A Point in my life.

I have reached a point in my life where I feel it is no longer necessary to try and impress anyone.
If they like me the way I am, good and if they don't, it's their loss.

Actions tell you everything.

A person's actions will tell you everything you need to know about them.

Life is short, Live it.

Life is short, Live it. Love is rare, Grab it. Anger is bad, Let go of it.
Fear plays with your mind, Face it. memories are sweet, Cherish them.

Don't look back with regret.

Don't look back with regret, you can't change the past.
Look forward with hope, It's another chance to start again.

Grandchildren are like stars.

Grandchildren are like stars. They sparkle and shine.

The memory lives on.

It only takes a few seconds to say goodbye to someone you love but it will take
the rest of your life to forget them. Their memory will live on forever in your heart.

Trust & Love

You will always love the one you trust but you won't always trust the one you love.

Live YOUR Life.

You were born to be real, not perfect. You are here to be who you really are, not what others want you to be. Don't waste your time worrying about what others may think. Just be happy with who you are. Live YOUR life. 

People hear what they want to hear.

Sometimes, it's just not worth your time trying to explain things to others.
Some people will only hear what they want to hear.

Life Is like a camera.

Life is like a camera. 
Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives.

And if things don't work out, Just take another shot!

None of us are the same.

We are all human beings but in no way are we the same. We all have qualities that make us individual and unique. Things that make us special. There is a story behind each and every one of us, a reason why we have become the person we are. Think about that before you judge anyone.

Life is too hard to get through alone.

Just because someone seems ok, doesn't mean that everything in their life is. Even the strongest

of people need to know that someone has their back and will always be there for them. Everyone,
at some point, will need friends or family they can rely on and if needed, a shoulder to cry on.
Life is just too hard to get through alone.

To my beautiful child.

To my beautiful child. No matter what age you may be, I will hold you tight, support you, guide you, teach you, hug you, protect you and love you with all my heart and soul. Since the day you were born and until I draw my last breath, I will be there for you, no matter what. I love you.

There is no greater gift than Family.

Family ~ Where life begins and love will never end. There is no greater gift than family.

I'm proud of all my kids.

I am a parent who is not just proud of one of my kids but all of them.

Every one of our children will make us proud in different ways. Some will do it more often than
others but that doesn't meant we love them any more or less. Our kids are special, unique and
no matter what, we will always love them with all our heart.

Everyone is fighting their own battle.

Everyone is fighting their own battle, to be free from their past, to live in the present and create
a meaningful future for themselves. Don't judge ~ Have a heart.

You have to take the good with the bad.

You have to take the good with the bad, smile when you're sad, love what you've got and remember what you had. Always forgive, never forget, learn from mistakes, never regret. People change, things go wrong, so just remember, life goes on.

Each day I'm thankful.

Each day I'm thankful for nights that turned into mornings, friends that turned into family, dreams that became a reality and likes that turned into love.

There is always something to be thankful for so take time each day to remember just how blessed you are.

My wish for you.

To all of the wonderful people in my life, this is my wish for you.

May you always have happiness to keep you smiling, trials to keep you strong, success to keep confident, faith to keep you going and belief that each day is a gift..

Please pass on this wish to all the wonderful people in your life.

A measure of your wealth.

The real measure of your wealth is how much you'd be worth if you lost all your money.

We often place a lot of value on the material things we have and they make us feel good. They make us feel successful and that we have achieved something, however true wealth comes from your own worth, the type of person you are, what those who love you really think of you. Knowing that if you had nothing to give but yourself, that would be enough.

I was raised to show respect.

I was raised to show respect. I wasn't dragged up, I was taught to knock before I open a door. Say hello when I enter a room. Say please, Say thank you and show respect to my elders. I let another person have my seat if they need it, say polite things and help others when they need me to, not stand on the side lines and watch while someone struggles. I will hold the door for others walking behind me and say "excuse me" should I need to pass. I love people for who they are, not what I can get from them and most importantly, I was raised to treat people exactly how I would like to be treated by others. It's called respect.

People need to learn.

People need to learn that their actions do affect other people.
So be careful what you say and do. It's not always about you.

There is a role for everyone you meet.

Throughout your life you will come to understand that there is a role for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will love you, some will use you and some will teach you. The ones you remember the most are the ones who brought out the very best in you because those people are amazing and it's being with those people that will remind you every day why it's worth it.

A Family is like a tree.

Family. Like branches of a tree we will grow in many different directions, but our roots remain
firmly in the ground, provide us with strong foundations and will keep us together forever.

