1,000 SUBSCRIBERS, YOWZA!!!

Oh Mylanta! I started my blog on WordPress in July of 2012, while I was going through a rough time. My friend, Courtney was reading my posts on Facebook about what was going on and she suggested I start a blog. She said that by sharing my story, it may inspire and help others. So, I did just that nearly seven years ago.

Sometimes, I wrote a lot, daily and even multiple times a day at times. Other times, I would not be on here for several consecutive months. I’ve written many things, from poetry to life stories and from hot topic posts to sharing my photos.

Being a part of this community has been a blessing. I’ve come across many talented writers, musicians, photographers, sketch artists, and great minds with a lot to share. I’ve been inspired, brought to tears, dreamed a little more, laughed, and felt a plethora of emotions while looking at my feed. I love WordPress! Thank you for including me as part of the blogging family!

I would like to think that my words have also touched others, that maybe the things I’ve shared have inspired you? I come here to share pieces of me, in the hopes that even one person who stops by that day will find joy, that they find a kindred spirit, or that they have found inspiration for their next blog, song, sketch, poem, or other creation. I come here to look at what you share with the same hopes for myself.

So far, it’s been a wonderful time! I enjoy contributing and also the contributions that many of you bring to this great community. From sharing our raw emotions to something funny we heard or read that day to showcasing our work, there’s so much wonderful content on WordPress. I’m thankful I get to be a part of this.

So again, thank you! Thank you to my 1,000 subscribers for being a part of my journey!!! Thank you for many great years and here’s to many more!!! I hope your day is filled with joy and love! Try to share a little kindness today!!! One person, one voice, and one act of generosity can make a difference!!!

keep-calm-600-followers-thanks-

I want to give thanks to Laura, who just subscribed to my blog, bringing my number of readers to 600! WOW! Thanks, to all of you for your support! And hey, stop by Laura’s blog and see what she has to say. She’s got a lot to talk about and I think it’s worth stopping by to read a little and say hello! 🙂

I am so humbled by the overwhelming amount of love, encouragement, and support I have been given since joining WordPress. I am beyond thankful to each of you that has read what I have to say, stopped by to give feedback or just to chat, offered up wise advice, made me laugh, and forged friendships with me. YOU ALL ROCK! Seriously, thank you! Thank you for letting me inspire you and also for inspiring me. It is such a joy to be a part of the WordPress family.

Life’s Many Blessings

Wht-God-Has-Done-

I remember when I used to write in my blog daily and sometimes it was even more than once a day. Now, I am lucky if I write in this once or twice a month. It’s not that I have less to say, just less time to say it online. I have become so busy that I just haven’t had the time to really sit down and put my thoughts into writing. Sometimes I feel badly about that. Though, I know I am just out there living my life.

As Thanksgiving draws ever nearer, I am humbled more and more. I have so much to be thankful for. I wanted to take another opportunity to express that. There is a lot I could complain about, but there’s even more I can say thanks for. I think that’s something I should remind myself of more often. When I am having a tough day, I should tell myself how good I have it, and to not sweat the small stuff. It can be oh so easy to get upset over someone cutting me off on the road, someone being rude, something at work not going right, just not getting a good night’s sleep, and so on. Sometimes it’s hard to have the right perspective, but I know it can be done if worked on.

I know I will have rough moments and sometimes, rough days. But, my goal is to get better at appreciating what I have more and complain less. What I have can always be taken away and that’s something we should all remember. Our material possessions, money, and even our loved ones can disappear. Nothing lasts forever, not the good, but not the bad either. So, I need to get through the bad and learn from it, because there’s always something to learn, something to take from things. And, I need to appreciate the good much more. So, here I am today to say how very thankful I am for all the blessings in my life. The way I look at it too, the bad moments are blessings in disguise because so much good has come from it all in the end. For all I have learned, for all I have gone through, for all I have lost, for all I have gained, for who I was, for who I am, and where my life is headed…..I am deeply thankful.

So tell me, what is something your past has taught you? What are you thankful for??

For Your Support, Thank you

There are moments when I’m not sure what to say

Such would happen to be the case for me today

Perhaps if I give myself a moment, I’ll come up with something from the heart

Because this writing challenge is one I planned to finish from the start

 

I appreciate the support that you all have shown me

It has shown that you have liked what you see

So I want to thank each of you for being a part of this

Your friendship, love, & support has left me in a great state of bliss

Thank you

I just wanted to tell you all today how very thankful I am for all of you. Thank you for supporting me, my blog, and for being my friend. 🙂

Merry Christmas, Soldiers!

I didn’t notice there was a deadline until now, but if you act now….perhaps you can get out your card in time! But fret not, even if you can’t….there are multiple groups that send soldiers cards and letters throughout the year, as well as put together care packages and other such acts of kindness. One is called Soldiers’ Angels, if you want to get involved, look them up! So many men and women can’t be with their families during a time when they want to be the most, over the holidays. So, let us brighten their days by letting them know we are thankful for what they do and honor their courage and sacrifice. Because of their sacrifices, we’re able to be with our families and I want them to know how much I appreciate that!

