What you do speaks...


I read this quote today from 
Ralph Waldo Emerson
and it hit me
like a ton of bricks.

Because we can say all the 
‘right things’ to people
but, they are mere words
if action isn’t taken.
You know?

If I am being real...
I want my words to match my actions!

Recently, I have taken some
personality tests.

There’s the 
color test,
enneagram
Meyers-Brigss
and the 5 love languages

Some of what I have been learning...
make me laugh
and some maybe, grimace!

For those in the know-
I am a
blue/red
enneagram 3 with a 2 wing
ISFP
and my love languages are
words of a affirmation and quality time.

I mean yes,
there are some good qualities in these findings.
but, if I am being vulnerable...
some of the findings,
I am not sure I like!

The good in all of it-
I know I have room to grow.
even at my old age! LOL
I can recognize the good and the bad.

A few of the qualities of a 3 with a 2 wing:
they are
Motivators 
Enthusiastic 
and avoid Negativity!!
Yeah, that’s about right. LOL

So, tell me...
have you taken any of these tests?
What have you found out?

We’re you happy with them?

thankful even in the hard-times

I have so much to be thankful for. So much. I am counting my blessings this week leading up to Thanksgiving. But, here’s the deal, I also know there are many friends/family that this holiday will be the first without their loved one-I also know first hand, that hurt & heartache. Thanksgiving is always bittersweet for me, it reminds me of a specific holiday years ago, we sat beside a hospital bed, we prayed for a miracle and then in the end, for peace. My dad passed away the day after Thanksgiving that particular year. Not one thanksgiving day goes by that I don’t remember him. πŸ’”
If you’re celebrating this year for the first time without your loved one, I understand the hurt, sadness and sorrow. I can’t tell you the grief ever really goes away but, I will tell you this: the memories get sweeter & just a bit more beautiful as time truly softens, the loss. πŸ™πŸ»❤️πŸ™πŸ»
I’m here for you, if you want to talk. If you need to share, reminisce, laugh, scream or cry.-

I hope you are able to find something this week that brings you joy and that you can be thankful for!

Thank a Vet

Today we celebrate Veteran’s Day

So many of my family members and friends have served.
My dad and Uncles all served.

My dad served in the Korean War.
He met my momma while on leave.
What a beautiful love story that was/is.

Most vets do not talk about the time they served-
it always amazes me.


I cannot imagine what some of them went through
and yet, when they came home they were silent.
Some suffered from what we now know as PTSD.
they suffered in silence
and my heart hurts for them.


Today, I remember and thank each and every Veteran.
I hope and pray you know that our country is thankful
even if sometimes they ‘forget’ your amazing sacrifices 

Today, of all days...Thank a Vet!!
