Song of the Day – It’s Christmas!

Beautiful song!

song-of-the-day

Did I say something about not posting for a while 😄 I thank you all for the lovely wishes and comments yesterday! I appreciate each single one of you so much and I feel blessed to be part of this strong and kind-hearted community!

Yesterday, I heard this song from a formation that makes my jaw drop every time I hear a song of theirs. Not only the versions the create but how they do it: No instruments – only voices! This song is just so perfectly fitting Christmas day. The lyrics are beautiful and what they made of that song is stunning! Enjoy and spend a wonderful Christmas Day 💖

Unashamed with a Side of Imperfections

I am very far from perfect and embodied of imperfections.  I know, I know, it’s extremely hard to believe!  I am only human.  I do make mistakes on a regular basis, and probably more often than I realize.  I will say things, unintentionally, that may be offensive to others, without even realizing it.  I may have done something, unknowingly, that may have hurt someone’s feelings.  Admittedly,  I know I’ve done someone wrong as opportunity presented itself, to where it haunts my conscience.  Regardless, it’s my life’s story, which I hope may inspire others. Without poor choices and mistakes made, valuable life lessons would not have been learned.  Hopefully, because of these learned lessons, I will instinctively know how to better handle and/or conduct myself in future situations, if and when they ever arise.  Life is an ongoing adventure faced with undaunting obstacles.  I have grown up having high expectations of myself.  Now that I am somewhat grown up, I have learned to show myself more leniency and to be more self-forgiving.  Or  I can just do or think the obviously easy response to everything from now on and just say fuck it. 😊

Eight Under the Belt

Reblogging this as TODAY, Feb. 8, 2016, marks my 9th year anniversary of being diagnosed with that dreaded breast cancer. My personal account of it all, but of course, with my sense of humor. Enjoy!

Reflections of the Heart

After a little over eight years, I thought it time I start blogging about that dreaded disease I had the displeasure to experience, which seems so long ago.  Yes, folks, I’m talking about cancer.  Breast cancer to be more specific.  Or as I called them, “The Intruders”.  I remember it like it was yesterday.  The norm was to have your first mammogram at the age of forty, so a month after I turned that golden age, I schedule my first mammogram.  The day came, and I was a little nervous not knowing what to expect.  Thank goodness, the technician had wonderful bedside manners, and was very compassionate all the while explaining what was happening step-by-step.  The standard procedure is to be notified at a later date after two radiologists read the film results.

I ended up receiving written correspondence from the facility.  After reading it, I wasn’t really too concerned…

To Find Ms. Kind

I absolutely love Marissa’s writing and had to share her hilarious story of our meet-up! 😁👍❤

Glorious Results Of A Misspent Youth

It started out a day just like any other day
Blue skies, pleasant temperatures, typical L.A.
But this Friday was special as I was psyched to be
Meeting soon at Starbucks, a group of bloggers 3.

For a wholesome day of fun, coffee, gossip, laughter
With Erika Kind, Corinneonline, Carolina at Yesterday After
All the women were so sweet starting off you see
But I don’t remember much after sipping my coffee…

And the next thing you know, well, the scene was quite outrageous
My head was pounding as I woke in a hotel in Vegas
Corinne was sprawled out on the couch and starting to come round
Carolina on the floor, Ms. Kind was nowhere found

Strange clothing strewn across the floor, emptied bottles of booze
A gap where I once had a tooth, Corinne had new tattoos
And in the other rooms we found a tiger and a…

By the time you read this I will have been on the road for several hours!!  We have talked recently about the importance of networking and meeting new people, so here’s your chance.  Feel free to leave a link to your blog post or page and a little info about yourself in the comments and then reblog!  Great way to network.

For those of my readers that are not bloggers take a few moments and scan the links in the comments as there are so many talented writers on WordPress.  One of my favorite things about WP is it serves as a social platform allowing me to discover so many talented individuals!
