Why not YOU be that SOMETHING?


At times I believe we wait on the sidelines for something dramatic or should I say drastic to transpire in our lives before we take action.  It could be a divorce, an illness, loss of a job, or traumatic event that brings us to our knees. No, I am not saying these types of occurrences…

Well, well, well  . . . we survived the ‘end of the world’ at least twice in the last two years. What do you think will be predicted for 2013?  (sigh)  When will these idiots realize that the only, ‘ending to life’ , will happen . . . unexpectedly?  That there is not a pre-planned…

A Mother’s Gift ~


Being a Mother is a powerful gift that God has given – something to be cherished for all the days we have the opportunity to love the gift souls He has entrusted us with. Each child was created for a purpose – some of their purposes begin in the womb and others as they grow….
