorrow.

A couple of you have asked me about my niece's name. It is Saige Louisa.

So you can get some perspective on how small she is, here is a photo of her holding my brother's pinkie finger:



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Be proud of who you are (plus more pics of my new niece).

We are all human & we all make mistakes. Keep pushing, keep trying & don't ever give up!!



Be kind to yourself. Forgive yourself when you make a mistake. Just keep looking forward & move on.



A couple of pics of my new niece:

She totally rocks this hat!!



She's not much bigger than my brother's hand.





Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Be all you were intended to be.

Saturday, December 01, 2012



Recreating yourself is hard. It takes sacrifice & letting go of some things you've been holding onto for a long time. It takes serious self-examination. It can even be painful.

Instead of dwelling on the negative aspects of recreating yourself, focus on the final result. You'll be better, stronger, faster (kinda sounds like "The $6 Million Man," right?) emoticon

Always focus on the positives, then the hard stuff won't seem so bad. Let's do it together!! There is always strength in numbers.

Blessings to you!!! emoticon emoticon

    Yes, we all need to focus on positive side of aspect, instead of negative side. I heard the words like " No pain No gain " ? We should appreciate our hard work and sometime pat our shoulder ourselves. Have a wonderful weekend. .

for all your prayers, sweet thoughts & well wishes.



My brother, his wife & the new baby. Aren't they so cute?

My hubby is taking my 2 older nephews to the hospital today to see my sis-in-law & the baby. I am here at their house doing a bit of cleaning & making sure dear brother doesn't do backflips off the staircase or anything. emoticon Right now he's sleeping.

I'll get their youngest off the bus this afternoon. My sis-in-law will be released this evening but the baby has to stay in the NICU for a bit longer.

Please pray that the baby doesn't get jaundice & that she can come home by the end of the weekend. That would be awesome.

Thanks so much for your support. You are my heroes!! emoticon





Blessings to you!!
