Use It

Do you have special china or tea cups you use only for “special” occasions or don’t use at all? I do, But I use mine everyday. I have come to learn and live that everyday is a special occasion. Our lives are special occasions everyday, not just on some days we think. YOU are a special occasion. Get those fine collectibles out and make everyday a special occasion for you and for the fam. Go on, if you’ve got fine china, use it for dinner tonight. If you’ve got special pots for cooking, use them to make that dinner tonight. Get out that cutlery you’re saving and use it. Life is for living in the now. Go for it and enjoy it while you can.

I have tea cups that have been passed down to me and they are worth money. I use to keep them in a cabinet and just look at them. Heck not anymore, I love my tea and I thoroughly enjoy that hot cup of tea in those fancy little cups. So go on and enjoy. You are worth it. Worth more than those fancy plates, cups, cutlery or pots. Yup even the  linens. HAhahaha ;)

PS- I even use my tea cup saucers for cat food :o lol ;)

Remember, Lest we forget

November 11. I can only sit here and try to imagine what those soldiers, what the people of this world, felt when all was ceased.
I don’t need November 11 to remind me of the freedom I have at the expense of others.  I’m reminded every morning when I wake up safe and sound,  I’m reminded when I can dress how I like, I’m reminded when I pick up my bible with freedom to read Gods word, I’m reminded when I leave my house and walk the streets, I’m reminded when I am in society living amongst others, I’m reminded just being a woman who is able to vote, I’m reminded each and every time I enter church, I’m reminded right now writing these things and sharing them with you.

Lest we forget the other 364 days of the year as we live in freedom.

I am so thankful for what complete strangers have done and have sacrificed for me.

Let us remember everyday and not take it for granted.

Thank you soldiers. Thank you to both my grandfathers who sacrificed their lives, thank you.

Remember, lest we forget the other 364 days we live in freedom.

A Good Reminder

I received an email this morning and the person who sent it, explained how they were reading my blog and how encouraging it was to them and how they look forward to reading more. I also saw a post my daughter commented on on Facebook, and she went on to share her experience in a situation she was in and her gratitude for me, her mom :), who stood by her and was her voice when she didn’t have one.

I was, I am, very humbled. I am very grateful that my life’s experiences are able to help others. I am so grateful to God for turning these ashes to beauty.
Some days I feel discouraged and a little blah but it’s times like this that God reaches down, touches my heart and gently reminds me of my purpose and how good my life truly is.

Thank you! Thank you to all of you for reading my blog, for buying my book, for your continues support. And thank You God for always loving me so much and never leaving my side and for providing these bursts of blessings when they’re needed :)

Have yourselves a fabulous, blessed day :*

Poor Poor Me

Being poor is an attitude. Get in check with yourself and start counting the blessings you do have instead of blaming others and always “looking over the fence” at what someone else has. Sheesh, I was reading some posts on Facebook this morning and people will go off on having a hard life or being financially poor because of Toronto’s new mayor or because of what someone has done or didn’t do. This kind of living is hard on yourself and it keeps you stuck and unhappy.

Get up, show up and put on a right attitude. When your thinking is poor, so is your life. When you act poor, so is your life! No doubt people have hard times, I’ve been there but I decided I’m not going around looking at what I don’t have or constantly say, “I’m broke, I’m broke” No, it’s time to change that stinking thinking and it’s time to stop acting poor! Now today is a new day, wash up and put on a new attitude! Your life is now, stop waiting for your external world to change before you change your attitude and outlook on life. And let me tell ya, if you have kids guess what? they are watching and they are hearing it all. Do you actually want them to grow up feeling poor? Nope not me either!

Come on friends, lets pull it together, lets claim our life back and start living rich, start living fresh, start living well!

Happy attitude check day to you ;)

Ch Ch Ch Changes

Listen friends, life doesn’t change until YOU change. If nothing changes, nothing changes. Attitude, thinking, speaking, living. Life changes when YOU change.
I did it and I’m still doing it, and I’ll tell you, I’m happy, joyous and free today.

Time to stop looking out and start looking in. It’s not easy at first but as you keep at it, one small change a day, life becomes lighter, you start to feel at ease and your outlook on life changes and in turn God works through you and life takes a beautiful shape.

C’mon friends, life is for living, live it well!

Happy Saturday of change to you! ;)

Do It

I’ve come to terms with the hurts and un-forgiveness from my past. This brings me to a place of serenity. This also brings me to a place where my “angry cup” is not so full that when life happens, I don’t “freak” out. I urge you; turn around and face your demons, if not, they’ll keep chasing you down. By suppressing them doesn’t mean you deal with them. Free yourself. I’ll be honest with you, I don’t have many days when I’m upset. I accept that life happens and I remember how grateful I am to have a Savior who saves me from myself and the daily situations that happens in life.

Don’t let your past hold you. You hold it and make something beautiful from it <3

Go on do it, YOU can (yes, yes YOU can!) I guarantee happiness, and freedom come along with it  ;)
