Soup 3 meals a Day

It's been a long week getting my show open.  Thankfully, my husband did all the food prep for the week.  He made 4 different pots of soup and got them in the fridge.  That made it easy to have healthy food... but I did eat soup 3 meals a day.  LOL.  Here are the soups… Continue reading Soup 3 meals a Day

I Stand All Amazed

My heart is heavy.  There has been much distress around me - from the news to people I am acquainted with, that shocks and saddens me.  In times of great distress I turn music that uplifts my soul.  Today I was searching for that one song that could enlighten my mind and came across...… Continue reading I Stand All Amazed

Satisfaction Saturday

Satisfied with Keen Sandals

Today I am satisfied with my Keen sandals.  I have 3 pairs.  That should tell you how much I love these shoes. These sandals are versatile, comfortable and up for all the activities I do...

Warrior Wednesday

A Warrior Works to Do What is Right

I have been obsessing over this thought in recent days.  I think it is because I am finding it harder and harder to find fellow warriors.  I mainly see soldiers... people who drift along with the crowd. A Warrior WORKS hard. Sadly, I am seeing a generation of lemmings... little soldiers matching around being told… Continue reading A Warrior Works to Do What is Right

Thought Tuesday

Wise Words

I've been obsessing lately about the words we choose to share with others.  Every day I remind others that words matter.  Whether it is a careless comment, a tantalizing Tweet, a snappy Snapchat, or a potent post on Facebook, the words we share have power!  Are we thinking about what we are saying? I am… Continue reading Wise Words

It’s not a Diet… It’s a Lifestyle

It's been a busy week.  I didn't get pictures of any of the food I ate, but rest assured that I have been successful in my Eat to Live goals. Fast food and crap food avoided.  I survived because this week my husband was willing to do the prep work, and a good friend brought… Continue reading It’s not a Diet… It’s a Lifestyle