Thank you

On this the day before Thanksgiving, I want to give thanks for the blessings in my life, including all of you…my WordPress family. I have so much to be thankful for. I listed something every single day since November 1st on my Facebook account. I found the closer I got to Thanksgiving, the harder it got for me to choose something because I realize now more than ever how very blessed I am, how beautiful my life is, even in its darkest moments. 

I am thankful for God and His goodness, forgiveness, and grace. I am thankful for all He does for me, for how many times He’s saved me both physically and mentally. I am thankful for the many family and friends that I have had and currently have in my life. I am thankful for the many ways my life has been enriched and blessed because of them. I am thankful for the joy they bring me, the lessons they teach me, the ways they inspire me, the encouragement they give, the push and drive they instill in me, & most of all the laughter and love. I am thankful for most of all for my son. He has taught me more about unconditional love than I thought I’d ever know. He is a light in my life that I thank God for every single day. I am thankful for my amazing boyfriend, for the rock he’s been, for the love he gives me, for getting to know me and accepting me as is, for all he does, and for all he is. I am thankful for the joy my pets have brought to my life. My cats have all been so loyal, friendly, and loving. They’ve been more than just pets; they’ve been family. 

The relationships in my life are most cherished indeed. I try so hard not to take anyone I love for granted. I want everyone I love to know how special they are to me for as long as I have the chance to do so. Life is fleeting and none of us knows how long we have here. I want to make sure I don’t waste what time I have. Not worrying or stressing out isn’t something I can stop outright, but I have been getting better at focusing more on the good in my life and there is a lot of that. 🙂

Besides the people and animals in my life, there is so much more to be thankful for. I have a job and even though my hours were cut, at least I have an income. I like what I do and am happy for the most part with where I work. Being able to pay bills and do things like provide for my son is very satisfying. Giving my son a good birthday a couple weeks back meant a lot to me. I live in a nice house in a decent neighborhood. It is a very good feeling for both Doug and I. I have a car that works, gets me to where I need to go, and looks nice too. I have enough clothes to wear, food to eat, books to read, music to listen to, games and puzzles to challenge me and that also allows my family and I many fun things to do together, and so on. I have my camera to make memories with and help others do the same. I have my voice…allowing me to speak and to sing. I have bad eyesight, but with the aid of glasses…I can do most things. I am thankful for technology that allows people like me to have a better quality of life. I have great hearing which allows me to enjoy music, the sound of my son’s laughter, and so much more. I have my wit, intelligence, and compassionate nature. God gave me so many talents and I am thankful for each one. Instead of complaining about what I can’t do, I focus more on what I can and also working together with others. When we combine our talents, we find we can do so much more than we could do alone. Seriously, when I really think about it, my life is really beautiful. There are bumps in the road, bad things happen, and sometimes my mood isn’t all that great….but I look at the bad now and see it all as lessons to learn and also it helps me appreciate the good in my life that much more. 

Like I said in the beginning, I am thankful to all of you who read my blog. Some have only run across one post and decided they liked it and I never heard from them again and some are avid readers. No matter how many times you read my words, listen to a video I post, or look at a picture I share doesn’t matter in the end. Any and all support is very much appreciated. Thank for each view, like, comment, and re-blog. I have said it before, I will say it now, and will undoubtedly say it again….thank you for inspiring me and letting me inspire you. I like reading your blogs. I don’t always have something to say, though when I do, I will. 😉 Do you realize that many of your posts have influenced mine? You guys and dolls are great! And then telling me many times that I inspire you is so humbling. I had no idea I’d touch so many hearts with my blog. It’s an amazing feeling. I am beyond thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this and for each of you that I have interacted with. I love ya guys and dolls, a lot. 🙂

I hope that those of you celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow will have an amazing day, filled with love….no matter who you spend it with. May it be filled with joy and may you make wonderful memories to last you a lifetime. Enjoy your family, friends, and of course the food too. 🙂 I know there are those across the world that don’t celebrate this day, so for you I just wish you a safe and happy day, whatever you do and whomever you spend your day with. Whether tomorrow is Thanksgiving to you or just another day, perhaps still take a moment to be thankful for your many blessings. Well, I am out of here for a few days…got a lot going on, take care and much love to all of you. Again, thank you for your support. YOU ALL ROCK! ❤

Brangien Illuminated

I am Brangien [Brangaine] of Weisefort, Ireland, lady-in-waiting to my cousin Isolde, who became promised to King Marc of Cornwall. His nephew Tristan escorted us to England by ship. But Tristan and Isolde fell in love at sea. As ye may know, or will find out, they cite the philter they drank as the cause, over which I was supposed to keep vigil. I would like to share my perspective of how I have created good in the world through my herbs and observations. There is much to tell, including how I have adopted this odd language. In good time. My life is in God’s hands. –Inspired by the modern French translations of the Tristan and Isolde texts
