Another Year

It's hard to believe that another year is almost over. As a child it seemed like months took forever to end. Now as an adult the months seem to fly by.

I have learned with age that as the days and months fly by we need to embrace and cherish every minute of it. I have been blessed with a healthy and fairly easy 2013, but so many have not.
Our family has had some speed bumps on the road of life, but nothing in comparison to what others are facing. I have always said through some of my most difficult trials in life someone somewhere is going through something much worse.

We need to learn to understand our difficulties and pray for the strength to do something constructive with the pit falls in life. In saying that I know it's not always easy to do. We're so quick to focus on the negative in life and forget to look at the positive. My Soul Writing Workshops and my T-shirt line have become my positive. It's extremely rewarding to share my hurt and see others grow from it. Your story has meaning and can bring life to those hurting. Find your voice and share it.

As you say goodbye to 2013 remember to give thanks for it; along with giving thanks in advance for 2014.

"Life without thankfulness is devoid of love and passion. Hope without thankfulness is lacking in fine perception. Faith without thankfulness lacks strength and fortitude. Every virtue divorced from thankfulness is maimed and limps along the spiritual road." -John Henry Jowett

I was drawn to the smiles on their faces and the love in their eyes. They met, accepted each other, and acted as if they had been lifelong friends. Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.


There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
