The purpose of writing this is to encourage, support, and love everyone / anyone that is in need of a bit of TLC. Every one of us has hurts and worries at some point in our lives. Some of us more than others. Some are blessed with an amazing support system to help us through the tough times. But there are some of us that don't have the support system that everyone so desperately deserves. My goal is to reach out and give you my ear, shoulder, hand, love and support. If you are hurting right now… I welcome you with open arms. STOP! Take a deep breath, hold it, let it out slowly and decompress. I have a deep desire to encourage YOU! "Don't give up"!! I UNDERSTAND!! We may not experience the same hurts and pains, but believe me… this too shall pass. Whatever situation you may find yourself dealing with, you will get through this!! Make sure to surround yourself with people that love you!!
You are the only "YOU" in this entire world!! So special and unique!! My hope is that you will take my hand and let's find the courage and strength in your heart to make it through each day of every dry valley. If you are thirsty, we'll find water. If you are hungry, we'll find food. If you are hurting, we'll find a bandage . . . stay awhile and find comfort. You will not be judged or criticized here. You will be cared for and nurtured. You are a wondrous creation and you are beautifully made.
With that said, stay and let me give you a tall glass of unconditional love and support. Let me fluff up the pillows of care and comfort for you to rest your feet upon and take a break from your worrisome travels. Candles will be lit in your honor as a reminder to SHINE your light of love to help others whose flame has been smothered by life circumstances. Let me draw you a warm bath and let all your worries go down the drain. Let us find compassion for one another with every step of life.
I CARE!! And if I can offer words of encouragement, love and support to those of you who are hurting, struggling or angry with the world, I hope I can encourage you in some way. Thank you for allowing me to be here, to love you, and perhaps, make someone's day a little brighter!!!!! It is an honor to be among those of you in pain… I've been there and by grace, someone was there to hold my hand through dark and lonely times… Allow me to be here for you now… Hang in there and DON'T GIVE UP!!! YOU ARE LOVED!!!!
SENDING YOU ALL A HUGE BIG HUG OF LOVE AND SUPPORT!!!!
GROUP HUG EVERYONE!!!
My hope is for everyone to love, laugh, play fair, and help those in need.
NOW, go do your best!!!
What would you do if you knew there was a woman that no longer had the desire to
live. Feelings of dispare and worthlessness consume her as if there were no longer any purpose for her being in this world… or so she felt. Emotionally and
psychological abused by her husband, and shunned by her own family, she searched for a way to stop the agonizing pain that filled her empty heart. The thoughts
become so overwhelming she can think of nothing else and they become new friends. She always thought sleeping pills would be her exit door, but on this day,
she's inspired by a very tall bridge. With hundreds of twisted thoughts flooding her mind and spirit, a wave of relief comes over her. It'll soon be
done... No more pain. No more arguing. No more shame. No more pain. A calmness overwhelms her soul and a sense of relief fills her body and mind. It's
over… just a few more hours and it'll all be over.
She finds peace within the twisted new thoughts that dance in her mind and decides to celebrate her last remaining hours with an unknowing friend.. Wanting to write letters to her friends explaining why she made the choice to take her life and for them to feel no guilt about her decision. In each letter she listed items of hers to be given to the keeper of their letter. She feels no pressure and enjoys the company of a unknowing friend and a beautiful sunset on the beach. They spend a few hours together before parting ways. She hugs her friend good-bye for the last time and she's on her way.
While she drives to that tall bridge she'd scoped out earlier, she listens to the radio. As her mind wonders in and out of her twisted reality, she wounders how long it will take for someone to find her. She feels nothing but pain, from everyone. Still driving she hears the words... "You Are LOVED!" and she thinks "Yeah right", and "DON'T GIVE UP"…. "It's just the weight of the world"… What a funny line... It's just the weight of the world? What does that mean? "I will shine to guide you". She's distracted by the song on the car radio, "I will break it for you". She listens to the intoxicating voice behide the words. "Don't give up", "You are loved". The closer she come to the bridge the reality of her actions began to sink in "I will shine to guide you". She's consumed by sorrow and begins to cry uncontrollably. "I will lift it for you". She is unable to drive due to the tears streaming down her face. She pulls the car over and comes to a stop. It was as if she were hearing the words straight from God himself. "Don't give up", You are loved", "Because you are loved", "I will be there to find you", "I will shine to guide you", "Because you are loved", "You are loved". The bridge although in sight, is no longer her destination.
"That" song, that "INTERVENTION FROM GOD", became such a distraction during one crutial moment in her life kept her making the BIGGEST mistake. She was absolutely intoxicated by the song. She realized she had to get new thoughts into her mind and comes up with a very simple plan. Replaying the song over and over. Trying to change the destructive thought patterns. Instead, she drowns those horrible and ugly thought with "YOU ARE LOVED. DON'T GIVE UP. YOU ARE LOVED. DON'T GIVE UP". For the next three days she continued to listening to that one song over and over. Wanting so desparately for positive reinforcements to change her thought patterns.
She has claimed it has become her personal love song to herself. Today, this same woman is still listening to "THAT" song that helped her through a very dark and difficult time in her life. She is now happy and striving to create a loving and safe home for her two beautiful children, while trying to give hope and encouragement to others. That woman is so thankful for that precious moment in time, when she was given an unforgettable gift; touched by a young man's voice and his remarkable music. That woman, was/is me... WELCOME!!! YOU ARE LOVED HERE!!!!

LEMONS and SUGAR
This should probably be taped to your bathroom mirror
where one could read it every day.
You may not realize it, but it's 100% true.
1. There are at least two people in this world
that you would die for.
2. At least 15 people in this world
love you in some way.
3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you
is because they want to be just like you.
4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone,
even if they don't like you.
5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you
before they go to sleep.
6. You mean the world to someone.
7. You are special and unique.
8. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.
9. When you make the biggest mistake ever,
something good comes from it.
10. When you think the world has turned its back on you
take another look.
11. Always remember the compliments you received.
Forget about the rude remarks.
And always remember....
when life hands you Lemons,
ask for Sugar and call me over!
Good friends are like stars.
You don't always see them,
But you know they are always there.
'Whenever God Closes One Door He Always Opens Another, Even Though
Sometimes It's Hell in the Hallway'
I would rather have one rose and a kind word
from a friend while I'm here
than a whole truckload when I'm gone.
Happiness keeps You Sweet,
Trials keep You Strong,
Sorrows keep You Human,
Life keeps You Humble,
Success keeps You Glowing,
God keeps You Going