I Love My Family.

Have no regrets...

Never regret anything that has happened in your life. It cannot be changed, undone
or forgotten so take it as a lesson learned and move on.

Common sense doesn't grow everywhere.

Common Sense is a flower that just doesn't grow in everyone's garden!

Dealing with Life.

I smile and act like nothing's wrong. It's called dealing with life and staying strong.

Time with Family is important.

Time spent with your family is important so spend it with them now and don't wait until it's too late.

Great Friends are hard to find.

Great friends are HARD to find, DIFFICULT to leave and IMPOSSIBLE to forget.

There are no accidents in life.

There are no accidents in life. All things in our lives happen for a reason and all of the people we meet long the way will play a part in our lives. some big, Some small. Some will make us cry, some will hurt us, some will betray us but all these people we meet along the way make us stronger. They will all teach us valuable life lessons that will transform us into a better, stronger and wiser person.

I don't hold grudges.

I don't hold grudges, I remember facts and learn my lessons. 

I'm a woman ~ Strong and Proud.

I don't consider myself hot or gorgeous. I don't have an amazing figure. I'm far from being considered a model but, I'm me. I eat food, I have curves, I carry a little more weight than I should, I have scars, I have a history, some people love me, some people like me, some can't stand me. I have done good, I have done bad. I love my PJ's and go without make up. I'm random and crazy. I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. I am who I am, you can take me or leave me. I won't change for nobody. When I love you, I do it with all my heart. I make no apologies for the way I am. I am a woman ~ Strong and Proud.

Real people couldn't care less.

Fake people have an image to maintain. Real people couldn't care less what others think.

Everything happens for a reason.

Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes, the bad things that happen to us will lead us 

down the road to some of the best things we could have ever imagined.

Never lose hope because miracles happen every day.

No matter what, never give up.

No matter how alone you feel. No matter how impossible things may seem. 

No matter how hard things get. Never Give Up.

We build others up.

We build others up because we know what it's like to be torn down.

Often, the kindest people are those who have been through a period in their lives where they were put down, abused, taken advantage of and made to feel worthless. It is that understanding and experience that makes a person truly appreciate what kindness is and that to bestow it on others is by far the best way to help those who are in need.

Have faith in what will be.

Accept what is, Let go of what was and always have faith in what will be.

Be thankful for the hard times.

Every struggle in your life has shaped you into the person
you are today. Be thankful for the hard times, they can only
make you stronger and wiser.

Focus on what's holding you together.

At the end of the day you can focus on what's tearing
you apart or what's holding you together.

But if you focus on what's tearing you apart, you will find
it hard to move forward with your life and the things that
are holding you together will start to slip away.

Happiness keeps you sweet.

Happiness keeps you sweet.
Trials keep you strong.
Sorrows keep you human.
Failure keeps you humble.
Success keeps you glowing.
Friends and family keep you going.

I don't know what's worse.

I don't know what's worse. 

People who lie or the people who think I'm stupid enough to believe their lies!

Show your heart to others.

People can't see what goodness is in your heart.
All they will ever see is what you do.

Be a good person and show others your heart.

Miracles happen every day.

Never stop believing in hope
because miracles happen every day.

Moments that make your life complete.

Our life goes by in the blink of an eye, so be sure to appreciate
the many beautiful moments you spend with family and friends.
It is those moments will truly make your life complete.

You need to bounce back higher than ever.

It doesn't matter how low you fall.
What's important is how high you bounce back.

We have all experienced low points in our lives and hit rock bottom,
but it is not this that will define us. What truly shows our character
is how we react to it and how high we "Bounce Back"

Learning how to heal yourself.

You will begin to heal yourself when you let go of the things that hurt you in the past, forgive those who have done wrong to you and learn to forgive yourself for the mistakes you have made.

Everyone Has Been Through Something.

Everyone has been through something that has changed them in a
way that they could never go back to the person they once were.

The Power of Prayer Is Strong.

Heavenly Father, walk through my house and take away 
all our worries and illnesses. Please watch over and heal my family and friends. Bring quiet where there is chaos. Bring light where there is darkness and put love in our hearts. In Jesus name, Amen. The power of prayer is strong.

Passing on blessings for a brand new week.

Blessings for a brand new week.

May angels guide you every step of the way.

and most of all protect you from harm.

Learn to love with all your heart.

Learn to love with all your heart and accept the faults of others in your life. 

Remember, anyone can love a rose, but it takes
a great heart to include the thorns too.
