Inspired

October 27, 2014

Last week I had the opportunity to hear an inspiring woman. The meeting was scheduled for 2 hours, but I could have listened to her for hours. She started off telling us a little of her back ground. She grew up in Lafayette Louisiana. Later she moved to Atlanta where she owned and operated her [...]

Distractions

October 20, 2014

Do you ever notice how many distractions you have during the day? You can be accomplishing great things and then one phone call can get you off track. You might have your whole day plotted out and one little small distraction might change the direction of your day. I’ve even been noticing how many little [...]

Stuff

October 13, 2014

I was driving the other day and noticed a piece of land that had been leveled off.  I was wondering what was going to be built on the site… a convenience store, apartments? Well, the sign has now gone up. Storage buildings. My brother was with me and I exclaimed… “All we need is another [...]

Take the Time

October 6, 2014

This week I was saddened when I heard my best friend’s brother passed unexpectedly Saturday. I think many of us are still in shock. Apparently, he had some arrhythmia issues with his heart that he had been dealing with recently. He was only 50 years old. I remember the last time I saw him, we [...]

September 29, 2014

It’s so hard for me to believe that Fall is here. Where did the year go? It seems like just yesterday I was slipping and sliding through the ice. Not only has the ice gone, but so has spring flowers and long hot summer days. I’ve started noticing the shift in the sun, leaves beginning [...]

Chain of Events

September 15, 2014

I experienced some vandalism during the past week. I came home one day to find my mailbox had been damaged. I wish I could say that I handled it all with ease… but I didn’t.  I was totally bent out of shape. Almost 2 years to the date after someone had plowed down my brick [...]

Full Circle

Years ago, my neighbor built some planter boxes along the side of his home so he could grow some tomatoes and peppers. Last year, the weather was odd and he had very few tomatoes . He decided just to grow peppers this year. I must tell you that we are not talking green peppers… no, [...]

Backroads

September 1, 2014

Saturday, I had a job opportunity that took me through some countryside that I’ve never been around. The truth is, I don’t live in a major metropolitan city, but I do live near the city … close to stores, shopping and interstates. That was not true this weekend. Saturday it was backroads, weeds & barnwood.  [...]

Simple

August 25, 2014

I attended some great seminars this past week. I believe no matter where we are in life we can always learn something new. One of the classes spoke about mindset… which you know, I’m all about. Do you have an open mindset or has your mindset gradually shut down due to how you were taught [...]
