Cherish time with loved ones!

Life as we know it seems to just pass us by, doing this/that going here/there! Have you told the people you care about the most how much they mean to you lately? Do they make you smile, laugh, or touch your life in a special way?  Maybe it is someone very close you see day in and day out or maybe it is someone you're not so directly connected to.  What ever your situation please don't let another minute go by without telling them how much they mean to you!

I have an aunt that is more like a sister and is only five years older than myself. She has been sick with cancer for some time now and her last months of life have just been hell.  It is so sad to watch someone you care so deeply about go through such a horrific ordeal.  I can honestly say that I have a new found respect for her, she gave it such a fight, the lord just needed her more.  Her battle, I am sure was like most struggling to stay alive and beat the deadly disease, her spirt was full of hope and she was willing to do what ever it took to beat it.  She had beat this nasty disease once, twice before.  I have to say that I for the longest time thought she would beat it again.

All I know is I am glad that I had the opportunity to spend some time with her and I really was able to tell her how I felt about her and what she meant to me.  We had so many things in common and I really looked up to her.  I will miss her dearly!  A part of my heart went missing today and life seems really bleak.  "Oh" dear lord please take good care of our Sweet Sweet Mary!  We will miss her bright shinning smile, her dear dear heart of gold and most of all her desire to live life to it's fullest.

May you rest in peace and comfort and may God bless your soul!

Getting close to the Wild!

 Here are some pic's of a trip we took this summer to a near by safari park.  Even though our vehicle was going to need a total scrub down, we had a total blast!  Have a look for yourselves!

This place was crazily amazing and the animals were so gentile.  I honestly think they would have gotten into the car if we would have let them!  

Hope you enjoyed the photos and have a great monday.

Works of Art!

This is some of the work I have done and what has brought me to where I am today!  I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I have enjoyed creating it!

I hope you have a beautiful and blessed day!

The start of something new!

Let me introduce myself!

I am a daughter, wife and mother.  I love all things beautiful and I can't get enough of textiles, color and design.  I am previously a hairstylist and nail technician, who longs to find my purpose in life!  I know that everyone has a purpose and it is all God given.  Ever since I was a little girl people have been telling me I have a God given talent and I should use it.  I have loved making people beautiful and feel good about themselves.  However, I am limited and still feel the need to express my creativity and feed my soul.  

Life is so precious and it passes by so quickly.  I am sure that you all have heard the expression "Life Sucks and then you Die"!  I have experienced so much heartache and been so frustrated at life lately and have felt like why even bother?  I am a firm believer in the good Lord above and know that there is only one reason why we are all here.  God's given purpose!  I have had so many questions for the Lord lately and I just keep coming back to the same thing over and over, what is my God given purpose why am I here and what am I doing?  

I am pretty sure that I am not alone in feeling this way at all and I know for certain that everyone has asked themselves this question at some point in their life.  Well, I am going to go with what I know best and it is time to really dig deep and reach for my God given purpose.  I am thrilled that I am on my way to prove that my creative outlet is the purpose.  You can be alive, but are you really living with all your soul and being?

I heard something recently that really got my attention and am not sure who spoke it, "How we spend our day's is how we spend our lives"!  These are words to truly "live" by.  I don't know about you, but I am not willing to keep living each day just breathing.

I will be creating, designing and soul searching for the rest of my life, HOW ABOUT YOU?
